Effective ways of training magic are typically mundane and usually involve repetitive clicking. However, many players find achieving the appropriate levels for teleports, high-level jewelry enchantments, combat spells, and improved magic Defences well worth the time and monetary investment. Magic is relatively easy to train, but can be time consuming and expensive.

Level 1 - 13

Cast the basic strike spells on monsters such as goblins, cows, and other weak creatures. You can also head to the Edgeville Monastery to train on Monks, as they heal themselves and do negligible damage.

Alternatively, 'splashing' Confuse or Weaken (-65 or less magic bonus) can be an effective option. This allows the spell to be cast repetitively without having to wait for the draining effect inflicted on the enemy to wear off. One recommended target for this strategy is the Zamorak mage behind the Varrock castle's staircase.

Players can complete the Imp Catcher and Witch's Potion quests for a total reward of 1, 200 Magic experience. This allows players to quickly reach level 10 Magic without spending coins on runes.

Level 13 - 27

If currency is an issue, using Fire Strike on monsters is an effective training method. Make sure to equip either a fire or air staff. Good targets are anything that drop coins or advance a slayer task.

Alternatively, if wealth is not an issue, a player can simply use the best available strike, bolt, or blast spell.

Good options for training include:

Level 27+ (Possibly Profitable)

Depending on whether or not the prices are agreeable, a player can use Enchant Level 2 Jewellery to make money. When they reach level 27 magic, one can purchase an equal amount of Emerald Rings and Cosmic Runes(as well as a Staff of Air or 3 Air Runes, and use the spell on an emerald ring to make a Ring of Dueling(8). These can later be resold for a profit. A typical inventory would consist of the player's stack of cosmic runes, and 27 emerald rings (with a Staff of Air equipped). Although it is physically impossible to tell the difference between the two rings, a player can withdraw 27 cosmic runes from their bank (per inventory) to know that they have enchanted every ring.

NOTE: The prices of Emerald rings and Cosmic Runes change every day, as well as the Ring of Dueling. Check the Grand Exchange prices to make sure you will at least break even with this method.

Experience per hour can reach 55, 000 if the player is consistent.

Profit per hour depends on the prices of the items.

Level 19 - 45/55 (Cheap method)

Starting at level 19, one could repeatedly 'splash' Curse to gain Magic experience. Note: If Curse lands on an enemy, it cannot be recast on that enemy until the effects wear off. 'Splashing' bypasses this timer, as the spell never landed on the enemy in the first place. Recommended equipment includes Staff of Earth (or alternatively a Mud battlestaff) with armour that provides negative magic bonuses (ex. Iron armour or Dragonhide, and metal shoes). A magic bonus of -65 or lower is strongly recommended. Good spots to train with Curse include the skeletons at level 1 Wilderness (you could safespot using the wilderness ditch), the caged Monk of Zamorak at Varrock Palace (not recommended for higher levels), or the caged Lesser Demon inside Wizard's Tower (best option due to its high magic Defence and drops).

Each spell yields 29 experience; around 33, 000 experience per hour if clicked excessively

Level 43+ (Alternative)

Use Superheat Item to create steel bars. Selling the bars could allow you to break even, take a loss, or make a little bit of money depending on the prices of Nature Runes and Steel Bars. This is a favourable option if you need to also train your Smithing skill.

Level 45 - 55 (Expensive method)

Equip a Staff of Air and hold about 1, 895 law runes, then repeatedly cast Camelot teleport. Players receive 55.5 experience per cast, so assuming law runes cost 200 coins each, the price per experience point is approximately 3.6 coins. This will give you about 80, 000 experience per hour.

Level 55+

Cast High Level Alchemy on various items for 65 Magic experience per cast. Popular items include yew longbows, maple longbows, rune daggers, and others. It is common to lose money casting High Level Alchemy for the purpose of increasing experience, but astute players may find profit in purchasing and alchemizing some items.

One may also consider participating in the Alchemist's room in the Mage Training Arena. Players receive bonus experience and are given a chance of negating rune costs when alchemizing certain items in the arena, although often with little monetary gain.
