Updates & Thoughts:
12/7/2016 - Took a brief hiatus from RS over the past weeks. I picked it back up a week or so ago and finally finished getting 99 slayer and thieving. I'm trying to pick up a few flips here and there. Been creeping on all your merchz logs for a few days now, thanks for the inspiration everyone!

12/12/2016 - I feel like I should start to clean out logs below a certain threshold.. maybe after exams are over

1/14/2017 - Been away on holiday and didn't get to do much flipping. Hoping to get back into it these coming weeks..

1/24/2017 - I'm flipping (or at least trying), I swear! Need to get around to uploading.

5/26/2017 - Still have an ongoing flip that I'm working on, haven't really been playing much since max. Trying to get back into it.

Inactive flip - 1/30/17 - 10:40PMThis took FOREVER. I was buying these for some farm runs and I noticed the margins were pretty good (they dropped down some before I finished buying, I don't remember what they started at) so I put in an order for 5k. They bought quick enough, but it took ~8 days to sell them all back at 5k. They sold pretty consistently, they were just slow about it. Can't be upset though it turned out good for me.Inactive flip - 1/30/17 - 10:40PMThis took FOREVER.

Inactive flip - 1/29/17 - 6:25AMThis was the day after the buff. Got my hands on 2 and then spent a day to a day trying to sell them. I was really happy with it (and still am, don't get me wrong) but I saw how high the price went at some point and was a little upset I didn't hold on to them. Oh well, this'll still be hard for me to beat!

hey snakez, it's not against any rules to compile several trades as one upload, i just always keep to doing it as long as it's not from to big times apart and/or a huge price difference

Hey snakes when I wanna work on merching drygores how do I find margin on themail with out buy it and selling. I don't wanna lose one on the first one a buy just to find a margin. Do u have a better way I can learn if u are willing to help me?


Honestly there's probably someone better to ask, I see others with much better margins on drygores. That being said, just play around with the prices. I started by buying ~300k under and would flip for ge mid price but since then I've started buying lower and selling higher (it just took some time to get used to the item). Depending on the time of day they'll buy faster/slower so you can use the speed to influence your buy price too. Hope that helps, I'm pretty sure Divine has an excellent video somewhere on t90 weapons so you should check it out!

What's the average amount of time in between your big cost flips would you say?


Like Ascensions? Or the Nox bows? The Ascensions are pretty quick, usually buying and selling within 30-45 minutes (might try to experiment and up the margins some, I've just been busy IRL the past few days). I've been trying to use an alt to flip more of those every 4 hours (again, been busy so this hasn't happened too much). As for the Nox bows, I'm probably not the right person to ask about those. I've only bought 2 (still learning these) and the first one bought and sold within 30 minutes but the next one took a few hours to sell.

Idk if that's the kind of answer you're looking for? Let me know if I can reword anything.

Thats what I was wondering. Ive been trying to flip the ascensions I just never get the prices right so it takes me ages to do it.


I don't get it right every time, sometimes it takes me a while to buy/sell/both but just stick with it and you'll start to get a feel for where to price the item. I'm sure I could get better margins, but I'm happy with the speed so I won't complain.
