The high alchemy calculator allows Runescape players to determine the best and most profitable way to use the High Alchemy spell to convert items to gold and gain experience. The calculator lets a player determine which items on the market to purchase so gold and experience are gained efficiently.
The High Alchemy spell requires the use of one nature rune and five fire runes. The fire runes can be supplied by a Fire staff or any staff that generates fire runes. Calculators normally base calculations on the assumption that fire runes are not being purchased. Some calculators only focus on profitable items, some on all items, and some give conversion rates for both the current and old school versions of Runescape.
