Let’s Go To The Grand Exchange OSRS!

The Grand Exchange OSRS is one of the places every player has heard of or visited. It’s been an inseparable part of the game since February 26th, 2015. There’s a 75% threshold in the content polls through which players decide what kind of updates they want in the game, and Grand Exchange OSRS passed by 76.3%.

So why is Grand Exchange OSRS so important for the players? Let’s talk about its functions and how it can be useful.

The Grand Exchange OSRS, also known as GE, is pretty much a trading system where players can purchase and sell tradeable items. It’s the ultimate marketplace! If you’re a member, you get eight Grand Exchange OSRS slots in which you can trade. For free players, the slots are only three.

Here’s a tip regarding the limited slots in the Grand Exchange: compress things into item sets! If you compress items together, you can trade the entire set at once instead of having to trade each one individually. It’s quite convenient and you can easily do it. Right-click the Grand Exchange OSRS ge clerk and choose the “Sets” option. This brings up the “Items sets” interface where the available items are listed. Pick the “Contents” option from the right-click menu and if you have all the necessary items, you can choose the “Exchange” option and swap them for the full set. Turning the set into its components requires a similar process, involving the “Items sets” interface. It’s quite simple.

There is a limit which restricts the buying rate to a certain quantity and it’s reset every 4 hours. Some items that are connected in a way also have a connected buying limit so you can only buy a certain amount of each of them. For example, if you reach your limit on the 4-dose Prayer potions, you can’t buy Prayer potions of 3 doses. Good thing is there is no such limit for selling items.

Another restriction that exists on trading in the Grand Exchange OSRS is the one for new accounts. The restrictions on new free-to-play accounts include being blocked from selling items on the Grand Exchange OSRS until their logged-in time is more than 18 hours or they gain at least 7 quest points. This prevents getting botted or black-market goods from entering the OSRS economy.

Trading between players is still possible and frequently used, of course, but the nice thing about the Grand Exchange OSRS is that you don’t have to advertise, meet people or wait for the trades to finish. The coins and items from the trades, even if they were just partly finished, can be collected at any bank or deposit box. Of course, you receive a message in your chatbox when the status of the offer is updated.

However, certain items can’t be traded using the Grand Exchange OSRS but can still be exchanged by traditional player-to-player trade. Such non-tradeable items are all sorts of burnt foods, partially charged games necklaces, a slice of cake, recipe items, Castle Wars bandages, and others.

There were similar trading systems before the Grand Exchange OSRS was implemented – we had the trading post and the older marketplaces in Falador and Varrock, but GE is definitely outdoing them all. 

How to access Grand Exchange OSRS?

The Grand Exchange is very easy to access and there are multiple ways to get there. It’s located in Varrock, east of Edgeville and south of the Wilderness. We’re going to put together some of the most convenient ways to reach the Grand Exchange OSRS:

• By using a Varrock Teleport tablet or spell and walking north until you reach the Varrock castle, then moving a little to the east.

• By using an amulet of glory or fairy ring code d•k•r to get to Edgeville and then walking east.

• By using the tunnel northwest of the Grand Exchange (keep in mind it requires 21 level Agility).

• By using Ring of Wealth to teleport directly to the Grand Exchange.

• By using a canoe station (it requires 12-57 Woodcutting) to travel to one of these three places – Champions’ Guild station, Barbarian Village station, or Edgeville station. After that, you walk north from the Champions’ Guild station, east from the Barbarian Village station, or use the tunnel from the Edgeville station. 

• If you have completed the Varrock medium diary, you can make the Varrock teleports take you right to the Grand Exchange OSRS, saving yourself some walking.

• By using a skills necklace which can teleport you to the Cooks’ guild, and then going a little north.

OSRS Grand Exchange Prices

grand exchange osrs

We keep talking about selling and buying but we all know the most important thing about trade is the pricing. 

Around the Grand Exchange OSRS, there are six pricing experts who can show you the current prices for items. Each of them has their own field of expertise. 

For an item’s guide price, right-click Brugsen Bursen. For the prices of ores, check with Farid Morrisane. For the prices of logs, your guy is Relobo Blinyo. Bob Barter is who you turn to for the prices of herbs and for decanting potions, even noted ones. For prices for runes, turn to Murky Matt who can also decant charged items into full and empty charges, and for prices of some weapons and armors, talk to Hofuthand. 

Outside the Grand Exchange OSRS’ main entrance, you can find the tutor James who can give you information about membership bonds.

As for how the OSRS Grand Exchange prices are calculated, Jagex has never published their algorithms, so all we have are theories – some of which are pretty reasonable. The prices are updated depending on the recently traded prices and volumes. If an item has a low trade volume, the price update will be as rare as once a week. 

The OSRS Grand Exchange prices are mostly covered by the laws of supply and demand. When more people demand an item than they supply it, the price will be increased. The price will decrease when more people supply an item than they demand it. However, Jagex can intervene and correct the prices when they believe there is price manipulation on a large scale or when prices are boosted for scamming.

OSRS Grand Exchange Flipping

grand exchange osrs

You’ve probably heard about OSRS Grand Exchange flipping. The idea of flipping is to use the price limits of items sold at the Grand Exchange OSRS to your advantage. When you know the highest and lowest among of OSRS gold that an item has been sold for, you can buy them cheaply and sell them to profit. 

There are two things you need to do to find the price margins so you can start with OSRS Grand Exchange flipping. You need to have the maximum amount of gold that the item you picked can be sold for. To do that, you can buy cheap OSRS gold here. Put your buying offer way over the medium price that the Grand Exchange gives you so you can see how far up it can go. That’s the price at which you’re going to sell the item.

You need to find the price floor in the same way – the price floor is the lowest price at which you can get an item. That’s the price you’re going to be buying items at. The process of OSRS Grand Exchange flipping items is basically buying an item at the lowest price and selling them at the highest. It takes around 2-3 minutes to do it and you must be careful about picking the items you’re going to flip. If the item is cheap, you’re going to have to buy and sell a large amount of it to get some significant profit. And there is a limit to how much you can buy of one item for 4 hours. If you buy the maximum amount possible, then sell what you bought, the limit is reset though. 

When picking your items for OSRS Grand Exchange flipping, it’s wise to find ones that have a huge difference between the lowest and highest price. 

The more expensive the items, the higher are the price margins. They can vary from 1gp to a few million, so you need to pick wisely. 

A method some players use when they’re doing OSRS Grand Exchange flipping is undercutting. It can save you some time and help you make more gold per hour. The idea is to go slightly over/under the lowest/highest price. This way you will get your offer faster and save some time, so you will be able to make more gold. But you will be ruining the market for that item and if another flipper notices you’re undercutting them, they’ll start doing the same to you. This makes the item’s margins grow smaller. 

That’s why it’s often wiser to stock up on patience and wait for your offers as much as necessary. Usually, they all go through but if it takes an unusually long amount of time, adjust your prices by 1% at a time to see if this works.

The Grand Exchange is a trading system for players to purchase and sell tradeable items in Old School RuneScape. Flipping on the Grand Exchange is the easiest way to make money and trade with other people in OSRS. You can exchange almost every item in the game and you can buy it or sell it in Grand Exchange.

As traders you don’t need to go search or meet with other players to sell items in Grand Exchange. Because everything you trade can be found or collected in any bank or deposit box. Every player receives a message in their chatbox when the status of a trade offer is updated.

Where is the Grand Exchange located?

If you want to find the Grand Exchange you must search for it northwest of Varrock and east of Edgeville which are located just south of the Wilderness.

To get there you can:

Walk until you reach the Varrock Teleport spell.

Using the tunnel northwest of the Grand Exchange (requires 21 Agility).

Using a canoe station (requires 12-57 Woodcutting) to travel to the Champions’ Guild station, Barbarian Village station, or Edgeville station and walking north, walking east, or using the tunnel, respectively.

Using the spirit tree northeast of the Grand Exchange (requires completion of Tree Gnome Village). Using the Ardougne cloak teleport takes you somewhat close to the Khazard battlefield spirit tree which can take you directly to the GE.

Using a charge on an amulet of glory, or fairy ring code DKR (requires access to the fairy rings from partial completion of Fairytale II – Cure a Queen), to get to Edgeville and then using the tunnel.

Using the Varrock Teleport spell from the Standard spellbook, a Varrock teleport tablet, or a POH Varrock portal in a Portal Chamber (requires 25 Magic, and 50 Construction to build a portal)

If you have completed the Varrock medium diary, you can toggle these Varrock teleports to take you directly to the Grand Exchange.

Using a charge on a ring of wealth.

Using a skills necklace to teleport to the Cooks’ guild then running slightly north.

Taking the Cart from Keldagrim, you can use the Blast Furnace minigame teleport, which is near the carts.

Who can use Grand Exchange OSRS?

Every regular account can use it, but if you are an Ironman or Hardcore Ironman or an Ultimate Ironman you can not use Grand Exchange. There is one more restriction and that is for new players, you will have limited access to baying and selling on the Grand Exchange.

If you have a new account and you have 24 hours of game time or seven quest points. You will be limited in what you can do, so definitely make sure you have the requirements before you start flipping on Grand Exchange.

For free to play accounts you will only have access to three offer slots , on a paid account you will have access to eight slots. Each offer slot has a buy and sell option, if you click on buy items option it will pull up the search parameter, and you can search through every tradable item in the game.

How to sell an item ?

To sell an item you need to click on the right icon which is sell items, after that you can click on the item in your inventory and it will automatically put a sell offer. If you don’t want to automatically put a sell offer you can change it and put any price you want.

What is Flipping ?

Flipping is taking advantage of a discrepancy between the buy price of an item in the sell price of an item, this is called the margin. To start flipping you need to get a price difference between items. 

grand exchange osrs

The easiest way to do this is just quickly buy the item and quickly sell the item. On the right side you have “Price per item”  under it you have arrows icon, from then you can change plus 5% or more the price and from the dots icon next to it you can make whatever price you want. 

Then you click on confirm so it should turn yellow and then green.Congratulations you bought the item, click on the item and you will find that there are coins left in addition to the purchased item. The reason for this is that Grand Exchange works to make you the best deal possible.

This also works the other way around if you put a price of 1 GP you will never sell that item for that price, because there are people who will give a higher price, this is especially true for items that are high value or are in search by many players.

How much money do I need to start Flipping ?

To get started there is no specific amount to start with, some players advise you to start Flipping with as much money as you can because it is based on percentages. For those who want the correct answer for an example I will give from 5 mil to 10 million GP.

The best advice that can be given before you start is to stay away from ordinary recommended items and look for more unique and less familiar items on the market so that they can make a profit.

Who are the Non-tradable items ?

Some items cannot be traded in the Grand Exchange for example, burnt foods cannot be traded with the GE service, because they don’t have any in-game value. Other items include partially charged jewellery (games necklace) or equipment (black mask), half-eaten food items (slice of cake), recipe items (uncooked cake), currency (platinum tokens), and Castle Wars bandages. This type of item can be traded by using player to player trade.
