The OSRS Alchemy Calculator helps players determine the profits from alchemy spells in Old School RuneScape. Alchemy spells are used to convert items into gold by using the standard or high alchemy method. This calculator provides an easy way to estimate the potential gains from using these spells.

## Understanding Alchemy in OSRS

Alchemy spells in OSRS are divided into two categories: Standard Alchemy and High Alchemy. Standard Alchemy converts items into a reduced amount of gold, while High Alchemy converts items into a higher amount of gold. Both methods involve calculating the profit based on the cost of the item and the value received from alchemy.

## Standard Alchemy Calculation

Standard Alchemy is a more basic alchemy spell that is cheaper to cast but yields less profit compared to High Alchemy. The profit is calculated using the formula:

Standard Alchemy Profit = Item Cost * 0.8

Where the item cost is the amount you spend to obtain the item before alchemy.

## High Alchemy Calculation

High Alchemy is a more advanced spell that offers greater profits. It costs more to cast but provides a higher return. The profit calculation for High Alchemy is given by:

High Alchemy Profit = Item Cost * 1.2

This formula reflects the increased profitability compared to Standard Alchemy.

## Why Use an Alchemy Calculator?

Using an alchemy calculator helps players make informed decisions about which items to alchemize and when to use their alchemy spells. By inputting the cost of items and comparing the results, players can optimize their profits and make the most of their alchemy resources.
