  • The five most expensive items available in OSRS and how much they cost
  • How can you obtain them without paying for them
  • What are the drop rates/rarity of each item

The growing world of OSRS has a massive trading aspect to it, and for many it is one of the main draws to the game. This raises the questions as to what are the OSRS most expensive items that are available to you, how much are they worth and whether or not you can obtain them without having to spend your hard-earned gold. Some items also have certain drop rates that you will have to adhere to if you want to get them without paying, and some items require combining two items to gain another. The good news is that each item that is found on the list can be gained without having to pay for them. With that in mind, here are the five most expensive items in OSRS, and how you can get a hold of them to add to your inventory.

What are the Most Expensive Items being sold on the Grand Exchange?

There are many, many items available for you to purchase and trade in the game’s Grand Exchange. For those who may be unfamiliar, the Grand Exchange is a trading system in which players are able to buy, sell and trade items they find in the game. Often abbreviated to GE, the Grand Exchange offers eight trading slots to members, and three trading slots to those playing the free version.

The top 5 OSRS most expensive items are as follows:

  • Twisted Bow – 1.07B gp
  • Elysian Spirit Shield – 847.39M gp
  • Elysian Sigil – 835.26M gp
  • Scythe of Vitur – 740.83M gp
  • 3rd Age Bow – 541.88M gp

How can you obtain the Most Expensive Items in OSRS without buying them?

If you are looking for ways in which you can obtain the OSRS most expensive items, then there are methods in which you don’t have to spend the millions of gold in order to do so. Starting with the 3rd Age Bow, this is an item that can be possibly obtained for free without having to spend over 500M gp to get it. If you are lucky, it is a possible reward from elite and master Treasure Trails. It is worth getting your hands on too, as it boasts the same attack speed as shortbows but also has longbow range to go with it. It does require level 65 Ranged to wield it, which is worth keeping in mind.

Moving on to the next most expensive item on the list, the Scythe of Vitur can also be obtained without having to fork over a whole bunch of gold. You can get the coveted Scythe in the Theatre of Blood, which is a large arena found under the castle of Ver Sinhaza. The weapon itself makes the list as a two-handed slash weapon, which you will need level 75 Strength and Attack to wield.

Up next is the Elysian Sigil, which similarly to the Spirit Shield, flirts with the 1B gp mark in terms of how much it will cost. These two items kind of go hand in hand, as one is a key component of the other. What is certain is that it is going to set you back a lot of gold if you want to purchase it. If this isn’t an option, then there is a way to pick up a drop from the Corporal Beast. There isn’t much chance of this however, as there is roughly a 1 in 4000 chance of you gaining the sigil via this drop.

As previously mentioned, the Elysian Spirit Shield is even closer to the 1B gp mark, and is considered one of the strongest shields in the entire game. This explains as to why it is so expensive, and the shield’s stats play an even bigger part as to why it costs so much. What gives it its power is the fact that it has not only a better Melee and Ranged stat than Spectra and Arcane shields, but it also has a passive ability that has a high chance of reducing standard damage.

To avoid paying for the shield, you will need to obtain the Elysian Sigil to make it. You can then attach it to a Blessed Spirit Shield to create the Elysian Spirit Shield. To wield the shield, you will need to have 90 Prayer and 85 Smithing. Alternatively, Abbot Langley can make the shield for 1,500,000 gp.

Finally, there is the Twisted Bow, which is the most expensive item in the game. Understandably, it is the strongest bow that you can possibly get in OSRS, hence its high price. What makes the bow so powerful is that it doesn’t work like normal bows, in that rather than having a set damage output, it scales to the enemy that you are using it against. So the stronger the enemy that you are facing, the more damage that it can dish out. This goes up to 89 damage using Dragon arrows, plus you’ll need level 99 Ranged skill to deal that kind of damage.

You can avoid paying the eye-watering price for the Twisted Bow by completing the Chambers of Xeric, though there is only a 2.38% chance of it being dropped. This of course is such a low percentage, which unfortunately comes with the territory of such a rare item. As you will have seen by now though, it is a bow that will definitely be worth your time adding to your arsenal, especially when it comes to taking on enemies with a high magic level such as Commander Zilyana.


The items on this list are the most expensive that you will find within OSRS, and can be quite difficult to obtain without the right know how. However, you should now have the knowledge of how you can add each of the five items to your inventory without having to pay the obscene amounts of gold that you are required to pay to get them. Rare drops and items are the order of the day, but they aren’t impossible to find without paying valuable gp.
