Money making guide

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A money making guide for Ironmen can be found here.

This is a list of some of the ways to make money in Old School RuneScape and the requirements to do so. The prices and hourly rates are simply estimates, and actual rates and profit are likely to differ. There are likely other ways that aren't included here; feel free to suggest them on the talk page.

If you notice a discrepancy between profits listed here and profits listed on guide pages, it is probably because of a caching issue. You can clear the cache and force an update by clicking here.

Caution: You should always research the items and methods before trying these methods. Because of constantly changing prices of items, the estimated profit may be inaccurate.

NOTE: Any method in the "Hourly Profit" section that relies on buying an item from the Grand Exchange is shown only for completeness, as most of those methods ignore the item's buy limit. Such methods include processing materials. Therefore, you shouldn't rely on methods that rely on certain purchase prices or have restrictive buy limits.

Note: All prices are calculated using current Grand Exchange market prices, meaning the actual profit per hour may vary greatly from what is stated here. If you notice a discrepancy between profits listed here and profits listed on guide pages, it is likely a caching issue. You can force this page to update by clicking here.

Hourly profit table[edit | edit source]

Note: Most money making methods rely on Grand Exchange item prices, which may fluctuate as players constantly sell for higher or lower than the listed price, and some items are less stable than others. For methods involving the processing of items, it is recommended to test each method with a small sample size before investing a lot of money, as the prices may not be fully accurate, possibly resulting in loss instead of profit.

Recurring methods[edit | edit source]

Effective hourly profit is the amount of money you would make in an hour if you could continuously use this method. It is best not to use activities that have an effective profit less than what you can normally make otherwise.

Note that you can only do one type of herb farming at once, one type of brewing at once, and one of either picking papayas or coconuts.

Starting off[edit | edit source]

Stronghold of Security[edit | edit source]

Strongholf of Security map
A map of the Stronghold of Security.

Players can visit the Stronghold of Security for some quick coins. Players can get 10,000 just for completing the first three levels. This can be done even at Combat level 3. Just pick some cabbages on the way there from the field north of Lumbridge (or cooked meat from the lodge just above the entrance to the stronghold) and eat between rooms. Also, if you level up your Cooking skill a little, you could get some raw trout or raw salmon from a popular world at Barbarian Village and cook them on the everlasting fire next to the fishing spot. Cooking trout and salmon requires level 15 and 25 Cooking respectively.

Imps[edit | edit source]

Imps have a chance to drop the beads used in the Imp Catcher quest. There are four different beads: yellow, red, black and white that are each worth 963, 751, 824 and 864 coins respectively. Three imps spawn near the south gate of Falador, as well as several around the Karamja Volcano. Members also have access to the spawns near the Ardougne Monastery and the southern coast of Kourend.

Dark wizards[edit | edit source]

Dark wizards, located south of Varrock, are level 7 and 20 wizards that can easily be killed by low levels, especially those using Ranged. They drop talismans and runes. Talismans can be sold to runecrafters for a decent sum of gold pieces. More specifically, fire talismans can be sold over the Grand Exchange for up to 5,927 each. This method only being useful for low level players, it is advised to wear Magic or Ranged equipment when fighting against them, as Magic can easily penetrate Melee armour. Also, targeting the level 7 wizards makes this method easier, as this is a single-way combat zone.

Players who are level 40 Combat or lower may find it easier to kill the two level 7 dark wizards in Draynor Village instead.

Skilling[edit | edit source]

Another way to start making some gold pieces is by levelling up a skill, such as Woodcutting, Fishing, or Mining. These three skills are commonly used by players to make money in Old School RuneScape as they provide resources that can be sold on the Grand Exchange.

Members have access to an additional money-maker in the Hunter skill as well as an array of other content like high-level Runecraft and Thieving. The latter is a very fast skill that unlocks many very effective money-making methods that require little-to-no startup costs or supplies, thus making it an ideal stat for Ironman accounts or players without a large bank.

Miscellaneous methods[edit | edit source]

Treasure Trails/Clue Scrolls[edit | edit source]

Clue scroll (master).png

Clue scrolls are a great money-maker but require a lot of luck and medium-level skills to start doing them. Patience is also needed as some clues will require days of skilling just to complete the clue.

If you are a lower Combat level player, easy clue scrolls will often be the best (due to various requirements not being present) you can possibly do. Mid-level players should aim for medium clues and so on. Clue scrolls on skillers is not recommended due to a lot of clues requiring random armours and weapons that you won't be able to wear.

Players may acquire low-value rewards from this method, but there's always the chance ranging from nothing, all the way up to tens of millions of gold, and for hard and elite clues, even more. If you have a string of poor rewards, remember you can still get a 10-million-gp item out of nowhere. Players constantly killing NPCs for clue scrolls may see profits of millions of gold per day, or just one-thousand air runes.

Merchanting[edit | edit source]

Main article: Merchanting

Grand Exchange flipping, or merchanting, is the high-risk, high-reward activity of buying items for a low price and selling them at a high price. You are looking for items that are unstable, but are frequently traded, with a changing price due to supply and demand.

Supply running[edit | edit source]

Rune running[edit | edit source]

Pure essence.png

One easy method to make large amounts of money is rune running. There are rich players willing to pay people to "run" rune or pure essence for them, either to the bank or to a nearby general store for unnoting.

There are many players and clans involved in rune-running services; many of them post advertisements on the RuneScape Forums. Generally, the "Runes and Ammo" section is where most players post for this method. Titles, such as "25:25", "18:25", "23:25" and so on, are what you should be looking for. These numbers are ratios of runes to rune essence (or pure essence).

Skeletal wyvern running[edit | edit source]

Due to the popularity of Skeletal Wyverns, runners are in constant demand. Runners relieve players camping the wyverns of their unstackable drops and charge a "tax" for their convenient service. Depending on efficiency, runners can make anywhere between 400,000 and 1,000,000 an hour.

General pricing[edit | edit source]

Although runners buy items significantly lower and sell higher than the GE Price, the general rule of thumb is to buy at half price and sell at double with the exception of broad bolts and dragon equipment. Such drops include the following as well as the neighbourhood runners' prices:

Buying
Selling

Note: Prices could vary, and these are only suggested, ball-park prices.

Joining a clan chat could help in getting more requests, but simply asking people at the Wyvern cavern will do. Be sure to tell them you're running and to add you.

Tip: Also, make sure to have your private chat set on so that players can contact you more easily.

Gear[edit | edit source]

WARNING: Skeletal Wyverns have a devastating icy attack if players have no type of elemental shielding.

Wyvern Guide
Getting to the wyverns.

Players who have partially completed Fairytale II - Cure a Queen can take full advantage of the fairy rings to commute to and from Mudskipper Point (code AIQ) in which the Wyvern dungeon is due a short distance north. Furthermore, the player could also use an Amulet of glory to teleport to Edgeville, bank, and run east to the fairy ring located between Edgeville and the Grand Exchange.

Alternatively, players who have their houses set in Rimmington could teleport there and run southwards to the dungeon. Depending on their chosen teleportation, they could bank in either Edgeville or Varrock West Bank.

Tip: As you'll be getting aggro, time the wyverns and let the players secure their wyverns first before rushing in and trading. Afterwards, stand behind the player or out of the wyvern's reach before trading.
