The profit rate assumes 90 kills per hour. Your actual profits may be higher or lower depending on your speed and luck.

Killing gargoyles could bring in a steady income while AFK'ing when wearing the full set of Guthan's armour. Gargoyles have a chance to drop granite mauls and dark mystic tops, which could both be alched due to their low selling prices, but always check the Grand Exchange to decide whether to sell there or alch.

Depending on luck, methods and stats, expect anywhere from 200,000 and 600,000. If using the shortcut by the crawling hands, which requires 61 Agility, make sure you wear a Slayer helm or nose peg so that the aggressive aberrant spectres don't drain your stats as you pass by. A good method if not on task is to wear the nosepeg, as it is cheap and you can drop it once you get to the gargoyles to make room for more drops. You can switch to your regular gear once you reach the gargoyles.

Although 70 Attack and Strength will suffice at the expense of slower kills, it is strongly recommended to possess at least 85 Defence if you wish to sustain if using the AFK Guthan's method. Also, bear in mind that gargoyles are weak to crush, but if you only want Defence experience, you have to use the block style, which is stab with Guthan's warspear. The Dragon battleaxe special can be used to boost up Strength.
