HAM follower thieving[edit source]

The HAM follower thieving method for making money no longer works. They have updated the game so you cannot sell clue scrolls  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2601:283:401:B990:19FC:E6CB:FC69:10D9 (talk) on 06:04, 12 November 2020 (UTC).

That money making guide shows you the expected value of the clue scrolls collected. This is explained in the text of the guide itself. Clue scrolls have never been tradeable in Oldschool. Andmcadams (talk) 06:15, 12 November 2020 (UTC)

No longer profitable[edit source]

Making harralander potions:

Harralander costs 898 at the moment and the unfinised potion is only worth 837 (at the time of writing this, 2:22pm pacific time), it is actually a loss to make these now  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 194.229.246.190 (talk) on 22:22, 21 November 2020 (UTC).

Many money making guides are no longer profitable, but may become profitable in the future. This is why the articles are still kept Luna Lana probaly mispelt this 00:06, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

Wrong skill requirements[edit source]

Skill requirements seem to be nonsense in "Humidifying clay" money making  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 85.206.186.103 (talk) on 19:59, 24 November 2020 (UTC).

They are required for the quests necessary to cast the spell MxFox (talk) 15:39, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Brutal Black Dragons Rune Bolts vs Diamond Bolts (e)[edit source]

When using the Dragon hunter crossbow going from diamond bolts (e) to rune bolts give you 7% more DPS while the diamond bolt (e) spec only gives about 5% to 6.67% more DPS(depending on if you are using armadyl/god d hide or void) and costs more. Either way, based on my calculations, rune bolts are better if using the dragon hunter crossbow. Diamond bolts (e) seem to only be good with every other crossbow because you lose the accuracy bonus of the dragon hunter crossbow. Please check if i'm correct. This is assuming the diamond bolt spec is giving 15% more damage and a guaranteed hit 10% of the time which i'm unsure about because the wording on the wiki page is confusing.

Skeletal wyverns need a revamp. The strategy page is great.[edit source]

You can reach 35+ kills per hour with 80+ range, d hide/void, dragon cbow (not hunter), fury, and rune bolts.

You can reach 40+ kills per hour with 80+ melee, obsidian armor, and whip

You can reach 65+ kills per hour with 90+ range, armadyl/elite void, dragon hunter crossbow, anguish, and rune bolts.

You can reach 65+ kills per hour with 90+ melee, bandos, and dragon hunter lance.

Add 5+ kills per hour if using eagle eye/ultimate strength/incredible reflexes which can easily be done 33%+ of the time because you get constant prayer potion drops.

Add 10+ kills per hour if using rigour/piety which can easily be done 33%+ of the time because you get constant prayer potion drops.

Subtract ~7 kill per hour if using the safespots because you will have to wait 5 seconds between kills for the wyvern you are camping to respawn.

95+ kills per hour if maxed out non safespotting.

80+ kills per hour if maxed out safespotting. (limited prayer and 5 second respawn timer)

For range void is always better but god d hide/armadyl is not far behind.

Rune bolts increase your kills per hour enough so that they are worth the extra cost over broad bolts.

With the additional kills you get you are better off using the prayer potion drops for offensive prayers rather than keeping them to sell.

Revenant Caves Has Changed[edit source]

This Article Is No Longer Valid Because They Moved The Revenants Around The Cave. Also Changed The PvP Mechanics In The Cave.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2600:1700:a341:fce0:807d:e79:7d34:dc59 (talk) on 04:17, 28 November 2020 (UTC).

Smelting steel bars at Blast Furnace[edit source]

I think the 5400 bars per hour rate is tick perfect without any lag and not achievable by regular players. Even nearly tick perfect I can't reach above 4600 and that's while seriously straining myself for a short period. On a longer run I average around 3600 bars per hour, without mistakes. I think the default rate should be lowered to give a more honest projection of expected profit, especially because of the high amount of time players have to invest in getting the coal bag.

Atoxhybrid (talk) 16:51, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Here is a video proving 5400 bars per hour is doable by a wiki admin. Choppetalk 17:07, 1 December 2020 (UTC)
To add on to this, the above video is a little outdated (it needs to be redone). The recent coal bag update freed up an additional 2 ticks per lap, which pushes the effective rate closer to ~5800-5900 bars/hr. -Towelcat (talk) 21:13, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Auto-Casting "Plank Make" on Mahogany Logs[edit source]

Category- Skilling
Intensity- Low (High if Manual)

Requirements -

  • Level 86 Magic
  • Completion of Dream Mentor
  • Earth Staff (any)

Recommended - Rune Pouch
Equip an earth staff. Then withdraw coins, a rune pouch (astral and nature runes), and an inventory of Mohaogany Logs. Cast "Plank Make" on the Logs. Deposit planks. Repeat.
GP Rates: Creates a profit of 317 (Plank Make) coins every 5 ticks (3 seconds) while using auto-cast. Maximum of ~380k per hour, probably around 370k with banking.
Exp rates: 90k-98k for magic.
Notes -

  • You could do it manually and make ~40% increased profit and exp. I don't do this, so I'm submitting it under "auto-casting"
  • GP- ~148k more per hour(518K)
  • XP-~60k per hour (166k)

Liosrakia (talk) 14:58, 8 December 2020 (UTC)

I have added it Money making guide/Casting plank make, rates are different do to different ticks. Auto is instant-5-6 for the remainder. Lawliet has a video that I checked to verify [1] Choppetalk 17:10, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
Awesome! Glad to see this added. Sorry if the details were a bit rough, seems like you rounded it and filled it all in quite substantially. Very cool. :) Liosrakia (talk) 10:50, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

Too many yew logs on the vyrewatch sentinel price check.[edit source]

The price check for vyrewatch sentinels shows 90 yew logs per 90 kills, but the drop rate is 1/46.5 for 6 logs -> ~11.6 in 90 kills. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Royalialty (talk) on 04:32, 16 December 2020 (UTC).

thanks, it has been fixed - a wrong parameter name was the issue Choppetalk 04:46, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

High Alch[edit source]

Do not alch your ring with 1 charge left. It will result in your next stored rings being left with 1 charge.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 70.178.76.133 (talk) on 03:41, 17 December 2020 (UTC).

Which page? -Towelcat (talk) 03:49, 17 December 2020 (UTC)

Update prices[edit source]

Green d'hide and dragon bones prices have changed, the page requires an update for real calculations.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 190.207.131.140 (talk) on 20:23, 28 December 2020 (UTC).

Which page? The prices on the wiki are updated roughly once a day using the Grand Exchange API. -Towelcat (talk) 20:31, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

what level is this assuming?[edit source]

You get more/less herbs depending on your level so does anyone know what level you would need to be to get the assumed herbs per patch to meet this profit? Cat Level-6 (talk) 14:11, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Update link to Ironman money making guide[edit source]

At the top of the page, the link to the ironman moneymaking guide takes you to a sub section of the ironman guide. There exists a separate, more in depth guide which may be more appropriate to link to: https://oldschool.runescape.wiki/w/Ironman_Moneymaking_Guide Tomwoc (talk) 03:35, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Making Cadantine Blood Potions (Unf)[edit source]

Similar to any other herb processing, making Cadantine Blood Potions (Unf) has a margin (according to GE/wiki) of ~800gp/ea. Using estimate of other herb processing pages, 3,400 unfinished potions/hr would be ~2.7m GP/hr. Wiki shows 111k daily volume. Notable Product: Bastion(4) daily volume 168k. Materials: Cadantine daily volume 300k and Vial of Blood daily volume 300k.

I tried looking through the archive for this but I’m on mobile so difficult to search. I don’t want to sell mine because I’m training herblore, but someone else can try it out.

Cast High level alchemy on steel items[edit source]

 Requieres 55 Magic Level , cast High level alchemy on steel items is profitble around 205-333 (Less current nature rune and fire rune cost) coins , only is profitable when cast on Steel Platebodies , Platelegs And plateskirts , Aproximately 5-133 coins.

Item HA Val. GE Val. Profit

Steel platebody 1200 877 133 steel platelegs 600 395 5 steel plateskirt 600 344 56

 Other alternative are rune arrows wich High level alchemy cost is 240 coins and GE cost is 39 coins. But as well known the cost of the nature rune has variated the last year and recently is not so profitable. The next line was written with data of 24 th february , 2021.
 
 Nature rune current cost 200 coins               now in't profitable
 some time before costs 139 coins                 in the past was profitable
 Hope the price of nature rune get down for alching with rune arrows back!.
 
 Written by haspirine477 186.167.250.244 08:45, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
Since 2015, nature runes have not go below 178 coins so it is highly unlikely that they will ever be profitable from purely buying things from the GE. High alchemy is an interesting MMG ideaChoppetalk 14:28, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Dont trust ALL TIMES in the guide!!![edit source]

I Have noticed something dont trust all times in the guide remember, that not all times things are sold in GE at its same price , it depends in the demand and ofert of items, trust me that guide of pies sounds very easy to gain gold but i went my time in 500 pies for 75000 coins, i have lost 28000 coins, dont make the same mistake so i did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At the bottom of each Money Making Guide, you will find the following:
Due to constantly changing prices on the Grand Exchange, some information in this article may or may not be current.
It is strongly recommended to check the live prices on the Grand Exchange before making large investments in any method.
You are also able to check the volume traded on the individual pages for the items. If the volume is low, then you either need to wait a longer period of time or you can choose a different method. Not all guides are consistently profitable, nor is there any guarantee that things can or will be sold. These exist because they are theoretically possible and tracking street price is unrealiable due to its nature of being much more easily manipulatable. Also, not all products of MMGs will be sold/traded instantly, if you have not waited a few days for the price you are looking for, then it is highly recommended to do so.Choppetalk 14:28, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Mining clay and watering[edit source]

Needs as least 41 mining and a rune pickaxe for a fastest mining rate, also, 14 buckets, the best area for this making money is in rimmington, where you can mine clay, fill your buckets in a nearby fountain, wet the clay and store it in the deposit box of port sarim, the player gains around 2,400 coins per lap and members is suggestable for make teleport tablets at POH.

Money Making Misteries[edit source]

Why should Old School RuneScape Set up a page of money making with the cost of loots that in grand exchange aren't bougth? per example pies, pies ere rarely sold/bougth but i think must be updated the REAL price in which pies are traded, because is so disliked you thoug you are gaining some gold for your account and when you are going to sell you have 30-40% the gold of what you was hopping o have. See it by yourselves in the money making guide.186.167.242.115

Cleaning herbs is AFK, meaning that the "intensity" should be lowered to low[edit source]

This would put it in line with the other AFK skilling intensities, which are also classified as low.

Grabbing bronze picks[edit source]

It should be profitable to pick picks from the Barrel (Ruins of Camdozaal) and store them in the bank chest that's really really close. Page said I have to do this before I make a page about a new method. Lemme run some checks now MeneerPjoeterBliep (talk) 14:35, 20 April 2021 (UTC) I tried it for five minutes and averaged about 1876 picks per hour. Making an article about this method would thus either be about 120,064 per hour, or it would completely ruin the bronze pick market. Should I make a little article about this stupid tactic?MeneerPjoeterBliep (talk) 16:02, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

Casting Plank Make missing?[edit source]

Was trying to pull up stats for plank make (which I originally had added, edited for quality control by awesome wiki staff) -- I can find the page, but it's not on the table? Liosrakia (talk) 17:24, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Hi! Sorry about that. The reason was because the profit was under 150k/hour per the code that we have in Module:Mmgtable. I have adjusted it to now show guides that produce at least 100k/hour for members which this one does. Should now be back on the main MMG page. :) --Legaia2Pla · ʟ · 17:34, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Profit with no ranger boots[edit source]

The profit (losses) for not getting the ranger boots does not include the value of the empty jars, which would benefit the player, and potentially make this a money maker as long as you do the clues at all. I do not know how to fix it in the wiki 68.62.57.91 22:57, 27 April 2021 (UTC)yodude3234

Outdated Adamantite Ore Mining[edit source]

Mining addy ore is currently under the 100k threshold. However, I still took at look at it and it's really, really outdated. I put my suggestions for updating it on the page, though I haven't had time to do any rate testing. Even if the rates aren't tested right away, I think at the very least we could take the Hobgoblin mine off the table and replace it with the mining guild. There are so many more advantages to mining guild. At the bare minimum, the core of the guide should be written for the mining guild (money making methods should show optimized methods) and Hobgoblin mine should be moved down. :)) Liosrakia (talk) 22:16, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

Money maker :exchanging mole parts[edit source]

I feel as if this needs an update to the money making guide and revision to see if it is infact still making money also i think it would be better to do a guide with a smaller amout of gp invested (5-10m) and then show the money made (if this method is still making money.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 177.25.223.238 (talk) on 11:08, 9 May 2021 (UTC).

Requires a update[edit source]

Steel bars usually sell between 300-350 average per bar https://prices.runescape.wiki/osrs/item/2353 Cannon balls sell 130-150 per cannon ball https://prices.runescape.wiki/osrs/item/2
