This is a list of ways to make money in Old School RuneScape and the requirements to do them. Please remember that these are just a few suggestions, and the prices and hourly rates are mere estimates.
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.
Due to the constant changing of prices, some of the estimated values may be off. Do some research about the items first before you attempt to make money from them. This can be done even at Combat level 3. Just pick some cabbages on the way there from the field north of Lumbridge 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. Another way to start making some gold pieces is by leveling up a skill such as Woodcutting , Fishing , or Mining. These three skills Woodcutting, Fishing, and Mining are known as the 'Big Three', and they have been the three primary money-making skills commonly used by players to make money in RuneScape.
Members , on the other hand, have access to an additional money-maker in the Hunter skill as well as an array of other content like high-level Runecrafting 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. Do not kill Flesh Crawlers on a free-to-play server because you can only get body runes and iron ore from them.
To kill them, go to the second level of the Stronghold of Security , and then head south into the large room containing them. Mages and rangers can easily safespot them. They drop herbs , fire runes , noted iron ore, nature runes and dust runes. If you have decent Defence and armour , then you can slay enough to get around 10, fire runes as well as iron ore and nature runes each trip, worth over , coins. An Amulet of glory could be useful for banking in Edgeville.
Flax can be picked in the flax field south of Seers' Village by members. Players can obtain around 1, flax per hour resulting in 3, However, this is not recommended to do. Moreover, if players have 10 Crafting or higher, it can be spun into bow string , and approximately 1, bow string worth , can be made an hour using the spinning wheel in Lumbridge Castle. It is best to buy flax and spin it rather than picking it.
Also, if players have at least completed all the easy Kandarin tasks , they can exchange their flax for bowstrings at the flax keeper. This can be done once per day based on UTC time. Cowhides can be tanned at a tanner for a small fee and turned into soft leather for one coin or turned into hard leather for three coins each. Cowhide can be turned into either soft leather, which is approximately 64, per hour, or hard leather, which is around 68, per hour, assuming a player can collect and tan approximately hides in an hour.
Just go to the Lumbridge cow field , loot 27 cowhides, run to the Al Kharid tanner, Ellis , pay him gold, bank, and then repeat. It is recommended that players complete the Prince Ali Rescue quest beforehand to allow them free passage through the gates, though the difference in hourly profits is marginal.
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 1, each. Being this method only 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.
Head for the Al-Kharid mine , and find a world where there's one or more people powermining. Pick up the dropped ores and head for the bank. Once you've gotten an amount of ores you're satisfied with, head for the Grand Exchange to sell your ores. This method can earn you roughly 75k per hour. Killing chickens drops bones , raw chicken , and five feathers , which can all be sold on the Grand Exchange. Cooked chicken sometimes sells for more than raw chicken, so you may wish to check the prices and then cook them before selling them.
The total per chicken killed is around ; you can also take unlimited raw chickens from the crates in the food shop in Port Sarim and bank them in Draynor Village provided that you have begun the Pirate's Treasure quest and are wearing a white apron.
Ashes sell for a fair amount on the Grand Exchange. With the number of players attempting to level Firemaking and making fires near this area, ashes are present everywhere, and can be sold to easily make thousands of gold when just starting anew. High recommended to have increased running energy restoration. Decent and recommended 25 recommended for Protect Item.
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. 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 million-gp item out of no where. Players constantly killing NPCs for clue scrolls may see profits of millions of gold per day, or just one-thousand air runes. This will not get you banned. However, joining a merching clan and manipulating an item's price is bannable. 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. Cyclopes are found within the Warriors' Guild. The level cyclopes, in particular, require at least a Rune defender and some Warrior guild tokens to fight. They commonly drop valuable armour and items. They are aggressive , so wearing armour with high Defence bonuses are recommended as well as a few super potion sets and high healing food.
These are a great source of money while gaining decent Combat experience. Note that within the Warriors' Guild, you can only attack the cyclopes with Melee.

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 " These numbers are ratios of runes to rune essence or pure essence. World and are commonly used for running law runes. Depending on the crafter, they may require you to hold up to 26 pure essence in your inventory. Follow these steps below.

Running with charged amulets of glory to the Abyss at level 1 Runecrafting with no pouches , you can average around , an hour; however, with level 50 and three pouches, you can reach between , and 1,, an hour depending on Runecrafting host lines.
The nature altar is located north of Shilo Village. Make your way to Southern Karamja, or enter the nature altar through the Abyss for quick travel.
Once you've traded your essence for runes, run to the nearby general store, sell some of your noted essence and buy it back, and then repeat the process. Watch out for other players buying your essence as soon as you sell it! The only way to avoid them is to find a nature running group on a different world.
A way to avoid players buying your essence from the general store is to speak with Aisles , who will un-note anything for five coins a piece. 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 items.
Such drops include the following as well as the neighborhood runners' 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. Also, make sure to have your private chat set on so that players can contact you more easily. Skeletal Wyverns have a devastating icy attack if players have no type of elemental shielding.
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 A I Q 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. 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.
