How to Make Money in RuneScape (for Non-Members)
Are you bankrupt or all tied up for money? Do you want a very easy way to make money in RuneScape? If so, you are reading the right article! If you're a non-member, then read this.
To make money with combat, you should attack the following creatures:
Chickens for low levels
Chickens are very easy and fast to kill. They are located north of Lumbridge, but there are many other places. Pick up their feathers, which can be sold 5-15 GP each!
Cows for low levels
Cows are slightly harder to kill than chickens, but give much more profit. They are found slightly northeast of Lumbridge, but there are many places to find them, as well. Pick up their hides and sell them for 100-150 GP each.
Hill Giants for amateurs
At around 45 combat, it should be easy to kill hill giants. First you need to purchase a brass key from the grand exchange to unlock the door east of the grand exchange. Kill them and pick up their big bones and sell them for 300-400 GP each!
Now that is how to make money with combat. Now I will tell you how to make money with fishing.
You should have at least 30 fishing. First go to Port Sarim docks with 60 GP and a harpoon (for tune and swordfish) or a lobster pot (for fishing lobsters). Take a boat ride to Karamja for 30 GP. The dock on the bottom-right of the island is where you will arrive. Go to the fishing spots around the smaller north dock. It shows fishing spot icons on that dock in the picture.
When you get a full inventory, then go back to where you arrived. Get a boat trip back to port Sarim for 30 GP. Bank the fish at the bank in Draynor which is east of port Sarim. Get another 60 GP and repeat the process.
Now, making money by mining can be really slow, but it can also be very profitable. All you do is mine ores and sell them. Iron ore is the fastest to gather and makes quite a lot of money. Each one sells for about 100 GP.
There are also players killing in the wilderness to get they're items, but it is extremely dangerous.
Runecrafting is very slow for making money. You have to finish rune mystery quests in order to runecraft. You need an air (or any other rune) talisman and you need some rune essence which can be mined by asking the head wizard in the wizards tower to teleport you to rune essence, or you can simply buy it. If you are buying it, you should calculate the profit just in case. I will give you the steps:
- Take your air talisman and rune essence to the air alter. The map of west Varrock shows where the air altar is.
- Use the air talisman on the air altar. It should teleport you somewhere.
- Use the rune essence on the rock in the middle of the stone hedge and you will get air runes. (The higher your runecrafting level is the more runes you can make).
- Sell them to receive the money you worked hard for.
Smithing is a very tedious way to make money, but with some effort, you can make millions. First mine some ores and melt them in a furnace. Then take your bars to an anvil with a hammer. Use the bar on the anvil and choose what you would like to smith.
Wood cutting is the most popular way to make money for non-members. Use the best hatchet you can use and afford. Chop down the highest level tree that you can chop down. Bank the logs and sell them when you have many. Once at 60 woodcutting, chop down yews. Each log is 500-600 GP each. Each inventory (28 logs) makes around 12K.
The picture above directs you to the best place to chop down yews. That is because you can sell them at the grand exchange very quickly.
Try the method that sounds easiest for you. I would recommend woodcutting, but it's not my choice what you do.
Thanks for reading. Hope this helps!!!
