This provides players with a list of ways to make money in RuneScape, along with the requirements, estimated profit per hour, and a guide explaining each method in detail. The list is separated into hourly methods, which can be done more or less continuously, and recurring methods, which can be done once every set amount of time.

If you have a correction for a guide or have a suggestion for a new method, please leave a message on the talk page.

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 (note that it will take a few seconds to load).

Recurring methods

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. Also note you may only create one divine location per day and that there is a limit on how many resources may be gathered per day.
