This guide is for members who wish to profit from combat. As a general rule, pick the strategy which requires the least consumables (food and potions). Remember that consumables cost money and time, and have to be accounted for when using combat to profit. Part of profiting through combat involves the speed at which players can kill the monsters.

The following list details monsters that do not require a Slayer level to fight or kill. For making money with Slayer, see the Slayer money making guide.


|Difficulty |1-2 20+ combat recommended or lots of food |Kill wolves on white wolf mountain, and collect wolf bones, for those with lower combat kill adolescent white wolves, and those with higher combat kill wolves and white wolves, they have a reasonable charm drop rate aswell. Wolf bones sell for around 1k each and the wolves have low HP levels.

Kill chaos druids in the Edgeville Dungeon. Chaos druids produce good money for almost all levels. Druids can drop rare herbs, along with many mid-level herbs, and are close to a bank. Level 10 Dungeoneering is required to enter the dungeons. However there are several Chaos druid spawns east of the dungeon entrance, be cautious as this is in the wilderness. If you die you will lose all of your items. Using a Macaw pouch (Level 41 Summoning) improves the herb drops so that it is possible to get 4 inventory loads of ranarr or better herbs in an hour from the druids and the spawns.

53 Magic Kill cockroach soldiers in the Stronghold of Player Safety North of Gunnarsgrunn. Make the carapace into carapace torsos(worth Coins 1000 2,153 each) to save inventory space. You can also create a set of carapace legs(worth Coins 1000 1,485 each) at the end. A set of 14 carapace legs and 14 carapace torsos would yield Coins 1000 50,932 coins. Wield the earth blast spell with a mystic lava staff and use an Amulet of Glory to return to the bank. One should also use the Momentum ability. After Hero's Quest, one will no longer lose money by using Amulet of Glory teleports because one will be able to recharge the amulet in the Heroes' Guild.

140+ Combat The chaos dwarves found in the Taverley Dungeon can be killed for muddy keys(worth Coins 1000 3,852 each), mithril bars(worth Coins 1000 1,954 each), and bones.

For further reference,

Bones x 28 = Coins 1000 4,900

Mithril bars x 28 = Coins 1000 54,712

Muddy keys x 28 = Coins 1000 107,856

Usually uncrowded in most worlds, this spot provides good experience, although food will be required.

Players should be wary, as they are quite accurate even with high defence. Note that they can hit up to 66 hitpoints, and are located quite close to lesser demons.

Coins 1000 400,000 coins per hour400000

80+ Kill snails Found south of Canifis for their thin snails which are worth a very decent Coins 1000 1,322. Excellent Money making for lower levels. There is a Bank in Canifis. Kill the level 9-15 snails and beware of Ghasts. Bring your silver sickles and your druid pouch.

When you are out of stacks in your druid pouch, there is an altar to the west of Canifis, near the bridge; the God Statue a short way to the south-east of the Canifis Lodestone serves the same purpose. With your prayer you will be able to use bloom to stack up your pouch. Otherwise the ghasts will hit you or spoil your food.

Coins 1000 200,000 coins per hour200000

50+ Combat Killing flesh crawlers for herbs such as ranarr, dwarf weed, lantadyme, avantoe, kwuarm, and runes. Less desirable herbs like guam and tarromin should be left on the ground as they cut into profit. As well, players are advised to bring a Ring of Wealth, as Flesh Crawlers are on the list of Rare Drop Table monsters and can thus provide a load of money, provided the player gets lucky.

Coins 1000 380,000 coins per hour375000

Requires Cabin Fever quest completed The snakes located on Mos Le'Harmless have a 100% chance of dropping snake hide which is worth Coins 1000 3,705 coins each. Antipoison is highly recommended.

Killing Tortoises north of the Tree Gnome Stronghold's Spirit Tree in Trainer Nacklepen's Tortoise Training Ground. Tortoises can drop up to three tortoise shells, which sell for Coins 1000 17,154 coins each. They also drop some valuable grimy herbs(E.g.:Grimy ranarr. The level 76 tortoises have a max hit of 100, while the level 92 tortoise has a max hit of 120. All are inaccurate. It is also important to note that they are located directly north of a swamp which spawns swamp toads. These toads heal quite a bit, so bringing food is not necessary.

80+ combat Killing green dragons is a very common and effective way to make money. These dragons always drop green dragonhides and dragon bones, which sell for Coins 1000 1,996 coins and Coins 1000 2,789 coins each respectively. This makes each green dragon worth at least Coins 1000 4,785 coins.

Green dragons are found mainly in the Wilderness, so beware of player killers when hunting them. A few can also be found in the Chaos Tunnels, although this area contains some monsters that are aggressive, so proceed with caution. With a familiar and a quick banking method, you can easily make a decent amount of money in an hour. Potions and prayers/curses can be used to speed up kills. See Green dragon/Strategies for more information.

Rewards from the Barrows activity include valuable runes, bolt racks and Barrows equipment. Pieces of Barrows equipment can sell for anywhere between Coins 1000 81,530 coins to Coins 1000 381,449 coins a piece. The Nature Spirit quest is helpful, as it grants access to a shortcut to Barrows. Completion of In Aid of the Myreque is helpful as it opens a bank in Burgh de Rott, which shortens time between trips. Also, The Branches of Darkmeyer will give an item that will allow quick teleport to the Barrows, as well as banks in Burgh de Rott and Darkmeyer. Completing the Hard task set of Morytania doubles the amount of runes received, allowing near-maxed players to pull over one million coins per hour before factoring any barrows items received.

Coins 1000 1,000,000 coins per hour1000000

100+ combat Blue dragons can be killed in much the same manner as green dragons. They always drop blue dragonhide (worth Coins 1000 2,675 coins) and dragon bones (worth Coins 1000 2,789 coins). Ranged and melee are the most efficient ways to kill them quickly.

The Ogre Enclave (requires Watchtower quest) and Taverley Dungeon (70+ Agility recommended for shortcut) are two of the most popular places to kill blue dragons.

In Taverley dungeon with Drygores, a spirit terrorbird, 70 agility and chipped Taverley house teleports, it is possible to yield in excess of 2300000 coins per hour (assuming 4.5 minute trips) at current bone/hide prices as of 07/09/2013.

Coins 1000 150,000 coins per hour150000

Killing Ankous are one of the most popular ways for collecting what they drop a lot. They drop blood runes (worth Coins 250 441 coins each) and death runes (worth Coins 100 222 coins each) more frequently than any other monster in-game, and are extremely weak for their level. They drop a large variety of noted items, and also can drop items from the rare drop table. However, they drop coins for the majority of the time.

Coins 1000 650,000 coins per hour650000

Killing Black Unicorn in the level 18 wilderness is a good way of collecting unicorn horns as there are 15-16 of them.Unicorn horns are currently selling for Coins 1000 2,906 each.Players are advised to bring items only which they are willing to lose since they are located in the wilderness.

Coins 1000 300,000 coins per hour300000

125+ Killing Fire Giant in the Chaos Tunnels Are fairly easy to kill, with a Ring of wealth you can easily get rune equipment, charms, and access to the rare loot table. A stack of 12 Rune arrow drops frequently along with Fire rune, Nature rune, and Law rune. All tier of gems drop quite often, and 15gp-12k drop. Another common drop is the Fire battlestaff. All of this combined will net you a decent profit, along with some nice combat experience, and some great slayer experience if you're tasked here.

Coins 1000 500,000 coins per hour500000

At a combat level of 160 and higher, soloing the Giant Mole should be fairly easy. Go to a non-Lootshare world and kill it alone. It is easy to make a few hundred thousand coins in 3-4 kills, and the Mole is a good source of Blue Charms as well, dropping 2 per kill with a rate of around 2 blue charms every 10 kills. You can either sell the hides and claws dropped by the Giant Mole or trade them in for nests that yield seeds, and can then be crushed with a pestle and mortar and sold. At a combat level of 190 or higher with extreme potions, turmoil, and a combat/BoB familiar or a very high ranged level, a cannon, and a combat/BoB familiar you'll be earning at least 500k an hour (possibly more if seeds from nests and other notable drops are taken into account). If you're looking for a cheaper way and aren't as high of a combat level, just buy some monkfish and some energy potions, and go down there and use one every time a stat starts to get low.Kills are very long so prepare to spend a while here.Please view the Giant Mole page for strategies.

Coins 1000 400,000 coins per hour400000

Kill Waterfiends in the Ancient cavern. They often drop noted water orbs, water battlestaves, and rune helms. While they don't have exceptionally valuable drops, most drops are stackable and add up to a large value quickly. Armour with high magic defence and prayer potions strongly advised.

Coins 1000 500,000 coins per hour500000

Ranged 60+, Recommended 80+ Killing mature grotworms in the Grotworm Lair is another way to make money. However, their drops are very random. Some people report making 400k an hour, while others report 600k+ an hour, although the drops have been significantly worsened to a point where it is difficult to make 500k+ an hour. Their valuable drops, such as runite ore are, however, a steady source of income. They sell for high prices on the G.E or street price (more than their G.E price.) Depending on your combat stats, equipment, and the luck of drops, players can accumulate coins quickly and efficiently at a reasonable rate. Their combat level is 120, and a level of 100+ with some prayer, melee (recommended using ranged, especially bolts), and food can easily make a decent amount of coins. Always wear a Ring of Wealth here, as they have access to the rare drop table. They are weak to ranged, bolts in specific, so bring good ranged equipment. You should at least have level 60 ranged, however it is recommended to have level 80. Your main drops are Rune items, runite ore, and Blood runes, making this a respectable way to make gold. The downside to this method is the extensive botting in the dungeon.

Don't forget to bring nature runes and a staff with an unlimited supply of fire runes or fire runes to high alch the rune equipment as this reduces the need to bank. At higher levels, with turmoil and extremes, it's possible to make over 800k per hour. Note: The 8/7/2012 update stopped the drop of certain higher value rune items like the rune chainbody. The 6/17/2013 update improved the overall power of the grotworm immensely, decreasing the money made per hour.

Summer's End quest Killing the Tormented wraith may be a good way of profit. It can drop the Spirit shield and Holy elixir (albeit a rarer rate than the Corporeal Beast), and is quite easy to kill. It also drops noted iron ore and oak planks, which can be sold to other players at a decent price. It also drops Black equipment, which is quite rare to find outside apart from specific monsters (Black demons, Giant rock crabs). With high combat stats and the best BoB you can bring, profit per hour can increase by 200000 coins. Remember you must bring Jennica's Ring and complete Summer's End.

Coins 1000 500,000 coins per hour500000

In Aid of the Myreque quest, or (optional) Darkness of Hallowvale quest Going on the Burgh de Rott and Temple Trekking minigames can be very profitable. As red tickets provide very high level herbs (from Grimy candantines to Grimy torstols), which, if a player is lucky in one of the trips, may provide over 400k. Players may also make profit by killing the Nail beasts, which provide an ingredient for a Sanfew serum, Fiyr shades for their remains, which are currently worth 3,905. Snails may also provide Crafting XP and coins if their shells are taken to Barlak.

Coins 1000 800,000 coins per hour800000

Troll Stronghold, 60 Strength/Agility Killing Aviansies can provide a decent amount of coins. Their commonly noted drop of four adamant bars provides 3,112 (x4). They also drop a decent amount of alchable equipment, such as Runite limbs, and Rune daggers. To improve profits, a high ranged level is recommended.

Coins 1000 600,000 coins per hour600000

Killing Revenants in the Forinthry Dungeon is another good, reliable way to make money. Their valuable drops, such as the Vesta's longsword, Ancient statuette, and Statius's warhammer are worth millions of coins. They sell for extremely high prices on the G.E or street price (more than their G.E price.) Depending on your combat stats, equipment and the luck of drops, players can accumulate millions of coins quickly and efficiently at a reasonable rate. Be wary of PKers, however, who frequently visit the area. For more information on this approach see the Pay-to-play Revenant hunting guide.

Coins 1000 250,000 coins per hour250000

Recommended 150+ Combat level and 70+ Agility, so you can use shortcut in Taverley dungeon Kill Black dragons in Taverley dungeon. They drop always Black dragon hide and Dragon bones. One kill is worth about 8k.

Take 2 Antifire(4) with you, and some Prayer potions for Protect from Magic, and take some food, for example Sharks. Beast of burden like Pack Yak, or Spirit Terrorbird helps you to get maximized loot. It is recommended to kill dragons as long as you have enough food. You can bury the bones, which are much cheaper than dragon hides, so your inventory can be filled with more dragon hides. Although Black dragons' weakness is arrows, you will need much more Ranged level than Melee skills. Don't take Anti-dragon shield but take Antifires + Protect from Magic prayer, so you can use much higher damaging weapons like godswords.

Coins 1000 600,000 coins per hour600000

A combat level of 150 or higher. Access to the fairy rings is strongly recommended. Brutal Green Dragons always drop 2 Green d'hide and 1 Dragon Bone, making them worth around 7k per kill. Using turmoil, a war tortoise, dual chaotics, super antifire, 99 attack and 99 strength, 1m/hr is achievable. The 1m/hr is no longer possible due to over competition.

Coins 1000 500,000 coins per hour500000

While Guthix Sleeps quest Killing Tormented Demons is very profitable. They drop Dragon claws and Off-hand dragon claws (both claws are part of the same drop) which are worth Coins 1000 244,847 and Coins 1000 121,174 coins each, respectively, and also drop Ruined dragon armour slices, lumps and shards, all worth at least Coins 1000 575,488 coins each. They also have a chance of dropping Dragon limbs, worth Coins 1000 11,089,199 coins.

Coins 1000 75,000 coins per hour75000

Priest in Peril quest, 80+ Combat Level, 15 Slayer Level It is fairly profitable to kill Banshees for their drops. Banshees can be found in the Slayer Tower just northwest of Canifis. They should be in the room just to the right of you as soon as you walk in to the Slayer Tower. Their best drops consist of herbs. Collecting all of the dropped herbs will provide at least Coins 1000 62,000 per hour, and Coins 1000 89,000 at most.

Remember to bring food for safety.

Coins 1000 200,000 coins per hour200000

started Zogre Flesh Eaters quest, 100+ Combat level A great source of money can be made from Zogres and ogre coffins. Zogres and Skogres can be found in Jiggig, east of Gu'Tanoth. In order to access the interior of Jiggig, you must have at least started Zogre Flesh Eaters. Zogres and Skogres both always drop Ogre coffin keys which the player should keep, if they want to make good profit. The player should take keys down into the dungeon under Jiggig. The entrance to the dungeon is found in the eastern part of Jiggig. Once the player enters the dungeon, they move northwest until they find the northwesternmost room of the cave. It should have 3 Zogres roaming around inside. The player may also kill Zogres and Skogres inside the dungeon rather than out in Jiggig as well. The player would use their keys to open any one of the undamaged coffins along the wall or on the tables. The coffins can yield these possible items:

Fayrg bones - worth Coins 1000 8,899
Raurg bones - worth Coins 1000 63,972
Ourg bones - worth Coins 1000 13,444

This is a great moneymaking technique for fighters.

190+, dual-wielding recommended, full completing of The World Wakes Kill Automatons. There are three types of Automatons: Automaton Tracers, who use Ranged attacks and are weak to crush, Automaton Guardians, who use melee and are weak to Fire spells, and Automaton Generators, who use magic and are weak to arrows. Each one has their own unique gloves drop; Pneumatic gloves, Static gloves and Tracking gloves respectively. They are worth 7,794,251, 6,436,798 and 6,812,052 respectively. All of their drops, excluding effigies, clue scrolls and some RDT drops are noted/stackable, so one can stay for long periods of time without having to go to the bank to deposit their items.

140 combat, high Magic recommended Kill Exiled kalphite guardians and collect Damaged chitin. With level 70 Smithing, Damaged Chitin can be made into Chitin scraps and sold on the Grand Exchange. Exiled Kaphites also have an excellent Blue and Crimson Charm drop rate, and drop various high leveled herbs and Rune items. With 85+ Magic, Defence, 68+ Summoning, and 70+ Smithing, a player can reasonably expect to pull in over a million coins per hour, depending on current Grand Exchange prices.

Coins 1000 1,000,000 coins per hour1000000

150-160 combat, high Ranged recommended Partial completion of the Freeing Sir Amik Varze subquest required Kill Black Dragons at the Evil Chicken's Lair at Zanaris. Using this route is much faster than Taverley Dungeon, even with the shortcut, as well as being much closer to a bank and there being more Black Dragons to kill. With a Royal Crossbow, using Super Antifire potions, and a Pak Yack familiar as well, a focused player can can pull as much as Coins 1000 1,500,000 in a single hour.

Due to constantly changing prices for items on the Grand Exchange, some information in this article may or may not be current.
