By combining different skills, you can gain a considerable sum of both money and experience, rather than too much money and too little experience (or the other way around). Most of these methods do cost a large sum of base funds, and these methods may not be as effective as power levelling or strict money making methods.
|Making gold jewelry||*****||Crafting 8+|| Gold jewelry can be made from gold bars (not ores) which gives small amount of profit and crafting experience. Those with gems are not recommended for now. They can be sold to Grum's Gold Exchange or Grand Exchange.|
Grum's Gold Exchange buys necklaces with better price than rings and amulets.
|Collecting Potatoes||*****||None||Potatoes can be picked at the field directly West of Fred the Farmer's Chicken Farm near Lumbridge It takes approximately thirty seconds (or less) to collect a bag full of potatoes, and takes around a minute and a half to run to the nearest bank and back. Potatoes sell for 183 coins, and so a full inventory of them would yield 5,124, and would allow for a profit of 153,720 per hour, which is a very decent amount for the lack of skills required. If any explorer's ring is used, the profits may exceed 150,000 per hour. If low on energy, rest by the musician in Lumbridge. Alternatively, the potatoes could be used to train cooking.||None (An explorer's ring (any type) would be helpful, as they could restore one's run energy)|

|Making Mithril and Admantite bars, using Superheat||*****||30+ Smithing|
|Utilising Superheat will allow players to mine Mithril and Admantite for prolonged time at literally everywhere. Players are required to wield Staff of fire, bring 25+ Nature runes, pickaxe, an optional coal bag, the remaining inventory can be filled with ores with some empty slots or completely empty.|
Superheating will compress the ores mined into bars, just repeat the process and bank when the inventory is filled with bars. Coal bag can be used for extra coal income and speeding up process. This method although earns slower and requires magic, is benefited from less competition and saving time.
