These guides are going away!
Because of our new money making guides, these skill-based guides will be deleted from the article space soon. If you see anything useful here that isn't on an appropriate new guide, please leave a message on the talk page.
Before editing this page, please see this page for guidelines on how to properly add information.


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.

Always remember that the more time you spend, the more money you will make/save. The less time you spend, the less money you will make/save. Time is a very valuable resource when making money. For maximum profit you need to be comfortable, ignore/eliminate distractions, and stay focused.

Completion of Gertrude's Cat, completed Plague City until access to West Ardougne Raise a kitten until it grows into a Cat, then sell it to the Civilian in West Ardougne for 100 Death Runes, which are worth 158 each, or 200 Death Runes if you have any Ardougne Cloak, which would double the profit per hour. This is a nice method of complementing another money making activity.

Level 20 Mining, 20 Smithing Silver ores can be mined, smithed into bars and sold in term of bars on the Grand Exchange for 270 coins. The best place to mine silver is Al Kharid mine, featuring 5 rocks and a nearby furnace, but the Crafting Guild features 6 rocks and is unpopulated, though 40 Crafting is required to enter the guild.

Level 30 Mining, level 30 Smithing level 43 Magic In various places you can find a fairly abundant supply of rocks for coal, mithril and adamantite ores. If you bring a pickaxe, a staff of fire, and a stack of nature runes to one of these sites, you can mine ores, use Superheat Item to smith them into bars, and sell the bars on the Grand Exchange. The advantage of using Superheat Item as opposed to simply banking the ores and later smelting them on a furnace is that you not only gain Magic experience, but you also increase your carrying capacity per trip as you will be bringing back a load of bars, rather than a load of ores. Of metal bars, steel sell for 1,257 coins, mithril for 2,015 coins, and adamantite sell for 3,516 coins. You can find these rocks in the Lumbridge swamp mine, on Crandor Isle, under the Grand Tree, at the Steel Mine or the Hobgoblin Mine. The latter two mines are in the Wilderness, however, so be prepared if you mine there. If you have 60 Mining you can also use the rocks in the Mining Guild.

Death to the Dorgeshuun quest
You can pickpocket H.A.M. guards in their hideout. The guards may yield metal keys that you can use on various chests in the hideout. From these chests you can obtain gems and jewellery. By alching these you can make a decent profit, though it is not recommended to alch plain gold jewellery. Bring an adequate amount of food, as you may be hurt by the guards.

80 Summoning
60+ Woodcutting
If you grow yew or magic trees in a farming patch and chop them down for logs, then use the Hydra's special ability (which instantly regenerates a tree chopped in a farming patch), you can constantly re-cut the same tree and sell the logs.

65+ Thieving 1+ Farming Playing Sorceress' Garden makes very good money, going through the maze and then picking the herbs. The summer garden is most efficient, as it frequently gives more valuable herbs. The types of herbs you can get are ranarr, irit, lantadyme, marrentill, guam, kwuarm, cadantine, dwarf weed, avantoe and harralander. You also get 50 Farming experience per pick, and you always receive 2 herbs at a time. By using the bank chest at Shantay Pass, and keeping every herb you get (saving trips through the maze), you can make a maximum of 150k-300k an hour. This can be further improved with a broomstick and TokKul-Zo (or other fast teleport to a bank), as it makes banking take less time.

73+ Mining

85+ Combat

Killing Living Rock Creatures in the Living Rock Caverns can earn a minimum of about 200k-250k an hour with a combat level of 85. Each living rock creatures always gives 5-24 Living rock remains which can be sold for 351+ in the G.E. along with some other valuable drop. Also as a rare occasion every 2 hours or so, the Living rock patriarchs always drop 177k worth of item once killed. At most, a skilled player can top up as much as 50k+ of combat experience an hour. Living minerals are 347 each.

77+ Hunter 69+ Summoning

Started Mourning's End Part I

Hunting Grenwall can make over one million coins an hour using the Fruit Bat familiar. Grenwalls require boxtraps baited with Raw pawya meat, which is obtained by catching the nearby Pawya. To catch Pawya, one must bait a boxtrap with a Papaya. Start at the Lletya bank. Take a Fruit bat pouch, at least 100 fruitfall scrolls, and 4-5 Box traps (depending on your hunter level). Run out of the city and recharge summoning points at the mini obelisk if needed. When at a Grenwall and Pawya hunter area, cast Fruitfall for Papayas. When the desired Papaya fruits have been obtained, bait the traps and catch Pawya. Then use the Raw pawya meat to catch grenwalls. After the first few catches, bait three of the five box traps with Pawya Meat and the remaining two with Papaya fruit. When Pawya Meat runs low, bait three of the traps with papaya and the other two with Pawya Meat. After a full inventory of high level herbs and Grenwall spikes, run back to the Lletya bank and repeat. Each Grenwall spike sells for 788 gp!

Note: The profit varies a lot depending on your hunter level; at level 77 the profit could be as low as 200k per hour. Simply selling the raw pawya meat might yield considerably more money per hour than using it to bait Grenwall.

91+ Construction, Cooking, Crafting, Farming, Fletching, Herblore, Runecrafting and/or Smithing Although it's sometimes frowned upon, charging for assists at Daemonheim in World 117 can be somewhat lucrative. Level 91 in one of the said skills is generally free or very cheap, but possessing level 99 in one could fetch 100,000 to 300,000 coins depending how prestigious or sought after the skill is. Also, level 99 in multiple or all skills can generate even more income!

85 Fletching, 75 Woodcutting, 55 Magic, 10 Crafting Magic shieldbows are in fairly high demand for casting High Alchemy on in order to train Magic. Magic shieldbows can be sold for about 1,233 coins each, or High Alchemy can be cast on them to obtain 1,536 coins each. The player can woodcut magic logs, make bowstrings, make the magic shieldbows, and cast high alchemy on them and receive free XP in many skills and still strike a profit. You may however lose money this way due to fluctuating prices on the Grand Exchange.

None! This is a profitable and very easy way of making money. First go to the bank south of the Grand Exchange in Varrock. You will see a long line of trees to the South-West, chop these down. Do not chop down the oaks because they are useless in this method. Once you have a full inventory of trees, craft them into arrow shafts. Once you are satisfied, sell them to the Grand Exchange which so happens to be right next to you!

None! This is sometimes profitable due to the addition of bonfires, but collection ashes in Varrock can yield high profits. The market for ashes has gone up because of the addition of bonfires, which has made it more valuable.

Due to constantly changing prices for items on the Grand Exchange, some information in this article may or may not be current.
It is strongly recommended to check the live prices on the Grand Exchange before making larger investments in any method
