Making Rune 2h swords has long been a decent way to make money. With portable forge being added, this method is now much more profitable. The scroll of efficiency has a 5% chance to save 1 bar per sword, which is increased to 10% when using a crystal hammer; portable forges have a 10% chance per bar to save the bar.

To make swords with maximum efficiency, use a yak familiar near a bank that allows portable forges to be placed near, such as the Combat academy bank. Make a preset with 28 rune bars, and another one with rune bars in your pack yak. Click the forge and choose to make swords. Additionally, you can use portable forges on the one already deployed, however that is not required in hosted worlds. You can make just over 1200 swords per hour using this method without a yak.

It costs 633,900 coins per hour to host your own portable forge.
