Sorry for this really weird looking blob.

I (yoyo) am taking a temporary leave from RS.

This thread is for the taking.

PM Sparhawke if you want to take it over.

Peace, Yoyoma



EDIT
^ To make my life easier :box:





Dear Everyone,
Back in May, this forum was filled with topics of people asking how to make money. Most of my posts have been in topics like that, and I had just had enough. After making several suggestion topics to remove these topics, I decided to take matters into my own hands. This topic was then born. I wasn't sure how the staff viewed this topic, and many times I had to bump this just to keep it alive. On 6-26-09, I freaked out. I couldn't find my topic. I went through a dozen topics, and couldn't find this. I then went to my topics, and found it. When I went to look for it in the RuneScape Questions Forum, I found this stickied. It took almost two months, but at 12:54 P.M., on June 26th, 2009 I read a post by Spar. The staff agreed with me, and stickied this topic. Spar informed me that this topic had gotten much attention from the community, and other communities.

In his post he said:

Sparhawke said:

To this end I and the other staff declare this thread stickied :)

(So that you dont have to keep getting people to bump it but you still have to keep maintaining it :box:.)

Spar, I will keep maintaining it. And just because this is now stickied, doesn't mean that you don't have to stop posting ideas. This wasn't written by me. I'm just the publisher. I just put it out there, I didn't write this. The Community did. I will continue to update the format, and include new ideas. And to this, I say, Thank you. So now, for the last time, I look at this, and grin, because I will not have to bump this topic ever again.
A very happy,
~Vincent

Introduction

Hello. I've noticed over time a lot of people have been asking how to make money. People have been giving the same general answers like:
  • Double Nat Crafting
  • Merchanting
  • God Wars Dungeon
I've noticed that this almost never answers the question. The methods on how to make money in RuneScape are always being adjusted, especially with updates that JaGeX provides. I.E. When JaGeX brought out the Grand Exchange merchanting was revolutionized with instantly being able to buy and sell items. This also came along with helping to prevent RWT'ing.

So you may wonder what this topic is... Well, I've answered a lot of money making questions. There always seem to be different methods out there so, this topic is just a compilation of different methods. You may notice there is a link to the money making guide above, but that can't be updated very often, so several methods in that are outdated, but some still work. This is just a "guide" if you want to call it, that can be updated on a more regular basis, with updated methods of money making. Here's the catch. This isn't just a copy of guides on the site. These methods are to be submitted by the community, of how people make money.

Money Making Method (addy ores mining)
F2P or P2P : Free play.
Requirements : lvl 70 mining
Description of what to do: go to crandor, outside of mining guild, lumby mining spot west, or p2p area to mine addy ores!
It's good money, WAYYY less crowded than yews, the only problem with addy ores...it takes like 5 minutes to regenerate, it takes like 3 minutes to mine (lvl 70 mining),
and it's only 1 rock per ore so you got to click many times, and there's not a good concentration of them
Submitted by: storm2007

Requirements: some basic money, patience, fast typing,

Submitted by: storm2007

Money Making Method (Gold ore mining)
F2P or P2P F2P
Requirements at least 41 mining (for rune pic), a brown apron, some patience, teleport runes and cabbage ring are optional but very useful
Description of what to do: go to crafting guild, and mine gold ores, then use cabbage teleport to bank at draynor bank, then go back to crafting guild to mine and repeat, since you will probably have 100% run everytime you get full invent, you probably might as well run as much as you can
Submitted by: storm2007

Requirements (Items, Money, Levels, Quests etc.): cb 90+, food, and rune weapons and armor OR ranged weapons

Submitted by: storm2007

Money Making Method mith bar superheating
F2P or P2P (Can be both): f2p
Requirements (Items, Money, Levels, Quests etc.): lvl 50 smithing, lvl 60 mining would be good, fire staff, good amount of nature runes, a good amount of money if you buy ores
Description of what to do: there are many ways to do this, if you're f2p you gotta buy the nature runes, but the rest you can do whatever fits:
you can buy 4 coal and mine 1 mith and superheat

fantastic idea.

but maybe you should put a rule that GE merchanting ideas shouldn't be put here: they can be destroyed in the second you post the idea. and prices can still fluctuate.

If you want a post...

Merch extremely stable items. Items that DO NOT change their ge price whatsoever. Stuff like elemental runes and certain kinds of arrows/logs.

Buy them below medium price, sell at medium/higher.

i know it sounds simple/repeated, but i'm saying this again because this is foolproof. if you can't sell for higher, just sell at the price you bought at, they should sell fast (assuming you bought mid or less) and you wouldn't lose money.
