There are plenty of ways to make money in Old school Runescape, but obviously some are better than others. You don’t want to waste your time picking up eggs and feathers from people farming chickens. So here’s a few ways to make a decent money.
Killing chaos druids
Pretty much every list about farming gold in runescape should mention this method since you can do it pretty quick without having to have a super high combat level or crazy gear. Farming chaos druids is real easy since they have low health pool and they hit like a wet noodle. They usually drop a collection of herbs which go for a pretty penny, with the most famous one being the Ranarr weed.
The best part about this method is that is pretty fool proof. You just head on over to Taverly dungeon, head in and start killing chaos druids, pick up the loot and head back when your inventory is full. Easy and efficient way to farm gold.
Collecting steel platebodies
Now this method is a bit more risky and not quite as easy as the last one, but the rewards are potentially about double as well. Collecting steel platebodies goes as follows, you start from the Edgeville bank and run south till you find a lever, pulling the lever heads you over to the deep wildy. After that you’re going to want to head over to lava maze area. Once you’re there you’re going to want to be as alert as possible as there are probably going to be a few players farming this spot, however if you can find a spot where you’re alone it’s going to go much smoother and faster. Just wait for the platebodies to spawn, collect them, then run back to the lever that lead you here and teleport back to Edgeville and bank your loot. This method can be quite risky and much slower depending on the amount of people doing it. Obviously the less people the better for you.
Cooking raw tunas
This is not quite as lucrative as the other methods, however it’s completely safe and there’s very little that can go wrong. On the down side though you’re going to need Cooking skill of atleast 30, but you’re going to want to have it at 63 since that’s when you can’t burn them anymore, netting you a higher gph. So just go get some tunas, buy them if you cant fish them anymore, cook them and sell at a profit, a really simple and time tested method, but it works.
Grand Exchange Flipping
This, much like the chaos druid method, is a famous method, however it’s also quite an infamous method since you cant really make money as reliably as with other methods and if you do it wrong you might even end up losing money. The simple explanation of the method is, like in the real life market, you want to buy low and sell high(er). You generally want to invest in to an item that’s currently sold a lot, but you think could be dried up later. Generally flipping is pretty risky and I wouldn’t recommend it unless you know a lot about the game and which items to invest in.
These are some of the methods to make money in Oldschool runescape that I wanted to mention. OSRS is one of the most fun games in my opinion and it’s always nice to know a few of these methods to really impress your friends, when you’re rolling fat stacks while they’re barely getting by. The most fun I had however was playing on a runescape private server, since the community just seems so much more friendly and you don’t have to buy your membership.
