Osrs money making - how to quickly get rich in Old School Runescape

There are numerous ways to make gold in osrs. In this money making guide we are going to list few of them that can net you profit both in beginning of your adventure and later in the game without breaking any rules or privacy policy.

OSRS Money Making - Low level methods 

1. Tanning Cowhides (free)

Every Runescape player should know about this money making method as it does not require any combat levels. It’s old content but still very profitable for every new player. In this method we will focus on bringing cowhides from your bank account to a tanner. For both f2p and p2p players Ellis in Al-Kharid will be the best choice. All you need to do is to withdraw 27 hides and 81 coins (required as a payment for tanner) and head to building north of the bank (search just above the smith). When you are there just right click Trade Ellis then tan all the leathers. This averages out to about 1350 hides tanned per hour which you can increase up to 2000 while using energy or stamina potions. If you don’t have money to start off just collect cow hides from cows in lumbridge although it is recommended to tan hides already stacked in bank for more effective and less time consuming results.

Profit : Around 54k gold per hour

Requirements : none

2. Fletching headless arrows (members)

Headless arrows are made by using feathers on arrow shafts. You can craft arrow shafts from wooden logs by simply using knife on them. Most of the high level fletchers will not put their time to make headless arrows and just but them off grand exchange. This creates opportunity to make gold. All you need to do is use feathers on arrow shafts and choose the amount you want to make. This is very afk-friendly method although it is not entirely free unless you collect feathers by yourself.

Profit : 80k gold per hour

Requirements : Arrow shafts and feathers (or gold for them)

3. Collecting planks (free)

Planks are material used in lower contruction levels and in some quests. As they cannot be made but only collected you can make money by simply running around Barbarian Agility course while picking them up. Switching worlds after picking up every plank is faster than waiting for them so it is recommended in this method.

Profit : 130k per hour

Requirements : None

4. Cutting Teak Trees for Logs (Members)

Teak Logs can be collected with woodcutting skill by simply cutting down Teak Trees South- West of Castle Wars. They are used in both Firemaking and Construction which makes them good item for sale. Depending on your woodcutting level you can make somewhere between 100 and 300k gold. Since only 35 woodcutting is required to start off, it is one of the best early game moneymakers for new players that don’t want to waste their time skilling early on. To get around faster use ring of dueling for cheap Castle Wars teleports.

Profit : Between 100 and 300k gold made by hour

Requirements : 35 Woodcutting (Although more is recommended for better gains)

5. Collecting wine of Zamorak (free)

Wine of Zamorak is one of more recognized money making methods in osrs. To start collecting Wine of Zamorak you need to go to the chaos temple west of Goblin Village. Equip air staff and take with you law and water runes. When you get to temple simply use Telekinetic Grab spell to take Wine of Zamorak from the table and repeat this process every time it spawns until your inventory is full. After that just use Falador Teleport spell or run to the bank to store your new acquired loot. This method will not only let you earn gold buy also train magic.

Profit : Around 200k gold per hour

Requirements : 33 magic for Telekinetic Grab spell, some law and water runes, air staff

6. Smithing dart tips (free)

Processing low level bars like bronze or iron might be profitable since bronze bar costs are low (around 120 gold) and one bar can be used to make ten dart tips worth 240 gold. Players can go through around 1000 bars per hour making ten times more dart tips. The best place to use this method would be Varrock since its anvils are closest to bank making trips between each other faster and profit bigger.

Profit : Around 100k gold per hour

After your inventory space runs out use ring of dueling to teleport to castle wars. Deposit all your gathered bananas and repeat the process from beginning. Filled baskets are better sellers than bananas alone since people use them in farming so make sure you put them in grand exchange.

Profit : Around120k per hour

8.Smithing iron bars at blast furnace (members)

Smithing usually is more expanse generating skill than gold making one. Not this time though. This process is a great opportunity to make profits while gaining smithing experience.

After purchasing raw materials (iron ore in this case) head to the coffer and deposit 72k coins to pay off using blast furnace for an hour.

All types of dragonhides can be used as goldmakers with tanning but in this guide we will only focus on green ones as these are easier to obtain and don’t require as much gold as other types. Just as with cowhides all you need to do is to invest some money in hides and run between bank and Tanner in Al-Kharid. To make your routes more efficient use energy potions that will increase your running length. To start off simply fill up your inventory with hides in bank and take them all to

tanner north of Al-kharid bank (just above the smith). Use them on Ellis and select Tan all.

Minnow is type of fish that can be caught with small fishing net. Unlike other fishing spots it isn’t very AFK friendly since they move every 15 seconds to different locations.

On this spot you can farm without banking items just by simply clicking fishing spots every 15 seconds.

To do this method just go to black chinchompa spawn and put some box traps. Make sure to look when chins spawn and set traps accordingly. Kill any chinchompa that wanders off your trap and set it again if necessary. In the end you should catch around 240 chins per hour.

Withdraw 14 Strawberries and 14 Pie Shells and combine them to make Part Summer Pies. After that repeat this process with Watermelons and add Cooking Apples in the end. When you finish you should have Raw Summer Pies that you can sell for gold on Grand Exchange. Up to 740 Raw Summer Pies can be made by hour.

3. Pickpocketing master farmers (members)

Pickpocketing master farmers can result in amazing gold made on higher levels of thieving. You can find master farmer Martin in Draynor Village. If you get there try trapping NPC so he won’t move increasing your gold made. At the low level thieving (around 38) you can pickpocket them with around 50% success rate although on 90 level this rate goes up to 98%. This results in increasing profit made from 300k per hour up to 1mil per hour. Remember to bring with you rogue equipment for double loot and seed box to increase space available in your inventory.

Profit : up to 1mil per hour

Requirements : 38 Thieving (90+recommended)

4. Growing magic tree saplings (members)

This is one of the best money making methods known in OSRS. Magic saplings are used to train Farming and take a lot of time to grow while also not giving too much experience. Because of that people who have gold will pay a lot to make their life easier. To plant seeds in pots simply use seed on pot while having gardening trowel in your inventory. When you finish make sure to cast Humidify spell to water down all plants in your inventory. This will save you the time running around with watering can and clicking on every sapling. Keep in mind that magic seeds have relatively low buying limit on Grand Exchange so you might want to stack them beforehand.

Profit : Up to 6mil per hour

Requirements : Astral Runes, Magic seeds, Filled plant pots, Dream Mentor Quest , Lunar Spell book, Steam Battle staff, Gardening Trowel , 75 Farming, 68 Magic

5. Flipping items on Grand Exchange (free)

In terms of osrs money making this can be the most time efficient one. This way of gold making requires good amount of cash to start with. What you need to do is search for items with high profit margins. To find best ones try using online services that track sell rates and prices of grand exchange equipment. Find item that you think could sell for more and try to buy it in big amounts for as cheap as possible. After you acquired items that you want to sell just put them on GE with bigger price and be patient. Remember that using this method can net you huge profits but also have a risk of being a time and gold waste.

Profit : Unlimited

Requirements : Gold
