|Making Money with Runescape
It may take a little time to get some seed starting cash, but at full speed in less than one week you could be banking in profits of 500k per hour. There are times where you have to be patient, and you might get frustrated at times, but stay in there and you will be successful.
To be a successful millionaire you will have to put in a little bit of effort and never give up. Giving up will only make it worst for you. Be sure to learn your prices so you don't get ripped off.
I have used all theses ways to make me money, nothing will be left out. All my dirty little secrets are here in this guide.
You're probably asking yourself, How do I get started making millions? I am so excited about this guide. I will show you 2 good ways to get your 1st 100k which is a good way to get starting pay. You don't even need any items to get started.
Lvl 3 Noobs: This is the quickest way and the most efficient way for you to get your 1st 100k. Yeah you probably seen those other guides that told you to pick bananas or to buy rune essences that are impossible to buy at 10 each.
The best thing to do is to kill chickens, you're probably laughing right now, but this is it. Go kill chickens and collect the feathers. Each chicken will drop 5 to 15 feathers. Feathers currently sell for 10-15 gc each. So you will get 50-225 gold coins for each chicken you kill. Below is a list of the possible income for each chicken killed.
5 feathers = 50-75 gold coins
10 feathers = 100-150 gold coins
15 feathers = 150-225 gold coins
Since feathers keep adding up and only take up 1 space in inventory there is no
need to be running to the bank. You can easily get 10,000 feathers in 5 hours
work by killing 650-2000 chickens. Once you have 10,000 feathers, then you
can sell them off by looking for a buyer in the runescape forums. You will get
somewhere between 100k to 150k for your 10,000 feathers.
You could also shear sheep to get 1000 wool and to craft them into balls of
wool which sell for 100 each if you sell them in bulk. Get 1,000 of them if you
choose this way. Takes a long time to do, So I recommend the chickens.
Low lvl players: Do the same thing as above, and also while you are there buy
some feathers from other players. Buy them for 1-3 gc each. A lot of people
will sell them for that price. Once you reach 10,000 feathers, then sell off your
feathers by looking for a buyer in the forums. High lvl players: You know what to do. Use your best skill to make a 100k. Do
it by fishing lobsters or mining coal or iron ore till you reach 100k. Or you can
also kill chickens.
You don't necessarily have to start out with 100k. 50k will be fine but 100k is
Congratulations you now have 50-100k and are now ready to become a
runescape merchant millionaire.
Ways to Make Money:
This is how a lot of players in runescape make their quick millions.
Question: What is Merchantism?
Answer: Merchantism is the act of making profits, by simply buying items real
cheap and selling for higher prices.
• Merchantism tips and tricks:
• Always keep a good amount of cash on hand, Only spend about 1/3rd to
1/2 of your current money for the merchandise you're going to sell. You
just might see a good deal while you are selling.
• Start out by only merchanting 5 to 6 items at a time.
• Buy in Bulk and sell in bulk. Be sure to buy stuff low and sell high.
• Selling in the game can take a while. For bulk items use the forums for
buyers. If you are a member then make a post on the bulk items you are
wanting to sell. You usually always get a buyer for ores and bars within
5-10 minutes from a forum posting.
• Avoid scams at all costs. Many merchants get scammed easily. I even
got scammed myself. Be sure to always double check the last trade
window before making a trade. If the deal sounds to good to be true then
stay away or approach with caution.
• Be firm on your prices, many players try to talk you into lowering prices.
Be firm and walk away a couple steps, there is a 75 percent chance that
he'll give in and buy your items.
• To make quicker cash by merchantism do bulk trades or high priced
items over 100k
• Always keep a calculator at hand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
• Hot items and biggest profit items for merchantism:
• One of the biggest profit items is Iron ore. Buy iron ore for around 25 to
50 gold coins each. This is very easy to buy and is very plentiful. ( My
dirty little secret: I hire iron miners and pay them 35 each. I currently
have 15 iron miners that bring around 25,000-50,000 iron ore per week. I
pay them their paychecks each Friday. So If I get 40,000 iron ores that
week I end up paying my miners 1.4 million gold coins for 40,000 iron
ore at 35 gold coins a piece. I then take all the iron ore and sell it for 100
each to other players. So 40,000 times 100 each equals 4 million gold
coins. So I just Profited 2.6 million gold coins from my 15 miners.) Once
you get heaps of iron ores, then sell them for 100 gold coins each.
• Steel bars is still hot now. Try to buy these for around 250-350 each and
resell these for 500 to 600 gold coins each.
• Coal is also a hot item, and the fallowing ores, iron ore, coal, silver,
gold, mith, addy and rune. All these bars are also hot.
• You can also get huge profits from rare holiday drops if you can find
To get started in merchantism find about 5-6 hot items you would like to buy
cheap and resell for higher profits. World 1 market is a good place to sell your
items. This place is also full of scammers so be careful. Buy all your items in
other worlds, try not to buy items in world 1 due to the heavy mount of
scammers. This guide also contains a street price guide on most runescape
When I was a low level player about a year ago, I started merchantism once I
was able to go to the champions guild. I had purchased rune maces for 14.5 k
each and resold them to lvl 30-40 players for 18-25k each. After this I got
hooked and started on other items. Use items that you are very familiar with
and stay away from items you don't have much knowledge of. Once you get to
know the low and high prices of items, then you will start making more and
more money and you can add in more items to merchantism. Always sell your
items in notes. Weapons and armor will be ok not to sell in notes.
Congratulations!!!! You now know the basics of Merchantism and can now
make your millions in no time.
• Starting a Runescape Business:
If you get bored from Merchantism then you can successfully run a runescape
steel bar making business. This Business will bring great wealth to you and
your miners. I currently pay my miners for this business, 150 per coal and 75
per iron ore. So it costs me 375 per steel bar to make. Once I make the Bars I
then sell them to other players for 600 each per steel bar. Sometimes 500 each.
I easily generate profits of 2-3 mil each week running this business. If you are a
member then you can also make cannonballs and sell them for 200-250 each.
Each bar produces 4 cannonballs. So if you make these you will get 800-1000
gc per steel bar which will mean a profit of 425-625 per steel bar. If you just
sell the bars after making them then your profit will be 125-225 per bar. You
can easily make 25,000 bars in a week. So you will bank in profits between
3.12 mil to 15.65 mil depending on whether you make cannonballs or just sell
the bars. I make balls and sell my bars, I generate between 3-6 mil a week
running this business. Do not buy your bars, otherwise it wont be a business.
Make your bars so you can pay miners a weekly check. Also offer bonuses to
your top miners. The more ores you can get and make into bars, the more
sucessful your runescape business will be. If you have trouble selling your bars
then look in the forums for buyers or make a post.
• Using Skills:
Mining - Mine heaps of ores, iron and coal is best. 5-10 gc per tin and copper.
75-100 gc per iron ore. 100-250 gc per silver ore, 150-300 per gold ore, 100-
200 per coal, 350-450 per mith ore, 800-1000 per addy ore and rune ores are 8-
Smithing - Bronze bars 25 each, iron bars 100 each, steel bars 500-600 each,
silver bars 200-300 each, gold bars 250-400 each, mith bars, 900-1200 each,
addy bars 1500-3000 each, rune bars 10-15k each.
Magic - Make things from fletching and smithing and high alch them for quick
Combat - Fight High level monsters, lesser demons and other higher lvls. Or
for low lvls kill chickens for feathers. If you are a high lvl, then go fight the
new lvl 333 monster in Shantey's Pass, Once in a while He will drop Dragon
Chains, which bring in 40-100 mil just for the chain. So far about 3 people got
one. Who will be next? Fishing - Fish lobbies, swordies, tuna, sharks, and bass. 100-250 per lobby,
200-300 per swordie, tunas get around 50 each, sharks fetch 600-800, and bass
are around 250-300. Bass heal more than lobsters but are members only along
Crafting - Make items from crafting and sell them for high prices. I personally
don't do much crafting.
Thieving - Go steal stuff, ( My Dirty Little secret, You can also get rich from
silk, have 5 of your good buddies steal silk for you and have them trade you
their silk. Once they trade you, sell your silk to the silk merchant for 60 gold
coins each. Once you sell them your friends will have another load ready, keep
repeating this and you can easily make a mil in 4-6 hours. You get around 1620
gold coins per each load of silk you sell to the merchant. With 5 friends they
will get you around 2 loads per minute. You're friends will get the thieving xp
and you will get the cash. I guess this is why I only have lvl 16 thieving, and
they are up to 70 already. So you will get 3240 gc per minute, and around
194,400 Gold coins per hour. So at this pace for 5 hours you will get 972,000
gold coins.) You will have to be a member to do this. The silk stall is located in
Ardougne. A lvl 3 noob that's a member can do this.
Fletching - My favorite skill - I make addy arrows and sell them for 150 each, I
also make yew shorts and longs and Hi Alch them for cash. I can make an easy
1-2 mil a day with this skill. You can also make arrow shafts and sell them for
10-15 gold coins each.
Woodcutting - 10-20 gold coins for regular logs, 20 for oak logs, 15-50 gold
coins for willows, 100 gold coins for maples, 300 gold coins for yews, and 1k
for magic logs.
Dancing - Lol you can always get 1 gold coin for doing a good dance, although
this is not a skill, I just thought I'd throw in some humor here.
I have a friend that does a lot of dueling in duel arena, You place bets and the
winner of the duel will get the items. You can get rich from dueling and you
can also lose a lot of money from dueling. My friend even dueled for party hat
sets, drag mediums and other goodies. He has a good dueling account, and can
make an easy 2-3 mil a day from dueling people. Duel Arena is located out in
Al Kharid. You must be a member to enter the gates. Many people here will
stake for 100k even up to a mil at a time. I will have a duel Guide in the future on the website for $6.95, so look for it shortly, as I am still getting good tips
from my high lvl friend.
• Pking in the wildy:
I also make good money from pking people in the wildy, I am a lvl 72 ranger
with 81 combat, and I make a lot of kills in the wildy. So far my best pk was
for a dragon medium helm which I cashed in for 2.4 mil. I even got over 25
rune scimis, about 15 rune 2h's, tons of runes and a bunch of other goodies. Just
try to avoid the large clans, I one time walked into a big clan of like 50 people
all lvl 90-100's. So be careful. Good thing I had my ring of life and didn't lose
anything. If you don't have a skull then wait for people to pk you 1st. Also only
pk people with skulls, so they will lose all their items. I like to kill people that
are weak and poisoned.
• Misc. Ways to make a quick buck:
Here are some other money making tips to make a quick buck.
If you are a member another good way to make money is to buy and sell
cannons. You can easily buy cannons for 500-550k and easily sell for 600-650k
If you have 32 quests points and is able to get into the champions guild, then
you can buy Rune maces there for 14.5k and resell to lvl 28-43 combat fighters
for 18-25k each
Most of the time I am in Al Kharid smelting Steel bars. I always make at least
an extra 10k a day from selling 3 air runes to people for 1k. People Don't want
to walk and they will pay 1 k for 3 air runes so they can teleport to their Next
destination. I also sell a lot of Law runes for 1k each also. These can be
purchased from the Wizards Guild for 240 each. You can also get from fighting
the lvl 7 wizards in Varrock.
Quests Items: You can also get good money from people who are in the middle
of a quest and quickly needs something.
Examples. Burnt Meat from which's potion quest. 1k each.
Bead sets 2-4k
3 Goblin plate bodies 3-5k
silver bars 1k each
Planks 500-1k each Plus many other stuff for quest items. Simple quest items usually sell for 1k
each. But you will only get these prices from people who are in the middle of a
You can also walk around the dragons and pick up the dragon hides as people
fight them. Just stay back a little and be careful. Most people are there to level
up and don't pick them up. Dragon hides sell for 1.5k to 3k each depending on
Other ways to make money is to check the general Stores. Everytime I go to
Varrock General Store on world 20, I always see heaps of coal for like 25 gc
each, and Iron ore for 5 gc each. Buy them up to resell later.
Investing your Money:
• What To Buy:
Rare holiday drop items are the best things to invest your money in. Odds are
that if you have money then you will want to spend it like mad. Spend it on
Halloween Masks, Party Hats, Easter Eggs, Christmas Crackers, Half wine
jugs, Pumpkins, Disk of returnings, etc. These items are always going up in
price and the best items are masks and the party hats.
• What Not to buy:
Stay away from the new novelty items, like the trimmed armors and godly
armors, I also have the other novelty items in the Non Rares/Rares price guide
below. These items are rapidly dropping in price and will always drop in price
as long as runescape is around. At the continued rate these items will only be a
little bit more than the regular sets a year from now.
White: 5,000k- 8,600k
Christams Crackers: 7,000-12,000k
Santa Hat: 130k-150k Masks:
Easter Egg: 100k-225k

Highwaymen Mask: 50k-100k
Pirate Hat: 75k-150k
Robin Hood hat: 2,900-3,700k
Mage Boots: 125-200k
Looking for Buyers:
The best place for buyers is on the Runescape Forums website. If you are a
member then you can make your own posts. If you a non-member then just
simply browse the forums to look for buyers and add them to your contact list. You could also check runescape websites, that offer player guides for free,
some of these sights might have forums.
You can also hop around the banks and the various market places in runescape.

Here is another way to make money by trading runes. You can buy
chaos and death runes from the rune shops in Varrock and at Betties’
shop in Port Sarim.
The shop prices are 90gp for chaos and 180gp for death. You can
then check the weekly price guide to see the average selling price.
As of 1-18-05 these were the average advertised buying and selling
prices for the two runes.
Chaos average buying price = 156gp average selling price = 175gp
Death average buying price = 350gp average selling price = 360gp
As you can see this is a very easy way to double your money,
however a lot of people know this and the rune shops inventory is
always low. To get around this you can try the following tips:
· Go to worlds with as few people as possible.
· If the rune shop is out of runes change worlds.
· Try playing at different times to find when there are fewer
· First thing in the morning is a good time to try.
· You also can ask to buy runes from the other people who are
buying perhaps they will still sell for a low enough price that you
can make a profit.
