Lately I have seen many a large increase on Runescape with new players begging for money, or spamming the more experienced players for help. So I have decided to write an article on how to become one of the rich players on Runescape.
First off, when you enter the game, you need to decide what kind of fighter you want to be, your options are fairly limited, you can be a mage, ranger, or a warrior. Whatever you want to do, make sure that you specialize in one of the three, spend some time to research each type of fighter and make your selection that best fits your style. I chose to be a mage when I played because I discovered that the mage levels up just as slow as the ranger but the mage can battle warriors of the same level and have about four times better odds of winning the fight. The only problem with being a mage was I had to learn how to make money and make it quick to keep up.
Mining is possibly one of the easiest ways to make money in the game. It’s simple; go mine copper ore until you can mine iron then mine iron until you can make it into the mining guild. After you have gained access to the guild mine coal, you won’t have a million coins in a day; (unless you do nothing but sit behind your computer) but mining is a nice way to get some chunk change for whatever you need to buy.
If you have chosen the warrior path then along with your mining you should try smithing. It doesn’t make money as quickly as mining, but if you have the determination you can eventually sell full rune armor for 80k a piece.
Woodcutting is another way to make money but it is slower yet, with woodcutting the only way to make any real money is to cut willows, the good part is though that you can cut willows in the Draynor and the bank is right there so you can collect a lot of them before you go and sell them and you can make it worthwhile.
Battling is one that a lot of people look over when they talk about making money, probably because you only really make money if you are a warrior or a ranger because with the other fighting style you always have to be replenishing your ammo. When you do battle things, collect anything that seems to have a value, even bones can be sold for 5gp. Learn quickly that in the game of Runescape everything has a value, the harder something is to find though the more likely you will make bank off of it.
Use the Grand Exchange whenever you are selling anything, it especially keeps the scammers from doing what they do best. The grand exchange is the best place to buy and sell everything, the only problem is that sometimes you have to wait for a while to get what you want, but in the long run it is a worthwhile place to buy and sell.
Finding your niche can be very important, once you have began to make progress doing one thing don’t stop to do another. Once your niche has been found continue with it.
These are just a few ways of making money in Runescape, there are other options on how to make it and if you need some help or want more advice try going to Sal’s Realm. It is a very good resource to use for more information on what I talked about.
