This video guide contains some great money making methods that you’ll not only earn OSRS Gold but also get some XP with them in the game of Old School RuneScape. In order to maximize your profit, be sure to check the prices before you do with these methods.

Please click Crumb’s video for more details on these money making methods, and all the content of this article is quoted from his video:





1. Runecrafting

Do double death runes (Abyss), you could make close to 1.5 M OSRS GP/H; Do nature runes (Abyss), you could make about 1.1M GP/H.

To get to the levels that you need to use these methods I just mentioned, you have to spend a very long time on training your Runecrafting level. Runecrafting is one of the best money makers in the game of Old School RuneScape, so this is a good option for you.


2. Smithing

Making Bars at Blast Furnace gives you a good amount of OSRS Gold: 

· Runite Bars: 1M GP/H

· Adamantite Bars: 800K GP/H

· Mithril Bars: 700K GP/H

· Steel Bars: 630K GP/H



3. Hunter

Doing Black Chins gives 1.5M OSRS GP/H depending on what your Combat level and Hunter level is, and doing this also gives you good XP.

Another method is Hunting Implings which is 1M GP/H, and this is a great method to make OSRS Gold without fearing getting PKed.


4. Mining

· Gemstone: 500K GP/H

· Volcanic Ash: 460K GP/H

· Runite ore: 450K GP/H

Mining Runite ore is a stable money maker, but the price of Gemstone fluctuates every now and then, so be sure to check the price of it before you mine.


5. Thieving

Stealing from the Rogues' Chests will make you 470K GP/H. This is a stable Thieving method for gold, but keep in mind that this is in the wilderness, so if you die, your GP per hour will go down.

The second way to make money is pickpocketing Master Farmers, which is 400K GP/H, but doing this has a high requirement.


6. Cooking

This doesn’t make a lot of OSRS Gold, but it’s something you can do while you are busy doing something else because you can AFK for a minute every inventory of fish you cook. There are many good options:

· Raw Karambwan: 230K GP/H

· Dark Crabs: 130K GP/H

· Sharks: 125K GP/H

· Monkfish: 90K GP/H


7. Fishing

· Minnows: 270K GP/H

· Anglerfish: 200K GP/H

· Sacred Eels: 167K GP/H

These fishing methods don’t give a considerable amount of OSRS Gold, but most of them are AFK, so these are good ways to make some money while training Fishing.


8. Farming

This is one that many players neglect. Farming herbs would make you 1M OSRS GP every day.

At level 62 Farming, you can begin to plant Snapdragon herbs which is a good way to make OSRS Gold.


9. Woodcutting

Cutting Magic is very AFK, and the Magic logs would give you about 150K OSRS GP/H.


10. Herblore

Basicaly, you could make 100K-500K OSRS GP/H, but the way that makes the gp changes every day. If you want to use this method, you need to work out what is the most profitable, because it fluctuates so much. Some days it is profitable to clean Herbs, other days it is profitable to make Unfinished Potions. So if you want to make some gold while getting Herblore XP, you should go check the GE prices and use some basic math to decide which method to choose.
