OSRS F2P Money Making
As a F2P player it will be a lot harder to make money than for Membership players. You can buy Membership Bones with gold. I recommend that you buy Membership first then grind money to pay for further months, if you don’t want to spend real money.
F2P money making methods are marked with “!F2P!” in the guide.
OSRS PK Looting Money Making
Looting is a great way to make money in Runescape, you can actually make 250-500k Per hour doing this with no requirements. Always remember to have Looting Bag. All you need to do is go to PVP areas (World 18 & 25) and pick up items dropped by players.
Good areas for PVP looting are:
- Seers Village)
- Deep Wilderness Teleport Locations
- Edgeville Bounty Hunter Minigame
- Revenant Caves
Looting also works in PVE areas where players are too lazy to pick up items or they miss items. Just make sure you let people know you are looting and most players will be cool with it.
OSRS GE Flipping Money Making
Flipping items on the GE is one of the best ways of making money in Runescape, but you need a lot of money to start doing this.
Flipping is bascially just buying low and selling high. This is done in every real life market and it works just the same in OSRS.
It does take some time to get a hang on flipping. Below are some items that are good for beginners for flipping.
- Raw / Cooked Lobster
- Raw / Cooked Swordfish
