Low Level Runescape Gold Guide
Runescape Gold Guide
Making gold in Runescape (and video games in general) is one of the areas of the game people struggle with the most. To make money in real life, we go to work, and at the end of the week collect a paycheck. In MMORPG's, there generally aren't jobs, but instead combat and trade skills. In Runescape, the hardest part is earning your first small fortune. It is several times easier to turn 10 million in to 100 million than it is to turn 10k in to 100k. We've all heard it before - it takes money to make money.
In this article, I will show you how to take no skills and minimal gold and turn it in to hundreds of thousands of gold. Once you get to that point, many more gold making opportunities open up. The goal of this article is to get you to that point. Ready? Let's get started.
Method One: Cutting Logs
This one is pretty obvious. I'm sure most of us have wood cut at one point or another. It's boring, and it takes time, but this method is a good starting point for a few reasons: Everyone starts with an ax, basic logs sell for more than all the other logs up to Yew logs, and you gain woodcutting XP while making gold. When conducting my tests, I didn't pick the best spot available (I was cutting below the grand exchange). It took me roughly 2 minutes and 15 seconds to get a full inventory, with each one yielding roughly 1150 gold. This comes out to roughly 30k per hour. This is obviously not great gold, but it also will give you a fair amount of woodcutting XP per hour. It's not the best, but it is a familiar place to start.
Method Two: Chocolate dust
This method requires a knife and a small amount of start up capital. Chocolate bars can be bought on the GE for roughly 70 gold, and the dust can be sold for 86 gold. To create the dust, just use a knife on the chocolate bars. You can turn bars to dust as fast as you can click. A full inventory takes roughly 30 seconds, yielding about 540 gold. This method will net you roughly 65k per hour, with no skills required.
Method Three: Bow Strings
This method requires a membership and a very minimal upfront investment. Purchasing as much flax as you can (or as you want to turn in to bow strings) from the grand exchange. Then go to the Lumbridge Castle third floor bank. From there, with a full inventory of flax, run down one flight of stairs and use the flax on the spinning wheel to turn them in to bow strings. Each run takes roughly 1 minute and 20 seconds, yielding 3.5k gold per run. This comes out to roughly 157k per hour, and it gives you crafting experience. If you have a membership, I would highly recommend this method.
