I've played Runescape for over two years and have had a lot of people ask "How to make money on runescape ?". So, I decided to start this discussion to help people. I've been a "Free to Play" ( F2P ) player in those years and have a total of 1151 Total Levels. I have tried all of the F2P skills and have made enough gp's to buy a complete h'ween mask set ( including green, blue and red h'ween masks ) and level up my character's other skills. I have a Combat Level of 97 and my highest skill ( Crafting ) is 88. I have made millions of gp's in the game, and would like to share my experience. So, if you would like to discuss making money in runescape, please ask.

It's actually not all that hard if you develop your noncombat skills. I make 150k the first 1/2 hour I'm playing each day. It's rare that I bring in less than 1M-3M GP a day ( & then because I'm working on a new quest ). It seems most people just want "fast cash" without taking the time to develop the skills needed to get it.

Actually any of the skills are usable if you apply them right & don't buy the supplies.

150k a half hour is great. I agree that most people just want fast cash, but there are a few who would develop skills. I think they just don't know which ones are best. Bty, kool pic.

well... my way of getting coins fast is ..... go to karamja (get atleast lvl 40 fishing, so that u can catch lobsters) catch lobs to fill ur inventory go back to port sarim and go to bank at draynor village deposit all the fishes and then repeat the above steps... again ...and...again.............. after u are boored, go to varrock Grand Exchange and withdraw all your fishes as NOTE and then sell (exchange in GE) all of them... we get like 45k coins by selling 150 fishes!

I have found many foolproof ways to make money on f2p. Not as much as you hae made but seeing that I have 10 mil on level 49 I would think that thats pretty good lol

10 mil with a level 49 player is great! Not many people get 10 million. Have the recent rule changes made it more difficult or easy to make money? Do you use the Grand Exchange?

Of courese I use the G.E. but i dont like it since you cant always get the price u want. People wont pay you directly for anything anymore so merchanting is out (how i made most of my cash) Glad I made it before the trade limit!

i think the best way to earn 10 millions is to be a member. it is really difficult to earn 10 mils if u are a non-member.

i think that killing cockroaches, fist of guthix, and bounty hunter arn't bad ways of making money. also simply knowing if an item will go up or down.
