Moneymaking guide osrs

Moneymaking guide osrs DEFAULT

Today I have decided to share with you the best P2p money making OSRS guide, and here I have chosen different methods for everyone. That’s why you will see that there are p2p money making osrs methods with little or no requirements and other methods with some high-level places and skill requirements. 

I have also made sure to provide you with the information you need to complete each P2p money making OSRS method to meet the needs of both noobs and experienced players. You can’t use these techniques in F2p worlds, so you need to buy at least a 14-days membership to be able to do them.

1 . Collecting Snape Grass

Estimated Profit – 215.600 GP

p2p money making osrs

Items needed: Weight-reducing clothing, Water staff, Astral runes, and Law runes if using teleports

Skill:  72 Magic

Quest Needed:  The Fremennik Trials and Lunar Diplomacy 

The first P2p money making OSRS method is collecting snape grass. Snape grass is used as a Herblore secondary ingredient for Prayer potions and is always in high demand. You can collect them at Waterbirth Island, where there are six spawns. Each snape grass respawns in approximately 13 seconds on a fairly populated world.

After a full inventory, you can use the Home teleport to go to Lunar Isle and deposit the grass. Then, you can use the Waterbirth Teleport to go back to the island and resume collecting snape grass.

If you do not have the Lunar Spellbook, it is recommended that you go back to Rellekka by boat. Right-click Jarvald and select Travel to Rellekka. Run south-east to Peer the Seer and deposit your items. 

Note: You must have completed the easy Fremennik tasks to have this option with Peer. After depositing, simply run back to Jarvald, and talk to him until the option to travel to Waterbirth Island comes up.

2 . Cutting Diamond Bolt Tips 

Estimated Profit – 274.000 GP

p2p money making osrs

Items needed: Chisel, Diamonds, 5,000,000+ GP 

Skill: Fletching 65

The second P2p money making OSRS method is Diamond bolt tips. They are used to make Diamond bolts, which are effective ammunition against boss monsters. It can be very profitable to cut diamonds into tips, but there is also a risk of losing money.

Before buying diamonds in bulk, test the profit of one of them. With a chisel on hand, you can withdraw 27 diamonds at a time. Each diamond becomes 12 tips when chiseled. 

It takes around 70 seconds to cut an inventory of diamond bolt tips, so up to 1,400 diamonds can be cut per hour. The price paid for diamond bolt tips can vary by more than 20% on either side of the median price.

In order to maximize your profit, buy one diamond bolt tip instantly, and sell yours for slightly below that price. It can take hours to sell all of your tips this way, but it can double your profit.

Diamonds have a buying limit of 11000 every four hours. It may be worthwhile to buy diamonds overnight on the Grand Exchange or to buy them in bulk on the RuneScape Forums.

3 . Crushing Bird Nests

Estimated Profit – 430,000 GP

p2p money making osrs

Items needed:  25,000,000 GP, Pestle and mortar,Bird nests

Skill: None needed 

For this P2p money making OSRS method, we are going to make Crushing bird nests. Crushed nests are used to create Saradomin brews.

Because these are often used to train Herblore and for combat, and crushing bird nests gives no experience, many players avoid making crushed nests and buy them directly from the Grand Exchange. 

This opens up an opportunity to crush bird nests for profit. Like all methods involving large amounts of buying and selling, which require relatively high capital to start, it is recommended to test the market by crushing one nest first to make sure it is profitable.

To crush a bird’s nest, use a pestle and mortar on it. It will slowly grind the nests one by one, so the speed can be significantly increased by crushing each nest manually. 

Doing this may be easier by placing the pestle and mortar next to the last nest in your inventory, reducing the distance you need to move your mouse. With this, a maximum of approximately 5,000 nests may be crushed per hour.

4 . Tanning Black Dragonhide

Estimated Profit – 571,200 GP

p2p money making osrs

Items needed: 10,000,000 GP, Weight-reducing clothing, Energy potions, Black dragonhides

Skill: None

Black dragon leather is used to train Crafting, and it is always in high demand. Because black dragonhide must be tanned into the leather before it can be crafted, tanning the hides in bulk can be highly profitable.

Because the price difference between hides and leather can be fairly small, it is important to buy the hides for a low price and sell the leather for a high price. You can lose out on up to 50% of the profit if you are not patient. 

Test the profit by buying one black dragonhide and one black dragon leather. If the difference between the two is less than 200, it may be worth it to switch to green, blue or red dragonhide.

To create black dragon leather, black dragonhide must be taken to a tanner. Ellis, in Al-Kharid, is the quickest tanner, and there are no requirements to use him. Withdraw 27 black dragonhides from the bank south of the tanner and 20 coins for each hide you want to tan.

Run north into Ellis’s building and right-click Trade Ellis. Tan them all, and run back to the bank. Each run takes approximately 25 seconds while running, and 45 seconds while walking. This averages out to about 2,800 hides tanned per hour, yet a player can tan around 2,000 hides every hour without the use of energy or Stamina potions.

5 . Mining Gemstones

Estimated Profit – 714,814 GP

p2p money making osrs

Items needed: Rune or Dragon pickaxe, Amulet of glory, Karamja gloves 3 or 4 Gem bag,  

Skill:  Mining 41+, or 61+

This P2p money making OSRS method is calculated based on 750 gems per hour. Mining gems in Shilo Village Mine with Karamja gloves 3 or 4 and a Dragon pickaxe can be very profitable.

P2p players can bank in the conveniently located Bank Deposit Chest. If you use this strategy you can average up to 300-750 gems an hour and get roughly between 285,925.74 and 714,814.35 profit predicated on levels, efficiency, and luck.

If you have the gem bag from the Motherlode Mine you can use it to save inventory space by storing standard uncut gems. This can be combined with fletching uncut opal and uncut jade into bolt tips, leaving the remaining 24 inventory spaces to be filled with uncut red topaz, maximizing profit in the above-ground mine.  

Everybody who has completed the Hard Karamja Diary will gain access to the underground portion of the gem mine, which has an additional 48 gem rocks, and a Bank Deposit Chest. 

With tick manipulation at maximum efficiency, mining in the underground section of the mine with a dragon pickaxe at 99 Mining can yield around 85,000 Mining experience per hour and around 1,250 gems per hour, totaling 1,191,357.25 profit.

6 . Killing Green Dragons 

Estimated Profit – 757,402 GP

Items needed: Reasonably strong Melee, Rune equipment or Ranged gear, An anti-dragon shield or a Dragonfire shield, Multiple charged, amulets of glory, Mythical cape(teleport) 

Skill: Combat 80+ for Melee, Ranged 60+ Ranged, Prayer 25 for Protect Item

Using this P2p money making OSRS method that you have completed Dragon Slayer 2. After that, you may start killing green dragons in the Myths’ Guild basement.

 These are outside the wilderness and much closer to a bank, alongside ease of access with the mythical cape teleport. In this place, there are two dragons, and you could have a profit of 743,652.5 per hour, killing 170 dragons per hour with 80+ melee levels. 

They always drop dragon bones and green dragonhide along with various other chance drops, which sell for 2,912 and 1,465 GP. It is worth mentioning that your actual profits may be higher or lower depending on your speed and luck.

7 . Pickpocketing Master Farmers

Estimated Profit – 1,627,452 GP

Items needed: Ardougne cloak 3/4, Rogue equipment for guaranteed double loot, 

Seedbox to save inventory space, Food (if you have below 94 Thieving) 

Skill: Thieving 38+ 50 and 50 Agility for Rogue equipment, Decent Hitpoints

Note: In order for this P2p money making OSRS method to work and make the listed profit rate that is calculated you need to have Thieving 94 while wearing full Rogue equipment with completion of the Ardougne Diary (hard).

For the players with lower thieving they will not achieve this profit rate and for them will have a lower profit rate, I don’t want to make predictions because the profit can fluctuate. Pickpocketing master farmers can yield good amounts of seeds for Farming. 

The real money-makers are Ranarr seeds and Snapdragon seeds which are worth 69,014 and 88,220 respectively. These seeds are very rare but make up 94.8% of the profit.

The master farmer, whether he’s Martin in Draynor or not, has to be trapped inside the fence to optimize the Thieving experience. He moves on his own accord, so you will have to wait patiently to trap him. After he’s trapped, you should keep the gate closed.

If you are low on health, you can steal some cake from Baker’s stall in Ardougne. Otherwise, you will need to use conventional food to restore Hit Points. Profit varies enormously based on the thieving level, greatly improving after certain milestones.

8 . Crafting Nature Runes Through the Abyss

Estimated Profit – 1,709,091 GP

Items needed: Small through giant Runecraft pouches, Multiple charged amulets of glory (50+ charges needed), Ring of dueling (optional), Any pickaxe, Protective gear mixed with weight-reducing clothing, Pure essence, Stamina potion, Monkfish, Amulet of glory. 

Skill: Runecraft 44-91, Mining 21 – 70+ , Hitpoints 70+ and Agility (optional) 

At average speed, you can do about 50 trips to the nature altar via the Abyss per hour, using the amulet of glory to teleport back to Edgeville, and using an equipped pickaxe to mine through the rocks in the Abyss. 

You need to recharge your pouches every nine trips, at the Dark mage, to prevent the giant pouch from degrading. Using the small through giant Runecraft pouches, you can hold up to 54 in essence per trip, resulting in a profit of 30,240 per trip at 91 Runecrafting.

Assuming that you can make 50 runs per hour, with P2p money making OSRS method you can make a profit at lower levels using the available pouches can be expected to be roughly: 804,470 at 75 Runecraft, 567,320 at 50 Runecraft and 455,720 at 44 Runecrafting.

The Mage of Zamorak is located in low-level Wilderness, near the source of the River Lum. This is a fairly safe area, but there might be player killers, so it is advised not to take expensive items on the trips to the Abyss.

The best setup would be cheap but protective gear. The use of weight-reducing clothing is also recommended. Falador shield can be useful to negate the loss when killed by a player, as it can recharge prayer instantly which can be used to activate Protect Item.

 The use of an abyssal bracelet is optional but is ultimately too expensive to be worth using. Inside the Abyss, the creatures there will be aggressive and might do fair amounts of damage so be careful.

See Abyss Inside the Abyss for more information on how to navigate the Abyss. Once inside, enter the nature rift and craft the essence in your inventory and your pouches. Teleport back to Edgeville with an amulet of glory and repeat.

Using the ring of dueling is optional, but it helps in case players forget to swap out an exhausted glory for a charged one. Using Charge dragonstone jewelry scroll to recharge your amulets is recommended as it is quick, allowing you to spend more time runecrafting.


Be careful when you complete this P2p money making OSRS methods, make sure to follow the instructions for each method. I’m warning you that some of the profit rates may not be the same for everyone. 

Because if you have a lower skill level from that it is recommended most likely you will not have the same profit. That’s why I’m recommending you to have a bigger skill level especially for the methods that you see 50+ skill or 70+. I hope this P2p money making OSRS methods have helped you.


This is a list of ways to make money in Old School RuneScape and the requirements to do them. Please remember that these are just a few suggestions, and the prices and hourly rates are mere estimates.

If you notice a discrepancy between profits listed here and profits listed on guide pages, it is likely a caching issue. You can force this page to update by clicking here.

WARNING: Due to the constant changing of prices, some of the estimated values may be off. Do some research about the items first before you attempt to make money from them.

NOTE: Any method in the "Hourly Profit" section that relies on buying any item from the Grand Exchange is shown merely for the sake of completeness, as almost all of the shown methods involving purchases assume an infinite buy limit, which is unrealistic. Such methods include growing of saplings and processing of materials. It is advised to make money using methods that don't rely on purchase prices/have restrictive buy limits.

Stronghold of Security

Main article: Stronghold of Security

Players can visit the Stronghold of Security for some quick coins. Players only need to complete the first three levels to get 10,000 coins. This can be done even at Combat level 3. Just pick some cabbages on the way there from the field north of Lumbridge (or cooked meat from the lodge just above the entrance to the stronghold) and eat between rooms. Also, if you level up your Cookingskill a little, you could get some raw trout or raw salmon from a popular world at Barbarian Village and cook them on the everlasting fire next to the fishing spot. Cooking trout and salmon requires level 15 and 25 Cooking respectively.


Main article: Money making guide/Skilling

Another way to start making some gold pieces is by levelling up a skill such as Woodcutting, Fishing, or Mining. These three skills (Woodcutting, Fishing, and Mining) are known as the 'Big Three', and they have been the three primary money-making skills commonly used by players to make money in RuneScape.

Members, on the other hand, have access to an additional money-maker in the Hunter skill as well as an array of other content like high-level Runecrafting and Thieving. The latter is a very fast skill that unlocks many very effective money-making methods that require little-to-no startup costs or supplies, thus making it an ideal stat for Ironman accounts or players without a large bank.

Flesh crawlers

Note: Do not kill Flesh Crawlers on a free-to-play server because you can only get body runes and iron ore from them.

To kill them, go to the second level of the Stronghold of Security, and then head south into the large room containing them. Mages and rangers can easily safespot them. They drop herbs, fire runes, noted iron ore, nature runes and dust runes. If you have decent Defence and armour, then you can slay enough to get around 10,000 fire runes as well as iron ore and nature runes each trip, worth over 150,000 coins. An Amulet of glory could be useful for banking in Edgeville.



Flax can be picked in the flax field south of Seers' Village by members. Players can obtain around 1,000 flax per hour resulting in 4,000 (However, this is not recommended to do). Moreover, if players have 10 Crafting or higher, it can be spun into bow string, and approximately 1,000 bow string (worth 102,000) can be made an hour using the spinning wheel in Lumbridge Castle. It is best to buy flax and spin it rather than picking it.

Also, if players have at least completed all the easy Kandarin tasks, they can exchange their flax for bowstrings at the flax keeper. This can be done once per day based on UTC time.


There are three imps spawning at south gate of Falador, by killing imps they drop beads (yellow,white,black and red). Each bead is worth over 1,000, yellow beads are the most valuable at 868. Multiple Imps can also spawn around the volcano at Karamja.



Ashes can be sold for about 2,016 a stack on the GE. Ashes are abundant in the area surrounding the GE so this method should generate around 99,360 an hour assuming you are collecting a full stack every minute.



Cowhides can be tanned at a tanner for a small fee and turned into soft leather for one coin or turned into hard leather for three coins each. Cowhide can be turned into either soft leather, which is approximately 78,166 per hour, or hard leather, which is around 75,922 per hour, assuming a player can collect and tan approximately 374 hides in an hour. Just go to the Lumbridge cow field, loot 27 cowhides, run to the Al Kharid tanner, Ellis, pay him gold, bank, and then repeat. It is recommended that players complete the Prince Ali Rescuequest beforehand to allow them free passage through the gates, though the difference in hourly profits is marginal. New players should be aware that tanned leather cannot be traded at the Grand Exchange until the player has either 7 Quest Points or 24 hours of playtime.

Dark wizards

Wizard hat.png

Dark wizards, located south of Varrock, are level 7 and 20 wizards that can easily be killed by low levels, especially those using Ranged. They drop talismans and runes. Talismans can be sold to runecrafters for a decent sum of gold pieces. More specifically, fire talismans can be sold over the Grand Exchange for up to 4,924 each. This method only being useful for low level players, it is advised to wear Magic or Ranged equipment when fighting against them, as Magic can easily penetrate Melee armour. Also, targeting the level 7 wizards makes this method easier, as this is a single-way combat zone.

Iron ore

Iron ore.png

Head for the Al-Kharid mine, and find a world where there's one or more people powermining. Pick up the dropped ores, each worth 173, and head for the bank. Once you've gotten an amount of ores you're satisfied with, head for the Grand Exchange to sell your ores. This method can earn you roughly 80,099 per hour.

OSRS top 10 skilling money makers for P2P players

Even though we recommend PVM for moneymaking, there are many skills in osrs that can make you decent money and experience. Here are the top 10 P2P skilling money makers in OSRS, ranked in order by requirements (easiest > hardest).

1. [SMITHING] Blast furnace: up to 900K Profit/hr

OSRS money making with smithing at the blast furnace is the most profitable way to make money with smithing.

level required: 15

Profits: 60 – 900K/hr depending on your smithing level

More making smithing money-making methods in a separate guide

The blast furnace minigame not only offers one of the best money/exp rates in old school Runescape, but it’s also actually fun to do. When running the blast furnace in one of the 15 official worlds, you often see players converse with each other. Which takes me back to the nostalgic days of skilling, where people actually enjoyed the game and weren’t just mindlessly grinding.


  • Start The Giant Dwarf (anyone can do it)
  • Ice gloves (not needed but it does help a lot with GP/exp rates)


You should always run the blast furnace on the official worlds as those are the only ones where the blast furnace is actually running all the day, for which you’ll have to pay 75K per hour you spent there. If you’re unsure where to find the blast furnace or how to use it, we have a guide for that.

2. [FLETCHING] Stringing Bows: up to 225K Profit/hr

stringing bows are a great way to make money while you get 99 fletching

Level required: 55

Profits: 200K – 225K/hr depending on your fletching level

Fletching is a skill that becomes really profitable, really quickly. That is because leveling fletching is incredibly fast, you can get from levels 1 – 55 fletching in as little as 2.5 hours.

While cutting bows is also profitable, stringing bows is even better for money-making and has higher experience rates.

The bows you’ll be stringing are:

  • Levels 55 – 85: Maple longbow (u) for 200k profit per hour
  • Levels 85 – 99: Magic longbow (u) for 225K per hour

More in-depth fletching money making methods in a separate guide.

3. [COOKING] Cooking Karambwans: Up to 500K Profit/hr

afk or 1-tick karambwans are great ways to make money with the cooking skill

Cooking level required: 30, higher is highly recommended

Cooking is one of the easiest 99’s in the game because it’s so fast to level. Not to mention, you make money with the skill making it perfect for newer players.

Cooking Karambwans is a great cooking money making method where you can earn between 200 and 500K profit per hour depending on your level of attention. By regularly cooking Karambwans you make about 200K per hour but by using tick-manipulation you can make up to 500K per hour! 1-tick karambwans is also the fastest way to get 99 cooking as you can earn up to 1M Exp per hour!

4. [FARMING] Making money with Herb runs: up to 1M Profit/day

doing daily herb runs is a great skilling money making method with farming

Farming level required: 32

Other requirements:

  • Magic secateurs (increase herb yield by 10%)

Read: OSRS Farming Guide

Herb running is the perfect way to make passive money during the day. It’s possible to make over 1M a day doing this method if you do at least 5 runs a day with all patches unlocked.

Herb runs starts being profitable at 32 farming which is when you unlock ranarrs, though for players on a budget 38 farming is recommended for toadflax. Toadflax seed only costs 1.6K so it’s not the end of the world when a herb dies.

At lower levels, with toadflax seeds you’ll earn about 40 – 90K per trip depending on the number of patches you have unlocked. You can do herb runs every 80 minutes and your patches grow while you’re offline too so you can log in on osrs mobile from work, school, or anywhere else.

At higher levels, with snapdragon seeds players can earn between 80 – 200K per herb run, depending on the number of patches they have unlocked.

For more in-depth info on efficient herb running and patches location, check out our Efficient herb running guide.

5. [MINING] Gemstones: up to 500K Profit/hr

mining gemstones is a low level requirement way to make money with mining in osrs

Mining level required: 40

Other requirements:

  • Shilo village
  • Karamja gloves 3 (access to the mine + teleport there)
  • Gem bag (not necessary but reduces banking)

Mining gemstones can make you up to 500K profit per hour while also gaining a nice 50K exp per hour making this a great viable method to train mining.

However, profits of course depend on your mining level so a higher level is always advised. Lower levels (40+) will be making around 250K per hour doing this method.

6. [FISHING] Catching Sacred Eels: up to 350K Profit/hr

catching sacred eels is a very afk way to make money with fishing

Fishing Level required: 87

Other requirements:

There’s a reason many gold farmers come here, catching sacred eels is good money and very AFK. You can easily catch these while you’re doing homework, watching Netflix, or even while you’re playing a different game.

You also don’t have to bank, ever, which is nice. As you’ll be using a knife on the eels to turn them in Zulrah’s Scales.

7. [MAGIC] Humidifying clay: up to 900K profit/hr

humidifying clay is a great money making method to train your magic level up.

Magic Level required: 68

Other requirements:

  • Dream Mentor
  • Lunar Diplomacy

Players who have completed dream mentor and lunar diplomacy can make a lot of money by training their magic level. You can get 50K experience per hour doing this method which makes it a great way to train magic and make money at the same time.

For this you’ll need to equip a steam battlestaff and have astral runes to cast the spell + clay in your inventory. You will then turn the clay into soft clay using the humidify spell, that’s it!

8. [RUNECRAFTING] Astral Runes: up to 1.5M Profit/hr

crafting astral runes has the best profit/exp rate for runecrafting.

Level required: 82

Other requirements:

  • 82 Magic
  • Lunar Diplomacy completed

Runecrafting has many profitable money-making methods but running Astral Runes is one of the best ones in my opinion. You can make a nice 1.5M per hour while still receiving 35K per hour, which, believe it or not is a very good experience rate for runecrafting.

Runecrafting is a very slow skill to level but it can make you some serious money, which is why this made it to the bottom of this top 10 money-making methods in osrs list. If you plan to start training your runecrafting you should check out our recent runecrafting guide to help you gain levels quickly so you can start making money!

9. [HUNTER] Hunting Black Chinchompas: up to 1.6M Profit/hr

Black chinchompas are the best way to make money with hunter, they are only available in the wilderness.

Hunter Level Required: 80

Other requirements:

  • High magic defence gear such as black d’hide
  • Eagles Peak (to set up box traps)

Hunter is a very profitable skill at higher levels and hunting black chinchompas is the most profitable method to make money with hunter. However, it does require you to hunt in the wilderness making this a high-risk and stressful method to make money.

If you want to lower the risk you can hunt red chinchompas but you’ll be making half the money you’d make if you were hunting black chinchompas.

10. [THIEVING] Pickpocketing Elves: up to 3M Profit/hr

pickpocketting elves is the best way to make money with skilling in osrs.

Thieving Level Requirement: 85

Other requirements:

  • 97 herblore (93 with botanical pie) only needed for an extra 400K profit per hour
  • 50 agility (rogues outfit for double profit)
  • Song of the elves master-level quest
  • Ardougne hard diary

Pickpocketing elves is currently the best way to make money with skilling in OSRS, however, it has very high requirements such as the song of the elves master-level quest, 85 thieving, and 97 herblore to increase profits.

To stop failing this method, you need to have completed Ardougne Hard Diaries which increases your success rate by 10%, and you need to wear the thieving skillcape which adds the same effect. The 20% success rate increase, combined with 99 thieving means you will no longer fail.

Players with these very high requirements, can spam-click their way to 3M per hour, pretty neat, right?

If you’re interested in this money-making method but you’re not quite there yet, check out our thieving guide for some other moneymaking and fast leveling methods.
