I used to make money with runecrafting, resulting in 1m/h. This was years ago. I have currently 93 runecrafting, is it still useful for earning money? What other methods are good for earning money?

To name a few popular methods found around these forums:

Staking
PVM, godwars/nex/gano beasts
Slayer
Farming herbs/dailies/MTK
Flipping items in the GE

To be quite honest, your best bet is to try a few things and see what you can achieve without getting bored.

Good luck!

rocktails might be pretty good money now that they are the best source of healing, not sure though

Thanks for the answers! What farming level would I need to earn decent money with it?

And runecrafting is not really good for earning money as I understand?

farming has taken a huge hit since EOC, snaps and torstol are at their lowest prices in years, so the profit % might be good, but the overall profit is down a lot right now

Yeah, it's easy to make money on herbs but it's tantamount to "welfare" now because the profits themselves are just so little and therefore it's a bit slow now. I used to be able to make 1m a day on herbs, now it's closer to 600K. Farming level is irrespective of profit earned, so long as you can plant the seed, because farming level doesn't affect the number of herbs gained per patch.

The main advantage though is that it's 600K gained for doing about 25 minutes work a day, which in addition to other dailies and MTK, does add up.

Seeds are way down too, you can still make ~200k/run easily, up to 300k with higher tier greenfingers etc.. But it's definitely unstable.

Kiln runs are an easy 5m/hr, though they apparently made caves harder, so I haven't had time to see if they made the kiln harder too. Price of onyx is dropping, though.
