IMHO, you will never make a decent amount of cash on F2P. There are ways of doing it, but it's so much easier on P2P!



You can carry on toiling on F2P, but you're only losing time to P2Pers, which actually puts you in a worse position.

You could always buy Coal for 200gp each and Iron Ore 100gp each and smith them into Steel Bars. Then just sell the Steel Bars for 600-650ea and you'll make a decent profit.



It's not entirely fast, but you take money where you can get it in F2P.

well that depends on your definition on decent, I made plenty of cash on F2P, and mostly through buying raw sharks and cooking them, and then reselling. I had over 6-7 mil worth on F2P.

deathmonark, try crafting gold-based items and silver-based items. Money is to be found there. :<img src=:' />

Not possible. However, they may have been talking about lobsters or swordfish.

There was a good guide for F2P money making in Player Made Guides a while back, but I believe buying Eyes of Newt from Port Sarim magic shop (under 10 each) and then selling for 100-200 each (not sure on the current market price) is one of the best ways to obtain decent wealth in F2P.

Only if you can find members who are willing to buy for their potion-making, or people who are suckers while trying to do the "Witch's Potion" F2P quest. Otherwise, you're really out of luck.

It took me a whole year to get 1mill on F2P, and from then on I managed to turn that 1mill to 5mill in just 3 weeks, all in F2P.

Just keep skilling your way towards that first mill, then merchant your cabbage off from then on.

Pretty much what Dragon said.

As easy as you make it sound, merchanting in F2P isn't exactly a cakewalk (at least in my experience). As soon as someone announces an excellent item to merchant in F2P, word spreads and that item soon becomes one of the worst things to merchant.



I've tried by hand at merchanting and although it does result in profit, I'd never be able to merchant millions in just a week or so. Not my cup of tea (and I know for a fact other players have trouble with it).

I know what you mean. Only way to really get a profit is to mine it all yourself. You get exp for your time spent and money for your mined goods, and don't spend any money in the first place.

I suggest mining coal and iron. I am a newbie member and I used to mine coal and sell it. Alot harder IMO for coal sense its alot of walking back and forth to bank but thats the only real way I could make some decent money. I wouldnt sell for 200 though. I sold for 190 so I was guaranted a sell. Alot of people wanted to buy for less than 200. I made decent money by far wasnt rich
