Most of my money comes from monster drops. I use alchemy a lot. But I never try to make money, it just adds up over time.

To specifically make cash, I do daily battlestaves and herb runs. I also keep money in my kingdom, with 5 on fish and 10 on maples. I've also taken up item flipping.



The majority of my cash comes from just doing what I do. Right now I've taken mostly a break from rs, logging on to do my dailies if I remember, and the odd slayer task/ skill for half an hour. When I play normally, I just train skills that make me money (Slayer, RC, Hunting, to a lesser degree theiving, Woodcut makes me a bit too) or that are mostly free (Agility, drop mining) while I'm broke, then when I get some money I just dump it into skills that cost. Right now with my break, I've not spent cash, and I'm upto my highest cash pile ever that hasn't just been spent near instantly (almost 40m).

Trade the tokens for pure ess :)



Or if you want to take the time, mine or buy the ess then trade the tokens for law tablets and craft I suppose.

PK'ing, a little from skills but really, mostly PK'ing.

Slayer and farming mostly. Quite a good sum of money comes from Manage Thy Kingdom as well. I do the occasional woodcutting, rcing, hunting, ect. And also I've made about 3M over the last two days in PvP.. and I'm not much of a PKer. ;)


Pirate Rosetta stone. Learn a language while you scape.

Sounds interesting, but these days how many people really speak Pirate?

I make most of my money by fishing sharks, growing herbs but at the moment that's just to keep the price of leveling Herblore down.



I also get the daily battlestaves, pineapples, seaweed and sand from various places.



I also pick up everything i see if it's worth 1gp and up, adds up in the end :lol:

Virtually every coin to my name has come from slayer. I find slayer relaxing and it's just a constant flow of money into my account. Sure, the majority of this money is going to my increasingly large stock of fire runes, rune boot pile, seed stash and gem collection. The majority of my actual money, not wealth, comes from monster hunting, usually Dagannoth kings when I get dagannoth as a task and fancy a small change.

I don't get why you have to capitalize the YOU in the title...



How do I make money?



Virtually every coin to my name has come from wcing. I find wcing relaxing and it's just a constant flow of money into my account. Sure, the majority of this money is going to my increasingly large stock of arrows and smithing supplies. The majority of my actual money, not wealth, comes from monster hunting, usually Hill, Moss, and Ice Giants when I get feel like killing giants as a task and fancy a small change.

I'm gonna be walking down an alley in varrock, and walka is going to walk up to me in a trench coat and say "psst.. hey man, wanna buy some sara brew"

walka92- retired with 99 in attack, strength, defence, health, magic, ranged, prayer and herblore and 137 combat. some day i may return to claim 138 combat, but alas, that time has not yet come

I just slowly let it accumulate. Sometimes I'll try to actually 'make' money with rune mining or small merching. But I prefer to let my total bank worth just go up with time through skilling(almost 500k airs made by me ftw).
EDIT - Signature far exceeds our sig limits but since it's so colourful you can keep it.

Mainly runecrafting but GWD, slayer, and the daily activities realy help. Now though? Merchanting and pvp.
