As my original money making method(superglass make) doesn't work anymore, now I think rc is my another choice.

I want to get 91rc, how should I train?

1. double astral (any1 know how many astrals can I craft /h?
2. nat (is it often to craft 2x now? the what's the xp rate)
3. zmi (I know it may be the best, but I want cash now, and what's its xp rate)

For cash, don't do ZMI.

As for natures/astrals, I don't know the rate of additional runes.

I craft double cosmics ad I need them for enchanting purposes (battle staves) but you might be better off doing natures.

Natures means faster trips thus more chance for multiple natures per essence. In my logical reasoning, it would be faster money, but I have no calculations on that.

1. Depending on your speed - you can do about 45-60 trips of astral running in 1 hour. For me, i get about 55 - with 92 runes per trip - so about 5k astrals. (when im not distracted - and with 2x astrals)

2. Natures are good for money, but because of the new update im not 100% sure if astrals are still better. My friend with 87 rcing told me that 20 ess got him 30 nats - however I dont know if that was a 1 time thing, or a constant amount of extra runes. - Graahking its possible to do 2k -2.5k ess per graahk - depending on how fast you rc/bank.

3. ZMI is definatly not good for cash, it is only good if you're interested in speed. For me its about 900xp-1.2k xp per trip - depending on if i use a familiar or not. While there isnt a great profit however, there is a partial profit. I do get about 6-13k gp profit per invantory. However that would change due to your runecrafting level - the higher the level the more higher level runes you will craft.

Hope this helps. ^^
Happy Runecrafting. =]

How about, "Thanks for all that information, would you be able to give me a rough indication of xp/h?"

It varies depending on your level and how quickly you can craft/bank.

According to my experience, as well as several others, double astrals are still better than the 1.5 or so nats/ess you get doing those at the same level. Bear in mind that as your RC level gets higher, you are making MORE than 2 astrals / ess, which makes up for the gap.

At about 20k exp / hour, astrals are clearly the best money, but at somewhere between 35-40k exp / hour, ZMI is CLEARLY much, much faster. If you've done the Ardy diaries, you also get better runes and bonus runes while using the ZMI altar. While the rising cost of essence hurts its profitability, I'd strongly recommend at least mixing in some ZMI, if not substituting astrals for ZMI altogether.

thank you, I will get more than 2x astral now? Can this apply to double nat also? Mind explain a bit to me?

I just tested that I can get around 600k profit/h crafting the new 1.5 nat, can I get more than this by double astral?

Im gonna have to say that Im almost 100% positive you will NOT get more than 2 astrals per ess. I made 3k astrals two days ago and didnt get more than 2 astrals per essence. You only get the chance for more runes/ess if you have a runecrafting level BETWEEN two levels where the amount of runes/ess changes.
