My main money makers include:







Staff crafting and high alching



Shade Tomb Raiding







The rest of my money comes from lucky drops or trades. The problem with my current money makers is that I need capital to generate more money :(

I kill blue dragons :D That's solely how I make my cash (well, clues too, but since they come from blue drags anyway :/), I sell the d hides and the d bones. I make a few hundred thousand per hours =) Of course, I sometimes end up toasted and lose my ranger boots, but I overall made millions of gp, and I got 96 ranged partly due to that :P

monster drops. (every time I train, I make more from drops than any expenses used up - be it in range or melee and sometimes even by mage)



herblore to some extent.







I am self sufficient in most other things so expenses are minimal. recently started spending on crystal bows to speed up my expenses. If I ever need to raise more cash I'll just fletch and alch a few mage longs.

Green Dragons: 400k an hour (I don't sell the items, but if I did I'd make this)







Using cannon at secret spot: 800k an hour after expenses







Blue Dragon: 200k an hour, granted I use up 90k on crystal bow.







Mining: 40k as hour







Smelting at Blast Furnace with runners: 225k an hour







Runecrafting: 400k an hour doing nats (65 runecrafting)







*EDIT*







Well, since I'm not likely to go back, here's what my secret method was (as it's not likely to be that great now).







I got prayer garbs and range items, 1 cannon, 2500 cb's, 2 Crystal Bows, telegrab runes, Lots of super restores and headed to the 5 wallasaki spot in the Dagganoth cave. I put on mage prayer, set up cannon just in middle of room, and went to town on the wally's.







I stood inside the cannon and only used telegrab to get items. This way, the wally's would not bunch up on one spot, so the cannon hit all 5 as they respawned. Every 10 minutes, I'd switch my bow to the decay, then reset the cannon after the decay occured. Oh yeah, NEVER let your prayer go out, or you will die VERY quickly.







The cannon combined with the crystal bow made for 70k xp an hour in range. I got about 3 full skeletal sets an hour to boot. At the time I did this, I could sell full sets at 400k a piece. I only spend about 400k in cost (pots, crystal bow, cb's).







It's probably not that great a money maker now, but it's still darn good as training. So for all you writing me asking what the method was, there it is.
