What Level Does ZMI start to profit?

Recommended Posts

I am 51 and want to train to 70 for CSB. How much will I lose to 70?

Really? Cause as I recall it was you who was the one cussing me at base. Also, re-read what you just said: one 15 second delay (which is an exaggeration to begin with) ruins floor times? You are beyond ridiculous.

If you mine all the essence then you won't lose any gp and will profit by selling the runes.

Balth is correct, personally I didn't bother buying a dragon pickaxe to mine the essence because there was a slight chance that I might lose some cash on the dragon pickaxe.

The fastest and cheapest way to mine the ess would be utilizing the varrock east bank.

For max profit don't use teleports.

The banker is also expensive, nearest free bank is ardougne I think

If you bring a magpie with you instead of an abyssal familiar, it will pay for itself and then some with gems (including diamonds!!)

 

Also, use home teleport on Lunars to bank and then teleport back to Ourania to save runes.

 

Hope this helps!

Well I don't know what runes get made so to be on the safe side we'd have to assume you're just making airs. Using the double experience from zmi and the tip it calculator that comes out at 61,911.5 essence.

Tui's right about the banker. Odds of you making 20+ of one type of rune in a run are low; you may wish to consider using Castle Wars or Edgeville to bank.

Tbh, I would probably mine like 100k pure essence to be safe as the ZMI is entirely random. Make sure to wear weight reducing gear such as agile clothing, boots of lightness and penance gloves.

Don't forget to never repair your pouches until they're COMPLETELY broken.

 

It wastes time because you have to NPC contact, which takes aaages.

Enchanting the rings that a Magpie finds would help reduce the cost of the Castle Wars rings.

 

 

 

ZMI becomes profittable based on decisions made by the player, it isn't only a specific level that makes it profitable.

It saves more money to run through the abyss to repair the pouches- NPC contact consumes runes. You can even bring essence and do a run to the nature or law altar for more profit while you repair the pouches! Then just home teleport and you're ready to go.

You should also spend a few hours gathering spices to boost your RC lvl before going there, so that your RC lvl can be higher than normal, and thus you get more profits from doing each run.

 

Or if you don't want the chance of getting your RC lvl lowered from the spices, then I would go to Dorgesh Kahn or w/e that town is (in Lumby sewers) and get the +2 RC boost from the scientist. I personally did that from 54-77 RC, so I know what I'm talking about. It made me loads of money.

Not if you get pked. Just don't use pouches.

If you use a glory to teleport to Al Kharid every time your magpie runs out, you can smith your own gold ring for a new one and save a few GP that way too.

 

Just only make one ring at a time, and make a new one every time your magpie dies.

I see a lot of people recommending to use magpies, but what they aren't realizing is that it costs money to obtain the magpie, thus actually making it very difficult to obtain. I stayed away from magpies because of the initial cost.

 

Edit: Chicken already commented on the matter, oh well. Glad someone else shares the opinion

I think there's gold ore at the al kharid mine too, so you could grab the ore you need for the ring there and then smith/smelt.

Not to mention that the scorpions at the mine could drop you a green charm.

Oh, and don't forget that you can use your weekly penguin points on RC to speed things up. Tears of Guthix and Troll Invasion may be of use to you, as well.

Eh, penguin points are nice but I always select "Show me the money!" because it would be more profitable.

Hmm, mining the ess will be a hassle. Thanks for the advice guys. I'm not sure if I wanna mine 100k P Ess..

EDIT: Also, about my posts earlier, I apologize. I have been easily angered these last few days so I am sorry. From the bottom of my heart I am. I know this will not get me back into DGS, but I thought I'd just put it out there.
