So, I am currently back to p2p, but I only have about 800k cash. I have a dragon scimitar (lame i know), firecape, torso, and rune defender. (Melee) And I have full black d'hide, a rune c'bow, and 2k mith bolts. (Range) I was wondering if there was any decent money making methods (through PVM) that I could use to get money? Making magic longs take forever because the magic logs are impossible to get.

First, go upgrade your rune defender to dragon. Then, kill green dragons. Actually you don't need the defender for that, unless you have superantifire potions, but it's a good item to have.

Greens with no BoB are around 1 mil an hour if you have a good server with good bots, you only need to hit 385 damage to get the kill, less if there is more than one bot on the dragon. With a BoB this can jump up to around 1.5 mil an hour.

Take a stack of house tabs, 2 sharks, and a dose of super antifire if you're using a setup with no dfs/anti-dragon shield. Drink a dose of super att and super str at edgeville bank and run to the. CT entrance just north of varrock. Run south to that portal and take a dose of your. Super antifire.
Kill dragons.
????
Profit!

One dose of super antifire should last a whole inventory and terrorbird/war tort. Have your highest lvl str and attack prayers/piety/turmoil on the whole time, recharge prayer in your house and tele to edgeville via mounted glory. Wash rinse repeat

Did you even read the first post? He has a d scim and 800 k. TDs are not an option he can consider at this point.

at your state, u need to make at least 5mil with skills.
Woodcutting is a good one, your gaurrenteed to make a good sum of cash pretty fast, and the whoel reason u skill for 5m is not having to invest in anythign except maybe some dragon tools such as axe and pick.
Mining, woodcutting, fletching, or just pickiing flax is pretty good.

Pretty sure green drags are way better, but...to each his own :S

He only has 59 herblore?

Use regular antifires and an anti-dragon shield with a terrorbird. Rune armor should suffice, mebbe get one peice of cheap barrows if you want to be extra safe.

Even with just a D scim, its still a very fast money maker? Worst case scenario, he could buy 1 invo's worth of food at a time, and I'm sure it would still be a lot faster.

He/she doesn't have the agility to use the shortcut for blues, nor the dg for the resource dungeon. Blues are garbage money.

Greens are extremely safe, and he/she will still make more money at greens (with d scim) than he/she would skilling.

Very simply put one green dragon kill is worth ~5k for a bone and a hide? Which means that if you take a dds, walk into the wilderness, spec out one dragon, take the bone+hide, die, respawn&bank at Soul Wars, and then walk back, you'll make more money than cutting yew or magic logs or picking flax.

Woodcutting is a good really bad one, your gaurrenteed to make a good extremely small sum of cash pretty fast slowly, and the whoel reason u skill for 5m is not having to invest in anythign except maybe some dragon tools such as axe and pick when you don't know any better or like slow methods of obtaining cash
Mining, woodcutting, fletching, or just pickiing flax is pretty good are all terrible ways of making money.


Fixed that for ya! ;)

Magics are underrated for moneymaking. Go to the Gnome stronghold and cut magics/yews, it's not too hard to find an empty server, and you don't have to worry about being pk'd.

If you do go the Green Dragon route, it may be worth getting a Brackish Blade for the stab bonus, but I'm not sure how much faster it will kill.

So many things to fix today...

They are that bad for money. Killing level three men in edgville is more $/hr than magics or yews.

I guess you're right. Instead we should suggest methods that involve prayers that the asker can't use.

I've been doing Bork almost daily for a couple of months now.
I've honestly seen about 10 people total in the WHOLE time I've ran from edge to the CT to get to bork.
Unless your computer shuts down as you're running to the CT - you'll be fine (you'll be fine even if it does shut down)

Green Dragons are amazing money - and have almost no requirements. Using only the normal anti dragon fire shield - you're pretty much set.
Keep in mind that the OP does have a fire cape + a fighter's torso which would only speed up tasks.

-TO OP, don't listen to these guys who are saying to WC for money.
I'd be super surprised if WC = 100k an hour. Even if it is, CT green dragons is over 10 times faster.

I think the decision is obvious, clicking trees for 10 hours or running into the wildy a bit for 1 hour.
