Old, uncommon, or outdated training methods

The Catherby yew spot.

Picking flax.

Fishing lobsters on karamja, cooking them and then going and training at the lesser demons in the volcano.

Having the idea of buying logs in bulk then running them to the sawmill operator and selling the planks the day after construction was released. That was how I made my first mill for a d med, obby cape and obby shield, which was quite respectable gear at the time :P

1. Powertraining RC till lvl 40 using Rings of Duelling, making Fire Runes.

2. Then making nats with 1 Nature talisman in your inventory, ~25K gp, 1 Antipoison, 1K noted Rune essence, spot left open for Nature runes and runing back-and-forth to the general store to sell and rebuy your rune essence. This was before the update that gave you Tiaras, the Rune/Pure essence split and before the abyss. The antipoison was for rogue bushmen inflicting you with that heavy poison.

 

3. Training on Fire Giants because they had a good chance of dropping a shielf left half.

A few things in order as best I can remember:

Killed cows at the crafting guild, cooking the beef on the spot. The friend who got me into RS laughed at that when I told him the next day at school.

Pretty sure I stole silk at ardy and sold it to that alkharid kid to save up for a rune chain. Eventually I graduated to white wolf furs. When I finally had enough money I bought a Dmace instead, then found out I couldn't actually use it... Wish I could remember what year that was.

Farming HAM (or alkharid guards before that) for clues was pretty fun, although people might actually still do that.

Used to cannon wallasalkies at waterbirth for the bone pieces, actually made my first few millions doing that. I really wish I could find another similar niche moneymaking venture.

At some point (pre GE at least) I was making up to a few mil an hour from gnome scarves. It's really hard to remember the details but I think green hweens were like 17-20m with blues near that which was what I ended up spending that money on.

Many cows died for the honor and glory of my 50 ATK in RSC.

 

Training Crafting before the GE was rough stuff. Oh, hah, cows died for that too. *hurriedly types in 'there is no cow level', presses enter, hopes not to die a slow and painful death via cow udder*

 

I was never very good at Mining, either. I don't think I ever settled on a place to power-mine until I could access the Guild. I also just mined and banked every rock in the joint because, hey, I could use the clay for Crafting! (This is after I found out I could craft things other than leather and thus reduced my cow massacre rate by about 25%.)

I got my first 100k from going to the duke of Lumbridge and asking for an anti-dragon fire shield, then dropping it and repeating. Got 100 of them, then spent the weekend in World 1 typing "Selling anti drags 1k each" over and over again. That was great. When I did it, I remember a couple of people offering me 20k and then a couple hundred thousand gold. I couldn't figure out why the heck anyone would need that many anti-dragon fire shields. I'm pretty sure that I met a couple of noob helpers that day. It's actually pretty awesome to look back on.

 

Then another kid at the library convinced me to buy a full rune set with that money, even though I had sworn I would never drop below 100k again. I kept that rune set for a long time.

Ah yes, the days when full rune was awesome... only on f2p of course, but still...

 

Wonder what f2p is like now. Want to say it's bad and crappy compared to the past, I haven't gone on f2p in ages and I can't tell how big my nostalgia glasses are.

 

Also, the days when you could keep private on and not get spammed by gold sellers? Walk around and not see gold selling bots?

 

I remember when tiaras came out. Got 22 crafting, made a bunch of them. People would pay a fair amount of money for that new item. Got my first rune set that way.

 

Shit, you could make a topic "First Rune Set."

Initially I started Runescape and was hired by a member to grab zammy wines, and resell to them. Once I built a cashpile I began to buy essence off F2P players, and resell it to members (this made me 10's of millions back in 2006). I simply then worked up to merchanting rares and massive big bone/yew log stacks in F2P.

 

In terms of training (I was a 1 def mage at the time), I would buy bars, smith them into platebodies, and then proceed to alch the platebodies.

 

I also took under tasks such as self-gathering 1k+ stacks of each log, ore, fish, etc.

 

Another interesting one was mining enough coal to buy a santa from purely coal when they were 20M (even though I could have bought multiples with cash).

 

Nowadays I rarely train, but when I did train mining, from 80 onwards I've only trained it via star mining (sandstone was also included upon its release).

 

Nothing else really comes to mind, though if I could access some of my old screenshots, I'm sure my memory could be jogged. Nice thread.

My day consisted of: mine iron ore in varrock, home tele to lumby to smith, walk to varrock anvil, sell at general store, repeat the process.

 

I wasn't very smart.

 

Oh boy, i did exactly the same thing.

 

For me it would be powerfishing in Lumbridge. You catch your fish in the river, got to gen store, cook them there and sell. I even made a guide.

I remember when you had to find someone with 80 Crafting to make a Glory...

 

I remember when assisting wasn't really a big deal.

 

I remember when W2 was the place to trade. DDS was 60k, Rune was 200k, Dragon Scimitar was 100k..

 

I remember the Durial incident.

 

I remember how shit the economy went after Construction was released due to the money sink.

 

I remember when the King Black Dragon actually took effort to kill.

 

I remember slaying with a Black Mask.

 

I remember when Monkfish was the way to level.

 

I remember the first Mining animation before it got updated.

 

The list goes on...

Buy essence at Varrock East, spend a few hours making Airs at W16 airs, spend the next week selling those airs at Varrock West.

 

I can't believe I had the patience to spend a week, at 10+ hours a day, just spamming "selling airs 14 gp." The GE was the greatest thing ever.

I remember when power cutting Willows for Woodcutting was the way to go, and cutting Yews were a source of good income.

 

I remember when bots weren't such a hassle to the community.

 

I remember when Mage Bank pk'ing was the most intense thing ever..and running from the lever to the Mage Bank was a badass feat.

 

I remember when I was training at the Dagannoths in the Lighthouse with Rune, Dragon Scimitar, and Guthans to heal.

 

I remember the first bonus weekend and how many people "cheated" Summoning and got 99..meanwhile I got it without that.

 

I remember Slayer before Piety/Turmoil/Extremes/Chaotics.

 

I remember the Slayer Tower being the best place to Slay, and not Kuradel or the Tunnels.

 

I remember when they released the Dragon Defender.

 

I remember when Barrows Gloves were released, and noone really knew how good they were.

 

I remember thinking 53 Thieving for Desert Treasure was the hardest level ever..until I discovered other skills.
