There are tons of ways to make money in RuneScape, but the vast majority of these methods are dependent on the community.

Many methods almost always require the player to gather one or more of this or that item and sell it to other players. As a result, the player will acquire money from the other player who gives it in return for the item(s).

But let's imagine the following: Jagex has just updated the game; they fully disabled trading, you can no longer trade by any means. You can no longer receive money from other players and you must generate your own money from scratch.

What will be your new main source of income?

You do understand that the question is flawed in that it considers money to be something that is accumulated just for the sake of it? There are DIY-ers in the game, have been almost from the start of it. They don't have huge piles of coins. Even the ones that have nay-on everything and a bank value way beyond the average player. Why? because if you avoid trading, there is very little to do with cash.

Yeah there really isn't much use for money outside of Summoning and Construction.

 

Grotworms or Ascension dungeon for alchs are probably the two major ones.

Since I'd have to boss for all my high-end equipment (if I wanted any), I'd just alch all the rune items/minor drops you get. Other than equipment, I need no money, so nothing would change.

money is used here for the reason money exists: to facilitate trade that doesn't require direct bartering of goods for goods

 

money in of itself does not actually do anything besides the few times you have to pay npcs (or inexplicably, your armor repair stand) to do something because jagex doesn't like inflation

I'd like to believe QBD would still be better. 10% of the drops are already in cash, and most of the raw goods, when processed, also alch for alot. Alot of the rarer drops also alch for a nice amount where as sirenic scales and razorback gaunts don't.

Actually yeah you are probably right. For example the 30 rune ore drops are worth 384K assuming you have the coal to make them into rune platelegs.
