Why are people on Runescape so poor?
Before I talk about how to get rich on Runescape, it’s first necessary to understand why people are poor. This isn’t page filler, this is important. When overweight people try to lose weight, they don’t just focus on how to lose weight, they have to understand how their actions have placed them in the situation they’re in so that they can better understand how to reverse the problem. The exact true is same of Runescape, and there are reasons why some players are poor and some players are rich.
Let me explain…
The vast majority of players are poor and dissatisfied (I classify poor as 1-30 million gold) because they want to be rich, but focus on the problem of them being poor, as opposed to the solution of becoming wealthy. How many times have you seen someone type “I wish I had an [item]” as opposed to “today I’m going to think of a new way to make gold”. The first person is focusing on what they want; the second person is focusing on the method for getting what they want. The second person is vastly more likely to succeed because he’s identified that there’s something he wants, but instead of sitting around and complaining about it all day he actually needs to do something to get it.
People fall into the ‘same method’ trap where they do the same thing hoping that they’ll ‘get lucky’ and somehow things will change. Guess what, the same method equals the same results.
Becoming rich (100 million plus gold – at least) is about focusing on the solution to becoming rich – forget ‘I must do x y z’ to become rich and start thinking ‘who’s rich and how?’, ‘what do they have that I don’t?’ and ‘what must I do today in order to achieve what I want’.
There are plenty of different ways to reach varying degrees of wealth, and it depends primarily on your intelligence and how much of it you’re willing to put to work. It depends on not just hard work, but making your work, work hard for you. It varies based on your combat level and skill levels as well as your creativity, maturity and social prowess.
Does it involve buying a ‘get rich quick scheme’? No it involves making your own! There is not some magical formulae for making a billion gold every ten minutes, and if you think such methods exist then you do not have the intelligence to understand this website and it would be best for you to leave. If you want to make around 1-20/30 million gold per hour, it is definitely possible – and it will all be explained. But as with all great things, it comes at the cost of you putting in a little effort, doing your homework and reading through and understanding what I’ve got to say. It’s up to you.
Why is this website special..?
The truth is that every single website that I’ve encountered which claims to have gold making knowledge is clearly written by someone who does not know what they’re talking about – or the information posted is incredibly old and common knowledge already. I’m not going to say ‘I’m sorry’ for insulting the ‘competition’ out there, the truth is that all the websites I’ve come across have an outdated and clearly photo-shopped bank picture as ‘evidence‘ to their wealth. Now if you’ve found this website than you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
To create a good and definitive guide to earning gold you have to factor in the massive variety between players in terms of combat/skill levels, intelligence, hard work and how much time they’re willing to commit to get what they want.
To write a good guide I believe that you must first be rich yourself and be able to prove yourself as such. You must be able to create well constructed and easy to navigate websites, as well as writing about admittedly complex topics/ideas/concepts in a way which everyone understands. You need to start from simple ideas and build upon them in a step by step process until people grasp the concepts and realize what is necessary for them to achieve what they want.
Personally I do currently have my own get rich quick scheme which makes me on average around 75-100 million gold per hour when I choose to use it. I used to be doing it all the time, but when you hit a certain point of richness you stop seeing the point. Will I tell you my own secrets? No. I spent time and effort creating them and they’d be destroyed in just a few weeks if everyone knew about them. There are plenty of short cuts – but nothing is that easy.
People say there are no such things as get rich quick schemes – they tend to be poor. The problem with these schemes are that they’re either created to manipulate people who think they’ll make money (in fact the scheme itself is based on misleading and essentially scamming people in the first place – most notably G.E. Merchanting Clans are a good example) or the creators of these schemes do not want to give away the secrets themselves. You have group of people that have been foolish enough to be conned out of gold themselves in some manner, who instantly dismiss schemes as a scam to hide their own intellectual inadequacies – because they’re too stupid to realize that the guy running the show does have one, and profited from them. Then you have the other people who have very complex methods of making money, but don’t tell anyone that isn’t necessary to the plan and so it doesn’t show up on the radar. The same is true of me, and the same is (I’m sure) true of other players – would you give away a creation that took you weeks or months to create for nothing at all – no you would not.
How to create my own Runescape get-rich-quick scheme?
Introduction – why the rich are rich and the poor are poor.
The most obvious point right away that I’ll make is that you need to try; it’s not good enough to want it. Everyone wants something. You need to want it and then act on that want, in a manner which is smart and productive. Effort is key to success, most people think ‘effort’ is grinding away cutting tree or working in an office cubicle. That’s not effort in my opinion, it may be hard work, but it’s mindless indulgence. We’re human beings, we’re smart – use your intelligence in a way that benefits you. Putting in effort in my opinion is not simply about working long hours cutting trees; it’s about using your conscious imagination and critical faculties to create a situation where you are profiting.
Most people don’t do that, most people stick to the same thing – the same method equals the same results. The people who are rich on Runescape are just like the rich in the real world, they don’t sit at home wanting this and that without acting. They focus on what they want, get up and go for it – they use their hard work, their brains and their determination all in unison to create the results they want. Let’s face it, most people just don’t have that drive – but if you don’t have that drive you’ll never get what you want. I’m not just talking about Runescape now, you want a six pack? You want girls? You want money? Then go get it.
The Complex Combination of Methods.
Simple is easy, easy means anyone can do it, if anyone can do it then it has very little or no value. Don’t go for what you know, go for complex, go for unique, a unique selling point – a different angle. Have you seen all the terrible Runescape gold selling guides out there? The sales pages are so bad I don’t even want to imagine what’s in the guide itself. These guides don’t sell at all because even a ten year old can tell that these people don’t have a clue about what they’re talking about. But these same people have just looked at a similar guide selling website, copied it, and hoped for the best. They’re just like the people who are waiting for someone to tell them some magic method for making billions of gold (fools).
How to create your own Runescape get rich quick scheme:
Steal and adapt other people’s ideas – pure creation is difficult for a beginner, why not shorten the race?
Understand your target audience – understand your audience; understand how to profit from them
How to increase your creative input – creativity is not easy, let me show you how to make it easier
Experiment for success – this is why most people will fail
How to protect your idea from others – stop people stealing what you’ve made
Steal other people’s ideas. This may seem contrary to what I’ve said, but hey let me finish. This is what tends to happen. Someone comes up with a good idea and makes a bunch of money, but then he tells his friends who tell their friends and then his technique or method becomes diluted as more and more people jump on the bandwagon. That doesn’t mean there was anything wrong with the original idea. Take that original idea, and change it, apply it to a different situation – mix it with other ideas, experiment, get a few friends involved to pool your knowledge and your minds. There’s no point stealing an idea that’s been done to death. But what if you take a few originally good ideas, give them a new twist, mix them together, adapt them and hey presto; sooner or later you’ve got something new and original.
Understand people; understand the people you’re trying to profit from. If you’re making gold, inevitably it’s almost certainly going to be other players on Runescape you’re earning it from. Psychology is key, and a good example of this would be the money doubling scam that used to be and still is very prevalent on Runescape. I tried this one just for fun to see how stupid some people were (not on Malmortuus). It’s a very basic idea, but the idea is that you initially double people’s money and then they give you more money and when they trust you enough they give you even more money in which case you log of and scam them. The psychology at play here is very basic, but I made around 7 million gold in an hour. The point I’m trying to make is that people were able to profit so easily because they understood a few simple key aspects of people’s thinking. They took advantage of people wanting quick money as well as the trust and surprise when people got back the small amount of money that people inevitably handed over to begin with. Imagine an idea containing 20-30 different psychology concepts and ideas, mixed a long with a variety of other manipulative and deceptive methods and you can easily see how you can make big money by understanding how people think. Know your enemy target audience.
Get your friends involved. Getting people, allies to help you along the way is key in the business world and believe me it’s key in Runescape. We all like to think we’re smart, and we know best and so forth – but we don’t. There have been many times when a friend has built upon an idea of mine only for it to turn out to be more successful than my idea. The same is true vice versa and getting a different perspective, a different opinion, someone to reflect ideas back upon is critical for the creation of something unique – and something unique is almost sure to earn you money. Just make sure they’re people you have absolute trust in – preferably someone you know in real life as opposed to just a friend on the game.
Experiment! There’s a reason why the person who’s going to cure cancer did it by carrying out a ton of experiments. There’s only so much research, reading and theory you can look into before you need to put the books down, and actually go and try it. You should constantly be thinking of new ideas, and trying them. Are you going to fail a lot? You sure are, but when you hit across that idea, that no one else knows about but you – and you start raking in millions of Runescape gold then you know it’ll have been worth it. Experimenting, trying out new ideas is fun – and if you’re not finding it fun, then make it fun. When people start out a business they don’t know if it’ll succeed or fail, they can look into the logic and the logistics but ultimately there’s a ‘plunge’ moment where you’ve just got to go for it. Succeeding or failing is irrelevant, trying is what matters. Well that’s not totally true, succeeding is preferable of course, but considering that so many people don’t even try it’s a good place to start.
Be sneaky. You can, and I do, apply a lot of real world activities back to this virtual world that I’m talking about. The big money is in luring, staking, pking and mechanting. Don’t even bother with skilling to make money. People (including myself) write pages and pages of how to make money skilling, but it’s purely a page filler. You want big money? Put down the bloody axe and take a step away from that yew tree.
Make sure that your creation is (if possible) non-discernible, or difficult to comprehend at worst. If you’ve got a great idea then you obviously don’t want people catching on. I would hate to be the guy that started money doubling because half of Runescape has done it by now. When you create your first little scheme you need to make sure that whoever you’re profiting from can’t just steal your idea. If it involves direct contact then purposefully make it difficult just to confuse people about what it is that you’re actually doing. Remember that people don’t tend to bother trying things themselves, only if someone was absolutely sure they knew what you were doing would they then go out of their way to try it themselves. Create doubt in their mind as to what it is you’re doing, or what it is that you’ve just done and they’re much less likely to try and copy it. The best thing however, is for your little scam money making scheme to not be open to direct extrospection.
A lot to get your head round? Go right ahead and visit the six core methods for earning gold on Runescape for some more conventional money making methods.
So… what are you waiting for?
You didn’t think I was gonna give away my little scam method did you? Nope, figure something out yourself. If I were to tell people this idea, it wouldn’t work in a week anyway – so create something unique, don’t tell anyone, make billions of Runescape gold – and laugh at the people you see cutting away at those good old yew trees and Edgeville.
Hopefully you read the above tips on how to make the real money, but for those who haven’t and want to do the more basic methods of making money one thing I’ll talk about briefly is the limitations of opting to a skill only route of making money.
The Six Methods for Success
If you want to make it big on Runescape then PKing, Scamming and Staking are your main options, followed by Monster Killing but you have to be a very high level able to join and kill Nex!
Just quickly, I want to write a little about skilling; it’s a terrible way of making gold on Runescape. I hate to break it to you if all you do is skill (not really I enjoy it), but skilling is only good for the self satisfaction of leveling up. There are long term benefits which can make skilling an attractive option because it definitely opens up different methods of making money – but the reality is that overall it’s vastly inferior to other methods of making money.
Staking - In production
Merchanting - In production
In my opinion those are the six methods of earning money on Runescape, and I would also place them in that order by the highest earning. You may be sat there thinking that staking should be on the top of that list. It isn’t, it really isn’t – staking is essentially gambling where you can slightly skew the chances of winning in your favor. I’ll talk much more about each topic later in much greater detail, and I’ll go over why staking isn’t all it’s hyped up to be (and if you don’t think I know about staking just take a look at my youtube for a 2Bil + staking video – and those are just what I bothered videoing).
One thing you’ve got to be aware of is that the methods I’m going to go into will probably not make you gold right away (if you want to make the real money) because a lot of the methods require some combat level or skill requirements. If you’re looking for an instant quick fix you might as well leave right now, because nothing is that easy. On the other hand if you’re willing to train your skills a little bit (although not necessarily if you have reasonable levels) you can make money.
Why is training important to making gold on Runescape?
Here’s the truth guys. At lower combat and skill levels I personally wouldn’t even bother trying to earn gold – at all. Why? I’m a very logical person, and for me the purpose of earning money is to do it as quick as possible in the shortest amount of time. This may seem contradictory to the ‘not bothering to earn gp at a low level’ statement, but ultimately the amount of gold you earn at really low levels (below level 60 combat) is so small that it would be considerably quicker to train up to the requirements of one of the most basic money making methods I’m going to talk about – as opposed to using my really noob basic gold producing options.
‘You will make more gold and quicker if you train up to 60-100 combat than you ever could below level 60.’
Well, I’ve told you guys, it’s the quickest and most logically coherent thing to do – it’s up to you whether you want to follow my advice or keep on toiling away.
PKing Money Making – (Introduction)
PKing is one of the areas of money making where the gold is at – and where people are earning, others are losing. If you follow what I tell you, you will be the one earning as other people are losing out (perfect!). I will not give a long introduction to this topic, in my opinion it is very straight forward:
Making gold Pking is the method by which your account earns gold by using a combination of its combat levels, experience and fighting tactics in unison with a good computer and fast internet connection to kill specific opponent types in order to gain what they lose.
To become a successful PKer you have to make four decisions – what sort of a Pking account you wish to use, which area you want to fight in, what fighting style you wish to employ and finally how much you want to risk.
A quick example for my typical Pking, would be ‘Main account’ in ‘Edgeville’ fighting style ‘melee’ and risking ‘Dharoks’.
But it could be a ‘Pure account’ at ‘East Dragons’ fighting in ‘hybrid’ and risking ‘ancient staff, dragon bolts (e), amulet of glory, Dragon scimitar’.
This is a good way to break down Pking because it simplifies what is a large and complex topic and allows people to focus on what they have and what they want. To allow for simple navigation as well as evaluation of the accounts, area, fighting style and risk I’ve created this section for ease-of-use.
The layout is very simple. You first identify which account type applies to you, or train up to which you want to become. Then you can look through the different fighting styles and where these fights usually take place. From here you can look at which gear is best and explanations as to why this is the case, and finally (and most importantly) each account/area/fighting style/gear risk has a corresponding PK Guide section where I outline the techniques involved to win the vast majority of fights within the specific section you’ve selected.
Go ahead and visit the Pking to section to look over a great guide on everything you need to know about PKing start at the four different and widely used account types. Then you can check out the different pking areas section to look over the four main different combat zones. Just remember that although these don’t cover all accounts/areas they cover the vast majority of different situations – but more importantly they are the best for earning a profit from Pking, I include only the best methods for earning gold. You will get all the information you need to make an informed decision and become a professional PKer.
Scamming on Runescape
Scamming on Runescape is an incredible way to earn gold, but I don’t endorse it and it is against the game’s rules. However I don’t think it would be right to create an entire website talking about how to make money on Runescape and leave out aspects of the game which create the most money even if they are morally bankrupt methods.
I’ve created an entire page devoted to Scamming on Runescape because it’s a vast topic and it applies a lot of different theories.
For an in-depth look at scamming visit Scams for Runescape, or for a much more non-specific general oversight read below.
Scamming is tricking someone out of something for your personal gain. So this may be tricking someone out of their account, out of gold coins or out of items. You could gain hold of their account by tricking them into giving you their password. Or you could trick them out of gold by doing the money doubling scam, you could trick them out of their items by quickly changing the amount of gold you’re going to trade them for an item and giving them 10% of its value.
There are lots of ways to scam people, but there are a few things you need before you start. The first thing is that you need to be pretty heartless, you can develop this because the more people you scam the easier it gets. You need to be able to emotionally distance yourself from the people you’re scamming and this can be pretty difficult for some people; especially if you’re getting to know them as ‘friends’ over a long period of time.
Usually having some starting gold is quite important, a few 100k to a few million gold is required at the absolute minimum – but the more gold you have, the more authority you have to other players and it’s far easier to scam people when you’re richer than them because they think to themselves ‘he’s so rich he wouldn’t both with me’.
Actually I really good example of this is the basic money doubling scam; it’s usually done by players with a few hundred million to a billion gold. Once however someone tried money double scamming me and he actually showed me 24billion gold. I ended up playing a long with him and earning about 50 million gold, but if this guy is tricking other billionaires doing the exact same scam but with the ultra rich then I can imagine he’s raking in the cash. I handed him over 50 million gold just to test out what he was doing, he doubled that and then offered to double a few of my mask sets. Needless to say I fled.
But go ahead and learn about scamming and how to protect yourself on my Runescape Scamming page.
Merchanting is not the best type of gold earning activity you can do, however if you want to earn gold while only putting in the tiniest amount of effort it is certainly the best. If you want to use your energy, focus and intelligence then I suggest Pking, Staking or Scamming is more your category. If on the other hand you want to relax, chill out, listen to music, chat with friends and log in to check your trades every 30 minutes then I would definitely say this is for you.
On an effort to money ratio, Merchanting is by far the best method for earning gold on Runescape. Check out my complete Runescape Merchanting guide for an explanation of Item Flipping, Short Term Merchanting and Long Term Merchanting.
My main merchanting pages explains what exactly they are, how to pick the correct item for each type of merchant, when G.E graphs are useful and when they are not, which is the most profitable and which is the best for you depending on how attentive you want to be, how patient you are and finally how much gold you want to invest.
Earning gold on Runescape can be easy and it can be relaxing and Merchanting is one of the few methods which allow a decent profit margin with a comparatively small input of effort. Unfortunately the truth is that learning how to Merchant isn’t easy, and a lot of people think that a lot of it is ‘luck’. Well guess what they’re the people who are losing their cash to people like me, it involves an element of luck just as Pking, Staking or Monster Killing do. But just like Pking where you can create artificial kill situations, or just like Staking where you can learn inherent tricks within the coding of Runescape to get in the first hit or just like weaing a ring of wealth when Monster Killing or picking the right monsters to kill you can skew the luck in your favour.
I actually lost around 50 million gold learning how to merchant but it was necessary for me to learn it properly and quickly. I wrote down rules corresponding to specific items as well as revealing how there are no set items to merchant but explained my rotating item list system where you can constantly be merchanting the best items while leaving non profitable items for awhile to become profitable once more.
If you want the real big money then I admit earning billions of gold merchanting will be difficult for you, on the other hand if you want to earn 5-20 million gold per day under non stressful conditions then I realize it’s not as incredible as earning 20 million gold an hour Dharok Pking but I still think considering the minimal input of effort and time it’s a good deal.
If you think so to then I have completed my Runescape Merchanting page, complete with screenshots of my own merchants as well as G.E graphs explained. Check it out if you want to learn how to Merchant properly. I’ve put in the hard work so you don’t have to, please bare that in mind.
Monster killing to earn money is the killing of specific Runescape monster(s) whereby you earn gold from the item(s)/coins which they drop. This activity can be done on Runescape with varying degrees of success and it’s based on several different factors.
Monster Killing Money Making Main Page
The problem with other monster killing guides is they’re very limited in who the guide actually applies to. Some people have too high combat levels or are too low; I see plenty of guides which would be great for a level 20 but wouldn’t apply to most people. Oppositely there are plenty of high level monster killing guides but most people are in between high and low combat levels.
I’ve decided to tackle this by creating a monster killing directory where there’s a list of different combat level ranges going from level 20 to 138. Each list links to the section of monster killing activities that are associated with the range of combat levels which can actually kill the monsters in a way which is profitable. What’s more is that when you select your range of combat levels, let’s say 20-30, you go to a section where you can read brief summaries on each of the different types of monster killing that you can achieve at your level. You learn how much gold you can earn per hour, if there are any extra requirements. From this you can quickly skim read through just a few sentences and quickly find out what you can do at your combat level, how much gold it earns and figure out if it’s right for you.
Go ahead and visit my Monster Killing guide if you think this is for you.
Four Monster Killing Requirements
To kill various monsters you need certain requirements depending on the type of monster. You may need certain armour, weapons, combat levels, skill levels, quests completed or to be in a team.
Below are the four main requirements for killing the vast majority of monsters on Runescape. Some specific, usually very high level monsters have very specific requirements – but for the vast majority of monsters these four aspects are by far the most important for killing almost all the monsters in the game.
This is important because of the increased life point amount, as well as increased constitution regeneration (you gain life points at a quicker rate at higher constitution levels). With a higher strength level your max hit will be higher (increasing your average amount of damage dealt against the same duration of time). An increased attack level means that you have a greater chance of hitting, and a greater chance of hitting higher. An increased defence level means you are less likely to be hit, and more likely to be hit for less when you are hit. Also the higher your combat level the more creatures are non-aggressive towards you. If you want to kill certain monsters it can be annoying for your food to be drained just on getting there by lower level monsters.
Greater combat experience (not related to combat levels, purely related to how much you’ve actually fought other players/monsters) is necessary for killing monsters in an efficient manner. An understanding of the combat triangle, what armor to wear against what type of monster, what prayer to use, what weapon to use depending on who/what you’re fighting. Quick reaction times in order to take advantage of a ‘kill opportunity’ as well as being able to save yourself when the monster/opponent gets an opportunity of their own to kill you. Understanding how much food to bring, what type of food to bring and whether potions are necessary as well as the proportions and quantities of each. Knowing when to drink a potion, when to eat, when to rocktail-brew (if this applies). Generally knowing a large amount of tips and tricks when it comes down to combat, visit Pking Tips (many are applicable to fighting monsters) for a more in-depth look at this topic.
Quality of Gear
You need to have the appropriate gear based on the situation. This is determined by what you’re fighting, and it’s not always as easy as picking the correct response from within the combat triangle, in many instances you need to pick a compromise position based on the bonuses you receive to attack and inflict more damage while picking specific equipment designed to minimize the damage being dealt to you.
Having gear with high defensive bonuses when you’re fighting melee based monsters means you’re less likely to be dealt damage. This has several knock on effects, the first and most obvious is that you save food. Secondly this means you can stay longer and kill more creatures earning you more gold. It also means that you aren’t wasting time travelling to the bank to get more food; you’re spending your time fighting monsters as opposed to running around all over Runescape.
Obviously this doesn’t just apply to saving yourself from being damage, it also means that if you’ve got a better weapon you can kill more monsters, hence take less damage and earning more gold quicker. The better gear you have the more gold you’re going to earn, long term and short term so it’s quite important to get the best gear you can as soon as you can. You don’t want anything slowing down how much gold you can be earning, and if you’ve got gold just sitting in the bank doing nothing why not invest it so you make far more long term?
People seem to not want to spend money on items and armour especially Barrow’s armour because it degrades but in my opinion you’ll save much more on food then you will by having to repair it – the costs to repair it are very cheap anyway. Just remember that you’ll also train faster which results in gaining combat levels faster which benefits you long term as well.
Skill levels are probably the least important requirement for killing monsters, but nevertheless they are useful in several instances. To complete some quests to wield the best items there are inevitably skill requirements. To be able to gain and wield the best weapons such as Chaotic weapons you definitely need skill levels or you can’t gain Dungeoneering levels quickly enough.
Many of the high level monsters require certain skill requirements in order to just enter where they let alone kill them. You can’t just go and kill Tormented Demons for their Dragon Claws for example, you need to complete While Guthix Sleeps and this has certain skill levels which you must have. The same is true of basic Green Dragons Money Making where you need an anti-dragon shield and for that you need to have completed Dragon Slayer and for that you need skill requirements; albeit basic ones.
The Rewards of Monster Killing
People sometimes ask me to rank where Monster Killing is in terms of the ‘big six’ methods of earning gold. Well in my honest opinion if you mastered each of the six methods, it would definitely be beneath Pking, Scamming, Staking and Merchanting but above Skilling.
This may make it seem like a bad choice, but in reality it’s the best choice for most people in the game. Mastering Pking and Staking for example take accounts with perfect combat levels, and a very advanced understanding of the fighting mechanics of the game. On the other hand pretty much anyone can gain a few combat levels and go kill some monsters; it’s much easier to do for people who don’t take the game as seriously as the hardcore stakers/pkers/scammers who are doing what they do every day for hours and hours.
A good PKer can earn perhaps 200 million gold a day, a good staker could earn much more and a good scammer could earn perhaps a billion gold. But in these three instances we’re talking about literally the best of the best. All of those three things take an immense amount of patience, skill, intelligence and hard work. Or you can just throw on some armour and go to the God Wars dungeon.
Inventing your own scam, spending hours learning different Pking techniques and learning the tiny staking tricks all take a lot of time, effort and active thinking. Monster Killing is so much easier and hence for most people it’s the preferable option.
Unfortunately at the moment I am not supporting skilling.
Out of the 6 big methods for making money skilling is by far the worse, and when you consider the amount of bots that are around today the prices of skilling related items is so low it’s not worth writing about.
