This is the 4th installment in my series of articles on how to make money in Runescape for both Free players and Members. You can find the original here, and the rest of the articles can be found somewhere on this page. This article focuses mainly on money-making methods for Free players, but some of my other articles are directed towards members. Let’s get started!
Method 1: Killing Hill Giants. Bones are a valuable training commodity throughout runescape, mostly because they’re the main way to train the Prayer skill. Big bones and dragon bones are often in high demand, and luckily hill giants are an easy-to-kill supplier of big bones. To start, you’ll need armor, a weapon, a brass key (which you can buy), and a decent combat level. Head west out of Varrock until you reach a river. Don’t cross the river, but head north until you find a little shack. Use the brass key on the shack, then head down the ladder. Start killing hill giants. Don’t bury the big bones, but hold onto them. Also, if you get a limpwurt root as a drop hold onto it. Once your inventory is full, head to the Grand Exchange and sell everything. Rinse and repeat.

Method 2: Fist of Guthix. This isn’t the best method for making money, but if you really love playing Fist of Guthix or don’t have much to do it can be entertaining. Head to Fist of Guthix, switch to a themeworld, grab your gear and play. Every time you play a game you’ll receive some tokens as a reward. Keep playing until you have enough tokens to buy one of the more expensive or useful items, like rune gauntlets, a rune berserker shield or combat robes. After you buy them, either use up all of their charges or ask the shop owner to uncharge them. You can then go to the Grand Exchange and sell them for a decent amount of money. I would really only recommend this to people with a lot of time on their hands or who really enjoy the game. For a full guide for Fist of Guthix, read this page.

Method 3: Mining coal. This isn’t the best or the funnest method, but it does get the job done. You’ll need 50 mining, but a higher mining level will get you more cash faster. This method simply involves mining coal, banking it, and repeating until you want to sell it. I recommend doing this in the Falador mine, and if you have a high enough level the mining guild is perfect for this. This is a fairly popular method because there is always someone buying coal for some reason or other, so you’re guaranteed to always have customers on the Grand Exchange.

I wish you good luck on your quest to get money, and enjoy whatever stuff you buy with it. Have fun! Also, please check out my other articles.
