How To Make Money In Runescape
Runescape is a massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMPORG) in two dimensions. The game is predicated on real-time interactions in a fantasy world with other online players. The game can be free, but there is a membership cost if players would like to sell their accounts or gold. The cost varies per month, but is around $7.00 depending on the payment processor. Most likely, if you are finding this, you already play. If not, it’s best to just sign up and see if you like the game! The game is similar to World of Warcraft, and players can go on quests, kill beasts and gain experience.
So how do you turn these countless hours of gameplay into real money? Well, I’d like to say it’s easy, so I will! It’s easy. The problem is the sheer amount of time it can consume. Two major ways of profiting from Runescape exist, both of which are online: Runescape forums and private sites that buy gold or accounts. Gold is the key to achievement in the game, as well as required to make a profit. High-level experience points accounts can also be sold will be ignored for the purposes of this “Money Making for Runescape” guide, disregarding efficacy. The software for this is hit and miss, and requires upfront cost and is still somewhat time-consuming. The official website of Runescape bans all the forms of cheat codes. This is to promote fairness in the games for all players.
The features of this game are dynamic, and updates are frequent. But as of now, the best way for a new player to gain gold is to get an item, and trade it in. The Grand Exchange is the largest place in Runescape to trade in mining products, like: fishing, potato farming, mining and wood. Money making for Runescape requires a certain degree of investment of the gold you acquire in-game. You need tools to do the aforementioned moneymakers.
For instance, get your fishing skills up to level 40 and you can make a considerable amount of money selling lobsters. Take the lobsters to the character Stiles and you can then trade his note for currency. In general, gold schemes that make less than 10k an hour are not worth your time. Selling runes, fletching and cooking are viable plans for gold acquisition. Herbs and toads are also highly profitable, and farming flax is perfect for beginners.
The easiest way to get gold out of the game is the manly mission of killing innocent animals. Eliminating chickens and selling their feathers is a true beginner way of acquiring gold pieces. Killling cows for cowhide is the next step up. Make sure to pick every piece of gold, even the small amounts. They tend to add up. When encountering non-player characters (NPC) that are difficult to defeat, make sure to look up tutorials on how to defeat the characters. You might find this is a more fun way of accumulating gold. You will get the hang of thieving, but you may never get the hang of farming — it can be boring.
Buying low and selling high is a great way to play the game like a stock market. The caveat is you must have quite a bit of capital. Playing the Grand Exchange usually requires about 1 million gold pieces. Research the average prices for items on the Grand Exchange and take note of the fluctuations based on the times of day. Hold onto items for as long as you can, especially if they become discontinued. As a standard rule, the further a common item is from the Grand Exchange, the more gold it will garner. The increased cost is for the time it takes the player to get to the centralized location. Oh, and if you haven’t already, open a bank account to store your gold!
Most importantly, use multiple sources to find tips and tutorials on how to gain gold. In short, go to the official Runescape forums, or the horses mouth.
