Old School RuneScape

In Old School RuneScape, there are various ways of earning cash and making gold. Some of them are worse, some better, but every single one of them gets you closer to the ultimate goal. In this article, we want to briefly talk about both - literal gold mining in RuneScape and metaphoric gold mining, which refers to straight money-making. Fasten your seatbelt and let's get started!


On our site, besides quality articles, you can also order OSRS gold. Save yourself from tanning Dragonhides and improve your gameplay with some quick currency!


Gold Ore in RuneScape

Gold Ore can be mined from level 40 of Mining skill. Each ore that you gather provides 65 experience towards the Mining skill, and therefore Gold Mining is a decent way of training at this skill at medium levels. The resource is used in the smelting process of the Gold Bars that provides 22.5 Smithing experience or 2,5x this amount while wearing Goldsmithing Gauntlets. Gold Bars are used in the process of making gold items such as Jewellery.


Gold mining as a money-maker in Mining Skill

If you wish to start making money on mining gold in OSRS, then this section will guide you on how to do that.

The recommended level to start with is 85. Even though you can mine gold at 40, we would advise you not to do that since money rates will be very low, and you will waste a lot of time for nothing. To be efficient, you will also need to meet some requirements. A pickaxe of Rune or Dragon tier is a must-have to mine ores of any kind quickly, and it is required for this method as well. One of the best spots to mine is the Crafting Guild, where seven veins of gold can be found. To get there, you need to have 40 Crafting, either Brown Apron or Crafting Cape, and completion of hard and elite Falador tasks will give you access to the bank chest. Another option is to mine at Dondakan's Mines, but that requires some quests like Between a Rock.

When it comes to money rates, Gold Mining is not the best method to earn cash by any means. You can expect to get below 100k per hour, but the exact amount will depend on your click intensity, equipment, and skill level. There are more profitable money makers in the game, so we don't think that mining is as great money-maker as other professions in the game. Hence Gold mining and gold making do not always come in pair.


Where to mine Gold Ore

Gold veins can be found in both free to play areas and those restricted for RuneScape members. Many locations can be considered, but to mine efficiently, you should consider using only those with proximity to the bank and places with many veins near each other. Since respawn times of mentioned ores are pretty high, you will be struggling to make a profit by extracting gold at a mining site that doesn't have enough gold spots. Below you can find a list of available veins per spot:

Free to play: Crafting Guild (7), Karamja Volcano (4), North Crandor (3), Al Kharid (2), Dwarven Mine (2), Rimmington (2) East Varrock (2).

For F2P players, the Al Kharid mine offers the closest proximity to the bank and a Furnace, which is also nearby. It is the best place to mine gold. However, players who lack combat level, as well as pures, will have to pay attention to enemies that reside in this area as Scorpions might be aggressive. Another decent option is the Dwarven Mine, which also has the bank not too far away, but stay away from other options if you wish to store your loot as other locations won't be as kind in terms of banking as to those two. With them, it will be not working to keep your loot and you'd better just drop your mined ores for faster exp.

Pay to play: North Brimhaven (10), Grand Tree (4), Brimhaven (6), Lunar Isle (6), Agility Pyramid (5), TzHaar (3), Keldagrim (1).

From member locations, the most notable are Dondakan's Mine (Arzinian Mine) and Crafting Guild Mine. They both have a significant amount of Ores to collect, and on top of that, the very close proximity to the bank decreases the need for constant travels to distant deposits like with other locations. North Brimhaven mine is another one worth recommending. However, to bank with this one, there are additional requirements, and you will have to hold on to Dramen Staff while mining to access the Fairy Ring Teleportation System. It will let you travel to the bank.

How to earn real money on Old School RS

It is much easier than it sounds. In Old School RuneScape, it is not that hard to earn coins. There are various methods to make money, and you can even find the list with all of them at the official wiki of the game. By utilizing this knowledge, you will be able to earn millions in a matter of hours. Of course, the best money-makers in the world of Gielinor come with various requirements, and with the new account, you won't be able to become rich right away. However, if you are patient enough to train some of your skills to high levels, you could eventually become a millionaire.

Those who already have endgame accounts can enjoy making money on bossing. Bosses in RuneScape are tough only on the first encounter. When you learn how to deal with their mechanics - attacks can be easily avoided, and battles do not last longer than a couple of minutes. Because of that, they can be killed over and over again for the great loot and rare drops that could be sold for tens of dollars. If you enjoy combat in this game, make sure to level up your stats and challenge bosses to make a bank.

On the other hand, if fighting doesn't interest you in the slightest, you won't have to do it to make money. There are currently over 15 non-combat skills that can be trained, and almost every single one of them has a money-making method connected to it that on higher levels can give you a decent profit. Even if you will opt not to train at all, there is always Flipping that you could use to your advantage. By buying items on Grand Exchange for less and selling them for more, the best flippers are able to make more gold than with any other method available in the game. To start Flipping, you don't need anything besides a few millions that you could get from Sellers and Friends website and a piece of basic knowledge about the game.

Now that you know that there are ways to get rich in the game, you just have to harvest your profits by selling GP at Sellers and Friends website. It is a safe, quick, and reliable way of trading. The process is simple, and there will be our team member to guide you through every step of it.
