Most Old School Runescape players find the beginning of their journey to be quite challenging. The game’s steep hills make it difficult for their progress through the game quickly enough, but some welcome this hurdle at first and use it as a tool to enjoy later parts of gameplay without limitations or obstacles impeding their advancement.
If you want to make money early on in Old School Runescape, here are a few of the best ways. Most of these methods work for non-members but some only apply if you are a RuneScape member:
Making money in RuneScape early on is easiest by spinning flax, a method that allows you to level up your crafting skill while earning consistent income. You can buy the required Flax from Grand Exchange before traveling to Lumbridge Castle where there are both Spinning Wheels and Banks for ease of use.
One way to get leather is by hunting cows. Cowhides can either be bought or taken from the Lumbridge Farms, then traded for money at Al Kharid.
Want to make a quick buck? Consider this, in Al-Kharid there is an animal hide shop where the owner will turn your hides into leather for you. You can then sell them back at 152 coins each! If that isn’t enough of an incentive, consider making dragonhide armor by turning it over to him – he’ll give his price and buy what you’ve got too!
Wines of Zamorak
This method is one of the best money-making methods for free players. In this case, you’ll be stealing wines from Asgarnia’s chaos temple using your level 33 magic skills.
Players should bring a staff of air, law runes, and wizard mind bombs to do the method most effectively. For players with lower levels it is advised that they leave once wine has been taken as monks will get angry and attack you if remain in their temple. The best method is only entering when there’s another wine upstairs which makes this process easier
