How do you make good amounts of money on the game "Runescape", I've been playing it so long but I make like barely any money on it.

According to a nice backgrounder piece on Wikipedia, RuneScape is set in a medieval fantasy world, similar to "Guild Wars" or "EverQuest", where players control character representations of themselves. As with most massive multiplayer online roleplaying games (MMORPG), there is no overall objective or end to the game. Players explore, form alliances, earn gold coins, perform optional tasks, and complete quests for rewards and to build character's skills.

During peak hours, it is common to see around 170,000 players online across the 115 international servers in 5 countries, with a peak in excess of 185,000 simultaneous logged-in players reached in early February 2006. Up to 2,000 players may be on one server at once, allowing a maximum of 230,000 online players at any one time. These servers are called "worlds" in RuneScape. These servers are located in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, the Netherlands and Australia, making it the most popular online Java based game in the world. RuneScape is updated with roughly 4 main updates a month - creating updates on a weekly basis, with the addition of new skills, quests, areas of the map, items, or other details added to the imaginary world.

Very impressive, but let's talk about how you can make money as a RuneScape character, since you already know the game pretty well, right?

According to some RuneScape experts, there are basically eight ways you can make money in the game:

2.High alchemizing
6.Dragon & giant slaying
7.Fishing and RuneCrafting

Any of those sound appealing?

In terms of some specifics, this player suggests that thieves should do their best to pickpocket guards, especially if you're at least a level 50 player. If you'd rather not mug guards, you can become at least a level 40 miner and sell coal that you've mined to the bank for a good profit.

Merchanting is what sounds most appealing to me (but I'm a business guy / capitalist!) and as a merchant, always haggle to get the best price on any goods you buy. Seems like good advice, doesn't it?

If you want to just read a pretty random collection of money-making tips, check out Sal's Money-Making Tips on the same site. There's some humor in there too, with advice like "steal enough fur til you get enough fur." Um, okay. An easier-to-read tips page can also be found on the Nexodyne Forums.

Another site well worth reading is RuneHQ, specifically its interesting Guide to Money Making. You're definitely not alone in your quest!

Generally a Google search for Make Money Runescape produces over 800,000 matches, so there's plenty of reading available for the avid player.

Hope that helps you out. Good luck moving up in levels and slaying those dragons!
