Free to Play (F2p) Money Making Guide OSRS

Money in the real world as well as in the virtual or in our case OSRS gold is very valuable, the players in the game use it to buy different objects and resources in the game. Many players try different f2p money making osrs gold methods to get richer but it seems you can’t stay rich for a long time.

And over time, more and more F2p money making OSRS gold methods are going old. That’s why we need new ideas and new ways for F2p money making OSRS methods to use.

We will now look at some of the best F2p money making OSRS methods that you can use. I’m going to explain everything you need to know and the requirements that you need to have for every method.

I’m going to list to you every F2p money making OSRS method starting from lowest to highest:

1 . Buying team capes – Profit 97.315 GP

Team capes are items bought from several cape merchants. The merchants sell the capes starting for 50 GP each, however, on the Grand Exchange, they can go for thousands of coins. The Cape merchants are located in the wilderness. You can die and lose your items in the wilderness to other players so look out for player killers.

The skill needed: None

Items: 25,000+ GP if you can is recommended and 83 x Energy potion.

You will buy the capes in bulk to stock up and this causes a price spike for certain capes, especially during the weekend when clan battles tend to happen. The strategy of this F2p money making OSRS is to get from 50-1500 GP.

Then you need to decide which store you are going to buy from. And you need to know which cape is currently selling for the most and so you will want to prioritize buying that cape first.

As you start to accumulate up you can increase your total GP per hour by investing in energy potions. These will restore your run energy and therefore decrease the amount of time it takes you to run from the bank to a Cape merchant.

 Another strategy for this method is to consider changing worlds when you buy out the cape seller’s stock. Also, something to consider is to bring your own pk gear in order to try and kill other players buying capes or found along the way; this will also allow you to defend yourself from other pkers.

If your team cape stops selling at a high price you may need to drop the price to adjust for changes in the market. If your cape is selling instantly, try selling it at a bit of a higher price to maximize profit.

2 . Collecting wine of zamorak – Profit 128,716 GP

For this f2p money making OSRS guide we are going to collect Wine of Zamorak that is used by members to create ranging and bastion potions. As such, they are very valuable items. 

They respawn every 30 seconds on two tables in the Chaos Temple, which is located north-west of Goblin Village, and are guarded by Monks of Zamorak. 

The second Wine of Zamorak spawn can be accessed by climbing up the ladder by the entrance. Climbing the ladder requires you to have a total level of 500 while wearing a set of Zamorak monk robes, and you need to have 37 magic skills.

The inventory setup should consist of law runes and water runes (and wizard’s mind bombs if doing the second method). Wield a staff of air and wear zamorak monk robes.

The basics of collecting the wine of zamorak are as follows: Make your way to the chaos temple then Cast Telekinetic Grab on wines until your inventory is full after that Cast Teleport to Falador.

Now I’m going to suggest to you to methods of doing this:

First Method Upper-Floor Only

This method is more consistent as you only need to camp one spot. Climb up the ladder and begin casting Telekinetic Grab on wines. Then when your inventory is full, teleport to Falador and repeat.

Second Method Both Floors

You’re going to want to bring some wizard’s mind bombs for this method, as stealing wines from the bottom floor lowers your stats. It is recommended to bring 10 or so, depending on your magic level. 

Bring some food (lobster is recommended) as well to heal yourself. You’re also going to want to turn off Auto Retaliate as it won’t allow you to climb the ladder.

Climb up the ladder and cast Telekinetic Grab on the wine on the table, then climb down the ladder. Cast Telekinetic Grab on the wine on the table and quickly climb back up the ladder. If you aren’t quick enough you may take some damage. This method is about twice as fast as the previous method.


The wines have a respawn rate of 30 seconds, so set a timer to go off every 30 seconds for maximum efficiency. The 500 and 750 skill total worlds are often packed. It is recommended to use a less busy world. This is especially useful for the first method.

3 . Collecting cosmic runes – Profit 257,000 GP

f2p money making osrs

With this f2p money making osrs guide we are going to collect cosmic rune that can be found in level 48 wilderness. Located South of the Frozen Waste Plateau. 

One location that players who do not hold the proper levels to create cosmic runes via rune crafting at the cosmic altar is in the deeper Wilderness south of the Frozen Waste Plateau near the gate.

The skill needed:  Decent Attack and Defence, 43 Prayer

Items: Armour (optional), Water rune, law rune, Air runes for Falador Teleport, Food to survive attacks from the icy creatures and PKers, Energy potions

Since this location of these cosmic rune spawns is located in the wilderness, one should always be aware of the risk of player killers along with the many ice giant and ice warrior spawns within proximity of the cosmic rune spawn.

Since this area is located in the wilderness, players should not take anything they are not prepared to lose. It takes approximately 5 Minutes and 40 Seconds to get to the location of the spawns via walking from the Northwest tile in the middle of Falador Square then walking North past the mind altar.

Once there, one can stay indefinitely. Though, it is recommended to bank every hour to lessen the chance of being killed via teleport to Falador. Once the player has arrived at this location, they can find one cosmic rune spawn containing 3 runes in the northwest corner of the Frozen Waste Plateau.

It is highly recommended to run to the most northwest tile and wait out the aggression timer. After losing aggression to the ice giants and warriors, You may start collecting and hopping worlds.

Cosmic Rune respawn time is 1 Minute and 50 Seconds. To maximize profits, it is recommended to change worlds after rune pickup. Without changing worlds, one can expect to only pick up 100 runes per hour.

4 . Collecting red spiders’ eggs – Profit 296,000 GP

There are 2 red spiders’ eggs spawns in the swamp area of the Varrock Sewers where moss giants are found. This is the area north-west of the entrance of the Varrock Sewers, just south of Bryophyta’s lair. For F2p players, this is the farthest area reached in the Varrock Sewers.

f2p money making osrs

The skill needed:  69+ Combat

Items: Staff of air, Iron longsword, Law rune, Fire rune, Energy potion.

As the sewer is a multi-combat area, and the deadly red spiders are aggressive, players with a combat level lower than 69 can get attacked by multiple spiders at a time, so having food is recommended. The deadly red spiders are found immediately after reaching the end of the sewer tunnel going east-west.

Since this area is secluded off and only reached after slashing through a spider’s web, a slashing weapon (any cheap scimitar or sword) or a knife will be required to slash through to get to the eggs.

If you choose to bring an air staff for the Varrock Teleport method, the slash item will have to be dropped every run. If not, the player can keep their slash weapon equipped to save an inventory slot.

Route explanation:

  • Take out 2.5 energy potions, law and fire runes, food if low level, and a disposable slash item from the bank.
  • Head to the manhole at the eastern exit of Varrock Palace.
  • Navigate through the sewers until the web is reached.
  • Slash the web, and drop the slash item.
  • Pick up all the red spider eggs, then (if the player does not have a Combat level of 69+, find a safe spot and) switch worlds.
  • Repeat until full, then teleport back to Varrock, and bank the yield. It is recommended that you should bank the eggs in the eastern Varrock bank until you are satisfied with the number of eggs collected, and then sell them.
  • Without the use of any teleports, a run starting and ending in the Varrock bank to the eggs in the sewers will take anywhere from 10-12 minutes.
  • Using the chronicle (obtained from Diango in Draynor Village) makes a single run take about 7-9 minutes.
  • This also allows for wielding of the slashing weapon and removes the need to bring the staff or runes, at the cost of slightly more running.
  • Using the Varrock Teleport spell and collecting an inventory of 26 eggs also makes a single run take 7-9 minutes.
  • With world-hopping at 69+ combat, one inventory can be done in as little as 3.5 minutes, producing upwards of 445+ eggs per hour.

The eggs will spawn roughly every 42 seconds at the southernmost part of the sewer. There are multiple aggressive deadly red spiders and moss giants, which can be safespotted (which allows you to be out of combat to switch worlds). To collect the eggs, you will need to come out of the safespot.

5 . Mining runite ore – Profit 450,000 GP

Mining runite ore, a high-level ore that frequently sells for a high price (11,250 coins), is an achievement in itself. There is only one place in F2p where players can mine it: the Lava Maze runite mine, which contains two rocks. It is located north-west of the Lava Maze in level 46 Wilderness.

f2p money making osrs

The skill needed: 85+ Mining, 40 Attack, 40 Defence, 25 Magic

Items: Rune pickaxe, Rune armor (optional}, Runes for teleportation spells, Anchovy pizza or Swordfish.

Miners need to mine with extreme caution since there is the always-looming threat of a player killer, who will show up. With Attack 40, you can wield your rune pickaxe for extra inventory space. With Defence 40 (optional), you can wear rune armor to defend yourself against player killers.

But simply not wearing armor or wearing light armor may be better so you can run to level 20 Wilderness, allowing you to teleport away. Before going out there, miners should bring the best food in F2p, swordfish or anchovy pizzas. You should know that pizza takes longer to eat, but heals more overall. 

A good strategy is to track the ore respawn times between worlds, so you cycle through a certain rotation of worlds, visiting each world every 12 minutes and mining the two rocks as soon as they spawn.

With skill and luck, miners can get between 30 and 60 ores an hour, thus yielding between 337,500 and 675,000 coins, but the typical norm averages at roughly 40 ores per hour, which is 450,000 coins, due to constant world-hopping and bank time.

Some of these methods are dangerous but they are one of the best f2p money making OSRS ways to try on. Do not dismiss them simply because they are dangerous, you may like them and use this f2p money making OSRS methods all the time.
