Not to worry, as there are methods to earn some quick starter gold and to fund your account quickly!
Looting on a F2P account for some quick cash is fashionable but a contested method.
It requires no startup levels or RuneScape gold as you can hop right onto world 308, run to the town of Edgeville right next to the grand exchange, and start even if you are fresh off of tutorial island!
All that needs doing is looking for people who are fighting and waiting for one to die.
Next, stand on the tile they died on and pick up all of the loot left behind by their killer.
You can do this method as often as you like to grab some easy cash on a new account!
Tip: In the Wilderness, another player may kill you for your hard-earned loot, so make sure to bring some food or bank often!
No levels are required to tan cowhides, just enough OSRS gold to buy the hides in the first place and to pay the tanner to make soft or hard hides.
To start, players need some cowhides in their inventory or bank. They can then run through the gate to the Al Kharid hide tanner west of Lumbridge and pay him a few RSGP to turn your hide into a soft or hard tanned cowhide.
When choosing which cowhide to make, check the Grand Exchange to find which item is more expensive, and make that item.
If you have multiple inventories of hides to tan, you can run to the bank south of the hide tanner for faster trips.
Stronghold of Security
The Stronghold of Security is a quick way to obtain a one time reward of 10,000 free gold, four cool emotes, and some stylish new boots as you pass through its four horsemen of the apocalypse themed dungeons.
To start player must add an authenticator to his or her account to reap the rewards of the Stronghold.
Next, they must travel to the Barbarian Village west of Varrock. Then the player must enter the dungeon at the center of the village.
As the levels of the dungeon descending, the player must answer questions about account security while avoiding dangerous monsters.
At the center of each level is a chest to receive your reward for the level and a ladder to access the next floor.
Once you have reached the last level of the Stronghold, you can use your home teleport to Lumbridge or return the way you came with the ladder near the chest.
Tip: Play it safe and bring lots of food if you have a low hitpoint level here due to many of the monsters can cause you severe damage!
Telekinetically grabbing wines of Zamorak
There is a Magic requirement of level 33 magic and an optional requirement of 500 total levels to access the best RuneScape gold per hour for this method.
This method, if done correctly, can net players up to 300,000 Gp per hour!
In the Asgarnia Chaos Temple, north of Falador, there is a spawn of the wine of Zamorak.
If a player tries to grab this wine, usually all they do is take damage. But this wine can be telekinetically grabbed. Make sure to bring law runes and staff of air to cast the spell, and if you are under 500 total levels, some food as well because the monks will start to attack you!
After you have collected a full inventory of wines, run or teleport back to the Falador bank to deposit your spoils. When ready, players can then sell the wines on the Grand Exchange.
This method sometimes is overcrowded with bots and other players, but with a quick reaction, it is possible to gain large amounts of RuneScape gold here quickly.
Creating Sapphire rings
To create Sapphire rings, a crafting level of 20 and a small amount of Gp to buy the cut sapphires, gold bars, and ring mold is needed.
The best way to create these rings in F2P is to run between the Edgeville bank and the furnace directly to the east.
The player must bring the ring mold 13 gold bars, and 13 cut sapphires with them, then click on the furnace and later on the sapphire ring option on the furnace interface.
Players can then bank their reward and sell the rings on the Grand Exchange when needed.
To make pizzas a cooking level of 35 is required, but as cooking is a fast skill in RuneScape to level up, this is not a very hard level to obtain at all.
First, add a bucket, bowl, or jug of water to a pot of flour to make a pizza base, next add a tomato to make an incomplete pizza.
The final ingredient is cheese, which you add to the incomplete pizza and then cook on a fire or range to make the final product, a plain pizza.
All of the components of the pizza can be bought on the Grand Exchange and resold back to the grand exchange when done, making for a fast and easy way to make some starting cash.
After doing this method, you are going to accumulate some more wealth and cooking levels. At level 55 of cooking, players can create Anchovy pizzas by adding anchovies to plain pizzas, which will make even more Gp per hour than creating plain pizzas!
Casting High Alchemy
A Magic requirement of level 55 is needed as well as some starting cash to buy alchable items and nature runes. Casting the high spell Alchemy on items from the Grand Exchange is a way to quickly make some quick cash, especially if you use the website alchmate.com.
To use Alchmate untick the box for member items and then find whatever the highest difference items are to Alch!
Tip: Use a staff of fire for unlimited fire runes!
