Your combat skills can make you a very rich player indeed in Old School Runescape.

Making OSRS gold is a pivotal aspect of Old School RuneScape, and there are many different ways for you to get it. You can even choose to buy OSRS gold if you wish, as long as you can find a reputable place that has OSRS gold for sale. If this is something that you want to avoid, however, then you can put your trust in handy combat by making OSRS GP the old-fashioned way. This article will be discussing some techniques that you can use.


If you have already done some research into earning OSRS gold through combat, then odds are you will be familiar with the use of dragons to make some gold. Get yourself an anti-dragon shield, armour, and a weapon of choice and you could stand to make over 450K per hour from Green Dragons alone. They hardly pose much of a threat either, since they only offer up a couple of melee attacks that shouldn’t really trouble you. That said, you will be fighting them in the Wilderness so don’t bring anything that you don’t want to end up losing.

Whilst we are on the subject of dragons, we can also take a look into Brutal Black Dragons. There are more requirements for these enemies, though you can expect profits of over 700K per hour with this method. To do so, you will need to get your Slayer level up to 77 and your Prayer at 37 and have protection from magic.

If you want to get started with the very profitable technique, then first head to the northwestern part of the Catacombs of Kourend, where you will find these beasts. Their drops are where the value is at, so take them to the Grand Exchange when you are ready, and make sure to use the nearby church to keep your Prayer topped up.

Slayer Tower Gargoyles

Do you want a method that will take you over 500K OSRS gold per hour? Of course, you do! Though here we are going to need to meet a criteria or two. Firstly, our Slayer level needs to be at 75, as does your Strength, Attack, and Defence as well. The drops that they come up with are very valuable, and they can be high alched as well if you happen to have high alchemy.

We are going to need to find the slayer tower then go up the ladder where you will find the Gargoyles. Having a decent bludgeon weapon can be very useful, and they are weak to crush weapons as well. The drops that you receive will bump up in value as you start to collect them, and if you are well prepared enough you will earn even more over the course of time.

Killing Ogres

You might have heard of this method already, given how popular that it is. But why is it so popular? Simply put, it’s very straightforward and you can even do it if you have a free account. Grab some food and armour then get through the Corsair Curse quest.

Once this is done, get off the boat in Corsair Cove and go west to the dungeon. Start attacking the ogres from range (if you have a Twisted Bow then great) and you can start picking them off. You can then go ahead and get the rune items which are converted into gold, and then high alched to make into profit. This method usually makes over 120K per hour, so even though it does offer less reward than others it is able to be done if you have a free account, and it’s very simple to perform.

Beating Vorkath

Once you have finished the Dragon Slayer 2 quest, you will be able to take advantage of this technique. Killing Vorkath can be very profitable indeed, and is considered one of the best methods available from a combat point of view.

After you have killed Vorkath, you will then need to grab the loot that you get and put them in the bank. Rinse and repeat this process, and you will be reaching the dizzying heights of over 1,000,000 OSRS GP per hour. You aren’t really going to struggle with this boss as it is rather easy to beat, especially if you happen to have the Toxic Blowpipe handy.

These are all viable methods of making OSRS GP in Old School Runescape. So if you would rather adapt to the ways that are available in the game, then you now have some ideas of how you can use your combat to do so.
