Runecrafting is a good way to make money for members, and while it isn't as good for non members, it is still a source of profit. There are also other methods that have to do with Runecrafting, but don't require you do actually do any crafting of your own.For non members, they only need to have completed the Rune Mysteries Quest. For now you need to mine Rune Essence on your own, and then runecraft Air Runes. The Air Runes can be sold for up to 20gp each. Once you reach level 14 in Runecrafting, you can switch to Fire Runes, however once you have reached around 44 Runecrafting, if you're a non member, go back to Airs using the World 16 Airs method but use it as a runner instead of a crafter. See below for a more detailed explanation of World 16 Air running.For members, once you reach level 44 Runecrafting, it is suggested to craft Nature Runes as they can be sold for much higher runescape gold than Air Runes. An easy crafting option is crafting through the Abyss.
The fastest way to do this is to buy a mass amount of Amulets of Glory. Then use them to teleport back to Edgeville after crafting the runes. Whenever one loses all four charges, simply change out with a charged one. The other way to do this, if your Construction Level is high enough, is to hang an Amulet of Glory inside your house, and use the House Teleport spell after you have crafted your Nature Runes through the Abyss, and then use the hung Amulet of Glory in the house to teleport back to Edgeville for another round. Another method is to use the Paddewa Teleport to teleport to Edgeville, which is obtained from Ancient Magicks once you have completed Desert Treasure.Double nature rune running is one of the best ways a RuneScape member can make money. Double Nature Rune running, or double nats, is when you trade someone with 91 Runecrafting in between 9 and 54 Pure Essence, and they buy runescape gold trade back double the amount of essence you offered in Nature Runes.
There are three main ways of getting to the Nature Altar with your load of Pure Essence. One way is through the Abyss, but it is a popular place for revenants, so beware. The second way is simple running to the altar from the Shilo Village bank. The last way is noting all of your Pure Essence, and bringing some money along with you. You then want to travel between the altar and the General Store northwest of there. If you use the abyss, you have to do the Zamorak Mage mini-quest. If you want to use fairy rings to reach the Nature Rune Altar you must have at least started Fairy Tale Part 2. Cure a Queen If you want to bank at Shilo Village bank, you must have completed the Shilo Village quest.Once you are on the Double Nature Rune world, head off to the nature rune altar using the method of your choice. The maximum amount of essence you can take is 28, and you can request assistance again after emptying any pouches you might have. Once you reach the altar, there is usually a line of people also running natures.
You must wait your turn in line, or else the crafter will not trade you. Once you reach the front of the line, request assist the crafter. Here is an example,Once you have crafted all of your essence, you can bank the runes if you want, but it will take much longer unless you are planning on running between the bank and the altar anyways. Get some more essence and repeat.The best place to sell the Nature Runes is probably in Seers Village. Always try to get the best trade possible, because you want to get the most out of all the running you've done. You can also sell the Runes on the official RuneScape forums, or any other forums marketplace section.Another way to make money that has to do with Runecrafting is the World 16 Airs method. This is a lot like Double Nature Rune Running, but it's Air runes instead of Nature runes, you don't get double, and the crafters pay you money. If you want money, you need to be a runner while if you are going for experience, you want to be a crafter instead.
