Runescape – Daily/Weekly Chores and Money Making

Here is a list of daily and weekly Runescape tasks – If you complete this list every day/week when you log on you will find it does not take long but you will end up with a large pile of cash 🙂

Even if you can’t do some of these tasks, pick some others from the list that you can.

Daily chores are:

First tele to your house and check next star time and location – mining the star is relaxing, gives mining experience and gives about 90k gp for maybe 20-30 mins mining (sadly only once a day) – If you don’t have a telescope join hunt4stars clan chat.

Teleport to Varrock and visit Zaff while wearing Varrock armour(Obtained by completing the Varrock achievement diary), talk to him and buy battlestaffs. Varrock 3 armour means you can get 64 staffs a day Varrock 2=32 Varrock 1=16 its a 1.3k profit on each one per day for a couple mins effort if you just sell them on the grand exchange. Lets assume you have varrock 3 = 83.2k (you can also make them into air staffs for crafting exp and sell on GE or you can just sell them for greater profit to players or high alc).


Once you complete all 3 stages of the Varrock achievement diary you are able to (while wearing the varrock armour) purchase upto 64 battlestaves from zaff in varrock. The battlestaves have a set price of 7000gp each

The beauty of this is that they are in huge demand from crafters and alchers and can usually fetch well over 8000gp each in the grand exchange and they usually sell instantly. The oher great thing is that almost never go down in price, they’re pretty steady in price so you dont have to worry much about the demand going down as you can see here:

Currently battlestaves sell instantly at around 8400gp each which is a profit of over 1400gp per staff with absolutely zero effort

As you can see you can buy 64 staves per day for a nice profit of 1400-1500 each instantly, the best part is you can buy the battlestaves from zaff and run 5 seconds north to the grand exchange and instantly sell them


Go to GE to change any merching investments.

Walk or glory teleport to Edgeville and go to the nearby fairy ring to manage your kingdom. Top up populariity generally doubles your money up to 75k a day (eg you spend 75k for 150k worth of stuff) – See the following guide.

MANAGE THY KINGDOM:The first thing you should do is complete both quests (theyre fairly easy) so you can use 15 workers to collect resources. After you’ve completed the quests get your favour upto the max 100% and keep it there, it takes perhaps 1 minute per day max. It’s best to use a fairy ring (available during fairytale pt.2 quest) to get to the kingdom, use code CIP

You can put upto 7.5m gp into the coffers but it’s not necessary if you cant afford it, aslong as you keep over 75,000gp (It takes 75k out of the coffers per day) you’ll technically be fine but i recommend keeping a week or two’s amount in there just to make it easy incase you forget…1m gp is more than enough.

**you kingdom takes 10% of what’s in the coffers upto a maximum of 75k (if youve done both quests). If you have less than 750,000gp in the coffers you will be getting less profit so it’s best to always keep over 750k in the coffers**

Hes an example showing one way you can distribute your workers:
– 10 workers on maple logs
– 5 workers on flax

The costs per unit for your workers effort is as follows:

Runescape - Costs per unit for kingdom workers effort
Runescape – Costs per unit for kingdom workers effort

So using my choices per day my cost is 75,000gp (This is a fixed cost no matter what you choose) and for that I recieve the following:

890 maple logs and 9 bird nests – 67,400 gp
625 flax and 1 random herb seed – 54,500 gp

In addition to the above I also recieve usually 5 random tree seeds per day which can fetch between 20,000 – 500,000+ depending on the type. It’s completely random and i’ve recieved as low as 5k gp in seeds and as high as 500k from a few magic seeds. I usually average around 50k in tree seeds per day over the longterm.

MANAGE THY KINGDOM is the perfect introduction to runescape investing and I recommend it for everyone. Even if you have an extremely limited amount of cash this is the perfect thing for youas long as you have around 1m cash you’re all set! The best way to look at it is if you keep the coffers topped up around 1m cash at all times you’ll always get around 85-100k profit per day for a daily return on investment of between 8-10%. As you can see even if you are relatively poor you can get upto 10% proit per day!


Go back to Edge and go do Bork for about 7 to 9k, 3 gems, 5 blue charms, 2 green and 7 crimson

House tele out recharge prayer, use garden portal to yanile for your daily 80 buckets of sand ge 140 ea = 11k.

Go to the bank get ready for a farming run. 1 rannar at Trolheim 4 toadflax at other locations generally gives 7 rannars and 28 toadflax for a profit of 74k per run.

HERB FARMING (2 runs per day):For this guide I’m only including the 4 major herb patches since I never use the trollheim patch (available after the “My Arm’s Big Adventure” quest), you can include it if you want and since it never gets diseased your profits can be even better.

When it comes to growing herbs it is recommend to use super compost and, if you have them, use magic secateurs. Herbs are going to die, it’s unavoidable, but over the longterm everyone seems to agree that you average around 6 herbs per seed after you count the herbs that die, for this guide im going to use this average. Many people like to grow ranarr and/or snapdragon because they are worth the most and if you have millions of gp to buy the compost and seeds then by all means go for it (I personally grow Ranarr) but for most people starting out or that don’t have a lot of money toadflax is recommend. Toadflax sells extremely well for a very good price and the seeds cost almost nothing so your investment won’t be that much. For this guide we are going to use Toadflax as an example.

The 4 major herb plots are located here:

For a more detailed guide on herb farming i recommend`s excellend guide.

Herb`s take approx. 75-80 minutes to grow and the best part is they grow even while you are logged out. For this guide were using the example of you planting 4 toadflax seeds before going to bed and each day logging in to pick them and then playing runescape for around 1 hour a day until you can plant a 2nd round of herbs before logging out. This will give you 8 herb seeds per day planted and picked for an average of 48-50 herbs.

Runescape – Toadflax Prices and Total Profit

As you can see the cost/profit breaks down as follows:

1 toadflax seed + 1 super compost = 800 gp
6 toadflax herbs = 14,300gp

This gives us an average profit of around 13,500gp per seed planted and picked which multiplied by 4 patches is a nice 54,000gp profit. With our assumed 8 seeds per day thats 108,000gp profit with perhaps 15 minutes of effort at most. For others that are logged in for longer you can obviously increase your profits exponentially. There have been many times I`ve planted and picked over 30 seeds in a day which is equal to over 400,000gp profit.

APPOXIMATE PROFIT PER DAY: 108,000gp (8 seeds planted and picked)

Whilst at catherby patch talk to Arhein on dock and buy daily 80 seaweed and 40 pineapple (I make glass for mage exp as im generally on lunar but you can just sell on GE) I use pineapples for supercompost 18k for seaweed on GE.

That lot doesn’t take long and nets 267k (with varrock 3 armour) plus 90k for star and few good charms – then off to slayer or whatever else I want to do.

Weekly chores are:

Tears of guthix – I get about 8k agility exp here – I hate agility.

Circus – Just do for max exp eg hardest to lowest only succedding once no emotes gives me about:

20k mage exp

18k range

8k agility

Penguins w60 get as many as you can 25exp per penguin x skill level eg for my 80 summoning I get 80x15x25=30k summoning exp a massive saving for me in cash, time and charms (theres a max of 15 penguins a week).


You may need to change your setup to do this efficiently but this guide should give you some ideas – If your in Varrock why not buy some staffs its instant profit to spend on pk gear.

I dont think any of the above breaks Jagex rules and its definately worth doing – The tasks above are very low financial risk unlike merching on the GE and are very fast to complete. If you have any questions please post on the forums.
