Money making tips in RS Fishing and Woodcutting

Earlier we’ve introduced Mining skill (one of the Big Three) for money, now let’s see the other two of the Big Three skills for money-making: Fishing and Woodcutting.

Fishing is a very productive skill. Lobsters, swordfish, monkfish and sharks are among the best sellers in the fish market. Bear in mind, in order to fish monkfish, members have to complete Swan Song quest first. Lobsters and swordfish are the only money-making fish in F2P world. It is quite risky to catch them. To avoid such risk, we recommend you to fish on Musa Point (Karamja). In addition to selling your fish, you can also exchange them for bank notes from Stiles at south of the volcano. But Stiles only accept lobster, swordfish and tuna.

Raw fish sells most money so better keep it that way. However if you are practicing Cooking skill, cooked fish sells even more.

The last great skill for earning money is Woodcutting. Members should be cutting maples to get started, and then Yews when you are experienced enough. At the time you reach level 85 or higher in Woodcutting, magic logs will become your best choice. The short coming of cutting magic logs is very time-consuming to fill up an inventory. For non-member players the choices are oak, willow and yew logs. There is a big demand in oak logs and oak planks because people into Construction skills always need them. You can either sell the oak logs directly or make them into oak planks yourself and sell them at a higher price.

You will find the following places ideal for chopping Yew logs: south of Falador, behind Varrock’s Castle, South of Edgevile bank, south of Seers Village, and near the Legends Guild. We also recommend two locations with Magic trees to cut and a bank near them: south of the Seers bank, and near the agility course at the Gnome Stronghold.
