Method

Fish for Raw Whale (item).svg Raw Whales if using the Octopus (item).svg Octopus + Pig (item).svg Pig Summoning synergy, or Raw Magic Fish (item).svg Magic Fish if not. Other fish providing good GP/hour rates are also listed below. Each piece of equipment will give a substantial boost to profit per hour. Fishing (skill).svg Fishing is the most profitable single-skill money making method, though it gets outclassed by the multiplicative benefits of the combinations above. This method does not include extra gold gained from special chances which would boost profit per hour marginally. Maximum GP/hour rates assume all improvements to GP rate are obtained and in use.
