There are multiple ways of botting and goldfarming on RuneScape, with each having their own pros and cons. Here’s a short and sweet guide on what the ways of botting are, including their pros and cons to help you decide.
A way of botting whereas you just run your accounts 24/7 since you don’t care if they get banned or not, as long as you transfer your wealth before the ban. This type of botting is used mostly on methods that has low requirements and also commonly used on Free to play (F2P) accounts since you wouldn’t need to pay for bonds or membership.
- low risk
- no need to pay for bonds/membership
- usually has significantly lower profit compared to P2P methods
- usually needs a significant amount of bots to be worth doing
- F2P moneymaking areas are mostly very crowded
A way of botting whereas the botter only bots his or her accounts only a couple of hours per day (usually under 8 hours) as to prevent the botter’s account to get banned immediately.
Unlike in suicide botting, long-term botting is usually used for mid to high requirement moneymaking methods ranging from methods like blue dragons up to methods like zulrah. Obviously you wouldn’t want your accounts with high-level stats to get banned in a few days, hence you minimize your botting durations as much as possible.
- Significantly higher potential profit
- You can make significant amounts of money just with a few accounts
- High risk in general
- Usually needs accounts with good skill levels depending on your method
- You could potentially lose high-valued items if your accounts gets banned, depending on your method
A subcategory of long-term botting, whereas the botter doesn’t farm for gold, but for the account’s stats, and then sold on various RuneScape botting forums or RuneScape account shops. Account farmers are a small minority in the botting world, but that doesn’t mean it’s not profitable.
Usually, accounts that are ‘farmed’, are accounts that has stats fit for monster killing like green dragons, skeletal wyverns, zulrah, and for high-level skilling like hunting chinchompas and crafting nature runes.
- Accounts are usually easy to sell, but hugely depends on price and stats
- Could be done in F2P
- Can be sold for high prices
- High risk, depending on required gold to reach certain stats
- Could be a waste of time if your bots gets banned after botting them for weeks
If you’re planning on botting or making your own goldfarm, you must be thinking right now: “What way of botting should I do?”
Well, that’s completely up to you, you noob.
You prefer high risk high reward? Go with long term botting. You prefer low risk low reward? Go with suicide botting. The choice is up to you. We suggest testing things out. You probably won’t be making money immediately at the start of your botting journey, just like most of the beginners in the RuneScape botting and goldfarming world. You lost 20m to bans? Suck it up and test some more until you find a good pattern/method.
