Zaros New Player Money Making Guide


Recommended Posts

Shout out to Croogs for the Deadman mode information. 

So, you have just created yourself a new account in Zaros. You've selected the No restriction or Realism gamemode and you're wondering where to start. 

Zaros boasts an economy server and is very similar to OSRS in terms of mechanics and content. 

"But, Panlux, we want to jump into the content and start making money right away!"

Well, I've listed below the main money makers in the game. Please be sure to check out FAQ by Perfection found here: Current FAQ: 12/7/2020 - Knowledge Base - Zaros RSPS

Method 1 - Thieving

You can find the Beginner stall at north of home bank. Thieving here gives 1600gp per thieve and you can thieve from the stall roughly every 5 seconds. You do not need any requirements and it can be used even at late game for an "AFK" money making experience. 


After you reach 80 Thieving, you can thieve from Heroes found in Ardougne which give 2490gp per thieve. With the Rogue Set this goes up to 4980gp per successful thieve. 

The Rogue set is obtained randomly by thieving from all NPCs in Zaros. 



Method 2 - Slayer

Slayer is one of the main money makers in Zaros. Whether you are just creating a new account, or you are in the late-game, slayer is and will probably always be one of the most consistent money makers.

You can start Slayer by speaking with the Slayer Master south of home. The Slayer Master at home will automatically upgrade with your Slayer level. 


Slayer Assignments drop coins, various noted supplies that can be sold, various unique items and arguably the most important item in Slayer, the Slayer Casket. 

Slayer caskets are dropped randomly from all slayer assignment monsters and will provide you consistent income on your tasks. The main drops are Instance Tokens and Coins which can build up quickly. The main drops you can receive from each Slayer Casket are shown below:




If you get stuck on your Slayer Task remember:

You can skip your current task by speaking to Turael in Burthorpe (City Teleport - Burthorpe - run east)


And if you get stuck on the locations:

Mutated Zygomites are on Fossil Island, and Fossil Island Wyverns are found here:



Most of the other creatures can be found within the Slayer Dungeons. I've added the Slayer location guide by She: Slayer Guide Locs - PvM/PvP - Zaros RSPS

TIP: When the Slayer Skillcape is equipped or in your inventory, there is a 10% chance of being given the option to have a previous slayer task reassigned when speaking to a Slayer Master. 


Method 3 - Slayer Monsters (PVM) 

Once you reach 75 Slayer, you can kill monsters that are not your slayer task for consistent profit per hour. PVM can reach some of the highest GP per hour. These monsters usually drop coins or alchable items, however there are some monsters that drop expensive, sought after items:

Gargoyles - 1.5m+ per hour
Brutal Black Dragons - TBC
Nechryael - 2m+ per hour
Ancient Wyvern - TBC
Spiritual Mages - Drops Dragon Boots
Drakes - TBC
Abyssal Demons - Drops Abyssal Whips



Method 4 - Bossing

I would recommend using Setup's Bossing guide - Please see Setup's Guide here: https://forum.zaros.io/topic/102-monster-guides-directory/

Almost all of the mechanics for the bosses on the Bosses Teleport are identical to OSRS. I have added a list along with the main drops, and a link to the mechanics and full drop table:

There are a few bosses which you can only kill when assigned on a Slayer Task. I have listed these below:

Method 5 - Minigames

Method 6 - Donating

Donating helps to support the developers of the game and help them pay for the cost of keeping the server online and providing updates. 

In terms of moneymaking, you can use the donation system to your advantage to skip the early game.

For the maximum cash possible from donating, you should purchase scrolls and sell them directly to players, without claiming any of points.
