I wasn't aware that there was a max word count therefore the guide had to be posted via replying to the thread.

Welcome to Alora, the best Oldschool RuneScape private server of 2017! This server was released to the public in November of 2016 and has a balanced mix between PvP and Economy. The development team constantly updates the server, taking suggestions and feedback to improve the quality of gameplay for the player. Alora has over 135,000 registered users on the Forums and an average of 500+ players daily (as of August 2017). Hop on the Alora train - we're only going forward! If you haven't already I recommend that you read the rules to familiarize yourself with what's allowed and what's not allowed, rules can change and are regularly updated so make sure that you're caught up with the thread.

Upon your first time logging into Alora you're greeted by a guide NPC who introduces you to Alora. There's a tutorial phase that is recommended if you're new to the game but if you're comfortable enough with your surroundings you're able to skip it. The NPC provides the different game modes/experience rates for you and in order to continue you must select one. These experience rates are linked to OSRS.

Security on Alora is different from other servers, there are no bank pins or account pins and the only way to ensure security on your account is to set-up with 2fa. Your in-game account is linked with your Forum account and if you do as we recommend no one but you will be able to get into your account. Those who do not set-up with 2fa are risking their accounts and items and nothing will be done in terms of a refund. 2fa is the best way to ensure safety on your accounts - if you do not have 2fa enabled on your account it's your own fault!

 

For a more in-depth guide, visit Volta's Two-Factor Authentication Guide

 

 

What is 2fa?

"Two Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA, two step verification or TFA (as an acronym), is an extra layer of security that is known as "multi factor authentication" that requires not only a password and username but also something that only, and only, that user has on them, i.e. a piece of information only they should know (such as the 'secret key' or the code given to you from the authentication application on your phone)"

There are many ways to obtain money in Alora, suited for everyone's needs. This thread is aimed at new members of the community who are looking to make some easy cash, therefore the following points are very good money making techniques for new players particularly - however they're still good for older players!

 


 

 

Thieving Stalls

 

Thieving is the easiest way to make money in Alora. You can find multipe stalls in the room just north of Edgeville bank and steal from the stalls for items. These items can then be sold to the Ali Morissane NPC, who roams around the room you're standing in.

 

 

Banana.png = 2,550 coins

 

 

Emerald_ring.png = 3,250 coins

 

 

Ruby_ring.png = 4,350 coins

 

 

Battlestaff.png = 5,550 coins

 

 

Adamant_scimitar.png = 7,500 coins

 

 

Crushed_gem.png = 10,000 coins

 


 

 

Skilling

 

Skilling is an excellent wya to make money on Alora. Not every skill will earn you profit, especially at lower levels but if you know the right ones to train you're sure to earn good money. As previously mentioned, thieving is a great money making technique.

 

 

Fishing and Cooking: Dark crabs, angerfish

 

Hunter: Chinchompas

 

Crafting: Javelins

 

Farming: High-level potion ingredients

 

Herblore: High-level potions

 

Slayer: Better to be combined with PvM

 


 

 

Player-killing

 

The entire Wilderness is open for Player-vs-Player combat. You're able to earn a large sum of money if you're able to kill other players! This could be one of the fastest ways to make money if done correctly. On top of normal loot from players, you can also make use of the target system (bounty hunter system) that is displayed in the top right-hand cornor when you are within the Wilderness This will find you a suitable target and if you kill that target, you can receive a Mysterious emblem. Emblems can be traded in Edgeville with the Emblem trader for many valuable goods. Even if you kill a player who is not your target if you are carrying an emblem of your own, you have a chance at upgrading it's tier upon the death of your enemies, making it much more valuable

 


 

 

Monster-killing

 

Defeating moneys all around Alora will be the major source of income for many players. You can examine NPCs to see which items they drop and find out which ones are the most profitable slays. You may also wish to do this while completing Slayer tasks (via the Slayer skill) as you can earn slayer points at the same time! These points can then be exchanged for valuable items in the Slayer store.

 


 

 

Merchanting

 

This isn't recommended for those who are not very experienced in this field. Merchanting is another very profitable source of income on Alora. The Trading Post system will likely be your friend in this process - you can check recent offers and find low price goods to purchase. Afterwards, you can flip them and increase the price by however much you'd like. Popular items to do this with are high-level foods as well as high-level equipment that players use to pk/pvm. This is typically not an instant source of gold as it takes time, but if you're patient I'm sure it will pay off.

 


 

 

Donating

 

As always, donating to servers boost your account value a lot. Not only do you gain particular benefits (like access to the donator zones) but you're so able to purchase something from the donator store (depending on how much you spend). There are a lot of obtainable items in the store, some better than others in terms of price. If you plan on donating, be sure to read the Price Guide to ensure that you're purchasing the most valuable item as you possibly can.

As previously discussed, this thread is aimed towards new members of the community and those who are struggling with money, the following gear will be inexpensive in comparison to the high quality gear but they're still pretty good in terms of starting off.

 

 

Drop sources are taken from the Oldschool RuneScape Wiki therefore some monster drops may be incorrect.

The following skill guides are for new players only. If you’re a richer player there are faster ways however this thread is aimed towards those who have little to no money.

 

 

The following experience tables exclude all forms of bonus experience apart from the Well of Goodwill (+30%).

 

 

 

With the addition of the classic rank these guides will be updated accordingly as soon as I have free time
