How to buy OSRS gold safely in 2021
Safely buying gold on OSRSHere at luckycharmgold, buying and selling gold is our bread and butter. We have been servicing the community for years, with combined decades of experience in the black market of Runescape from our management team. Our highest priority is making sure you, the customer, are happy with your services and can safely buy and sell gold at our website by absolutely minimizing the risk of a real-world trading ban.
A majority of RWT bans are focused on sellers, not buyers. Even after Jagex’s recent announcement of rule changes, this has changed very little. A vast majority of RWT activities go unbanned – we have never had a single ban on our trading accounts since starting up gold services over 3 years ago, as we take every precaution possible to avoid this. As a buyer or seller, rest assured that we take the security of our customers extremely seriously and do everything in our power to keep you and your account safe, but to stay as safe as you possibly can be following these instructions when purchasing or selling GP.
Contrary to popular belief, a VPN will NOT make your safer – in fact, using a VPN will make you more likely to be banned. This is due to the IPs used by VPNs being flagged by Jagex as it is extremely common for Gold farmers to use these VPNs to circumvent their own flagged/banned IP address. On top of that, your account changing IP and instantly trading large amounts of wealth will instantly flag on Jagex’s system and get you caught. The safest thing to do is to trade on the IP address and device that you normally play the game on, as this will not flag your account within Jagex’s systems and will keep you safer.
AccountSome customers may be inclined to use an alt account, a pure or a fresh account to use as a mule for their transaction – this also is a bad idea, unless this account is also played frequently alongside your main. A fresh account is monitored heavily, as well as alternate accounts that do not play the game but are logging in and out to trade large sums of wealth. This will actually increase the likelihood of your main being banned, as Jagex is far more likely to flag an alternate account used solely for RWT and trace the wealth transfer back to your main.
Low-level accounts with low playtime and trading on free-to-play worlds will also increase the likelihood of being flagged, as these are the accounts Jagex looks out for and monitors. At Luckycharmgold we only use high-level accounts with good playtime and membership to absolutely minimize the risk of our trading accounts being flagged and caught, and we suggest that, if possible, you do the same - A level 3 fresh off tutorial island trading large amounts of wealth is far more suspicious than a high level main with hundreds of hours of playtime.
Methods of transfer
For low amounts, less than a few hundred million GP, trading another player outside of the GE or in Lumbridge is more than fine. Jagex tends to not monitor these low-level trades, as many players will transfer wealth between alts and lending items to clan members and friends, to avoid false banning players for RWT when they are simply borrowing or lending items.
For higher amount trades, we at Luckycharmgold are more than happy to transfer through different methods. Previously, staking was an excellent way, as imbalanced and thrown stakes have never resulted in a ban for RWT, but since the removal of uncapped stakes we now offer PVP world and wilderness services – simply kill one of our accounts with the GP in its inventory or have the account drop the GP on the floor, having it appear immediately, loot the items and teleport away quickly. If you are not confident entering and leaving a PVP area with a large sum of GP on you, we also offer Tip Jar transfer – placing the GP in the tip jar in your house to once again avoiding the flags of high imbalance trades.
Why not bonds?
Bonds are a way of directly buying gold off of Jagex, with absolutely 0 risks of a real-world trading ban. Though some overly-cautious players choose to purchase their gold this way, it is highly recommended to avoid buying bonds. They are extremely expensive for the amount of gold you get, costing around 4x as much as black market gold, whilst the actual risk of purchasing gold is extremely low – our workers and suppliers are the only ones truly at risk of a ban, and we haven’t seen any yet within our discord or our gold site.
How safe is it?
Although Jagex has been increasingly threatening to crack down on RWT, the sheer volume of gold traded means it is exceptionally unlikely you will be caught. We have never had any customers be banned from buying or selling gold through our services, and the ones we have spoken to about bans have only been caught due to sloppy methods from other sites less concerned about the safety of their customers – doing extremely large transactions through trades on fresh level 3 free to play accounts. With Luckycharmgold you are as safe as you can possibly be with your transaction.
