The methods in this guide may involve considerable risk, including (but not limited to): loss of money/items, unstable prices, and/or slow GE resale.
Reason: Mining & Smithing rework caused very tight profit margins compared to large investment.

You can make money by casting Superheat Item on runite ore and luminite, turning it into rune bars. It's highly recommended to set up a bank preset with 13 runite ores, 13 luminite, and 13 nature runes. The preset should then be configured to be one of the two single-keypress buttons (which can be activated by pressing '1' and '2' respectively). This allows players to cast superheat item almost continuously.

57 Smithing is required for a 10% chance for gaining 2 bars instead of 1 for the same amount of ore.

At a bank interface, press the appropriate key for your superheating preset. Place the Superheat Item spell on your action bar, and repeatedly press the keyboard shortcut to cast the spell while clicking on the last ore in your inventory. Once the rune bars have been made, quickly open the bank interface again then press the appropriate preset key once more.

It is possible to make 14 runite bars per inventory if you are in possession of a runic or greater runic staff. This lowers the frequency of banking by maximising inventory space, but would also require recharging periodically.

While it is possible to superheat over 1,815 bars in an hour, this is an incredibly click-intensive activity. To superheat even 1,716 bars in an hour requires near-undivided attention. Server latency/lag also has a significant impact on your output, as they impact the speed at which you can bank; use a world with low ping and low population count if possible.
