A: There are multiple ways to make money on Grinderscape.
- If you are a new player, it is recommended to start with theiving as this gives you straight gp.
- Once you've gotten some money from theiving, another good money making method is slayer.
- Once you've maxed your combat stats, PVMing (bossing) is the ultimate (safe) way to get money.
- If you like to gamble/stake, this could also be a good way to make money. BEWARE! This is also how to lose money as well.

Q: What are some staking methods?
A: There are many methods players use to battle over a stake.
- Dragon Dagger Spec (DDSing): You use your Dragon Dagger (P++) only. If another player uses an item other than the DDS, they can be banned for scamming.
- DDS to Whip: You use your DDS and your whip. Again, if a weapon other than a DDS/Whip are used, they can be banned for scamming.
- Boxing: This is a bit of a slow fight, but are even in odds. All weapons are disabled, and the two players fight to the death with nothing but their hands.
It is recommended that you record all your fights in case someone does decide to scam you. It won't take up much memory if you delete the videos after you're done with them.

Q: How do I become a staff member of GrinderScape?
A: If you think there's an application for a staff member, think again. The staff team will most likely choose a player with full potential to be a staff member of Grinderscape. You'll have to be respectful, helpful and trusted in order to become a staff member.
- Respectful: Always respect players, who they are/what they like/etc. If you're a mean spirited brute to players for no reason, it is highly unlikely that you will ever be considered for any staff position.
- Helpful: Help players in-game. If they ask for help, then try your best to provide help for the players in need. Please don't try to lie to players. That'll ruin your reputation + your chances of playing the game anymore.
- Trusted: Gain player's trust! You can do this by providing MM's/Item transfers to players. It's hard to do so, but it's worth gaining trust from people. If you feel like you have what it takes to become a trusted Middleman, then you can apply.
Please note that these things do not guarantee a staff position.
Q: How do I become a middleman?
A: To become a middleman, you can apply on our forums here

- Be respectful and an overall nice human
for a complete list of requirements.
Q: How do I become a veteran?
A: Your account must have a creation date of at least 2 years ago. To check this, go to your quest tab, click on the "i" icon and scroll down to check your join date. When you are sure you have the requirement, you can personal message an in-game administrator+ who can give you the rank in-game. To get the rank on Forums, please make a new topic here
