Crafting catalysts are items that are obtainable from Treasure Hunter. When equipped, it increases the speed of crafting leather, cutting gems and shaping metals (e.g., making gold rings), with one catalyst consumed per craft. Crafting catalysts can be used when crafting protean hides. However, their effect does not stack with that of protean powerups, and the time-saving benefit of using the catalyst will be wasted as a result. Players will receive a leather case, gem focus, or metal setting directly in their bank depending on the type of item being crafted. These three items can then be combined to make a summoning focus.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- On 26 November 2014, Mod Obeith stated in a reply to the questioning of the removal of Crafting Catalyst, leather case, gem focus and metal setting from RuneScape completely "Crafting Catalysts have been taken off of TH but the items won from there will not be removed. Therefore unused catalysts, uncombined focuses parts and the completed focuses will not be removed so you are free to keep them and use them when you want."[source needed]
- In chemistry, a catalyst is a substance that is used to increase the rate of a chemical reaction. This is reflected by how the crafting catalyst also increases the speed of crafting items.
