Gold charm detail.png

A gold charm is the first- and lowest-tier charm of the four main types of charms used in the Summoning skill, and the only available in free-to-play, with no requirements to use. The amount of experience gained from creating Summoning pouches that use gold charms varies from 4.8 to 93.2 experience each, depending on the pouch being created.

Common ways to obtain gold charms are as a drop from various monsters, hunting charm sprites, and thieving Dorgesh-Kaan Rich Chests. Gelatinous abominations is one effective source for low-level players as they have a high drop rate and are easy to kill. It is possible to receive multiple charms in one drop from higher-level opponents.

Gold charms may also be purchased using Zeal points obtained from the Soul Wars minigame or by visiting Pikkupstix's Summoning Shop in Taverley for one free sample gold charm. Players will receive 275 gold charms upon completion of Wolf Whistle, which may be used to start training the skill.

Additionally, Spirit gems may be used to save these charms when creating pouches.

The Charming Imp may be used to automatically collect these charms.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Gold charms appear in Magestix and Pikkupstix's shop inventories, but they cannot be sold to them, and there is no stock of the item. There is a single free sample that can be taken, but it is an inefficient way to obtain them as it takes a long time to restock.
  • Gold charms were allowed for free players as of 4 March 2013, along with the release of The World Wakes. All other charms remain members only.
  • Troll Chuckers, Troll brutes and cows in Burthorpe are the only monsters that drop Gold charms on free-to-play worlds.
  • There was also a 'glitch' in the Dagannoth Lighthouse where there is a gold charm that is dropped but unobtainable; however, some speculate this is a counter measure to bots as they will click on the unobtainable charm for hours, although this is probably just a mistake.
