Golden Touch is a basic Magic ability unlocked by reading the Golden Touch ability codex, which can be made by combining 2,000 vital sparks. When used, for 60 seconds all monster drops below the lootbeam value will be converted into coins by the High Level Alchemy spell, without consuming runes.
The ability does not generate nor consume adrenaline, and deals no damage. It can be used during, and does not incur, the global cooldown. The ability has no animation. You do not need to be on the normal spellbook or carrying alchemy runes. Any non-alchemisable items will drop as normal. Most forms of teleportation will cancel the ability if it's active.
This ability replaced the golden touch sigil on 19 August 2019 when the sigil slot was removed. The ability costs twice as much to make as the sigil did, but the ability requires no upkeep, and can be used with other sigil abilities, unlike the degradable sigil.
