The large pouch is a members only pouch that can hold 9 rune or pure essence for use in the Runecrafting skill. It requires level 50 Runecrafting to use. This item is dropped by abyssal monsters or can be bought from Wizard Korvak in the Runecrafting Guild for 25,000 gold.
After it is used for the 31st and 40th time, this pouch will degrade and only hold 7 and 5 essence respectively. Further uses degrade the capacity even more. To repair the pouch so it can hold the maximum of nine essence again, you must speak to the dark mage located in the centre of the Abyss, who will repair your pouches for free, or Wizard Korvak in the Runecrafting Guild, who will repair your large pouch for 9,000 coins if you aren't comfortable going into the abyss. However, you may use the spell NPC Contact in the Lunar Magic Book to contact the Dark Mage to have them repaired as well. Alternatively if you have unlocked the spell Repair Rune Pouch from the Livid Farm minigame (whilst on the Lunar Spellbook), you can repair your pouch for the cost of casting that spell, which would be approximately 998 coins.
Many players tend to use this whilst at The Great Orb Project to store the essence they receive after a round ends. This is also vastly popular on World 36 for Nature Running when used with a medium and small pouch.

- The pouch is only dropped if you do not already own it and own the small and medium pouches. You do not need level 50 Runecrafting level to obtain it.
Quest issues[edit | edit source]
During the quest Devious Minds a large pouch is used to hold a sphere and is then lost, therefore you will have to get another, although with the release of the Great Orb Project and the ability to buy pouches, this drawback has become less severe.
