Large pouch detail.png

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.

Players may only own one large pouch at a time. Attempting to purchase additional pouches from Wizard Korvak will be unsuccessful; he will instead say "You already own a large pouch! Don't you know you'll unbalance the world by having two? Dogs will hate cats, mice will dance, and they will come for me. No, no pouch for you."

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, players may speak to the Dark mage located in the centre of the Abyss who will repair pouches for free, or to Wizard Korvak in the Runecrafting Guild who will repair the large pouch for 9,000 coins. Players may also use the Lunar spells NPC Contact to contact the Dark mage remotely or Repair Rune Pouch (unlocked from the Livid Farm minigame). Using median GE rune prices and no rune-saving staff, the cost of repairing pouches via the Repair Rune Pouch spell would be 1,364 coins.

Players with level 36 Archaeology can activate the Pouch Protector relic power at the mysterious monolith to prevent all pouches from degrading.

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 the player does not already own it but does own the small and medium pouches. Level 50 Runecrafting is not required 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. With the release of the Great Orb Project and the ability to buy pouches, this drawback has become less severe.
