The profit rate assumes 140 trips per hour (~25 second trips to the Earth Altar). Your actual profit rate may be higher or lower depending on your speed although 160 trips can be achieved.

Inventory includes:

Start at the TzHaar Fight Cave bank via the TokKul-Zo and fill your inventory by filling the Massive pouch over the bank interface (may be aided by an external screen marker program) and then withdrawing the essence to fill the inventory and Beast of Burden. Next fill the remaining pouches from your inventory and Beast of Burden. Bank presets and keybinds are required and greatly (!) reduce the time needed to around 4 seconds depending on your connection delay to the server (one should prefer a server with low ping here). Directly afterwards activate the Lumber Yard Teleport tablet and Surge south to the Earth altar, craft your runes and teleport back using the TokKul-Zo. Repeat. Do not try to refill your pouches if you have made a mistake as the time lost more than decompensates the essences won. Trip durations of less than 25 seconds are easily possible and used for calculations in this guide. The Combined Catalyst fragment and set effect of the Infinity ethereal outfit both reduce the degradation rate of pouches by 50% and stack resulting in all pouches (including Massive pouches) having quadruple capacity before degrading. Massive pouches are therefore required for this method.

Since the buy limit of pure essence and air runes can be reached in well under two hours they should be stockpiled beforehand if one considers crafting dust runes over several hours. It is also possible to work around the limit by directly trading with other players, or by using alternate accounts.

It is also possible to use greater runic staff and charge it with Magic Imbue to store one more pure essence, thus crafting one more dust rune per trip.

If you have Teleport Tokens for your wicked hood, you can teleport to the Earth altar with your wicked hood. You will have a limited but generous number of these per day which can also increase output and profit if utilised.
