At average speed, one can do about 60 trips to the fire altar via the Abyss per hour, using the Wilderness sword 3 to teleport back to Edgeville, and using the tool belt items to mine through the rocks in the abyss. You need to recharge your pouches every 7 to 9 trips, to prevent the giant pouch from degrading.

Using the small through giant Runecrafting pouches, and an Abyssal titan, you can hold up to 74 essence per trip, resulting in a profit of 28,564 coins per trip.

The Mage of Zamorak is located in low-level wilderness, near the source of the River Lum. This is a fairly safe area, but there might be player killers so it is advised not to take expensive items on the trips to the abyss. It is also a good idea to use a less-populated world. The best setup would be cheap but protective gear. Inside the abyss, the creatures will be aggressive and might do a fair amount of damage. See Abyss#Strategy for more information on how to navigate the abyss. Once inside, enter the fire rift and craft the essence in your inventory and your pouches. Teleport back to Edgeville with an amulet of glory and repeat.

Wearing Explorer's ring 2 or higher grants a 10% chance to craft an extra rune, also giving extra experience. Not wearing the ring results in a loss of 7,770(10,878) experience and 63,492 coins per hour.
