# Summoning pouches

Summoning pouches are used to summon familiars using the Summoning skill. Familiars can be summoned by clicking a summoning pouch the inventory.

#### Creating Summoning pouches

A Summoning pouch is created by players by infusing an empty pouch with several various other items. Summoning pouches can also be purchased on the General Exchange. The items /category of items used to create a summoning pouch are as follows:

Note that pouches that use Elder charms don't use spirit shards, but Elder energy instead.

#### Destruction and Exchanging of Summoning Pouches

Summoning pouches can be alchemised. The High Level Alchemy value is usually directly related to the number of shards: ${\displaystyle H=15S+254}$ , however certain newer pouches and pouches that don't use spirit shards do not follow this formula.

The Bogrog shard swap column shows the cost of the shards swapped for comparison with Hi-alch or GE Price; it is usually better to Hi-alch or sell on GE with lower amounts of shard except for some of the higher levels where a player can save money by swapping with Bogrog. Players can swap pouches with Bogrog at a set percentage of the shards used to create the pouch in the first place. See the article on Bogrog for more information. The number of shards swapped is 70% of the number used in creation. The value is 25 coins per shard saved by swapping with Bogrog instead of buying new shards.
