The Winter storage scroll enables the use of the Winter storage special move for the Pack yak familiar. Winter storage scrolls are made by using Pack yak pouches on a Summoning obelisk, providing 0.1 Summoning experience and 10 Winter storage scrolls. If the Voice of Seren is active in the Amlodd District in Prifddinas, using the Prifddinas obelisk will give 12 scrolls per pouch.

Winter Storage[edit | edit source]

A player activating the pack yak's special, Winter Storage

Winter Storage is the special move for the pack yak, which when used on an item in the player's inventory, instantly banks it without the need for visiting a bank in person. This allows players to remotely bank items while remaining in a certain area for extended periods of time. When using the scroll on noted items only one item will be banked per scroll. The special move is also used while player killing because the special move can bank the gear of the player, thus not risking the items should they die. As the familiar lasts for 64 minutes, summoning the pack yak with a full special moves bar provides 1,980 special move points over the course of its lifespan, allowing you to potentially use the Winter storage scroll 165 times. In cases where one will acquire more than 165 drops within that one hour, alternative methods such as Magic notepaper may be necessary for banking in addition to the Pack yak.

Casting the spell Make Leather and crafting dragonhide bodies will allow the yak's inventory to hold 90 dragonhides' worth of dragonhide bodies, and so players wishing to train at Green or blue dragons may wish to use this method to bank all of the dragon bones and dragonhides that the dragons will drop. To maximise efficiency, players should use Winter storage to bank the bones immediately, cast Make Leather 3 times when 15 dragonhides are acquired, craft 5 dragonhide bodies and store them in the yak, then repeat the process.

Winter Storage may be used in low-level Wilderness to send items to the player's bank. However, it will not function in Wilderness level 30 or greater.

Winter Storage cannot be used to bank winter storage scrolls.
