Giant pouches are bags that can hold 12 of rune, pure or daeyalt essence for use in the Runecraft skill. This item requires level 75 Runecraft to use. This item is dropped by Abyssal monsters in the Abyss.

After enough use, the pouch degrades and holds three less pure essence. Every two to three uses after results in an additional one less pure essence that the pouch can hold. It can be repaired by talking to Dark mage either in person in the Abyss or through NPC Contact. The giant pouch, like its smaller variants, does not degrade if the player is wearing a Runecraft cape or max cape when filling it.

The pouch degrades based on essence stored rather than how often it is used. Approximately 120-144 essence can be stored before it degrades, or 10–12 times 12. However, the number is inconsistent, so ideally the player should repair after every 9 times, to avoid storing less essence.

The giant pouch is the largest of the four runecraft pouches.

The pouch is only dropped if the player does not already have one in their inventory or bank, and lower-tiered pouches are owned. The Runecraft level (75) is not necessary to have in order for the pouch to be dropped.

(update | poll)

Runecrafting pouches will no longer degrade if a Runecrafting skillcape or Max cape is worn while filling the pouch. Existing pouches which are degraded will not be repaired in any way with this change, but they will also not degrade any further whilst a Runecrafting skillcape or Max cape is worn.
