Large pouch (degraded) detail.png

Large pouches are bags that can hold 9 rune, pure, daeyalt, or guardian essence for use in the Runecraft skill. This item requires level 50 Runecraft to use. This item is dropped by monsters within the Abyss.

This is the third best essence pouch after the Colossal pouch, giant pouch, and before the medium pouch and small pouch.

After it is used for the 31st and 40th time, this pouch will degrade and only hold 7 and 5 essence respectively. Further uses degrade the capacity to only 3 and eventually WILL VANISH on continuous use if not repaired.

To repair the pouch so it can hold the maximum of nine essence again, you must speak to the dark mage located in the centre of the Abyss, who will repair your pouches for free. You may also use the NPC Contact Lunar spell to contact the dark mage to have them repaired.

Dropping the pouch while it contains essence will result in the essence in it being lost. A message will pop up that tells the player: "The contents of the pouch fell out as you dropped it!".

During the Devious Minds quest, a large pouch can be used to hold an orb. You will lose the pouch when you use it for the quest, so you will have to get another from the Abyss. The pouch must be in full condition to hold the orb, so if it is degraded, you must repair it before using it in the quest.

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 (50) is not necessary to have in order for the pouch to be dropped.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
8 November 2018

The degraded pouch was graphically updated to distinguish it from the regular version.

18 May 2017

Shift-clicking now empties the pouch instead of dropping it.

23 February 2017
(update | poll)

Essence 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.
