Medium pouches are bags that can hold 6 rune, pure, daeyalt, or guardian essence for use in the Runecraft skill. This item requires level 25 Runecraft to use. This item is dropped by Abyssal monsters. It is also a reward from the Temple of the Eye quest if one hasn't been obtained prior.
This is the fourth best essence pouch that can be obtained.
After its 44th use, the pouch will degrade and hold only 3 essence. Further uses degrade the capacity even more, and it will eventually disintegrate completely, and must be reacquired thereafter. To repair the pouch so it can hold the maximum of six essence again, you must speak to the Dark mage located in the centre of the Abyss. Cordelia is also able to repair essence pouches at a cost of one abyssal pearl, though this service requires 25 abyssal pearls to unlock first.
Essence contained in the pouch when it's dropped will be lost. A message will pop up and tell the player: "The contents of the pouch fell out as you dropped it!".

Item sources[edit | edit source]
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 (25) is not necessary to have in order for the pouch to be dropped.
Changes[edit | edit source]

|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.
