    Fastest routes to the Abyss.
    The inner ring of the Abyss.

    At average speed, one can do about 50 trips to the Death Altar via the Abyss per hour, using the amulet of glory to teleport back to Edgeville, and using an equipped pickaxe to mine through the rocks in the Abyss. You need to recharge your pouches every nine trips, at the Dark mage, to prevent the giant pouch from degrading.

    Using the small through giant essence pouches, you can hold up to 54 essence per trip. At 99 Runecraft, you can craft 2 death runes per essence, resulting in a profit of 13,500 coins per trip (ignoring other expenses). At lower Runecraft levels, profit will be lower, at 6,696 per trip. This assumes at least level 75 Runecraft. Below 75 Runecraft, profit will be 5,332 per trip.

    The Mage of Zamorak is located low-level Wilderness, near the source of the River Lum. This is a fairly safe area, but there might be player killers, so it is advised not to take expensive items on the trips to the Abyss. The best setup would be cheap but protective gear (e.g. dragonhides). Use of weight-reducing clothing and abyssal bracelets is also recommended. Players should also take an equipable emergency teleport to escape player killers. Inside the Abyss, the creatures there will be aggressive and might do fair amounts of damage. See Abyss#Inside the Abyss for more information on how to navigate the Abyss. Once inside, enter the death rift and craft the essence in your inventory and your pouches. Teleport back to Edgeville with an amulet of glory and repeat.

    Wearing a full set of Raiments of the Eye grants the player 60% additional runes when crafting death runes, adding to the profit made from this method. No additional experience is gained, however.

    A ring of dueling is optional, but it helps in case players forget to swap out an exhausted glory for a charged one. Once all the glory teleport charges run out, however, the player has two options to recharge the glories: teleport to Taverley or Burthorpe with a tab or games necklace, and recharge the amulets in the Fountain of Heroes. Alternatively, the player can use a Charge dragonstone jewellery scroll as they are quite cheap to buy should the player want to save time.

    The achievement diary cape is especially useful for runecrafting in the Abyss if the player has one. Teleport to Jarr at Shantay Pass for banking, then to the Lesser Fanatic to quickly reach the Abyss. Since an amulet of glory isn't needed for this method, the player could instead opt to wear a Desert amulet 4 and teleport to Nardah when necessary to replenish run energy hitpoints without the need for stamina potions and food.

    Assuming all pure essence is bought on the Grand Exchange for 2 coins each, you can make approximately 675,000 coins per hour using this method (ignoring other expenses). At lower levels, 334,800 per hour, and below level 75 Runecraft, 266,600 per hour.

    Check the live price and daily volume of items on the Grand Exchange before making large investments in any method.
