The skull sceptre (i) is obtained by showing a skull sceptre and a pair of fancy or fighting boots to Solztun, who is found at the very end of the Stronghold of Security. In addition, players must have the RuneScape Authenticator active on their account in order to have the sceptre imbued. The boots do not have to be in your inventory.
While imbued, it will not break upon depleting all its charges. It can be recharged with sceptre pieces: each piece will grant three teleport charges, and the combined pieces (strange skull and runed sceptre) will grant six charges.
The sceptre can hold a maximum of 5 charges by default. Once the player has completed the easy, medium, hard and elite Varrock Diary, the sceptre can hold 7, 9, 11 and 13 charges respectively.
If a player plans on regularly making use of the teleport ability of the sceptre, then they will need to farm many sceptre pieces in order to recharge it. Minotaurs, flesh crawlers, catablepon and ankou are the four monsters that drop sceptre pieces, and they all have a 3 in 100 (3%) of dropping their particular piece. Thus, the most efficient method is to kill the level 12 minotaurs found on the first level of the Stronghold of Security, as they have the lowest hitpoints and therefore can be killed the fastest.
A different method is to kill the Flesh Crawlers found on the second sublevel, as they are always aggressive to the player, regardless of their combat level. Together with them only having 25 hitpoints, this makes for a low-intensity way of getting sceptre pieces.
The skull sceptre (i) is lost upon death and disappears.
Warning: should players disable the Authenticator, the sceptre will revert back to a regular skull sceptre.
