Spellbook Swap

The Spellbook Swap spell is one of the Lunar spells that can be used after completion of Dream Mentor. This spell gives the caster the ability to switch to another spellbook that they have access to and cast one spell from it. When a player casts the spell, they are presented with a choice of the spellbooks they have access to. When they select one, the runes for this spell are spent, experience is granted for it, and the player has two minutes to cast one spell from the selected spellbook. They will return to the Lunar spellbook once they cast one spell from their selected spellbook or if two minutes have passed.

The spell can be useful for combining teleport spells from different spellbooks. The occasional High Alchemy of valuable slayer monster drops is also useful. This spell also opens the Lunar spellbook to offensive capabilities from the other types of magic, although with a much reduced frequency.

With a requirement of 96 Magic, tied with Ghorrock Teleport for the highest Magic requirement of all spells, this option is available only to very high level players. Spellbook Swap is often used for activities consisting of many teleports around Gielinor, such as farm runs and Treasure Trails.

Although very expensive, it can be a very good training method to cast Spellbook Swap and cast High Level Alchemy afterwards, gaining 195 total experience from casting both spells.

Remember, you cannot use normal Magic or Ancient Magicks spells if you are using Lunar spells, except by use of the Spellbook Swap spell.
