Uses[edit | edit source]

An unpowered orb is used to make enchanted orbs by casting an enchantment spell on the corresponding Obelisk using the Magic skill, creating an air orb, water orb, earth orb, or fire orb, which can then be attached to a battlestaff with the Crafting skill to make an air, water, earth, or fire battlestaff. This can be used as a popular yet very expensive method of quickly training Crafting.
