Pouches are bags that can hold varying amounts of rune essence or pure essence for use in the Runecrafting skill. Pouches are highly prized among runecrafters because they can be used to take larger loads when runecrafting and mining pure essence. Taking pouches to mine pure essence isn't required but is highly recommended for faster mining and less loads.

Pouches are dropped by monsters in the Abyss and the Abyssal Area

Note: If you drop a pouch with rune essence or pure essence inside, all of them will disappear from the pouch and are not retrievable. Multiple pouches CANNOT be obtained with the drop trick.
