Giant pouches are bags that can hold 12 of rune essence or pure essence for use in the Runecrafting skill. This item requires level 75 Runecrafting to use. This item is dropped by Abyssal monsters in the Abyss.
After enough use, the pouch degrades holds three less pure essence. Every two to three uses after results in an additional one less pure essence that the pouch can hold. It can be repaired by talking to Dark Mage either in person in the Abyss or through NPC Contact. The giant pouch, like its smaller variants, does not degrade if the player is wearing a Runecraft cape or Max cape when filling it.
The pouch degrades based on essence stored rather than how often it is used. Approximately 120-144 essence can be stored before it degrades, or 10–12 times 12. However, the number is inconsistent, so ideally the player should repair after every 9 times, to avoid storing less essence.
Note: The Giant Pouch is the largest of the four Runecrafting Pouches.
