Large pouches are bags that can hold 9 rune essence or pure essence for use in the Runecrafting skill. This item requires level 50 Runecrafting to use. This item is dropped by monsters within The Abyss.
This is the second best runecrafting pouch after the giant pouch, and before the medium pouch and small pouch.
After it is used for the 31st and 40th time, this pouch will degrade and only hold 7 and 5 essence respectively. Further uses degrade the capacity even more. To repair the pouch so it can hold the maximum of nine essence again, you must speak to the dark mage located in the centre of the Abyss, who will repair your pouches for free. You may also use the NPC Contact Lunar spell to contact the dark mage to have them repaired.
Dropping the pouch while it contains essence will result in the essence in it being lost. A message will pop up that tells the player: “The contents of the pouch fell out as you dropped it!”.
During the Devious Minds quest, a large pouch is used to hold an orb. You will lose the pouch when you use it for the quest, so you will have to get another from the Abyss. The pouch must be in full condition to hold the orb, so if it is degraded, you must repair it before using it in the quest.
