Pouches hold rune essence or pure essence that is used for Runecrafting. Unfortunately, with use, your pouches will degrade, and if you won’t repair them in time, they will vanish.

You can repair your pouches for free by talking to the dark mage who’s located at the center of the Abyss. You can also repair them using the NPC Contact Lunar Spell.

How to Repair Pouches for Runecrafting in Old School RuneScape

There are two ways to repair pouches for runecrafting in Old School RuneScape.

One of the methods requires you to travel to the Abyss, while the other can be used from afar without the same risks. We’ve covered both below.

Heading to the Abyss

To begin repairing your pouches, you must head into the Abyss. You don’t need to have any pouches in your inventory to have them repaired; pouches that are stored in your bank will also be repaired.

First, teleport or walk to the center of Edgeville, then start heading north until you get to the wilderness ditch.

Enter the wilderness and head northeast until you find the Mage of Zamorak. Usually, he’ll be surrounded by skeletons.

Right-click on the Mage of Zamorak and select the “Teleport” option, upon which you’ll be teleported to the Abyss.

As soon as you teleport to the Abyss, you’ll start to get swarmed by enemies. Follow the east path until you find eyes.

Use your thieving skills to distract them. While they’re distracted, click on the tunnel that’s next to them. Doing this will teleport you to the other side of the wall.

Finding the dark mage

Once you’re on the other side of the wall, head north until you find the entrance of the center of the Abyss.

Upon going inside, you’ll find a dark mage. Right-click on him and select the “Repairs” option.

Upon selecting the “Repairs” option, all of your pouches will be repaired.

Repairing pouches with NPC Contact Lunar Spell

If going to the Abyss is not your cup of tea, then you may also repair the pouches by contacting the dark mage through the use of the NPC Contact Lunar spell.

Upon contacting the dark mage and going through his dialogue, you can ask him to repair your pouches.

Repairing your pouches through the NPC Contact Lunar spell is more ideal than the other option since it’s quicker, and you don’t have a risk of dying in the wilderness and losing everything.


That’s how you repair Runecrafting pouches in Old School RuneScape!
