1.0 – Introduction
» In a previous post, I showed how you could make money by Swapping Pouches for Shards. Now I’m going to show you how to make money by making pouches into scrolls for Scrolls. Overall, this method is more profitable.
» In order to make a fair amount of money by this method you’ll need a pretty high summoning level – usually the higher your Summoning, the more money you’ll be able to make. If you have around 70 Summoning you can expect to gain between 800K-1M per hour and if you have around 80-99 Summoning you can expect anywhere from 1-2.5M profit per hour.

2.0 – The Basics
» A Pouch can be made into 10 scrolls at any Summoning Obelisk as long as you have the Summoning level required to make the pouch. The value of the 10 scrolls is often greater than the value of the pouch; hence, you can make money by swapping the pouch for the scrolls and then selling the scrolls.
Take for example: Bunyip Pouches
- 68 Summoning is required to create the pouch so, likewise, 68 Summoning is what is required to make it into scrolls.
- The price of the Pouch is 2,105 gp (on 26 January 2010). The price of the 10 Scrolls you get by Swapping at an obelisk is 2,460 gp (see image below). Thus 355gp is gained for each pouch you exchange for Scrolls.
- If you use the Kyatt method (see ‘Tips and Tricks’ below), you can do roughly 90 runs per hour of 28 pouches each, which comes out to 2520 pouches per hour.
–> 355 gp per pouch X 2520 pouches per hour = 894,600 profit per hour <--
3.0 – Finding the Best Pouch
Obviously, you want to find the pouch that makes you the most money. Here’s how:
1. Open up Runescape Wiki’s Pouch –> Scrolls calculator in a new tab.
2. Look on the far right side of the page where it says profit/loss.
3. Choose the pouch which gains the most profit and don’t forget that it must be one which you have a high enough summoning level to swap. In the case above^ the best pouch would be Unicorn Stallion Pouches (that is, if you have 88 Summoning or higher)
Or, you can view my Spreadsheet below, which does all the nasty work for you. You can download it if you want but it might not automatically update from the Runescape GE Database so it’s probably best that you just view it here.
» If you have a high summoning level, you can often find ones that’ll bring 800gp or more profit each, which adds up to around 2m profit per hour.

4.0 – Tips and Tricks
» When training Summoning, check if the pouches you’re creating are worth more in scrolls. If they are, then make them into scrolls immediately after creating them. It takes up hardly any time and can significantly reduce the expenses of training Summoning.
» As soon as you get 57 Summoning, start using the Kyatt to obelisk method to maximize the number or pouches you can do per hour. The method is simple: summon a Spirit Kyatt, use the teleport option and it will teleport you close to an obelisk, run to the obelisk (you have to go down a ladder), use the obelisk to swap the pouches for scrolls and, finally, use a ring of duelling to teleport to castle wars. Repeat this over and over and you can swap around 2,520 pouches per hour.
5.0 – Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you get any exp for making Pouches into Scrolls?
» A: Yes, but not much. Depending on the pouch you do, you’ll make anywhere from 1k-10k exp per hour. See Runescape Wiki for their complete list of how much exp you gain from swapping each pouch.

Runescape Wiki: for their awesome calculators.
Just buy Glories for 1.5K under market price on GE, charge w/Geyser Titan (lvl 89 summoning required), and sell for 1K over market price. 2.5K profit per glory. Note that you can only buy upto 600 glories per day on the GE, so 2.5K profit X 600 glories per day = 1.5m total profit
Kingdom Management Guide
Requirements - You must have finished the Throne of Miscellania Quest.
Reccomended - about 1m GP, but if you have less you can still do it, you just won’t make as much profit. Royal Trouble Quest, once you finish this quest you get like 50% more profit. Also, Fremmenik Sea Boots 2+ are nice because with them you can get your approval rating up twice as fast.
Getting there - The Fastest way is by using the Fairy Rings (the code is CIP), or you could just walk/teleport to Relleka and take the boat to get there.
How it works - Talk to Advisor Ghrim who is on the second floor of the Castle of Miscellania. Put your money into coffers -usually I put about 1.5M into it. Go outside and get your approval rating rating to 100. The fastest way to get your approval rating up is to mine coal at the mineto the northwest; raking weeds is the second best thing to do.
Everyday the money that you have in your coffers will be divided by ten. If you have done only the Throne of Miscellania quest, the most that will be spent is 50K. However, if you have also done the Royal Trouble Quest the most that will be spent is 75K. So, for example, if you had 400K in the coffers, then 10% would be used (40K) to buy resources. If you had 4M in, even though 10% is 400K, only 50K would be spent (or 75K if you’ve done the Royal Trouble Quest)
Here are the Resources that you can spend your money on, how much each one costs, and the random items you also receive w/them.
Maple logs – 51.6 GP each, you receive one bird’s nest every 100 logs.
*Teak logs – 166.1 GP each, you receive one bird’s nest every 350 logs.
*Mahogany logs - 224.6 GP each, you recieve one bird’s nest every 350 logs.
Coal – 91.6 GP each, you receive one Gem every 150 coal.
Flax – 40 GP each, you receive one herb seed every 600 Flax.
**Herbs - 826.4 each, you receive one herb seed every 100 Herbs.
***Fishing - Tuna 56.3 GP each, Swordfish 189.4 GP each, you recieve 1 Gem or Casket every 50 Tuna and random items like lvl 1 clue scrolls, loop or key halves of crystal keys, and fremmennik clothing.
*Royal Trouble Quest required to buy these resources.
** You will never get Guam, Marrentil, Toadflax, Snapdragon, or Torsol.
*** You get 10 tuna for every 3 swordfish you buy, Example : 500 tuna and 150 Swordfish
-My favorites are Flax and Fishing, but some people like doing Maple logs because of all the birds nests and possible tree seeds that come in them, Mining is alright too…
To give you an idea of how much you make everyweek – if you use 75K a day then 75K x 7 = 525K. If 2 thirds of it was spent on Flax and 1 third on Coal, you would get 8,750 Flax, 1910 Coal, 14 herb seeds and 12 Gems. 8,750 X *86 = 752,500 GP, 1910 coal X *177 = 338,070 GP, and then maybe another 50K from the herb seeds and Gems. Add them all together and… 752,500 GP + 338,070 GP +50K = 1,140,57. Subtract the money you spent buying the resources 1,140,570 – 525K = 615,570 GP profit per week!
*price as of 1/15/09
Joke: Two atoms are drinking at the bar. Suddenly one says to the other,
“I’ve just lost one of my electrons!”
“Are you sure?” asks the other.
“Yes,” replied the first atom. “I’m positive.”
How to make money using the Farming Skill
Level 9 Farming, with higher Farming level being a benefit!
Completion of My Arm’s Big Adventure Quest – for access to additional herb spot
Completion of Fairy Tale Part I Quest – for Magic Secateurs
Completion of Ghost Ahoy Quest – for Ectophial
Completion of Lumbridge Achievement Diary Medium- For Explorer Ring (3)
Farming is a skill that requires very little attention, but can yield up very easy profit
It’s all from herbs – taking the time to plant the seeds in all the patches and then harvesting and selling!
The minimum I’ve ever gotten from an herb patch (not counting herbs that have died) is 4, the maximum I’ve gotten is 12. Average seems to be around 6-8.
6-8 herbs may not seem like much, but remember you can get access to -five- herb patches, allowing for ~35 herbs to be harvested.
Examine the GE price of seeds, and the herbs you’ll be growing.
Profit per seed = (Number Herbs Grown)*(Herb Price) – (Seed Price)
Here’s an example of the profit for seeds (I used the average of 6 herbs grown):
Ranarr: 23k Seed, 6.4k herb ——-> ~15k profit per patch
Snapdragon: 35.6k Seed, 7.9k herb —–> ~11k profit per patch
Toadflax: 462 Seed, 2.2k herb —-> ~13k profit per patch
Since there are five patches… that’s 75k just for having the Farming level and spending a few minutes to plant the seeds! And planting the seeds is very quick and easy if you plan out what you need. Here is an example of my Herb Trip:
Ectophial, 5 Law Runes, 2 Fire Runes, 2 Water Runes, Seed Dipper, Spade
Explorer Ring (3), Magic Secateurs/Air Staff when teleporting, Nature Amulet, Glory Amulet (if Explorer Ring unavailable)
-Empty the Ectophial and head west, past the farm to that herb patch.
-Use the Cabbage Ring teleport and head north to that farming patch (or Glory to Draynor)
-Teleport to Ardougne, head to north Ardougne bank and bank herbs.
-Head north out of the bank, and east, to that farming patch.
-[IF My Arm's quest completed] Teleport to Trollheim, make your way into the Troll Stronghold, then south into the room, and north up the ladder.
-Teleport to Camelot and head to Catherby’s plot.
-Herbs grow in ~75 minutes, so you can do one of these runs every hour and 1/4 or so!
-Use super compost, it increases the yield and lessens the chance of herbs dying.
-Wielding the Magic Secateurs or Nature Amulet while harvesting increases yield 10%. (That’s like an extra herb!)
-Stock up on super compost; purchase Pineapple from Arhein everyday (the guy at Catherby docks) and put 15 pineapple in the compost bin at Catherby whenever you can!
Joke: Did you hear about the movie “constipated?” … it never came out.
-Money to purchase familiar pouches
-A Summoning level related to the pouch you want to trade (see Table below)
|Pouch Lvl —>||Summoning lvl to swap|
What to do –
1. Go to the Summoning Pouches page on Runescape Wiki (you can find on Google by searching “Summoning Pouches” and it’s first one, rather than clicking the link from my Blog every time :D.)
2. On this page, look through the list for any pouches that have a higher “Bogrog shard swap” value than the “Ge Price” (make sure you have a high enough Summoning Level to swap by looking at the Table above ^)
3. When you find a good one, go to the Grand Exchange and put in an offer for it. Don’t forget that some pouches take longer to buy than others, if they take too long it might be best to try a different pouch. You can get at most 5K of one kind of pouch every 4 hours on the Grand Exchange.
Or, you can skip steps 1-3 and just look at my spreadsheet below which automatically finds the best pouches for you. Remember, too, that if you can buy for below Market Price you get extra profit – sometimes a lot extra.
4. Head to Bogrog, the ogre who manages the Gu’Tanoth Summoning obelisk (see map below for instructions on getting there) and swap your pouches (can be noted) for shards. You will get 70% of the shards that are required make the pouch, so if it takes 150 shards to make one pouch, you would get 105 since that’s 70%.
5. Sell your shards back at Pet Shop – There’s one in Taverly and one in Yanille. You get the full price (25GP) for the shards. There’s a Sell All option but it really only lets you sell 50K shards a time… not too bad though.
Here’s me doing Pyrelord Pouches – I made 80gp each on 30k so that was 2.4M profit
Only took like a minute to sell all of them.
