1.0 - Introduction
The Abyss is a domain where portals to all runecrafting altars can be found. To be able to enter the Abyss, you need to complete a miniquest for the Mage of Zamorak, found just north of Edgeville. The Abyss is a very easy way to gain fast runecrafting experience using the higher level runes, but it is also dangerous what with all the PKers hanging out-front. So if you wish to face that danger for faster runecrafting experience, keep reading.
2.0 - Requirements
- Level 51 Magic (Ardougne Teleport).
3.0 - Accessing the Abyss
1) Begin by heading north of Edgeville, following the river until you reach the Mage of Zamorak. Talk to the Mage and he will tell you it is too dangerous to talk in the Wilderness and to meet him at the Chaos Temple in Varrock.
Strategy: Walk east across the bridge, then make your way into the Wilderness and head back west across the tops of the hills to have a clear view of any pkers.
2) Make your way to the south of Varrock's eastern bank, and speak to the Mage of Zamorak in the Chaos Temple. Ask him where he gets his runes from, and he will tell you about the Abyss.
3) He will ask you if you could help him and you should answer yes. After answering, the Zamorakian Mage will give you a Scrying Orb. He will tell you then that you need to teleport to three different rune essence mines whilst carrying the Orb.
4) Now the three easiest rune essence teleports are located in Varrock, the Wizard Tower south of Draynor Village and in Ardougne. If you wish, however, you can also teleport to through two other methods: talking to Brimstail in his cave in the Tree Gnome Stronghold, located south-west of the Grand Tree, or using the Magic Guild.
Strategy: Teleport to the rune essence from the rune shop in Varrock first, then teleport to Draynor with an amulet of glory and run to the Wizard Tower, finally teleport to Ardougne and enter the rune essence mine there.
6) Teleport back to Varrock and return to the Chaos Temple and speak with the Mage of Zamorak. He will reward you for your efforts with 1000 runecrafting experience and the ability to use the abyss. Finish the conversation and talk to the Mage of Zamorak again to get actual access to the Abyss.
7) Teleport to Edgeville by using your amulet of glory and return to the Mage in the Wilderness again. Right click on him and use the Teleport Abyss option to enter the Abyss.
