Starting Off

  • Follow the River Lum north from Misthalin until you reach the Mage of Zamorak; he wanders around Level 4-7 Wilderness. Talk to him and he will explain to you that it is too dangerous to talk in the Wilderness. He wants you to meet him back at Varrock. Note that he will not talk to you if you are wearing Saradomin or Guthix items.
  • Head back to Varrock and find him located at the Zamorak Chaos Temple (South-east of Aubury's Rune Shop). Talk to him there and then ask him where he gets his runes from when the question is available. He will tell you about the Abyss and that he is having problems. Say that you will help him.

Getting the readings

  • Travel to and from the Rune Essence Mine from three of the five locations.
  • When you are done, go back to the Chaos Temple in Varrock. Speak to the Zamorakian Mage and he will give you 1,000 Runecrafting experience, an Abyssal book and a small pouch, used to hold 3 rune essence. Then speak to him again; He will tell you this is not the place to talk, then says "meet me back in the wild, you remember the place."
  • Travel back to the Wilderness and talk to him again. He will warn you about the monsters and perils that roam the Abyss. Request to teleport to the Abyss and you complete the miniquest.


  • Ability to enter the Abyss
  • 1000 experience
  • A Small pouch (available to carry more pure essence or rune essence)
