The water obelisk.
A player charging a water orb.
The water obelisk is located on the Water Obelisk Island
. It can be reached by climbing the ladder near the black dragons in Taverley dungeon
. The obelisk is used to create a water orb
using the Charge Water Orb
spell (Level 56 magic
needed). A staff of water
another staff that gives free water runes is recommended to save on runes. Players may grapple
from the island to Catherby
A water orb is needed to craft a Water battlestaff. Water orbs are also used in Summoning when making Hydra pouches.
An effective route for charging multiple orbs is to bank in Catherby, grapple over White Wolf Mountain and head south to Taverly dungeon. Upon navigating the dungeon reaching the obelisk, the player can then charge, bank and repeat as required. This method requires a mithril grapple and any crossbow of mithril or higher quality, 39 ranged, 35 agility and 35 strength. Level 70 or 80 agility is very helpful for navigating Taverly dungeon more quickly.
