Data I've collected about Runecrafting pouches:



Giant Pouch




Large Pouch




Medium Pouch




Small Pouch




Some conclusions can be derived from this data:



[*:3ll8kths]When a pouch can no longer decay any further, it is destroyed

[*:3ll8kths]The rate in which a pouch decays does not follow any geometric pattern

[*:3ll8kths]Each pouch is independent when determining the rate in which they decay (Using all 4 pouches will decay a Giant pouch at the same rate as if it were to be used alone).

[*:3ll8kths]The rate in which a pouch decays is based on number of essence put in said pouch, not the amount of clicks. Therefore, you could fill a Giant pouch 120 times by putting 1 essence at a time, or you could fill it completely 10 times.

[*:3ll8kths]The first values in which a pouch degrades remains constant (Giant is 120 essence, Large is 261 essence, Medium is 270 essence). Further decaying has shown to have a precision error of several whole numbers (Eg. Giant pouch first level of decay, or 75%/9 essence has shown to decay to the second level of decay, or 66.7%/8 essence, at either 18 essence [2 fills] or 27 [3 fills]

[*:3ll8kths]It is inferred that the reason Small pouches don't decay is because the decay value would result in only 1 essence being held, therefore making said pouch obsolete.

Wow, well done! Good research, and pretty cool to look at.

I never had one of my small pouches decay, but my large one does all the time :(



I don't see this as insanely useful but cool :) 10/10 for Effort.

Definetely A for effort. Good job, this was interesting to know. Somewhat trivial to know all the details, but still.

You destroyed your giant pouch to write this guide. Awesome :D



Good to know, now let's see if I can get myself to repair my giant pouch every 10th run.

For the advancement of general knowledge 10/10 :thumbup:



Its interesting to note that there's no math involved, but I guess jagex doesn't want to complicate everything into higher math when a simple decreasing for-loop will suffice.



Oh, and thanks for that little side note on the small pouch... the implication was not necessary but appreciated.

I read through most of it and it looks like this took awhile for you to collect. THis will help me when I need to runecraft later on.



You would make a good PMG mod. :D
