Just confirming if I'm right about the summoning skill


Recommended Posts

One of my upcoming RuneScape related videos will be on why I hate the summoning skill. And I wanna make sure everything I say is 100% accurate.

 

Now I did try the summoning skill some time before I left RuneScape, and my distaste for it still stands.

 

The main issue I had with the skill back then is the fact that I had to buy the shards to make the pouches all on my own. And the money I spent buying these is more than the high alchemy value of the pouches. And there was no way I knew of to gather these on my own without having to spend money.

 

Is everything I say accurate? I want to avoid making a video with false information that's why I made this thread.

Yeah I'm prretty sure you are right. I don't think there is any way to gather shards or any monsters that drop them. You have to spend money to train Summoning, generally speaking, in addition to gathering the charms.

You can trade in the pouches to Bogrog which returns 70% of the shards used the pouch, which is worth more than the alchemy value.

This.

 

High alching pouches is a plain bad idea.

There are a good amount of pouches that sell for more than they cost to make in the GE and any that don't you turn in at Bogrog which heavily offsets the cost of shards.

 

Essentially if you are making a pouch that requires 100 shards you only have to buy 100 shards per pouch for the first lot.

You then get 70 shards per pouch back thus making future pouches only need 30 shards to be bought.

 

Also writing off an entire skill based on it being intentionally a bit of a money sink to train is insane - many familiars are extremely useful thanks to their skill boosting properties, item carrying functions or combat uses.

Additionally, exchanging pouches at Lord Amlodd after Hard Tasks of Tirannwn tasks provide 10% additional shards.

Yeah, you're right with the last paragraph. I am gonna do further research on the skill before I make a video about it.
