Summoning is a new skill which involves creating pouches so you can have familiars that can fight alongside you or assist you in skills or another way. Summoning is a Combat skill, from 1 to 96 you will gain 12 Combat levels. As well as familiars you can also have pets, similar to Cats you got from the Gertrude's Cat quest. To start the Summoning Skill you need to complete the Wolf Whistle Quest, this will also get you up exactly to level 4 Summoning, similar to Herblore and the Druidic Ritual quest.

[edit] Basics

[edit] Making Pouches And Scrolls

To make pouches you need to take the required items to a charged summoning obelisk and use the obelisk, now simply select the Pouch you wish to make. To make the scroll, select the scolls section on the obelisk and select the scroll you wish, the only item you require for the scroll is the pouch of the same familiar. You get 10 scrolls per pouch.

[edit] Familiar Basics

To summon the familiars, simply select the summon option on the pouch of the familiar you wish to summon. This will bring it out. You can't have a pet out at the same. Now in the bottom left corner of you interface you will see a wolf's head icon. Click on it. This will bring up the Summoning Interface.

Summoning Interface

This will tell you:

  • How much Special power your familiar has left.
  • The amount of scrolls you have with you.
  • How many summoning points you have left.
  • How long you have left until your familiar goes.

It will also give you three buttons that you can press:

Call Familiar

  • This allows you to call your familiar if he has got stuck behind an item, it will appear behind you. Also if you press this during combat in a multi-combat zone the familiar will join in fighting with you.

Take Items From Beast Of Burden

  • This allows you to take items stored in certain familiars that either obtain resources for you or can be used to store more things that you give it.

Dismiss Familiar

  • This allows you to get rid of your familiar if you no longer require it, make sure you don't get rid of it by accident though.

[edit] Charged Obelisk Locations

These are very important for Summoning as without them you wouldn't be able to create pouches. There are seven of these obelisks across Runescape. The most commonly used it the one in Taverley as it is easy to access, quite close to a bank and all members can find their way there easily.

[edit] Charms

Before you can really get started in the Summoning Skill you need some charms. You receive 275 Gold Charms for completing Wolf Whistle.The main way to get charms is by killing monsters. Many people obtain charms through Slayer or killing Bork. You can also receive some from thieving chests at Dorgesh Kaan. It is believed that the easiness of obtaining is as follows: Gold, Green, Crimson, Blue. There are also some charms that are used as secondary items, these are: Abyssal, Obsidian, Talon Beast, Ravager, Spinner, Shifter, Torcher.

[edit] Pouches And Spirit Shards

As well as a certain charm, all familiars require an empty pouch and a certain amount of spirit shards, you can buy both of these from the Summoning stores, pouches are 1gp each and spirit shards are 25gp each, you may be able to pick up large amounts of shards off the Runescape Official Forums for slightly less, 22 or 23gp, as long as you buy the amount the seller wants to sell.

[edit] Trading Pouches For Shards

In Gu'Tannoth you can exchange your pouches for 70% of the shards required to make that pouch. To do this you must go to Bogrog who is at the Summoning obelisk there. However you require a certain level to exchange you pouches for the shards, the minimum is level 21. The basic mathematics to this is that the pouch you have starts at 11 and the level to get the shards is 21. From this per level higher the pouch is than 11 you add 9/10ths of a level onto the level you require to exchange this pouch for the shards.

Level Required To Make Pouch Level Required To Exchange For Shards

31 39
41 48
51 57
61 66

[edit] Scrolls

After making pouches, you can turn these into scrolls that allow you to perform the corresponding familiar's special move. You require nothing extra to do this aside from the pouch of the familiar you wish to make into a scroll. To make scrolls you simply go to a charged obelisk and select the scrolls section then select the scroll that you want.

* Controlled gives experience to attack, strength and defence.
** These bonuses are invisible so won't show up on your stats, these don't mean you can access higher levelled uses of the skill, they just improve the success of what you do in the skill.

[edit] Pets

Pets have very little use except to show off. They can either follow you, go in your inventory or in your bank. They start as babies and grow up slowly. Whilst they are babies they may run away if their hunger gets too high, some adults will also. You can only have one pet out at a time. At first you can only have 1 pet in total, after every 10 Summoning levels you can get another. Some pets come in more than one colour. To find the incubator go to Taverley Pet Shop.

[edit] Headgear

Head gear can be used to store 1 type of scrolls in them to save an inventory space.

[edit] Special Headgear

These are headgear that were introduced specifically for Summoning.

Picture Headgear Summon Level Required Obtained By Scrolls Stored
Antlers Antlers 10 Buy from Summoning Shops 40
Lizard Skull Lizard Skull 20 Buy from Summoning Shops 65
Feather Headdress Feather Headdress 30 Use feathers with a coif 150

[edit] Other Headgear

These are normal pieces of headgear that can be charged to hold scrolls, they are more expensive than the special ones and hold less scrolls but are useful in combat as they hold the same stats as the normal version, whilst the special headgear has very little defence bonus. To get your headgear charged see Pikkupstix, however these charged are untradable, but Pikkupstix will uncharge them again if you ask him.

Picture Headgear Summon Level Required Scrolls Stored
Adamant Full Helmet Adamant Full Helmet 20 50
Slayer Helmet Slayer Helmet 20 50
