Why Gamers Buy OSRS Orbs

Some of the orbs in OSRS can be extremely difficult to get, particularly ones obtained by completing the Nightmare as they fetch extremely high prices on the GE and the boss itself is incredibly though. One way in which players get these orbs is by buying them from online sellers so that they can avoid the challenge or gold farming required to get them.

All About Orbs in OSRS

Orbs are used to create four elemental orbs: air, earth, fire, and water orbs. Its base form is the Unpowered Orb, which can either be created at Crafting level 46 using Molten Glass, or be obtained from the following sources and their rarities related to the source:

  • Barrels in Viyeldi Caves - Common
  • Average chests in Dorgesh-Karaan – 1/20
  • Skeletons in Tarn’s Lair (requires level 42) – 1/42.6
  • Kraken – 1/64
  • Skeletal Wyvern – 1/64

In turn, these orbs are used to create elemental battlestaves, which not only provide unlimited runes of a particular element, but also give the autocast option, and has higher melee staff bonuses.

Creating elemental orbs is simple: players just have to learn the necessary Charge Orb spell related to that particular element. This will turn an unpowered orb in their inventory into the orb of the element wanted. For this, players need an uncharged orb, level 66 Magic if they want to craft all of them, and to be on the respective elemental obelisk. Two of the obelisks are found in areas Edgeville and Taverley Dungeons that correspond to the element, specifically the following:

  • Charge Air Orb – above Edgeville Dungeon
  • Charge Earth Orb – Wilderness Area of Edgeville Dungeon
  • Charge Fire Orb – deep in the Taverley Dungeon, past the water obelisk and two black dragons in the dungeon’s main floor
  • Charge Water Orb – an island in Catherby Bay, which can only be accessed by a ladder in the Taverley Dungeon

Here are the level requirements to create OSRS elemental orbs:

  • Water – Level 56
  • Earth – Level 60
  • Fire – Level 63
  • Air – Level 66

With these orbs, battlestaves can be created. Once created, it’s up to the player whether they want to keep and use these themselves or sell them on the Grand Exchange for profit.

On the other hand, there are also other kinds of orbs which are unrelated to elemental orbs and making battlestaves. The most similar among them is the harmonised orb, a rare orb that can only be obtained from The Nightmare, and can only be attached to the Nightmare Staff, which is also only obtainable from the same namesake enemy. This creates the Harmonised Nightmare Staff, which requires level 75 Magic and 50 Hitpoints to equip. It allows the wielder to autocast standard spells, and increases attack by 4. Both the staff and the orb fetch quite the price because of their rarity as well.

Finally, there’s the Orb of Light and the Light Orb. The former is used in the Underground Pass quest, while the latter is used to fix magical lamps in Dorgesh-Kaan, and is created by combining a Goblin Cave Wire and an Empty Light Orb. However, because the Empty Light Orb is untradeable, players will need to get an Orb of Light themselves.
