From the news post:

Rune pouches
Rune Pouches can now be crafted from materials found in the Abyss. While runecrafting in the Abyss, youĺll obtain magical threads which can be used to create both small and large rune pouches. The rate of obtaining threads scales alongside runecrafting level and will be affected by the effects of the Demonic Skull.

The small pouch uses 30 threads and requires 55 runecrafting to craft.
The large pouch uses 100 threads and requires 90 runecrafting to craft.

I have over 130m RC xp, and I'm wearing a demonic skull, crafting blood, death and nature runes.

I will 'occasionally' get 1 magical thread.

How is getting 1 thread (not even threads) occasionally, scaled to your RC level and influenced by the Demonic Skull? It seems it's more influenced by the mechanic of choice just lately, RNG.

From the hotfix thread lol :

We realise that this may be seen as a nerf to profitibility of skillers and want to reassure that this simply isn't the case. We want skilling to be profitable and will continue to release content in the future that help promote this.


Any way I doubt it will work but have you tried lower level runes like airs that give many runes per essence or try boost your level past 99 as having 130m rc xp means nothing really and should have no effect over having just 99.

Are you still getting magical threads ?

I played about one hour or so and got 8 magical threads, after that I played about another two hours, and got none at all !

This is very frustrating, is there perhaps a daily cap, or a bug, or some hidden mechanic, which prevents me from getting more threads ?

The first hour, when I got threads, I was very cautious, and wore royal dragon armor to protect from PK'ers. Afterwards, I got more courageous, and wore Infinity Ethereal, Catalyst Fragment and Demonic Skull, May this be the reason, perhaps a bug, which prevents you from getting threads with this outfit ?

Another possible reason, I could imagine, perhaps is, I crafted nature runes all the time (Ironman, always short on nature runes). Maybe one has to alternate rune types ?

They disabled magical threads so they could "rebalance" them because we figured out they were per instance of runecrafting for about 1 minute after leaving the abyss. I got 87 threads on my ironman before they disabled threads. The philosopher troll, born with the hands of a skiller and the mind of a jester.

In the 1st hour I got 10 threads. Had a break, been back a couple more hours and got nothing. Tried, as suggested above, other runes to get higher quantities. I'm wearing full Ethereal suit and Demonic Skull. Filling all 5 pouches and the suit for maximum runes and still coming away without the thread.

I supposed this information was given on Reddit?

#RSHotfix: We've now re-enabled Magical Thread, this can be obtained in the same way as before.

However, Magical threads will now offer a better chance to offer thread based on the amount of essence used in one interaction.

Above quote taken from Shauny's Twitter post.

Full Ethereal suit, 5 full pouches, rest of inv has ess.
5 Trips - 3 blank, 2 gave 1 thread. I guess RNG it is then

Full ethereal, all 5 pouches, inventory full of essence, demonic skull.
Roughly 20 trips to abyss in a row today.
Not a single thread.

Yesterday, before the "hotfix", I'd gotten 18 threads. 1 thread every 2 or 3 trips.

Feeling like Jagex is fucking with us or someone in the programming team is utterly incompetant.
