A Water orb is a version of elemental orbs that can be attach to a battlestaff, which turns into a water battlestaff. Players often make water orb to make money, either from casting the High Level Alchemy spell on a water battlestaff, or from selling water orb itself on the Grand Exchange.

Water orb can be made by using the Charge Water Orb spell , a level 56 spell on normal spell book, on the water obelisk with an unpowered orb in the inventory. The spell requires 3 cosmic runes, 30 water runes, and 1 unpowered orb and grants 66 magic experience to players if cast. The water obelisk is located on an island south of Catherby fishing spots, which can only be accessed by traveling through Taverley Dungeon.

Many players with higher magic level tend to make an air orb instead of water orb because Charge Air Orb gives more experience and the route to the air obelisk is shorter compared to the route to water obelisk. However, there is a shortcut in Taverley Dungeon, which requires 80 Agility to overcome. This shortcut saves considerable amount of time, which is comparable to the time it takes to travel to the Air Obelisk.

Water orb was less profitable to make before October 25, 2011, which is the Bot Nuking Day. However, the Grand Exchange price of water orb had tripled after the nuking, which means water orb can be a viable way to make money, even when you purchase all the materials off the Grand Exchange (as of Dec. 2, 2011).

Even before the Bot Nuking Day, water orb has the lowest GE price out of the charged orbs. This is because players kill waterfiend, who drops water orbs in noted form, for their slayer task, or simply for frequent crimson charms drop.
