**1. Intro**

~~__________________________________________________________________________~~

**1.1 How to start leveling summoning**

After the game update in early 2012 the Wolf Whistle quest is no longer a requirement but it is still worthwhile as it will teach you the basics, boost your level from 1 to 4 and present you with gold charms which are a good way to start out.

~~__________________________________________________________________________~~

**1.2 Recommended items/levels**

- Atleast 1-10m gp (Spirit shards cost 25gp each + you will be needing 2nd ingredients)
- 10 construction (To move your house to Taverly for better access to the obelisk)

OR: - 57 Summoning (Spirit Kyatt, look below for picture on how to level with those)

^ the picture above shows that you teleport with a spirit Kyatt, then there's a trapdoor and you just go down it :) - Also it would be wise to have 55 Magic (if you chose to alchemise your pouches)

~~__________________________________________________________________________~~

**1.3 What should I do with my pouches?**

By alcheming your pouches you get

*around*70% of the gp for the shard cost back + nature runes expense.

**OR:**

Bring the pouches to Bogrog and he

*will*give you 70% of your shards back, except you will be needing a higher level to trade the pouches. Here is the location of Bogrog and few examples of what levels you need to trade the pouches:

After getting level 13 switch to Thorny Snails and that's how you make it to 16 or 17.

**NOT**to make turnips because the 2nd ingredient is about 5.6k each and it's going to be expensive. On the other hand if you have no use for money go for it. I'll do the calculations anyway.

From level 42 to level 46 you're going to need 122 evil turnip pouches, that's 104 shards each. 122*104*25=317,200gp

**2.6 levels 52-61-64**

At this point you might want to make some bird pouches, but I don't suggest making them, unless you're going to be using them as Beasts of Burden (as they've become somewhat less usefull after the agility update).

**2.10 How many charms you need to 99 summoning?**

Gold - 278

Green - 0

Crimson - 35490

Remember, you'll have extra blue charms, which I haven't included, so the calculations may be just a

*little*off:)

People also ask me 'why so many crimsons, so few golds and no greens?' and the answer is simple: because crimson charms are easy to obtain, they give the optimum experience and their second ingredients aren't as expensive.

Also, these numbers don't mean that you

*can't*make green/gold charm familiars but it's just not efficient to make them, unless you need them, e.g. unicorns or bunyips or just spirit terrorbirds. If you have those charms and want to use them - go for it.

~~__________________________________________________________________________~~

**2nd Ingredients' prices included since August 13th, 2009**
