The three routes to the fire altar. Yellow is without agility shortcuts, cyan is with the level 70 shortcut, and magenta is with the level 80 shortcut.

Fire orbs are worth 5,232 coins, and are created by casting Charge Fire Orb on unpowered orbs at the Fire Obelisk. With an equipped fire staff, this requires 3 cosmic runes per cast (or 1,236 coins). Using a ring of duelling to teleport to Castle Wars (or the Tokkul-zo) for banking, you can charge 27 orbs per trip (one inventory slot is needed for the cosmic runes), resulting in a profit of 88,344 coins per trip.

The Fire Obelisk is located in the Taverley Dungeon. Using the map on the right as a guide through the dungeon, the round trip to the obelisk, counting banking, takes approximately 185 seconds using the 80 agility shortcut, 205 seconds using the 70 agility shortcut, or 325 seconds without any shortcuts. Note: With the skillcape perks update, you can now teleport to taverley dungeon hellhounds with 99 dungeoneering, cutting down trip time dramatically.

Bear in mind that running through the Taverley Dungeon places you in combat range of aggressive black demons, poison spiders and hellhounds. Strong armour is recommended.

Assuming the unpowered orbs and cosmic runes are purchased, you can make 525 fire orbs an hour using the level 80 agility shortcut (1,717,800), 475 fire orbs using the level 70 agility shortcut (1,554,200), and 300 fire orbs using no shortcuts (981,600).
