Added category

Currently there is a glitch that allows you to claim this spell with 850,000 produce (the max amount)

Not what it was expected to be

I used to think this update would be overpowered as a bunch of idioits kept demanding Ice Barrage to be added to it now I think this update was a complete waste of time as the only good spell outside this necklace mages got was trollheim teleport when more than 1 damn spell was promissed. They could have at least given Low Level Alchemy or the enchant spells. pyrolord 21:02, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Sadly true, it's far too limited to be useful for all but the most exact of uses. Since you need to have this necklace at the same time, and that necklace must be charged with that one spell of choice, of which you need 99 magic for, at which point the available spells are rather inferior, and all the while you must invest a large number of runes which may be far more than you would need from the spell. It's useless for combat since you cannot autocast and can only handle lower level spells, and inferior for other purposes due to a largely useless spell choice with too many limitations. Too bad.

Can elemental staves be used to charge the spells? (I suspect not) --Henneyj 00:33, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

No. Dsctatom 00:50, September 10, 2011 (UTC)


Is this even a necessary spell? I mean spellbook swap is much better and on that you can use any spell in the game! 23:21, August 29, 2011 (UTC)

You can use a spell more than once without having to cast Spellbook Swap over and over. Believe it or not, it's just me... 23:26, August 29, 2011 (UTC)

Costs of spells?

Should there be a section about the costs of each spell when cast through borrowed power? Personally I think this would be a great addition to the article and I could see myself using it in the future. I would do it myself but I'm kinda newb :(

Worst spell ever

Arguably the worst spell Jagex ever made. Puretppc (talk)

Doesn't Seem as Bad As it Sounds?

The logic in the article doesn't follow. You don't need a polypore staff, you can use whatever endgame wand you like, and while it might not autocast you can still put it on your hotbar and spam it all you like. It's niche, but it does mean that if you're mostly a skiller/artisan you can still have Fire Wave on tap for if you get jumped by demons or something. No, it'll never be as powerful as someone on the Ancient Magic spellbook, but that's not what it's for - it's for people who want just a little combat in their utility spellbook. 06:24, September 26, 2017 (UTC)
