In this guide i will tell you the best,fastest, cheapest and most proftiable way to get 99 Summoning on the online game Runescape.
In my opinion Summoning is a medium leveled skill to master on Runescape this is because the amount of effort it takes to get 99 and also how much money is spent in the process. It also takes quite along time and can also be very boring when going for 99. The Summoning cape is one of the most prestigious capes on the game in my opinion and i probably the favorite skillcape that i have. As with most of my guides, i try to keep them as straight forward as possible but if you have any questions just leave a comment down below. Anyway on with the guide enjoy :)
In order to start Summoning you must complete the Quest Wolf Whistle, this is a very easy quest and it can be started by talking to Pickupstix's in southeast Taverly. The quest is rather short and on completion you will receive 276 summoning XP as well as 275 gold charms. The 276xp will automatically give you level 4 Summoning and the 275 gold charms will be enough to get you to level 16 Summoning.
In order to make a pouch, what you have to do is take an empty pouch, a charm, the correct amount of spirit shards and the corresponding tertiary ingredient for the particular pouch you wish to make. Once you have gathered all of the items go to a summoning obelisk, click on it and then click on the familiar that you wish to create.
The two main summoning obelisks are Taverley and Piscatoris, however you should use the Taverley obelisk until level 57 and then once at 57 you should switch to Piscatoris and you should also use a Spirit Kyatt familiar this is because the XP here is much faster.
My personal favourite method to collect charms is by training slayer. As you already probably know by killing monsters you receive charms, by training slayer you are getting your combat level up, slayer level up and at the same time receiving charms.
Another method of collecting charms is by playing games of Soulwars and then using the Seal you receive to purchase charms.
Here are a list of the best monsters that drop specific charms:-
Gold Charms: Giant rock crabs, Fire giants and Hellhounds.
Green Charms: CaveBugs, Bloodvelds and Iron Dragons.
Crimson Charms: Black Demons, Waterfiends (200 p/h), Rock Lobsters (150-200p/h)
Blue Charms: Gargoyles, Suqhas and Aquanites.
Below are a list of the familiar pouches that you should make with gold charms at each level:
Levels 4-16 Dreadfowl
Levels 16-28 Granite Crab
Levels 28-52 save your charms
Levels 52-66 Spirit Terrobird
Levels 66-99 Barker Toads
It is important to notice that most people actually stop using gold charms after level 85.
Below are a list of the familiar pouches that you should make with green charms at each level:
Until level 28 you should be saving your green charms and therefore not using any.
Levels 28-33 Compost Mound
Levels 33-41 Beaver
Levels 49-56 Magpie
Levels 56-69 Ibis
Levels 69-80 Fruit Bat
Levels 80-88 Hydra
Levels 88-99 Unicorn Stallion
Below are a list of the familiar pouches that you should make with Crimson charms at each level:
Levels 22-32 Spirit Tz Kh (Recommended that you save until level 32)
Levels 32-46 Honey Badger
Levels 46-49 Pyrelord
Levels 49-61 Bloated Leech
Levels 61-64 Smoke Devils
Levels 64-74 Strange Plant
Levels 74-85 Granite Lobsters
Levels 85-92 or 99 Swamp Titans
Levels 92-95 Wolpertinger
Levels 95-96 Iron Titan
Levels 96-99 Pack yak's
Levels 57-58 Spirit Kyatt or Graahk
Levels 58-66 Karamathu Overload (recommend that you save)
Levels 66-73 Mithril Minotaurs (recommend that you save)
Levels 73-79 Obsidian Golem
Levels 79-83 Fire or Moss Titans
Levels 83-89 Lava Titans
Levels 88-99 Geyser Titan

Matt on December 18, 2016:
When training I always use your guides as a reference thanks man!
Skyco on April 23, 2016:
That's my guide and it contains entirely opposite information. I have details differentiating mine from his.
Although the titles look similar I wrote a separate guide with the same topic...
It's HubPro & featured: https://hubpages.com/games-hobbies/Levels-1-99-Run...
heheh on July 02, 2015:
https://skyco.hubpages.com/hub/Levels-1-99-Runesca... Doesn't this one look a lot like your guide? I didn't know copypasting was allowed and even calling it one's own.
keleva on October 29, 2014:
You did good..thx.
KalJon on September 19, 2014:
Ice warriors/giants have an amazing drop rate. But every sit fails to mention them.
Josh on August 29, 2014:
I recommend you put the materials you need for each pouch and also maybe put the prices of those materials and shards
not everyone had loads of cash for summoning.
Sosa on August 02, 2014:
I'm kind of curious to hear why people say this is such an expensive skill.
Some even call it the most expensive skill. To be able to process in this skill you've to farm A LOT to get the charms, and during that farm there's no way in hell you're not getting plenty of loot that you can sell, right?
Exactly what is it that makes it so expensive? I just came back to Rs and I stopped at 54 summoning, thinking of getting that to 99 too.
Welkin Art on July 10, 2014:
Hey man just wanted to say thanks for all the guides! I always refer to them when I'm skilling..and they always pointed in the right direction..keep it up =D
Rick on February 26, 2014:
Thanks Very much, Helped me get 99 summoning =D
Thanks on January 20, 2014:
What is your rough estimate for the cost of 99 summoning from 60 summoning?
Mogzxh on November 16, 2013:
Hi! Magpie's are from level 47 not 49.
Mat on August 26, 2013:
Not you're best guide but in general you are a great help when i'm contemplating a skill to 99. Many thanks, hope things are going well for you dude.
jayd on August 06, 2013:

anonymous on January 29, 2013:
forget what i said above you can't buy charms
anonymous on January 28, 2013:
Great guide it would help more if you said how much the different charms cost and how much xp you get from each one, but still really good
Hi on January 01, 2013:
Ok so which charms are faster to use?
Or all they all the same?
Ad which charms are easier to get?

Thanks a lot man .
torn on September 01, 2012:

JBastow (author) from Gateshead United Kingdom on August 23, 2012:
Not at the moment mate i'm currently in the middle of moving house therefore i don't have the time sorry, you can expect me to be publishing guides by the end of September again. Thanks for the comment btw.
Matt on August 23, 2012:
Any guides in development ATM? Love your guides btw :)
JBastow (author) from Gateshead United Kingdom on August 19, 2012:
You think darkness is your ally? You merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, molded by it.
BenN on August 19, 2012:
Great guides mate.
Really appreciate the hard work your doing.
A combat guide would be nice, if you had the time :)
JBastow (author) from Gateshead United Kingdom on August 18, 2012:
More than likely but I am in the middle of moving house ATM so I don't have any spare time.
Matt on August 17, 2012:
Are you making any other 1-99 guides?
JBastow (author) from Gateshead United Kingdom on August 14, 2012:
Follow me on twitter or on hubpages and within the next 48hours you will be informed when I have published a slayer guide :)
APL on August 14, 2012:
slayer guide plz
JBastow (author) from Gateshead United Kingdom on August 06, 2012:
No problem :)
Tjoomny on August 06, 2012:
Yeah it did thank you really much
JBastow (author) from Gateshead United Kingdom on August 06, 2012:
For levels 28 to 52 you should not make any familiar with gold charms instead you should use your green or crimson charms. At level 85 if you have crimson charms make Moss Titans because they are better xp when compared to Barker Toads. Hope this helped :)
Tjoomny on August 06, 2012:
ey nice guide but on the list of the gold charms stands by level 28 to 52 save your charms?? can you explain what you main with this???
and what do most people use after level 85 with gold charms?
JBastow (author) from Gateshead United Kingdom on July 27, 2012:
Thanks for the support dude, if there's any guides you wish me too write just leave a comment. :)
John on July 27, 2012:
