Unpowered orb detail

An unpowered orb is an item used to make enchanted orbs by casting an enchanting spell on the corresponding Obelisk, then crafting the orb onto a battlestaff to make an air, earth, fire, or water battlestaff. An unpowered orb can be made out of molten glass with a glassblowing pipe (preferably in tool belt) at Crafting level 46, granting 52.5 Crafting experience.

On 6 May 2009 Jagex updated the appearance of unpowered orbs by making them a darker colour, becoming easier to differentiate from air orbs.

Creating unpowered orbs can be a cost-effective way to train Crafting. Including banking time, a full inventory of molten glass takes about 58 seconds to craft. Using this method can therefore yield over 90,000 experience per hour at a cost of Coins 5 -5.6 per experience gained, assuming Grand Exchange market prices.
