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.
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 -2.7 per experience gained, assuming Grand Exchange market prices.
