Fastest routes to the Abyss.

The inner ring of the Abyss.

At average speeds, one can do about 8 trips to the soul altar via the Abyss per hour, using the amulet of glory to teleport to Edgeville, and using an equipped pickaxe to mine through the rocks in the Abyss.

Players should mine 26 dense essence blocks at the dense runestone mine and then run to the dark altar to turn them into dark essence blocks and chip them with a chisel into dark essence fragments. Then, players should run back to the dense runestone mines and mine another inventory of 25 dense essence blocks and turn into dark essence fragments before teleporting to Edgeville with an amulet of glory and going to the soul altar.

Once inside, enter the soul rift and craft the dark essence fragments in your inventory. Chip the remaining dark essence blocks with your chisel and craft them. Run back to the dense runestone mine and repeat. 204 soul runes are made per trip with this method.
