If you don't have money to buy Gem Gloves (item).svg Gem Gloves, either sell Mithril Ore (item).svg Mithril Ore, smelt and sell Gold Bar (item).svg Gold Bars, or get money through the Fishing (skill).svg Fishing money-making method.

It is also recommended to use any Mastery Pool experience to increase the Mastery level of nodes that you're about to mine to level 30.
