RunecraftingIconRunecrafting is a skill which can be used to makes Runes using Rune Essence or Pure Essence. With runes, it is possible to cast magic spells using the magic skill,even though not all can be made with Runecrafting. As you begin with runecrafting, you will make only 1 rune per essence, but as you progress within the skill you will be able to create multiple runes with the same amount of essence.

How it WorksEdit

To craft the runes it is necessary to first complete the Rune Mysteries quest. After completing the quest, the player has access to the Rune Essence Mine. Here, Rune Essence (normal or Pure) can be aquired through the Mining skill. You enter the Rune Essence Mine by asking a Rune Shop Owner (such as the one located at the East Varrock) to teleport into the mine. This essence must then be taken to a Altars to bind the essence with the altar's power. In order to reach these altars, a talisman (or tiara) that matches the altar's power or element must be present in the inventory (or worn if a tiara is used). Talismans can be either bought or obtained as drops from monsters within the game.

For example, if a player wished to make water runes, they would need some rune essence and a water talisman in their inventory. The player would use the talisman on the mysterious ruins to enter it, and would be transported to an alternate dimension containing the functionable version of the altar. When the player clicks on the altar, all of the rune essence in the inventory is then converted into water runes.

Law runningEdit

With 27 unnoted Pure Essences which can be mined or bought from another player (for around 2k). Run from Draynor bank to Entrana which can be reached by boat from Port Sarim. Then run to the law Altar which is found just a long the coast from the docks.

You can trade a person wearing a law tiara or someone saying "open". Trade your unnoted pure essence for noted pure essence and 27 law runes.
