With the Runecrafting skill players can create runes used for casting Magic spells. All runes are made out of Rune essence, mined from the Rune essence mine. Players can access this mine by climbing down the ladder south of Barbarian village or by talking to Aubury in Varrock and in Port Sarim.
To boost Runecrafting experience, players can wear Chaos gauntlets to gain an extra 5% experience. Also by having an active membership, you will gain an additional 10% experience in everything that you train in Emps-World. There is currently no means to boost your Runecrafting level temporarily.
Runes can be crafted at runecrafting altars, there are two ways to access them. One way is to go to a Prismatic altar with a talisman in your inventory, entering that altar will teleport you to the runecrafting altar of the first talisman in your inventory.
The other way is through the Abyss, which can be accessed by talking to Mage of Zamorak in the wilderness or by teleporting to it using the abyss teleport spell from the ancient spellbook. Once inside the abyss you'll have to get to the inner ring, depending on the passage you go through it can require level 50 in a few different skills. Around the inner ring are a number of rifts that will take you to their respective runecrafting altar. Finally when at a runecrafting altar, just click the altar and any rune essence in your inventory will be turned into runes and you will gain exp.
The only exception are Astral runes. These runes can only be created by smelting 4 Rune essence in a furnace or with the Superheat spell whilst wearing an Astral tiara. Which can be bought from Aubury's Rune store for 39,648 coins. You need 60 Smithing and 60 Runecrafting to create astral runes, however, superheating will ignore these requirements.
In the table below all requirements and runecrafting experience for crafting runes are displayed. Also, the amount of runes that you get for 1 Rune essence on level 99 Runecrafting is displayed. The multiplication does not apply to the amount of experience you get from crafting one Rune essence into a certain type of rune, that always stays the same.
|Image||Rune||Runecrafting level||Runecrafting XP||Multiplication on lv 99|
|Astral rune||60, 60 Smithing||160||No multiplier|
Combination runes are combined versions of elemental runes (Air, Water, Earth or Fire runes). They all require level 1 Runecrafting to make and to craft them, you must bring rune essence and a different talisman to the altar you want to make a combination rune of. For example, to make a Smoke rune, which is a combination of Air and Fire, you can bring a Fire talisman and Air talisman to the Fire altar or the Air altar. This process grants no experience.
|Mist rune||Air rune and Water rune|
|Dust rune||Air rune and Earth rune|
|Smoke rune||Air rune and Fire rune|
|Mud rune||Water rune and Earth rune|
|Steam rune||Water rune and Fire rune|
|Lava rune||Earth rune and Fire rune|
While wearing the runecrafter outfit the amount of runes crafted will be increased by 2,5% per piece. Full set grants 10% increased amount of runes.
