Tips & Tricks

Return to quick facts

Experience lamps and books of knowledge are often used on Runecraft due to the length of time it takes to train.

The Arceuus library provides an alternative to low level runecrafting.

The Ourania (ZMI) Altar offers 200% experience compared to other altars. A random distribution of craftable runes (excluding wrath) is received each trip. The distribution of runes becomes more profitable in relation to the player’s runecraft level.

Full graceful and/or an ornate rejuvenation pool will help speed up trips.

Runecrafting tiaras are made by using a tiara on an altar with the corresponding talisman in inventory.

The elemental talisman allows players to enter the air, water, earth, and fire altars. It cannot be made into a tiara.
