Blood runes are one of the runes used to cast spells in the Magic skill. They are used in some of the highest level spells, the lowest of which being Ruby Crossbow Bolt Enchant, and the highest being Ice Barrage.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Blood runes can be obtained in various ways, including:

Runecrafting[edit | edit source]

With 100% Arceuus favour and 77 Runecraft, players can craft blood runes from dark essence fragments, granting 23.8 experience per fragment used. It is possible to reach approximately 38,000 experience per hour crafting blood runes. Using the full graceful outfit and having 80+ Agility should be enough to have enough run energy to last the whole trip, depending on how often the player has to switch between the essence mines.

Blood runes can also be crafted at the Ourania altar below level 77 Runecraft, however they are received relatively rarely.
