Blood rune detail.png

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 is Ruby Crossbow Bolt Enchant, and the highest is Heal Group. Blood runes are also used in charging the Scythe of Vitur, Sanguinesti staff, and soul bearer.

Runecrafting[edit | edit source]

With 100% Arceuus favour and 77 Runecraft, players can craft blood runes from dark essence fragments. Each fragment grants 23.8 experience, excluding the 0.625 experience from binding the dense essence (95.2 experience per dark essence block, and 2.5 experience per block for binding). 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. Players with an achievement diary cape may also use the Abyss (using the teleport to Lesser Fanatic) to achieve slightly higher experience rates of approximately 45,000 per hour at peak efficiency, although it involves a slight risk of being attacked by other players.

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