Obtaining[edit | edit source]
Blood runes can be obtained in various ways, including:
- Purchase from various Rune shops, including:
- Found in the Barrows chest with at least 756 rewards potential.
- Thieving from the Chaos Druid Tower chest (requires level 59 Thieving).
- As drops from various monsters.
- Crafted at Arceuus with 100% favour and 77 Runecraft.
- Pickpocketing Hero in Ardougne (requires level 80 Thieving).
Item spawns[edit | edit source]
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 0.6 experience from binding the dense essence. 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.
