Chaos rune detail.png

Chaos runes are used for low level missile spells, such as wind bolt, water bolt, earth bolt and fire bolt. They are also used to charge the trident of the seas.

They spawn in the Wilderness near some moss giants, in the north-west corner of the Dark Warriors' Fortress, and can also be bought from the Varrock and Port Sarim magic shops.

Members can make them with the Runecraft skill at level 35 at the Chaos Altar, by having pure essence in the inventory and a chaos tiara equipped or a chaos talisman in the inventory, granting 8.5 experience per rune crafted. At runecraft level 74 and up, two chaos runes are made per essence at the Chaos Altar.
