Crafting combination runes[edit | edit source]
To make combination runes, players need to bring equal amounts of pure essence and elemental runes, and a talisman or tiara to enter the altar for the other type of rune (unless accessing the altar via the Abyss however a talisman is still needed to craft the combination rune). Enter the altar, and use the talisman (not a tiara) on the runecraft altar. For example, if a player wishes to make 10 steam runes, they could bring one of the following sets of items:
- Ten pure essence, ten Water runes, and a Water talisman to the Fire altar
- Ten pure essence, ten Fire runes, and a Fire talisman to the Water altar
You don't need exactly the amount of runes as pure essence in your inventory. For example, it would be perfectly okay to carry 100 Water runes.
The pure essence, elemental runes, and talisman will be consumed, and you will receive the newly-crafted combination runes.
The chance of successfully binding the runes together is only 50%, and the talisman used to make the combination runes is consumed even if the runecrafting fails. A worn Binding necklace increases this chance of success to 100%.
The Lunar Magic spell Magic Imbue allows players to make combination runes without needing the opposite talisman for 12 seconds. After casting Magic Imbue, simply use the opposite runes on the runecraft altar with pure essence in your inventory.
When the player casts a spell with combination runes in their inventory, it will prioritize using those runes first - even while having sufficient runes otherwise.
