The Cosmic Altar is a runic altar in which cosmic runes are crafted upon from pure essence, providing 8 Runecraft experience per essence imbued. Level 27 Runecraft and completion of the Lost City quest is required to craft cosmic runes.

Players may create a cosmic tiara here by using either a cosmic talisman or a tiara on the altar whilst having both in the their inventory, granting 40 Runecraft experience. A catalytic tiara can also be created here by using a catalytic talisman and gold tiara, granting 60 Runecraft experience.

Upon entering the Cosmic Altar, the music track Stratosphere plays.

Location[edit | edit source]

The location of the mysterious ruins used to enter the Cosmic Altar.

As with most other runic altars, it can either be accessed via the Abyss or the mysterious ruins found in southern Zanaris, just outside the shady grove.

There are two agility shortcuts that allow faster access, one requiring 46 Agility for the medium shortcut, and 66 Agility for the advanced shortcut. Players will take four damage if they fail these shortcuts.

To enter the mysterious ruins, players either have to use a cosmic talisman on the ruins, or click "Enter" on the ruins while wearing a cosmic tiara. Alternatively, a catalytic talisman or tiara can be used.

Experience[edit | edit source]

Crafting 1 essence into a cosmic rune grants 8 experience.

From level 59 on (boostable) there are 2 cosmics created per essence, without giving any additional experience.

This is required for the Lumbridge & Draynor Diary hard task of creating 56 cosmic runes simultaneously.
