Varrock Earth Altar Paterdomus

The Earth altar is a Runecraft altar located just south of the Varrock Lumber Yard. It is used to craft earth runes from either rune essence or pure essence, granting 6.5 experience.

Access[edit | edit source]

As with most other runecrafting altars, it can be accessed via the Abyss. Players can also enter its ruins by using an earth talisman or by wearing an earth tiara.

Combination runes[edit | edit source]

It is possible to make Mud runes, Dust runes, and Lava runes while at this altar, but at a 50% success rate. This will result in less runes than normal being made. To make a combination rune, the player needs one set of elemental runes, a stack of pure essence, and 2 talismans.

Note that you need to use the opposing rune on the altar to craft combination runes. Simply clicking on the altar would just result in regular elemental runes.

Magic Imbue negates the need of a talisman.

If the player equips a binding necklace, the success rate will increase to 100%. The necklace has a total of 16 uses before breaking. A charge is used each time a batch of combination runes is crafted, instead of each time the altar is entered or for each rune crafted.

Tiaras[edit | edit source]

An earth tiara may be created at this altar by having an earth talisman and a normal tiara in your inventory. The player must use the tiara on the altar. Doing so will earn 32.5 Runecraft experience.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • At the western-most point, players can see parts of the fire altar.
  • Making some earth runes in the earth altar is an easy task in the Varrock Diary and crafting 100 earth runes in a single trip is an elite task.
