Runecraft[edit | edit source]

Early levels: Quests / Tears of Guthix

Until 77: Lavas + Library

75-99 1.5t Daeyalt

You can do library instead of daeylt if you have broad arrows to fletch that you won't be able to finish during hourlies/sepulchre

Mostly trained as normal. Regardless of the method, it is strongly recommended that players wait until they have access to stamina potions before doing a significant amount of training. Craft lava runes or runes at the Ourania Altar up to level 77 or 90, and continue by crafting blood or soul runes in Arceuus once you have run out of pure essence. Players will need to make the emerald jewellery for crafting lava runes, however high-level players may obtain significant quantities of binding necklaces while killing the Abyssal Sire for its unique drops. For the Ourania Altar, players can get a lot of mind runes (for payment) from Barrows.

The best way to collect pure essence is through Slayer, as wyrms, gargoyles, Skeletal Wyverns and Fossil Island wyverns frequently drop pure essence in large quantities. Players can also collect pure essence daily from Wizard Cromperty after completing the medium tasks (or higher) in the Ardougne Diary. High-level players can also get a lot of pure essence from Zulrah and the Chambers of Xeric. If pure essence is desired before access to the aforementioned methods is obtained, the fastest method to get essence is to do Temple Trekking. Using Route Three with a medium or hard companion will net around 5,000–10,000 pure essence per hour depending on combat level.

Alternatively, players can find books for the customers in the Arceuus Library. This method offers relatively fast experience and does not require any pure essence. Each book turned in grants 4 times the current Runecraft level in experience, and experience rates scale linearly depending on the Runecraft level. With good performance and when using stamina potions, players can turn in up to around 160 books per hour, which translates to 44,800 experience per hour at level 70. This method is viable without stamina potions, but the player can only turn in up to around 100–110 books per hour.

Blood and soul runes can be sold to Ali Morrisane for money, but it is strongly recommended to save the blood runes for casting barrage spells.
