    At average speeds, one can do about 7.5 trips to the Blood Altar per hour, producing 204 blood runes on each.

    Players should mine an inventory full of dense essence blocks at the dense runestone mine, run to the Dark Altar to turn them into dark essence blocks, and chip them with a chisel into dark essence fragments. Then, players should run back to the dense runestone mines and mine another inventory full of dense essence blocks, turn them into dark essence blocks, and run to the Blood Altar south-west of the dark altar.

    Once there, craft the fragments in the inventory into runes, chisel the remaining blocks, and runecraft them as well. Run back to the dense runestone mine (with 73 Agility, there is a shortcut available) and repeat.

    Wearing a full set of Raiments of the Eye grants the player 60% additional runes when crafting blood runes, adding to the profit made from this method. No additional experience is gained, however. It is advisable to bring a Ring of Endurance with at least 500 charges, as it will reduce the drain rate for run energy by 15%.

    Completing the medium Kourend & Kebos Diary grants the player a 5% chance of mining an additional dense essence block, adding to the profit made from this method. No additional mining experience is awarded for the extra block.

    Completing the elite Kourend & Kebos Diary grants the player 10% additional runes when crafting blood runes, adding to the profit made from this method. No additional experience is gained, however.

    Bringing along an activated blood essence grants a 50% chance to craft an extra blood rune per dark essence fragment for no additional experience. Due to losing an inventory slot, this equates to 44% bonus runes per/hour and -4% Experience p/h. If bringing a stack of unactivated essence also, expect 38% bonus runes and -8% Experience p/h.
