Mud runes are combination runes. They count as two separate runes: one water rune and one earth rune. Thus, any spell requiring one water rune, one earth rune or both will spend only one mud rune. They can be created with the Runecraft skill, purchased with pizazz points from the Mage Training Arena, or looted from essence implings with 42 Hunter.

When equipped, the mud battlestaff and mystic mud staff will act as an unlimited number of mud runes.

Mud runes can be ground with a pestle and mortar to create ground mud runes. One ground mud rune is required to complete The Eyes of Glouphrie.

Runecrafting mud runes[edit | edit source]

At Runecraft level 13 or higher, they can be crafted in either of two ways:

  • Pure essence, earth runes and an earth talisman to the water altar (for 9.3 Runecraft experience per rune). Remember to bring a water talisman or tiara to enter the water altar (use an earth talisman on the altar to create the mud runes).
  • Pure essence, water runes and a water talisman to the earth altar (for 9.5 Runecraft experience per rune). Remember to bring an earth talisman or tiara to enter the earth altar (use a water talisman on the altar to create the mud runes).

Tiaras will not work in place of talismans while crafting combination runes. Combinations have a 50% success rate (or 100%, if the player is wearing a binding necklace), and the talisman is consumed in the process (unless the player uses the Lunar spell Magic Imbue).
