Nature rune detail.png

Nature runes are runes used for transmutation spells such as Low and High Alchemy and Superheat Item. They are also used for the spells Bind, Snare and Entangle. Nature runes can be crafted from pure essence by Members with level 44 Runecraft at the Nature altar, granting 9 experience per pure essence used. Players with 91 or greater Runecraft will always craft two nature runes per essence.

Nature runes are one of the most popular non-elemental runes traded in RuneScape due to the fact that many players need the runes to train their Magic using High Level Alchemy and Superheat Item.

Nature runes are also used in the Plank Make, Spin Flax and Tan Leather spells in the Lunar spellbook.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Spawns[edit | edit source]

There is a lava-surrounded island in high-level Wilderness, south-east of the Demonic Ruins, where 2 nature runes may be Telegrabbed from a spawn. Each telegrab in the wilderness yields 3-4 nature runes depending on the spawn.

Furthermore, there are also some located on an island near the rock crabs by Rellekka that need to be telegrabbed.

They also exist in chests in Ardougne and Rellekka. A Thieving level of 28 is needed to open the locks.

Shops[edit | edit source]

Players may purchase nature runes at Lundail's Arena-side Rune Shop in the Mage Arena, Mage Training Arena, the Magic Guild Store in Yanille, or at Baba Yaga's Magic Shop on Lunar Isle.

Running[edit | edit source]

Running nature runes is the activity of banking and passing pure essence to crafters in exchange for the nature runes made.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In RuneScape Classic, the icon of a nature rune resembles a tree much more, with the top part being more ridged.
