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. They can be purchased from many magic shops.

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 Runecraft will always craft two nature runes per essence.

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

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 rune spawns may be telegrabbed. Each of these spawns yields 3-4 nature runes.

There are also some located on an island near the rock crabs by Rellekka that must be telegrabbed.

They also spawn in locked chests in Ardougne and Rellekka. A Thieving level of 28 is needed to pick the locks.

Runecrafting[edit | edit source]

Nature runes are crafted at the Nature altar south-east of Tai Bwo Wannai. This altar is close to the fairy ring ckr.

"Running" nature runes is the activity of "runners" bringing essence to the altar and passing it to "crafters" in exchange for the nature runes made. Players often overcharge for this service though, so it is recommended to run the runes yourself.

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.
