Smoke rune detail.png

Smoke runes are combination runes. They count as two separate runes: one fire rune and one air rune. Thus, any spell requiring one fire rune, one air rune, or both will cost only one smoke rune.

They can be created with the Runecraft skill or purchased with Pizazz points from the Mage Training Arena.

When equipped, the smoke battlestaff and mystic smoke staff provide an unlimited number of smoke runes.

Runecraft info[edit | edit source]

At Runecraft 15 Runecraft or higher, they can be crafted in either of two ways:

You may wear a tiara to enter and use the altar, but the other element must be a talisman when crafting combination runes. Clicking on the altar or using a pure essence on it will produce normal runes. To prevent creating the wrong runes, make sure you are using the complementary rune on the altar. For example, at the Fire Altar use the air runes on the altar.

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). The elemental talisman will also not work in place of talismans when crafting the runes.
