Overview[edit | edit source]

All players begin the league with level 5 Runecraft. The training methods are mostly the same as the main game, depending on which altars are available. Daeyalt essence provides a 50% bonus to Runecraft experience when used to craft runes, requires completion of the Sins of the Father questMorytania. Necklace of binding grants a 100% success rate to make combination runes and should always be used while crafting them.

Runecraft is modified by two tier 1 relics.

  • Endless harvest greatly increases the speed at which players can obtain Pure essence, however Zulrah provides a similar amount per hour and Daeyalt essence mining reduces the time burden of mining essence to a negligible amount.
  • Production master is not directly beneficial to Runecraft training.
  • Skilling prodigy allows players to bypass low-level and low XP content.

Tier 2 relics choice have significant impact on Runecraft training.

  • Last Recall makes is possible to teleport back to the altar removing the need for most of the running in the training cycle.
  • Eternal Jeweler may make the training somewhat more convenient if you are using teleportation jewellery in the process (for example when using Abyss).
  • Fairy's Flight is not very useful for Runecraft training.

The Equilibrium relic affects every inventory of essence only once, which makes it beneficial to craft an inventory of runes in separate steps. This can be achieved in several ways. The simplest way is to bring all pouches, and then craft runes in between every time you empty a pouch. Although this does increase the experience per inventory, players using the crystal of memories from the Last Recall relic might want to simply teleport back and forth instead. Another way to do this is to bring both pure essence and daeyalt essence in a single inventory, which get crafted individually. This causes Equilibrium to provide one extra experience drop per inventory. Finally, players without easy access to altars might want to consider dropping all essence, and then crafting them one-by-one to ensure more bonus experience from Equilibrium.

Creating tiaras[edit | edit source]

Other equipment[edit | edit source]

Item Region Notes
Giant pouch.png Essence pouches Wilderness Wilderness Although essence pouches can be obtained in the starting region via ALR, they cannot be repaired without unlocking the Wilderness region.[1]
Daeyalt essence.png Daeyalt essence Morytania Morytania Requires 60 Mining and the Sins of the Father quest. Provides 50% extra Runecraft XP when used. This bonus is multiplicative with the 70% bonus at the Ourania Altar, for a total bonus of 155%. This is significantly faster overall to train Runecraft than using pure essence when including the time necessary to obtain each.
Pure essence.png Pure essence Misthalin Misthalin Tirannwn Tirannwn Requires 30 Mining, pre-requisites are auto-unlocked. Zulrah provides an average of 120~ Pure essence per kill and can easily compete with normal mining methods. The Nightmare Zone reward shop cannot be used to obtain pure essence in the Trailblazer League.
