Water rune detail.png

The Water rune is one of the 4 basic elemental runes that are used in a variety of spells. They are sold at all magic shops, including Aubury's Rune Shop and Betty's Magic Emporium. A staff of water, water battlestaff, mud battlestaff, mist battlestaff, or Kodai wand can also be equipped to provide unlimited water runes. Water runes are used in conjunction with body runes and earth runes to cast the Confuse, Weaken, and Curse spells, often regarded as an inexpensive source of Magic experience.

Players with at least 5 Runecraft can craft their own water runes by using a rune essence or a pure essence with the water altar, south of Lumbridge in the swamps, earning 6 Runecraft experience each. Each essence yields one water rune, two at level 19, three at level 38, four at level 57, five at level 76, and six at level 95. Water runes are also commonly dropped by many monsters around the world.

They can also be purchased from the Nightmare Zone, using 25 reward points.
