Smithing tables


This skill requires that you have done the Rune Mysteries Quest. Its a fairly easy quest, and you'll most likely be able to complete it in a max of 30 mins.

To do runecrafting you wont need much tools, just a pickaxe (any kind will do), and the talisman of the rune you want to craft. I'll give the locations of the talismans/alters later on.

To start with you'll have to mine some rune essences. You can only do this in the special runecrafting mining fields. To get to one of these you'll have to get teleported by one of the following people:

- Headwizard in Wizard tower
- Aubury in the runeshop in Varrock
- Wizard Cromperty, East Ardougne
- Wizard Distentor in the Magic guild
- Brimstail Gnome in the Gnome tree village, underground cave

Once you get teleported you'll be in a cave like thing, there are a couple of rooms with some giant rocks in the middle. Mine the big rocks and you'll get your essences. Bank them, and go back for more, or go straight to the alter.


Talismans and Alters?

You dont find the talismans just lying around here and there, you'll have to kill monsters to get them. Some talismans are easy to get, while others are extremely hard to get. Here's a table of what monsters you'll have to kill to get the different talismans.

Mind Talisman Mind Imps, Wizards and Dark Wizards
Water Talisman Water Wizards and Dark Wizards
Earth Talisman Earth Men, Women, Wizards, Dark Wizards, Al Kharid Warriors and Rogues

Multiple runes per essence

When your runecrafting level gets higher, you'll be able to get more then 1 rune per essence. Here's a table to show you at what level you'll get more runes :) However remember that you'll still only get exp per essence, not per rune... This means if you get to lvl 33 and get 4 air runes for 1 essence, you'll still only get 5 exp.

Picture Name Lvl for 2x Lvl for 3x Lvl for 4x Lvl for 5x Lvl for 6x Lvl for 7x Lvl for 8x Lvl for 9x Lvl for 10x

Tips, tricks and notes

  • You can get a talisman, even if you arent able to make the rune it refers to yet. Same goes for finding the alters.
  • First of all, mine your essences at Aubury (Varrock Rune Shop) if you are f2p. He is closer to bank and that saves time. If you are p2p then use the Magic Guild, its very fast. When you are mining take only pickaxe with you.
  • To make the trips faster, dont carry anything else other than your pickaxe. This way you can run longer.
