Runecrafting is a skill which allows the player to craft runes using Rune Essence, as well as magic Magic Gear from runes and Logs. Runes can be used in Magic for casting spells, or in Herblore for making potions. All Runecrafting actions takes 2 seconds. Purchasing the Expanded Knowledge god upgrade reduces this time by 20% to 1.6 seconds. Elemental Potions can be used to provide a 5-50% chance to obtain one random elemental rune each time runes are crafted. Raising Runecrafting to level 99 will unlock the Runecrafting Skillcape for purchase from the Shop. Equipping the Runecrafting Skillcape provides a 35% chance to not consume Rune Essence when crafting runes.

The pet can be unlocked by doing any Runecrafting action. Contrary to the in-game description, Gunter's ability will preserve all resources required to craft the selected item if it triggers, not just Rune Essence.

Below is a table of the different combination runes you can make.

Combination runes can be used in the place of spells that need both of the appropriate runes. For example, Mist Rune (item).svg Mist Runes can be used for any spell that normally needs both Air Rune (item).svg Air Runes and Water Rune (item).svg Water Runes to cast.
