Runecrafting is a skill which allows the player to craft runes using Rune Essence (item).svg Rune Essence, as well as Magic (skill).svg Magic equipment from runes and logs. Runes can be used in Magic for casting spells, or in Herblore (skill).svg Herblore for making potions. All Runecrafting actions takes 2 seconds. Purchasing the Expanded Knowledge (upgrade).svg Expanded Knowledge god upgrade reduces this time by 15% to 1.7 seconds.

The amount of runes created per action increases with the Mastery.svg Mastery level of the runes being created. This can be increased by an additional 5 with the 95% Mastery pool checkpoint, or 2 if using the Crow (item).svg Crow familiar. Elemental Potions can be used to provide a 5-50% chance to obtain 2-8 additional random elemental runes each time runes are crafted, where the chance and amount runes given increases with the tier of the potion used.

Raising Runecrafting to Runecrafting Level 99 will unlock the Runecrafting Skillcape (item).svg Runecrafting Skillcape for purchase from the Shop. Equipping the Runecrafting Skillcape provides a +35% Chance to preserve Runecrafting resources.
