Runecrafting is a skill which allows the player to craft runes using Rune Essence (item).svg Rune Essence, as well as magic Magic (skill).svg Magic Gear 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. 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 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.
