Runecrafting

Runecrafting is a skill which allows the player to craft runes using Rune Essence and Pure Essence, as well as Magic equipment 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 15% to 1.7 seconds.

Further reductions in interval are possible in the Throne of the Herald Expansion, including the Elite Pillar of Expertise for a for a 3% interval reduction, Harold for a 2% interval reduction, and the Eagle + Crow synergy for a 10% interval reduction. Additionally, the Cool Winds Gloves provide a 0.1 second interval reduction. Altogether, this can reduce the runecrafting interval to a minimum of 1.3 seconds.

The amount of runes created per action increases with the 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 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 for purchase from the Shop. Equipping the Runecrafting Skillcape provides a +15% chance to double items in Runecrafting and increases the number of runes per craft by 5. The Superior Runecrafting Skillcape becomes available at Runecrafting Level 120, improving on the previous cape's bonuses by providing a +25% chance to Double Items in Runecrafting, +10% rune preservation, and 8 additional runes per craft.
