Lava runecrafting is a high-level runecrafting method that involves crafting lava runes. These runes are a combination of earth and fire runes, which can be extremely profitable when crafted in large quantities. To access this method, you’ll need to have completed the “Rune Mysteries” quest and achieved a minimum runecrafting level of 23.

Gear and Inventory

Before embarking on a lava runecrafting journey, gather the necessary equipment. You’ll need:

  • Earth Talisman or Tiara: Essential for accessing the altar.
  • Fire Tiara: To enter the Fire Altar. You can also use a Fire Talisman combined with a Tiara.
  • Binding Necklace (Optional): This necklace can save you runes by automatically binding essence into lava runes, making it a valuable investment.
  • Runecrafting Pouches: Small, medium, large, and giant pouches can store essence, increasing your crafting efficiency.
  • Weight-Reducing Gear: Reduces your run energy consumption for longer trips.
  • Teleportation Items: Amulets of glory, runes for teleport spells, or fairy rings to reach the altar quickly.

Stockpile pure essence in your inventory or pouches. The more essence you bring, the longer your trips will be, maximizing your rune output.
