Understanding Soul Runecrafting

The Basics

Soul Runecrafting, introduced with the release of the “Dark Altar” in Zeah, is a skill that enables players to craft soul runes from dark essence fragments. These runes are vital for high-level magic and prayer spells and are highly sought after in the game.

Dark Essence Fragments

Before diving into Soul Runecrafting, you need to obtain dark essence fragments, which are extracted from dense runestones. These runestones can be found in the Arceuus essence mine. To mine dark essence, players must have at least 38 Mining.

Gaining Experience and Profits


Soul Runecrafting offers decent experience rates, especially at higher levels. Be patient and consistent, and you’ll gradually see your Runecrafting skill grow.


Soul runes are always in demand due to their usefulness in high-level content. Selling them can be quite profitable, making Soul Runecrafting a lucrative skill to master.
