Blood runes are members-only runes used in the Magic skill for many spells in Ancient Magicks, enchanting Ruby bolt(e) in the Standard spellbook plus several spells in the Lunar Spells.
Blood runes are dropped by a large range of monsters, such as
Fire giants, Aviansies, and Shadow warriors. They may be stolen from the chest in the Chaos Druid Tower north-west of Ardougne, purchased from many magic store owners, such as the Mage of Zamorak, or received as a fairly common loot from the Barrows chest. There is also a respawn point near the Demonic Ruins in the Wilderness.
22 April 2008, it was not possible to craft blood runes by any means other than the Ourania altar. Blood runes can now be crafted (with at least level 77 Runecrafting) at the Blood Altar using pure essence after completing the Legacy of Seergaze quest, and give 10.5 experience each (If you are wearing the complete Master runecrafting robes, then this is 10.78 experience each).
The value of 1 Blood rune in
Mobilising Armies is 111 Investment Credits.
Blood runes are also used to recharge the
Blood amulet of fury, Brawler's blood necklace, Farsight blood necklace, and Arcane blood necklace.
Blood runes are needed in certain combat pay-to-play spells and some other non-combat pay-to-play spells. Below is a list of spells in which Blood runes are used, as well as their respective spellbooks.

Long before 22 April 2008, players who achieved 77 Runecrafting would get a message that they can now craft blood runes even though Legacy of Seergaze hadn't been released at the time.
Prior to the Evolution of Combat update, blood runes were used in high-level combat spells in the standard spellbook. The removal of their usage in these spells caused a dramatic fall in their price.
