Blood rune detail

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 Lunar Spells.

Blood runes are dropped by a large range of monsters, such as Fire giants, Aviansies, Ankous, Bloodveld, 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.

Before 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 (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.

  • 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.
  • Prior to the Evolution of Combat update, blood runes were used in casting wave and surge spells in Daemonheim. Since they removed the requirement of using blood runes, they now serve no purpose in Daemonheim other than selling them. It is currently unknown what future purpose they will serve.
