|Examine||A generic elemental rune|
Elemental runes can replace the function of air, water, earth, or fire runes, hence this term can also refer to the class of runes used in Combat spells, see table below. They are unique runes used in the Barbarian Assault, Fist of Guthix, and Stealing Creation minigames. Each rune can act as either a single fire, air, water, or earth rune.
|Rune type||RC level||G.E. value|
In Fist of GuthixEdit
At the beginning of every Fist of Guthix minigame, each player receives 1,000 elemental runes, along with 300 catalytic runes. In Fist of Guthix, when players put elemental runes in the price checker, it says that they are worth 2 gold each, even though the runes cannot be brought outside of the minigame.
In Stealing CreationEdit
Unlike Fist of Guthix, during the Stealing creation minigame players must make their own elemental runes as well as catalytic runes. These are processed in a special kiln from one of 5 grades of sacred clay and yield different amounts of runes. Players must have higher Runecrafting levels to process higher levels of sacred clay as shown in this table:
|Class of clay||Amount made||Level to make|
|Class 1||15||Level 1 Runecrafting|
|Class 2||30||Level 20 Runecrafting|
|Class 3||45||Level 40 Runecrafting|
|Class 4||60||Level 60 Runecrafting|
|Class 5||75||Level 80 Runecrafting|
In Barbarian AssaultEdit
In Barbarian Assault attackers can retrieve these runes from the Attacker dispenser stand.
In the Dominion TowerEdit
If a player is fighting in the Dominion Tower and their opponent is one that requires them to use magic, elemental runes may be provided on the ground for use against the boss.
