Fire rune detail

The fire rune is one of the four basic elemental runes. Fire runes can be created from Rune essence or Pure essence through the Runecrafting skill, procured from drops by killing monsters, bought from other players, picked up from spawns on the ground, or can sometimes be found inside barrels. Fire giants are among the monsters that drop fire runes often and in large quantities.

Fire runes can be created using the Runecrafting skill at level 14 with a Fire talisman or Fire tiara at the Fire altar in Al-Kharid, which gives 7 experience per essence used.

PricesEdit

In the 180 days leading up to 11 December 2009, 8.5 billion fire runes were traded in the Grand Exchange, and 12.9 billion in the 180 days leading up to 10 August 2010. This averages out to 829 per second, peaking on busy days at over 1650 per second. By 25 August 2010 13.1 billion had been traded in 180 days, which is 842 per second. After a brief dip, this rose again to 13.7 billion over 180 days up until 9 December 2010, 880 per second. It reached its peak in late June 2011, when 2.8 billion fire runes are traded in a mere 7 days, or over 4600 per second.

They are currently sold for 61 coins each in the Grand Exchange, or for 17 coins in stores when there are no fire runes in the player stock.

For a long time, fire runes had a price floor of 9 coins each in the Grand Exchange. Fire runes reached this price floor, and for over a year, they were very difficult to sell in the Grand Exchange, and would buy instantly. However, in September 2009, Jagex changed the price floor from 9 coins each to 5 coins each. Fire runes were then easily both bought and sold on the Grand Exchange.

Following the release of the Polypore staff, the price of fire runes rose due to the popularity of the staff and the fact that it is charged using 15,000 fire runes, using five per cast. This increased the price dramatically and caused some turbulence on the market.

Fire runes often enter the top 10 for most traded items every week.

SpellsEdit

Fire runes are used in a large number of spells, as listed below.

When casting a spell requiring fire runes, the fire rune requirement may be eliminated by wielding a staff that gives infinite fire runes, such as a staff of fire, fire battlestaff, lava battlestaff, mystic fire staff, mystic steam staff or mystic lava staff. Staves of fire can be bought from Zaff's Superior Staves! shop in Varrock.

TriviaEdit

  • Jack used a fire and an air rune to make fire in the First Age.
  • Fire runes are the only elemental runes to not have their own runecrafting gloves.
  • The fire rune is the most traded item on the Grand Exchange. This is likely because they are dropped in large quantities by a variety of monsters and are commonly used by players training magic.
