Please note that as the altar is found on Entrana, no weapons, armour, familiars, summoning pouches, or summoning scrolls can be taken to the altar by any means possible. See the list of equipment for the complete list of allowed and banned items.
As with most other runecrafting altars, it can be accessed via the Abyss. Players can also enter its ruins by using a Law talisman or an Omni-talisman. Players can also simply click on the ruins while wearing a Law tiara, Omni-tiara, a Wicked hood imbued with any of the above, or a Law talisman staff.
Currently, the fastest way to get there is to use the Wicked hood's teleport, which can only be used two times daily, or three if all the Wicked robes have been purchased from the Runespan (not taking into account added Wicked hood teleport tokens). The second fastest way is to break a Law altar teleport tablet. Both of these methods teleport the player just outside of the altar. The Wicked hood can be obtained by talking to Tam McGrubor, and the teleport tablets by playing the Great Orb Project.
The maximum likely limit for crafting Law runes in one visit is 246. This would be achieved by having 90 Runecrafting and carrying 246 essence: 23 in the normal inventory, 48 in the 5 sizes of Runecrafting pouches, as well as the 175 which can be claimed from the wicked hood (if all the Wicked robes have been purchased). The maximum possible experience, without bonuses, is 2,337 if the above actions are performed.
- Inside the altar, the floor has a pattern which looks like a scale, one of the two items held by Lady Justice, whose likeness is found on many courts of law.
- Using the orb of oculus, one can see the Nature Altar to the west, the Body Altar to the east, and the kiss the frog random event to the south.
- The Law Altar was built by the Moon Clan, which was then a faction of the Fremennik mountain tribe. It is believed to have been built upon the very spot where Saradomin first set foot upon Gielinor in the Second Age.
- The Law Altar currently cannot be accessed with Omni-talisman staff, because it is not allowed on Entrana.
