Wearing the entire set will provide a 5% boost to Runecrafting experience, up to a maximum of 700 experience per action, for any Runecrafting activity. This boost will stack with other Runecrafting experience boosts such as when using Runecrafting gloves or when crafting runes in The Great Orb Project. The set does not provide any stat bonuses.
A space is provided in one's armour case, although the cosmetic robes have a space in the magic wardrobe.
When a player buys a part of the Runecrafter's set, a message will appear in the Adventurer's Log reading: I found master Runecrafter's [part]. Whilst playing The Great Orb Project, I won master Runecrafter's [part].
There was a glitch which prevented the player from travelling to Entrana while wearing the complete set. It was fixed on 27 March2012.
The robes received, as with all the other experience-boosting sets existing at that point, an increase to the boost they provided, from 2.5% to 5%. This update occurred on 26 September2012, but went official on 28 September alongside the 4 new experience-boosting sets.
