Mist rune detail

Mist runes are combination runes. They count as two separate runes: one water rune and one air rune. Thus, any spell requiring one water rune, one air rune or both will spend only one mist rune.

Runecrafting Mist RunesEdit

At Runecrafting level 6 or higher, they can be crafted in either of two ways:

Tiaras can't be used in place of talismans while crafting combination runes. Players receive 8.0 experience for combining water runes at the Air Altar and 8.5 for combining air runes at the Water Altar. Combinations have a 50% success rate (or 100%, if the player is wearing a binding necklace), and the talisman is consumed in the process (unless the player uses the Lunar spell Magic Imbue).


This is one of the combination runes released with the Abyss update. Mist runes are also used in the quest Swan Song.

Members may purchase mist runes from Mage Training Arena, north of Duel Arena (unlimited stock; trade minigame points).

  • As with all combination runes, the most amount needed for a spell is 30, for the Charge Orb spell series.
  • The mist rune inventory icon, along with the other combination runes, was unaffected by the update on 9 June 2010. The other runes were slightly twisted.
