Rune full helm detail
Rune full helm chathead

The rune full helm is currently the best full helmet available to non-members. The rune full helm grants a greater armour rating than its medium helmet counterpart, though its price tag is approximately twice that of the regular helmet's. To wear this helmet, the player needs at least 50 Defence. A rune full helm can be obtained from monster drops, as a treasure trail reward, via the Smithing skill, or by trading with another player. Free players may only get rune full helms as drops from greater demons, trading, or smithing. This is among the most common rune item dropped, along with rune arrows, scimitars, and med helms.

Rune full helms are preferred over rune helms in almost all circumstances; the only reason a rune helm would be used in place of the full helm variety is if the player is low on funds and cannot afford the additional outlay.

To create a rune full helm, the player needs at least level 92 Smithing, a hammer and two rune bars. Smithing a rune full helm on an anvil grants 150 Smithing experience.

Rune full helms can also be heralded using a pluming stand, shield easel or banner easel. However, this will make the helm untradeable.

At level 30 Summoning, the rune full helm can be given to Pikkupstix to be enchanted to hold up to 600 Summoning scrolls.

The price range of a rune full helmet is usually steady, with small price drops or increases, that hardly last a few days.
