|Examine|| She is in charge of the Runecrafting Guild.|
|Notable features||Exchanges Runecrafting Guild Tokens for reward items.|
Wizard Elriss is an established member of the Runecrafting Guild, a section of the revolutionary Wizards' Tower (enter through portal on first floor) in southern Misthalin. Elriss, apart from managing the guild, is also its shop owner, selling goods in exchange for Runecrafting guild tokens.
Elriss is not only the guild's founder, manager, and store-owner, but also an esteemed magical theorist and researcher. Perhaps her most significant research pertains to an ancient artefact known as the Eye of Saradomin, an object which she believes is the origin of runes and magic. She has hidden this theory for years, although she will share some of her findings if players speak to her while wearing an activated Ring of charos.
Elriss runs a large shop stocking many runecrafting and magic-related rewards for the Great Orb Project activity. These include all existing Runecrafting talismans except death and blood talismans, teleportation tablets that take players to the various runecrafting altars (NOT inside, just outside the altar's entrance), runecrafting robes of varying types, runecrafting staves, and pure essence.
If a player gives her all 12 Runecrafting talismans or tiaras (she does NOT take them, and a mix of both works), she will give the player an Omni-talisman, as well as a one-time 13,605 Runecrafting experience.
Research and achievements
Wizard Elriss is among the most well-established of the Runecrafting Guild's number, responsible for creating the guild after the events of the Rune Mysteries quest in the Year 169 of the Fifth Age. Elriss created the guild in the "shadow" of the original Wizards' Tower, a pocketed area of space that functions in much the same way as the runecrafting altars.
Elriss's most revolutionary research regards an ancient artefact that, according to a number of the Tower's ancient texts, created rune essence. This Eye of Saradomin is, in fact, the Stone of Jas, a relic of the Elder Gods which Guthix used to create much of Gielinor's life and magic. The Stone of Jas, after being rediscovered by a Fremennik seer at the beginning of the Fifth Age, has since disappeared, and Elriss is amongst the few still searching for it.
After years of research and planning, Elriss believes she is getting close to locating this object, which she claims gives off a powerful magical resonance. She elaborates on her method of locating the power, if persuaded with the Ring of Charos by players wearing a full set of Runecrafting Robes. Apparently, she is somehow using the energies of the rune altars to triangulate a rough target location.
Her estranged ex-boyfriend is also searching for the artefact, spurring her to greater speeds and efforts. This coincides with the research of Movario and Darve, two Lucien followers searching for a similarly-described object in Dorgesh-Kaan South Dungeon.
There is a possibility that Elriss's ex-boyfriend is, indeed, Movario, himself. Movario is known to have done a lot of research on the Stone of Jas. One of the possible places where he could have done his research is at Wizard Tower. Elriss's ex-boyfriend is also said to be a treasure hunter, which is what Movario does.
