RuneScape 1-99 Runecrafting Guide
Runecrafting is one of the most time consuming but also worthwhile skills. This guide includes some of the methods for F2P and P2P runecrafting. Many previous runecrafting guides are out of date because there have been updates which make runecrafting faster.
This guide will be split into two part – F2P and P2P. There will also be several methods at different stages, varying in speed and profit.
For every method, use a tiara of the appropriate altar. You can also use runecrafting gloves from the Fist of Guthix minigame to get extra experience.
1-14 Air runes
14-26 Fire runes
26-50 Earth runes (the takes a while)
50-60 GOP. I would recommend this because you will get very bored if you continue crafting earth runes. It is also quite quick to level this much at GOP and you will soon be able to earn decent amounts of experience there when you learn to play the minigame.
1. Continue crafting Earth runes
2. Play more of the Great Orb Project to buy Water tablets. Teleport to the altar with the tab, use a cabbage teleport to bank.
It is recommended that you complete the Zamorak Mage miniquest as it will make runecrafting much easier. The Zamorak Mage is located north of Edgeville in the wilderness, at the starting point of the river. Use all of the runecrafting pouches available to you. You can also use tabs from GOP instead of running to and from altar.
1-14 Air runes
14-44 Fire runes (use a ring of duelling to teleport to duel arena, then castle wars to bank)
44-50 Nature runes. Either teleport to the altar using a Graakh, or use the Abyss (available if you have xompleted the Zamorak Mage miniquest).
14-50 Fire runes (above method). Although you will make money by runecrafting nature runes, fire runes are faster experience.
50-60 Great orb project (same reasons as f2p)
60-99 Nature runes (nature runes are faster than law runes because the law altar is far away from the portal)
65-77 Death runes (requires Mournings End Part II)
77-82 Blood runes (requires Legacy of Seergaze)
82-99 Astral runes (requires Lunar Diplomacy, fast method because you do not need to go into the altar)
This method is quite profitable.
75-99 Ouranias (ZMI) altar (Lunar Diplomacy strongly recommended). This is fast but you will not make as much money
91-99 Nature runes (slow but profitable)
