Runecrafting Guide for New Players

Runecrafting

Runecrafting is the art of creating runes using Rune Slates and Essence gathered from doing activities within the game. You can see how to earn certain essences by hovering over each essence, while Rune Slates are primarily gained from Mining. You also gain 1 Runecrafting Shard for every five minutes you spend doing actions.

Every 20 levels you have in Runecrafting will increase the amount of Runes made per action by 1. This is also increased by 1 when you consume a Talisman for the first time.

You have a base rune crafting amount of (value) runes per action, with a (percent) chance to craft an extra.

Each Rune crafted is worth 25 experience. Without any additional Factors, you will earn at least (value) experience per action.

Cloth Weaving

Runecrafting can additionally create Imbued Cloth, which requires Aquatic Fibers gathered from Fishing. Cloth Weaving is not affected by standard Runecrafting Enchants, other than Efficiency and Haste. Rarely when weaving cloth, you’ll find Ancient Cloth Fragments, which can be used to craft an Abandoned Academy Scroll. This is a solo Gathering Dungeon that will scale off your Fishing and Runecrafting levels.
