Location on World Map
Crafting Guild Air altar Draynor Village

The Air altar may be found south of Falador, north-west of the first T-junction you come across after exiting the south gate. It is used to craft air runes from rune essence or pure essence, providing 5 Runecrafting experience per essence.


The location of the air altar.

As with most other runecrafting altars, it can be accessed via the Abyss. Players can also enter its ruins by using an air talisman. Players can also simply click on the ruins while wearing an air tiara. The closest bank from there is Falador's east bank.

Players who have completed the hard Falador Diary have the ability to use a bank chest in the Crafting Guild and can use the skills necklace to teleport there and is a short run to the air altar.

Combination Runes

It is possible to make mist runes, dust runes, and smoke runes while at this altar, but at a 50% success rate. This will result in fewer runes than normal being made. To make a combination rune, the player needs one set of elemental runes, a stack of pure essence, and 2 talismans.

Note that you need to use the opposing rune on the altar to craft combination runes. Simply clicking on the altar would just result in regular elemental runes.

Magic Imbue negates the need of a talisman.

If the player equips a binding necklace, the success rate will increase to 100%. The necklace has a total of 16 uses before breaking. A charge is used each time a batch of combination runes is crafted, instead of each time the altar is entered or for each rune crafted.

An air tiara may be created at this altar by using an air talisman and a normal tiara in your inventory. The player must use the tiara on the altar. Doing so will earn 25 Runecrafting experience.
