Fire rune detail.png

The fire rune is one of the four basic elemental runes. Fire runes can be created from Rune essence or Pure essence through the Runecrafting skill, procured from drops by killing monsters, bought from other players, or picked up from spawns on the ground. Fire giants are among the monsters that drop fire runes often and in large quantities. Fire runes can be created using the Runecrafting skill at level 14 at the Fire altar in Al Kharid, which gives 7 experience per essence used. Lava staves are a great alternative to saving on fire runes.

Runecrafting fire runes is one of the fastest ways to achieve 44 Runecrafting for natures, through the use of rings of dueling. Players can teleport to Castle Wars to bank and then walk/run to Wizard Cromperty located in East Ardougne north-east of the market place to teleport back to the Rune Essence. Then you can teleport to the Al Kharid Duel Arena entrance, which is close to the fire altar. This method uses two charges per trip, allowing four trips per dueling ring. From 14 to 44 Runecrafting, one can expect to use over 100 dueling rings. Players can complete Enter the Abyss to unlock a small pouch to increase carrying capacity by 2 essences. At 25 Runecrafting, medium pouches can be used, allowing a total of 7 additional essences per trip.

Fire runes spawn on the ground inside the Karamja volcano, where the Lesser demons are. There are five spawns here, each with one fire rune. However, it is not recommended that players gather fire runes here because it is slow and dangerous.
