Lava rune detail.png

Lava runes are combination runes that count as two separate runes: one Fire rune and one Earth rune. Thus, any spell requiring one Fire rune, one Earth rune or both will spend only one Lava rune.

They can be created with the Runecrafting skill or purchased with Pizazz points from the Mage Training Arena.

When equipped, the Lava battlestaff and Mystic lava staff will act as an unlimited number of Lava runes.

10 Lava runes and 10 Mist runes are required for the completion of Swan Song. In addition, crafting Lava runes at the Fire altar is a medium task in the Lumbridge & Draynor Diary.

Runecrafting Lava runes

At Runecrafting level 23 or higher, they can be crafted in several ways:

Tiaras will not work in place of talismans while crafting the runes. Creating Lava runes has a 50% success rate or 100% if the player is wearing a binding necklace. The talisman is also consumed in the process unless the player is under the effect of Magic Imbue.
