Location on World Map
Goblin Village Mind Altar Ice Mountain

The Mind altar is a runecrafting altar located far north of Falador in between the northern end of Ice Mountain and Goblin Village. It is used for crafting mind runes out of either rune essence or pure essence, granting 5.5 experience. One can teleport here using the mind altar teleport spell or tablet.


As with most other Runecrafting altars, it can be accessed via the Abyss. Players could also enter its ruins by using a mind talisman or simply click on the ruins while wearing a mind tiara.


The maximum likely limit for crafting Mind runes in one visit is 432. This would be achieved by having 98 Runecrafting, giving an 8x bonus, and carrying 54 essence to craft (24 in the normal inventory along with 30 in the 4 sizes of Runecrafting pouches.) The maximum possible experience is 297 obtained while doing the above.


A mind tiara may be created at this altar by having a mind talisman and a normal tiara in your inventory. The player must use the tiara on the altar. Doing so will earn 27.5 Runecrafting experience.

Location of the Mind Altar


  • The area inside the mind altar is shaped like a brain.
  • When examining a pile of rubble inside the mind altar, it will say "Broken parts of an old temple". This could mean that certain creatures once built a temple inside the Mind altar and lived in or visited the temple before it was destroyed by unknown forces.
