Mist rune detail.png

Mist runes are combination runes. They count as two separate runes: one water rune and one air rune. Thus, any spell requiring one water rune, one air rune or both will spend only one mist rune.

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

10 Lava runes and 10 Mist runes are required for the completion of Swan Song.

Runecrafting mist runes

At Runecrafting level 6 or higher, they can be crafted in either of two ways:

Tiaras will not work in place of talismans while crafting combination runes. Combinations have a 50% success rate (or 100%, if the player is wearing a binding necklace), and the talisman is consumed in the process (unless the player uses the Lunar spell Magic Imbue).
