At average speeds, one can do about 8 trips to the blood altar per hour, producing 204 blood runes on each.

Players should mine an inventory full of dense essence blocks at the dense runestone mine, run to the dark altar to turn them into dark essence blocks, and chip them with a chisel into dark essence fragments. Then, players should run back to the dense runestone mines and mine another inventory full of dense essence blocks, turn into dark essence fragments, and run to the blood altar south-west of the dark altar.

Once there, craft the fragments in the inventory into runes, chisel the remaining blocks, and runecraft them as well. Run back to the dense runestone mine (with 73 Agility, there is a shortcut available) and repeat.
