Steam rune detail.png

Steam runes are combination runes. They can be used as one fire rune and one water rune. Thus, any spell requiring one fire rune, one water rune or both will spend only one steam rune.

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

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

Runecrafting steam runes

At Runecrafting level 19 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).
