Pure essence is a raw material used in the Runecraft skill to make runes. They can create the air, mind, water, earth, fire, body, cosmic, chaos, astral, nature, law, death, wrath and any combination runes. Pure essence does not provide any bonus over rune essence when crafting runes lower than cosmic runes; therefore, when crafting lower-tier runes, it is recommended to use whichever essence is less expensive at the time.
There are a few ways of obtaining rune essence, other than by trading with other players.
Players may mine rune/pure essence in the rune essence mine, unlocked after completing the Rune Mysteries quest. To reach these mines, players need to be teleported by one of several NPCs. Players will mine Rune essence until reaching level 30 Mining when they will automatically mine pure essence. Mining from one of the rocks that have an unlimited supply of essence gives 5 Mining experience per essence. Pickaxes are needed, just like any other mining activity.
