Rune Mysteries

From MineScape Wiki

Rune Mysteries is a novice level quest, and a requirement for mining rune essence within the Rune Essence mine or using lamps and books on runecraft.

Note that multiple air talismans can be obtained by using the drop trick at Duke Horacio. Grabbing 50-200 talismans can be useful for early runecraft training methods such as crafting air tiaras or mist runes. For details, see this guide.


Start point Speak to Duke Horacio on the Template:FloorNumber of Lumbridge Castle.
Official difficulty Novice
Description Recent research at the Wizards' Tower has found a way to create Runes for the first time in centuries. Assist the head wizard Sedridor in his research and he too may teach you these secrets!
Official length Short
Items required None
Recommended * Fast travel to Varrock (Varrock teleport, Chronicle or Ring of Wealth to the Grand Exchange or Combat Bracelet to the Champions' Guild)


Talk to Duke Horacio on the Template:FloorNumber of Lumbridge Castle, and ask him if he has any quests to give out. He will explain that although he himself has no tasks for the player, he did find a strange talisman. Curious about its origin, he will give you an air talisman and ask you to bring it to the arch mage of the Wizards' Tower. Note that at this point, it is possible to use the drop trick to collect any amount of spare air talismans, either for banking some Runecraft experience on ironman accounts, or for making a small amount of money. See the money making guide for more info.

Go to the Wizards' Tower, which is south of Draynor Village. Once there, descend the ladder into the basement and converse with Archmage Sedridor. He will take your air talisman and give you a research package. He will then instruct you to deliver it to Aubury in Varrock.

Aubury is located south of Varrock's east bank, inside of his rune shop. Talk to Aubury, and he will give you some notes and instruct you to deliver them back to Wizard Sedridor.

Make your way back to the Wizards' Tower, and talk to Archmage Sedridor once more. He will give you back your air talisman and will explain to you the basics of Runecraft.

Quest complete!
