Air runes are one of the four basic elemental runes. They are the most basic and most common runes in RuneScape. All players who have completed the Rune Mysteries quest can craft air runes with a Runecrafting level of 1 at the air altar west of Varrock. Crafting air runes provides 5 Runecrafting experience per rune or pure essence used (140 xp for an entire inventory).
The magic tutor in Lumbridge formerly supplied players with 30 air runes and 30 mind runes, provided that player has no runes in their inventory or bank, and it has been 30 minutes since they last claimed items from either the magic or ranged tutor, though this feature has since been removed. Now, all players can obtain thirty air and mind runes from Aubury of Varrock instead samples; after a half hour, one can re-obtain all thirty air and mind runes.
Air runes are needed in a vast amount of spells, as shown by the list below. Because of all the spells that require air runes, many mages will instead use a staff of air, air battlestaff or mystic air staff.
All players can cast these spells.
Only members can cast these spells:
