From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape
The Death altar is a Runecrafting altar that can be used to convert pure essences into death runes.
Access to the altar requires completion of most of the Mourning's Ends Part II quest, and a Death talisman, a Death tiara, or one of the Omni-talisman items. The altar is also full of level 19 ghosts which can be attacked, although they are not aggressive.
Two players at the Death altar. Notice it looks like the inside of a cave.
How to get there
- Players who want to avoid using the Abyss (as it is located in the Wilderness) can start from Lletya and use the Underground Pass in reverse direction. The maze part with Agility obstacles leads to a tiny dwarf camp that has a crevice leading to the death altar.
- The main music, La Mort, is French for "The Death."
- If you chop the trees in the altar you will get charcoal instead of logs.
- The Death Altar portal in the Abyss is now a little more informative if you don't have the requirements due to updates on 9 November 2009.
