Fire rune

The fire rune is one of the four basic elemental runes. Fire runes can be created from Rune essence or Pure essence through the Runecrafting skill, procured from drops by killing monsters, bought from other players, or picked up from spawns on the ground. Fire giants are among the monsters that drop fire runes often and in large quantities. Fire runes can be created using the Runecrafting skill at level 14 at the Fire altar in Al-Kharid, which gives 7 XP per rune.

Fire runes and air runes are the most popular runes to craft in free-to-play.



Fire runes are one of the most traded items in the Grand Exchange. In the 180 days on 11 December, 2009, 8.5 billion fire runes were traded in the Grand Exchange, placing as the most traded item in RuneScape.

They are currently sold for 5 coins each in the Grand Exchange, or for 17 coins in stores when there are no fire runes in the player stock.

For a long time, fire runes had a price floor of 9 coins each in the Grand Exchange. Fire runes reached this price floor, and for over a year, they were very difficult to sell in the Grand Exchange, and would buy instantly. However, in September 2009, Jagex changed the price floor from 9 coins each to 5 coins each. Fire runes quickly crashed to 5 coins each, but the balance of supply and demand was such that fire runes did not stay at this new price floor, but rather increased in price to 7 coins each. Fire runes may now be easily both bought and sold on the Grand Exchange. Some players believe that the fire rune's price is lower than it should because quite a few monsters drop them regularly.


Fire runes are used in a large number of spells, as listed below.

When casting a spell requiring fire runes, the fire rune requirement may be eliminated by wielding a staff that gives infinite fire runes, such as a staff of fire, fire battlestaff, fire talisman staff, lava battlestaff, mystic fire staff, mystic steam staff or mystic lava staff. Staves of fire can be bought from Zaff's Superior Staffs! shop in Varrock.

Fire Strike, Fire Bolt, Fire Blast, Fire Wave and Fire Surge are the most powerful elemental spells and require fire runes, air runes, and one other rune. Even though more fire runes than air runes are required, fire runes are much cheaper than air runes, and therefore many people cast these spells while wielding an air staff, consuming fire runes.

Fire runes are also used in god spells.
