These items are used in the Runecrafting skill.



A Talisman is attuned to the Runecrafting altar after which is it named. For example, an Air talisman is attuned to the Air altar. A player can use the talismans to reach the altars via the 'mysterious ruins' found throughout Gielinor. Players cannot use the talismans until they have completed the Rune Mysteries quest, but it is perfectly possible to acquire talismans, from drops or trading, prior to starting the quest. A talisman can be used repeatedly to enter its altar and is never consumed for this. The talisman only grants access to it altar; the player must have the correct runecrafting level to craft runes there.

Talismans are also used to make Combination runes and are consumed in this process.

A talisman can be bound with a Tiara, creating an altar-accessing item that be worn on the head rather than carried in inventory. All talismans except the Elemental talisman can be bound in this way.

A talisman can be bound with a Runecrafting staff, creating an altar-accessing talisman staff that be wielded rather than carried in inventory. All talismans except the Elemental talisman can be bound in this way.

Note that players using the Abyss to reach the runecrafting altars do not require talismans (or other items like a tiara or talisman staff).

Most types of talismans can be purchased from Wizard Elriss in the Runecrafting Guild. Only Runecrafting guild tokens (awarded upon finishing games of The Great Orb Project) can be used to purchase these talismans. Wizard Elriss does not sell death, blood, elemental, or omni talismans.

Tiaras are simply an equipable version of talismans, which free up an inventory slot. A player can combine a specific talisman with an ordinary silver Tiara to get an 'infused' tiara. To do this, a player must have both objects in their inventory and use either one on the corresponding altar. This action also earns the player some Runecrafting experience, shown in the table below. Additionally, making one of these tiaras does not have a Runecrafting level requirement. All tiaras are tradeable except the Omni-tiara. When worn, these tiaras allow a simple left-click 'Enter Mysterious ruins' option to access the altars.

Talisman staves

Talisman staves are made by using a Runecrafting staff on an altar with the kind of talisman you want on it. For example, if you want an Air talisman staff you must go to an air altar with the Runecrafting staff and air talisman, then use the staff on the altar. A Runecrafting staff is sold at the Runecrafting Guild by Wizard Elriss for 10,000 Runecrafting guild tokens.

The staff can be equipped in the weapon's slot, allowing players to left click on the altar to get inside, saving an inventory space. These talisman staves may be used to access the particular altars they represent. Jagex had also said that the staff can also be used for "distracting the eyes in the Abyss to help you sneak past".

All talisman staves have the following bonuses, with the exception of the Law talisman staff, which has no combat bonuses to allow it to be taken to Entrana. These staffs are the best weapons available to "obby pures" with only 1 attack in a free-to-play world. With no combat requirements, requiring only 50 runecrafting, the +33 strength bonus is extremely high, compared to that of an Iron 2h sword, which is only +14.
