Tl;dr from what I understand, some aviansies get magic from spirits than from runes.

That's-- Not what I got from that at all XD
I mean, I wouldn't doubt that they probably DO use spirit-based magic - we do that with summoning and prayer - I don't think it serves as some replacement for magic in their society. Not every race had/has access to full-scale magic, yanno? Aviantese never really struck me as a super magically-inclined race.

Maybe not, but they do have an entire section of their army devoted to war magicks, so I'd say that they have as much as at least the gnomes. Just because we don't see it constantly doesn't mean it's not there.


None of the aviansie in the GWD use magic - only melee and ranged, according to the wiki. Well, besides one of Kree's bodyguards.

I'm pretty sure the spiritual warriors of any faction are deceased members of that faction that just refuse to pass on because they have unfinished business and all that jazz - so the Armadyl ones probably are Aviansie, but they're outdated models. That said, I'm not sure if spirits have the same limitations on their use of magic as living beings do, so the spiritual mages miiight be a bad example.
And, the Bird and the Beast mages look to be humans.

That said, there's still Kree's lieutenant mage, and the head warmage from Bird and the Beast, so aviansie undoubtedly DO have their own magic - hopefully we get to learn more about it. They do seem to have a lesser percentage of mages compared to other races and forces, though, but that's probably because they just aren't as common in-game.

Aviansie would definitely need runes for "normal" magic like most higher plane races, it's just that most higher plane races have other means of using different forms magic, like elves with their crystalline magic. So them discovering magic once they got access to runes is definitely a likely answer, though they evidently have spiritual mumbo-jumbo on their homeworld. It's also possible that Armadyl pulled a Bandos and just straight-up gifted magical abilities to a handful of his followers. Mods pls notice me
