Runecrafting talismans allow runecrafters to locate and gain access to Runecrafting altars through mysterious ruins. Even if a runecrafter memorises the location of the mysterious ruins, they will be enable to enter them and get to the altar without an appropriate talisman. Each type of talisman gives you access to its matching Runecrafting altar. It is only at these altars that runes can be made.

Below is a table of talismans and where you can obtain them.

Talk-to Wizard Elriss in the Runecrafting Guild about the omni-talisman and then show her one of every other talisman/tiara (not including the elemental talisman).

Talismans can also be bought on the Grand Exchange, apart from the omni-talisman which can only be obtained from the Runecrafting Guild.

Talismans are also required when making combination runes and some Summoning pouches.


Tiaras perform the same function as talismans - they allow you to gain access to Runecrafting altars. Tiaras have an advantage over talismans, however, in that you can wear them on your head, freeing an extra space in your inventory to carry essence. See the article on silver tiaras for information on how to craft them.

Once you have made a silver tiara, you can enchant it to allow you to access the altar of your choice.

To enchant a tiara you must:

  1. Take your silver tiara to your chosen altar. You will also need the matching talisman for the altar.
  2. Use the tiara on the altar, the talisman will be consumed and your tiara will now be enchanted.
