Ores 4 Pure/Rune essence rocks

Most rune essence in Gielinor comes from one source - the rune essence mine. The only way to access it is to be teleported to the mine by one of the following characters:

NPC Location
Archmage Sedridor The second floor of the Wizards' Tower, south of Draynor Village.
Wizard Cromperty East Ardougne, north-east of the market place.
Wizard Distentor The Wizards' Guild in Yanille.
Aubury The rune shop in Varrock, south of the east bank.
Brimstail the gnome A cave in the Tree Gnome Stronghold. Head north-west in the Stronghold until you see a small bridge on the west side. Brimstail's cave is inside a large hollow rock to the east of the bridge.
Carwen Essencebinder Northern building in Burthorpe, next to the Loyalty Shop tent.


Regardless of which person you speak to, they will all teleport you to the same mine.

Inside the mine

A pillar of rune essence

Each time you enter the mine, you may appear at a slightly different spot. No matter where you end up, head to one of the corners where you will find massive pillars of essence. Use a pickaxe to mine the essence until your inventory is full. If you are a free player you will mine rune essence, while members who have at least level-30 Mining will receive pure essence.

When you are ready to leave, you will need to click on one of the magical portals near the essence pillars. These will transport you back to the location from which you entered the mine.

Lunar Isle

The mages of Lunar Isle have an essence mine of their own, located beneath the island. If you travel to the north-east corner of the island you will find a small building with a ladder heading down to the mine. As well as rune essence, the mine contains a number of ore and gem rocks.
