Air runecrafting gloves are a reward that can be purchased with 75 tokens from the Fist of Guthix minigame or from Stanley Limelight for 80 thaler. They give double Runecrafting experience when crafting air runes. This effect lasts for the crafting of 1,000 rune essence, for a total of 10,000 exp (net gain 5,000 exp). After crafting 1,000 essence, they crumble to dust. The air runecrafting gloves require level 10 runecrafting to wear and are untradeable. You cannot have more than one pair of these gloves simultaneously. They are the lowest-levelled runecrafting gloves one can buy.
As with other runecrafting gloves, it cannot be used for assisting work if you are the runner in air running. Doing so will cause the assister to STEAL the charges from you! In contrast to this, a runecrafter who is air running can make full use of it as a rapid supply of essence is available to them.
When they are used up, the chat box says, "The charges in your gloves have been used up and they crumble to dust." Players can right-click on the gloves in their inventory and click "Inspect" to see how many charges they have left.
