Aubury's Rune Shop is a rune shop that sells elemental runes. It is run by Aubury. It is located in the south-east of Varrock behind the east bank.

Despite the shop's small size, it is often quite crowded, especially on non-members worlds. This is due to the fact that apart from being a popular rune shop, it is the only convenient way for non-members to teleport to the rune essence mine except with Wizard Sedridor in Wizards' Tower, which is far from Draynor Village bank

Aubury offers free samples of 30 air runes and 30 mind runes, primarily for new players trying to experiment with magic.

Many macroers used to auto-buy runes from the shop in free worlds. In addition, other macros used Aubury to teleport to the rune essence mine, mainly on members worlds to mine Pure essence. They then sell the runes or collected essence from whatever they did on crowded worlds. However, there is a mugger in close proximity to the area. For this reason, players often see macroers dying in the shop. This lead to some of the macroers training to level 13 combat so the mugger wouldn't attack them. The mugger has since been removed.


  • After the update to the quest Rune Mysteries on 28 November, 2012, it is no longer required to complete the quest in order to teleport to the Rune Essence mine.
