The Body altar is located south of the Monastery and west of the Barbarian Village.

At 7.5 experience per rune essence, it is the highest Runecrafting experience if the person is only using normal rune essence, but to get access to the body altar, a person must be at a minimum Runecrafting level of 20.

The 'Temple of the Body' (as is the name given to actual runecrafting area) is a pink, heart-shaped area, reflecting the "body" element of the rune. The roots are coloured purple so they resemble blood vessels. With the introduction of The Great Orb Project minigame, the body altar received a graphical makeover and now the roots resemble pulsating blood vessels. Soft heartbeat sounds can also be heard from the altar. The Body altar is also uniquely loveheart shaped. The closest bank for non-members is located in Edgeville. The closest bank for members is located in Soul Wars.

The quickest way to get there is through the body altar teleport tablet. These tablets can be obtained from the Great Orb Project for Tokens obtained in the minigame. Other ways include using the Combat bracelet's Monastery teleport, or the Skull sceptre's teleport to Barbarian Village. However, the latter can only be used several times before it breaks.

The music track "Heart and Mind" is unlocked at the Body Altar.


  • The overall shape of the altar is that of a heart.
  • The veins in walls of the altar seems to be beating.
  • In the Great Orb Project, there is currently a glitch which allows a player to get stuck between a specific tangle of veins by making barriers and then passing through them. If a person not from the game gets stuck, the only way out for that player is if the player teleports.
