Body rune detail

The body rune is a catalytic rune used for stat debuffs and various skilling spells.

Body runes may be made at level 20 Runecrafting using the Body altar west of Gunnarsgrunn and south of the Edgeville Monastery, giving the highest base experience rate in free-to-play runecrafting. They are the highest levelled runes that free players can craft (each rune essence crafted at the body altar gives 7.5 experience). The altar is also conveniently located for players walking between Falador and Varrock.
