Body talisman detail.png

The body talisman is an item used in the Runecrafting skill. It allows players to enter the body altar and create body runes from rune essence or pure essence.

At the body altar, a body talisman can be combined with a tiara to make a body tiara for 37.5 Runecrafting experience by using the tiara on the altar. This will make the talisman disappear, but the body tiara also grants access to the body altar when worn. Both the tiara and the talisman allow players to use the Runecrafting skill.

Body talismans can be obtained as drops from guards, wizards, hill giants, and dark wizards. The fastest way to get the talisman as a drop is by killing a guard. The drop rate from guards is about 1/21 (4.5%)

The body talisman can be used on the wicked hood, giving the hood two free teleports to the body altar, and 100 free body runes every day. This will consume the talisman.
