The Lunar spells are a set of spells contained in the Lunar spellbook. The spellbook is unlocked upon completion of the quest Lunar Diplomacy. Additionally, players unlock seven more spells with the completion of Dream Mentor, and eleven more spells by playing Livid Farm. While the other unlockable spellbook, Ancient Magicks, focuses primarily on combat spells, and the standard spellbook contains a mixture of all types of spells, the Lunar spellbook is almost entirely composed of noncombat spells. The Lunar spellbook includes teleportation spells, skill-related spells, spells that allow players to aid others in various ways, and miscellaneous spells with unique effects.
All Lunar spells make use of astral runes, with the exception of Home Teleport, which is free to cast, and Polypore Strike, which uses charges from the Polypore Staff rather than runes. Note that Lunar spells in general cost the most per cast out of any spellbook, overtaking even Ancient Magicks.
In total, the spellbook contains fifty-two spells.
The Lunar spellbook contains no direct combat spells that are cast on targets to deal damage, lower stats, or otherwise give negative effects (aside from Polypore Strike, which is included in all three spellbooks and requires the Polypore Staff). Instead, most Lunar spells are strictly noncombat spells which offer benefits to various skills such as Crafting and Farming. Furthermore, some Lunar spells allow players to aid others in various ways, such as curing poison, offering teleportation, and restoring life points. The Lunar spellbook is extremely popular as a support system in large group battles against monsters because of its ability to heal allies and then swiftly heal the caster of the spells. The spells become especially useful if users have completed Dream Mentor and can use Ancient Magicks, as the Spellbook Swap spell allows them to use the healing abilities of the Lunar spellbook and aggressive Ancient Magicks spells such as Ice Barrage.
A few Lunar spells can be used to indirectly influence combat. Vengeance and Vengeance Other are two highly sought-after spells which will reflect damage back to attacking monsters or players. Boost Potion Share and Stat Restore Pot Share are used to distribute stat-boosting and stat-restoring potions, respectively, to other players.
Some spells have individual effects that do not fit into any particular category. Monster Examine and Stat Spy allow the caster to view information about monsters and players, respectively. Dream significantly increases the rate at which life points regenerate. NPC Contact allows the caster to speak to several important NPCs from a distance. Spellbook Swap, the spell with the second highest Magic requirement in the Lunar spellbook after Borrowed Power, enables the caster to use a spell from a different spellbook.
On 15 May 2007, Jagex added 7 new spells that could be used after completing the Dream Mentor quest. The 7 spells are Monster Examine, Humidify, Hunter Kit, Stat Spy, Dream, Plank Make, and Spellbook Swap.
Skill and quest requirements
|Total level: 579|
In order to use the spellbook, the quest Lunar Diplomacy must be completed. This requires that players also complete The Fremennik Trials, Lost City, Rune Mysteries, and Shilo Village. To unlock more spells, the quest Dream Mentor must be completed, which further requires the player to have completed Eadgar's Ruse. The last set of spells can be unlocked by completing the Livid Farm. The skills required to unlock all the spells in the Lunar spell book can be seen in the table to the right.
Once the Lunar spellbook is unlocked, players can activate and deactivate it by praying at the astral altar on the southeastern peninsula of Lunar Isle. Unlike the altar in Jaldraocht Pyramid where players switch to and from Ancient Magicks, the astral altar will not drain Prayer points.
To reach the altar, players can use any of the following methods:
- Cast Home Teleport and select the Lunar Isle icon from the Lodestone Network interface.
- Break an astral altar teleport tablet, obtained from The Great Orb Project, or use the wicked hood teleport to teleport to the astral altar.
- Players already using Lunar spells can cast Moonclan Teleport or Tele-group Moonclan to teleport to the entrance to the town, and then run south past the suqahs to the altar.
- If a player still has the Seal of passage (obtained from Brundt the Chieftain), it can be used once per day to teleport to the entrance of the city on Lunar Isle.
Additionally, if you can access Prifddinas (requires Plague's End) and have completed the Hard Fremennik Province Tasks, you can switch between Lunar and normal spellbooks using the Elven grimoire in the same building as Haf's Battlestaves in the Cadarn Clan area.
All spells that affect players within a 3x3 area around the caster will also affect players standing in the caster's square.

- Spells marked with an asterisk ( * ) require completion of Dream Mentor to cast.
- Spells marked with two asterisks ( ** ) can be used once unlocked at the Livid Farm activity.
- Tune Bane Ore can only be used with the completion of Ritual of the Mahjarrat.
- No Lunar spells use chaos runes or soul runes.
- Of the various combination runes, only steam, smoke and mud runes can be useful for Lunar spells, as no Lunar spells use combinations of air and earth runes, fire and earth runes or water and air runes.
- Currently, Polypore Strike is the only spell in this book that can be autocasted due to the fact that there are no other combat spells.
- When the rest feature was added, the life point restore rate for the Dream spell was changed from three times faster to five times faster, then changed again in July 2016 to ten times faster in order to reflect changes made due to the EoC update.
- On 28 July 2009, the Lunar spell book received a graphical update.
- Prior to its removal, Energy transfer was a Lunar spell that when cast on another player, the targeted player received 100% of the caster's special attack energy and some run energy. This could only be cast in a multi combat area and only if the caster had a full special attack bar. It required level 91 magic and three astral runes, two law runes and one nature rune to be cast. It was removed with the introduction of the Evolution of Combat because special attack bars were removed, rendering this spell nearly useless.
- The Moonclan state that Lunar magic comes from the power of Gielinor's moon, which has since been revealed to be Zanaris. This may explain why the Lunar staff is a modified Dramen staff, the item used to reach Zanaris.
