Mind rune detail.png

Mind runes are a type of non-elemental rune. Mind runes can either be bought from Aubury's Rune Shop in Varrock, created from rune essence through the Runecrafting skill, procured from drops by killing monsters or picked up from spawns on the ground. Mind runes are used for the spells Confuse, Stagger, Enchant Crossbow Bolt (Sapphire) and Monster Examine.

The Mind Altar is located north of Falador, in between the Goblin Village and the Ice Mountain, very near to the Wilderness. Mind runes are craftable at level 1 using the Runecrafting skill. Crafting mind runes provides 5.5 Runecrafting experience per rune or pure essence used (154 xp for a full inventory).

Additionally, Aubury gives away 30 free mind and air runes every 30 minutes.

There is a Falador Task in the hard section to craft 140 Mind runes at the same time.
