Interacting with the Rune Goldberg Machine found on the eastern side of the Runecrafting Guild opens up an interface in which various runes may be input into three slots. A coloured face indicates how optimal each rune is (in that slot), with a green smiley being most optimal and a red frown being least optimal. The combination of runes required to produce the full 100 vis wax output changes daily and varies slightly between players. The runes follow these trends:
  • The first rune will be the same for all players.
  • The second rune varies between three runes for all players.
  • The third rune is completely random and depends on trial-and-error to find.

The trial-and-error aspect of the machine also takes a toll on the overall profit, by increasing the number of runes needed slightly with each unsuccessful attempt. As such, to mitigate loss, players may wish to join a dedicated Friends Chat which may provide information on the first two rune slots.


  • The runes can be input directly from the bank without needing to take them to the machine.
  • Depending on market value, certain runes (usually combination runes) may cause a loss of profit. To prevent this, players are recommended to substitute that slot with a less optimal rune that yields a higher net profit.
