Tune Bane Ore is a Lunar spell which requires 87 Magic (can be boosted) and partial completion of the Ritual of the Mahjarrat quest. Players learn the spell in Kethsi where they find and read the tune bane ore scroll. It requires 2 astral runes, 4 earth runes, 1 bane ore in your inventory and an item related to the monster that the bane ore is to be tuned to:
*The mounted heads can be in the player's own house, or in another player's house.
When the spell is cast on one of these items, it will tune the bane ore into a bane ore related to the monster. The monster-related item will not be destroyed in this process. The spell has a make-x/make-all option when cast with multiple ores in the inventory. Previously, all ore in the inventory will be tuned in one instance, with experience received for each ore but at some point this was changed and now one cast will tune one ore.
The tuned bane ore can then be smelted into a bane bar (related to the same monster), which can then be smithed on a Kethsian anvil into arrowtips or unfeathered bolts, which, when completed, do extra damage to the specified monster.
Tertiaries are also required, as specified above.
- It is revealed during Koschei's Troubles that Kharshai forged Balmung out of bane ore and tuned it against dagannoth.
