Tune Bane Ore

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:

Item used Ore created Effective against
Abyssal head
Abyssal head (stuffed)
Abyssal demon head (mounted)*
Abyssalbane ore Abyssal demons
Basilisk head
Basilisk head (stuffed)
Basilisk head (mounted)*
Basiliskbane ore Basilisks

Dragon bones

Blue dragon scale
Green dragonhide

Royal dragonhide
King black dragon head
King black dragon head (stuffed)
King black dragon head (mounted)*

Dragonbane ore Dragons
Skull piece
Fibula piece
Ribcage piece
Wallasalkibane ore Wallasalki

*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.

Unlocking the Tune Bane Ore spell is one of the requirements needed to wear both the master quest cape and the completionist cape.
