Air runecrafting gloves detail.png

Air runecrafting gloves are a reward that can be purchased with 75 tokens from the Fist of Guthix minigame or from Stanley Limelight for 80 thaler. They give double Runecrafting experience when crafting air runes. This effect lasts for the crafting of 1,000 rune essence, for a total of 10,000 exp (net gain 5,000 exp). After crafting 1,000 essence, they crumble to dust. The air runecrafting gloves require level 10 runecrafting to wear and are untradeable. You cannot have more than one pair of these gloves simultaneously. They are the lowest-levelled runecrafting gloves one can buy.

As with other runecrafting gloves, it cannot be used for assisting work if you are the runner in air running. Doing so will cause the assister to STEAL the charges from you! In contrast to this, a runecrafter who is air running can make full use of it as a rapid supply of essence is available to them.

When they are used up, the chat box says, "The charges in your gloves have been used up and they crumble to dust." Players can right-click on the gloves in their inventory and click "Inspect" to see how many charges they have left.

Using the gloves[edit | edit source]

Crafting air runes with these gloves gives the same amount of experience as crafting death runes, also you will only need Rune essence, which costs 30 coins compared with 26 coins for Pure essence. At level 44 you will create 5x air runes, this makes the air gloves very useful as the prices of air runes is currently 53 coins. You can make a slight profit even when buying the rune essence from the Grand Exchange, currently this profit is 235 per piece of rune essence. This is explained better in the table below. The gloves CANNOT be sold, only alched.

The following table assumes you are crafting 28 essence at a time, and buying the rune essence from the Grand Exchange:

Runecrafting level Multiplier Profit per essence Total Profit
10 x1 23 644
11 x2 76 2,128
22 x3 129 3,612
33 x4 182 5,096
44 x5 235 6,580
55 x6 288 8,064
66 x7 341 9,548
77 x8 394 11,032
88 x9 447 12,516
99 x10 500 14,000
