Air talisman detail.png

The air talisman is an item that allows players to enter the Air altar. At the altar, the player can use the Runecrafting skill to turn rune essence or pure essence into air runes.

Also at the air altar, an air talisman can be combined with a silver tiara to make an air tiara for 25 Runecrafting experience, by using the tiara on the altar while having an air talisman in inventory. This consumes the talisman, but the air tiara can be used the same as an air talisman and can be worn, opening an inventory slot to carry another essence.

Air talismans can be used to create combination runes. The talisman is consumed when used as the 'secondary' talisman to make these runes.

An air talisman is consumed in conjunction with a Water talisman as tertiary items in creating an Ice titan pouch for the Summoning skill. Before ice titans were released, air talismans were relatively cheap to purchase. They then became expensive, often costing thousands of coins. They became cheap again following the release of the reintroduction of free trade.

The player received an air talisman at the end of the old version of the Rune Mysteries quest.

Apprentice Clara in Burthorpe also has a free air talisman in her shop.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
patch 15 March 2010 (Update):
    • Fixed a problem with the air talisman's locate code.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • On the day the Falador Tasks were released, Air talismans would not buy easily in the Grand Exchange and players had to wait for one to buy.
  • Air talismans were required as an easy Falador Task to make an Air tiara. This has since been changed to making a Mind tiara.
  • Before an update, during the Rune Mysteries quest players could use the drop trick to receive multiple air talismans from Duke Horacio. This could only be done if the player had started the quest and had not finished the part where the player showed the air talisman to Wizard Sedridor. This led to Jagex changing the air talisman in the quest to a Talisman, which has no use other than in the quest.
