The fire rune is one of the four basic elemental runes. Fire runes can be created from Rune essence or Pure essence through the Runecrafting skill, procured from drops by killing monsters, bought from other players, picked up from spawns on the ground, or can sometimes be found inside barrels.

Prices[edit | edit source]
Fire runes often enter the top 3 for most traded items every week in the Grand Exchange. 8.5 billion fire runes were traded in the 180 days leading up to 11 December 2009, and 12.9 billion in the 180 days leading up to 10 August 2010. This averages out to 829 per second, peaking on busy days at over 1650 per second. By 25 August 2010 13.1 billion had been traded in 180 days, which is 842 per second. After a brief dip, this rose again to 13.7 billion over 180 days up until 9 December 2010, 880 per second. It reached its peak in late June 2011, when 2.8 billion fire runes were traded in a mere 7 days, or over 4600 per second.
They are currently sold for 127 coins each on the Grand Exchange, or for 17 coins in stores when there are no fire runes in the player stock.
For a long time, fire runes had a price floor of 9 coins each in the Grand Exchange. Fire runes reached this price floor, and for over a year, they were very difficult to sell in the Grand Exchange, and would buy instantly. However, in September 2009, Jagex changed the price floor from 9 coins each to 5 coins each. Fire runes were then easily both bought and sold on the Grand Exchange.
Following the release of the Polypore staff in 2011, the price of fire runes rose due to the popularity of the staff and the fact that it is charged using 15,000 fire runes, using five per cast. This increased the price dramatically and caused some turbulence on the market. The Evolution of Combat occurred at the end of 2012; it reduces the need of using runes (since abilities do not cost runes), but also changed Blood spells to use fire runes (and always heal when cast as an autoattack and only a small chance with an ability), and made the tier of magic weapon cap the damage of spells and abilities, meaning it became very ineffective to use cheap fire rune-saving staves (e.g. mystic fire staff) to cast higher level (Fire Blast and up) spells.
Spells[edit | edit source]
Fire runes are used in a large number of spells, as listed below.
When casting a spell requiring fire runes, the fire rune requirement may be eliminated by wielding a staff that gives infinite fire runes, such as a staff of fire, fire battlestaff, lava battlestaff, mystic fire staff, mystic steam staff, mystic lava staff or mystical staff (discontinued). Staves of fire can be bought from Zaff's Superior Spellcasting shop in Varrock.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Jack used a fire and an air rune to make fire in the First Age.
- The fire rune is one of the most traded items on the Grand Exchange. This is likely because they were dropped in large quantities by a variety of monsters and are commonly used by players training magic.
- As of 1 October 2022, 13,159,169,951 fire runes were owned by active players.
