This method involves rapidly crafting air runes with a runes per essence multiplier of x26 through use of Wicked hood teleport tokens. Initial buy costs are low and can be further lowered through use of the factory outfit, modified botanist's mask, botanist amulet, using portable skilling stations with the Brooch of the Gods, and collecting your own materials in advance.
This activity is highly click-intensive and requires items otherwise only available through Treasure Hunter.
- One rune essence is currently valued at 73 coins.
- While one pure essence is 58 coins.
Alternatively, players may use this method at the Fire Altar and retain similar profitability.
This guide does not take into consideration the time and costs for obtaining teleport tokens from Treasure Hunter.
It is possible to achieve more than 132 successful loops per hour with this method. 120 runs per hour will be used as the base for the purposes of this guide. This assumes a 30 second loop. One dose each of extreme runecrafting (4) and powerburst of sorcery (4) will be consumed every 12 and 4 loops, respectively, for a total of 10 and 29 doses used per hour.
A total of 103 pure/rune essence can be carried for the majority of these runs by adding a third banking preset. Alternatively, players can choose to skip the use of powerburst of sorcery to lower initial costs and still retain slightly lower profitability. For the purposes of this guide, 102 essence per trip will be used.
One elder Arcane Apoterrasaur must be placed in each of the large dinosaur pens with farm totems placed to activate their tier 2 perk. This increases your runes per essence multiplier by +2 for each of the four elemental runes.
The player should create the following Bank presets. Note that presets 1 and 2 are necessary for efficiency. However, adding preset 3 is recommended for optimal gains beyond the guide's stated profit.
- Preset 1 should contain all 5 rune pouches, 22 rune essence, and 1 powerburst of sorcery. With the player's BoB also set to carry 20 rune essence
- Preset 2 would replace the powerburst of sorcery with extreme runecrafting.
- Preset 3 (optional) would replace the potion slot with a 23rd rune essence. This preset should be taken into consideration between cooldowns.
A dedicated action bar should also be setup in advance. When using banking presets and teleporting to and from your destination. The biggest obstacle becomes the highly intensive loading of pouches in rapid succession. Making your hotkey setup crucial. A properly setup action bar will include hotkeys for:
- Loading Torso/Pouches quickly/efficiently
- Teleporting to and from the Air Altar
- Renewing potions' effects
While not required for this method, Double Surge is an excellent investment when a lack of wicked hood teleport tokens is present. Players can still achieve acceptable profits (albeit substantially reduced) with Double Surge and powerburst of sorcery. This, again, is a high-intensity method.
Players should be equipped with a summoned abyssal titan, infinity ethereal outfit, active pouch protector, and optionally an explorer's ring 2, 3, 4 . Lastly, ensure your wicked hood is charged with a minimum of 120 teleports.
- Open the bank chest and load one of your dedicated presets.
- Use hotkeys to fill torso, small, and medium rune pouches.
- Repeat steps 1 & 2 to fill large and giant pouches.
- Repeat steps 1 & 2 to fill massive pouch.
- Open the bank chest and load Preset 1.
- Use hotkeys to teleport to the Air Altar via the wicked hood.
- Enter the Air Altar.
- Consume one dose of the powerburst of sorcery and quickly click on the Altar to craft runes.
- Use hotkeys to cast War's Retreat Teleport and return to the bank chest.
For optimal gains, use Preset 3 between cooldowns. Alternating between presets at Step 5 as needed. (essentially every 4 and 12 loops)
A single loop on average yields 1392.3 air runes or 84,930.3 coins. This is further increased to 2784.6 air runes or 169,860.6 coins per loop with an active powerburst of sorcery.
