The profit rate assumes 60 trips per hour (60 second trips from water altar, minus some time to renew summoning points at an altar). Your actual profit rate may be higher or lower depending on your speed.
Crafting mist runes may be incredibly profitable. Their price, however, is fairly unstable and profit rates can change quickly and drastically.

As of the Shattered Worlds update, it may be most efficient to use the bank there, since the bank is just several steps away from the Water Altar. To begin, start at the bank in the Shattered Worlds lobby, fill your pouches, familiar, and Infinity outfit if you have those. Players can add the pouches to their action bar to help maximise efficiency. Pouches and the Infinity set can also be filled while the bank is open using the right-click option on each pouch and right-clicking the torso of the Infinity outfit. A preset can be used to quickly fill your familiar and remaining inventory space. Note that having full pouches in a preset will not automatically refill them when reloading that preset. Run north-west to the Water altar and enter. Once inside, cast Magic Imbue, and craft your mist runes. All of the essences stored in the pouches, the familiar's inventory, and the essence stored in the Infinity torso will be extracted, so you do not need to empty them. You may then exit the altar, and run back to the bank within the Shattered Worlds lobby. Alternatively, quick access to just north of the Water Altar is possible with Dave's spellbook, which can be acquired after completing Evil Dave's Big Day Out, and using 'Chipped' Lumbridge teleport tablets.
It is also possible to use greater runic staff and charge it with Magic Imbue to store one more pure essence, thus crafting one more mist rune per trip. Alternatively, the astral runes required for magic imbue can be stored in a large rune pouch and then equipped. In addition, Massive pouches can be used to hold an additional 17 essences per trip.
If you have Teleport Tokens for your wicked hood, you can teleport to the Water altar with your wicked hood. You will have a limited but generous number of these per day which can also increase output and profit if utilised.
