Details
Interacting with the Rune Goldberg Machine found on the eastern side of the Runecrafting Guild opens up an interface in which various runes may be input into three slots. A coloured face indicates how optimal each rune is (in that slot), with a green smiley being most optimal and a red frown being least optimal. The combination of runes required to produce the full 100 vis wax output changes daily and varies slightly between players. The runes follow these trends:
  • The first rune will be the same for all players.
  • The second rune varies between three runes for all players.
  • The third rune is completely random and depends on trial-and-error to find.
    • Alternatively, with level 99 Runecrafting, the skillcape perk divulges the third rune.


The trial-and-error aspect of the machine also takes a toll on the overall profit, by increasing the number of runes needed slightly with each unsuccessful attempt. As such, to mitigate loss, players may wish to join a dedicated Friends Chat which may provide information on the first two rune slots.

Note:

  • The runes can be input directly from the bank without needing to take them to the machine.
  • Depending on market value, certain runes (usually combination runes) may cause a loss of profit. To prevent this, players are recommended to substitute that slot with a less optimal rune that yields a higher net profit.
  • These calculators can help determine your exact profit from certain rune combinations. The first calculates price of the inputs and the minimum wax required to profit. The second adjusts for tries taken.
