Runner Lavas

Players can boost their hourly experience rates by making use of essence runners. This is the fastest way to train runecrafting. But, one of the most expensive training methods in OSRS.

A typical runner costs between 7 and 8 million per hour. With 4 runners players can expect to gain around 240,000 runecrafting experience per hour. With 3 runners expect around 180,000 xp per hour.
