|Wizards' Tower||←||Water Altar||→||Al-Kharid|
As with most other runecrafting altars, it can be accessed via the Abyss. Players can also enter its ruins by using a water talisman. Players can also simply click on the ruins while wearing an water tiara. The closest bank from the water altar is in the Lumbridge Castle.
It is possible to make mist runes, mud runes, and steam runes while at this altar, but at a 50% success rate. This will result in fewer runes than normal being made. To make a combination rune, the player needs one set of elemental runes, a stack of pure essence, and 2 talismans.
Note that you need to use the opposing rune on the altar to craft combination runes. Simply clicking on the altar would just result in regular elemental runes.
Magic Imbue negates the need of a talisman.
If the player equips a binding necklace, the success rate will increase to 100%. The necklace has a total of 15 uses before breaking. A charge is used each time a batch of combination runes is crafted, instead of each time the altar is entered or for each rune crafted.
