The Water Altar is a Runecrafting altar where players can craft water runes. The altar is located in the Lumbridge Swamp, and the nearest bank is in Lumbridge or Draynor , alternatively you can bank at Daemonheim and take the ferry back.
Like all Runecrafting altars, the outside appears as a ruin with stones spread around a stone circle. To enter the Altar, you must bring a talisman, a water talisman staff or a tiara. If a player brings a water talisman, then they must use it on the altar, whereas players with a water tiara can just click on the stone circle.
The inside of the altar is very nature-related. The altar is on an island with daisies. Smaller islands surround the altar with waterlilies around them. TheZealotmusic track is unlocked when a player goes here. When looking eastwards, the island appears to look like a head.
It is possible to make mist runes, mud runes and steam runes while at this altar. Like all combination runes, these runes have a 50% success rate. Equipping a binding necklace increases the success rate when binding combination runes to 100%. It has a total of 15 uses before it breaks. A charge is used each time a rune is created, not each time the altar is entered.
Note: Each combination rune crafted uses up a talisman and you will NOT get it back. For example, crafting mist runes would consume 1 air talisman PER craft.
