Storm Legion: A Grandmaster Runecrafting Guide

Rift posted by mistical

Below are all the new runecrafting materials and how they are acquired from breaking down gear. You will also find that we have listed every Runecrafting recipe with every single detail needed for them. Keep in mind that some of these ingredients might change as Storm Legion is fine tuned.

This guide will be further updated additional information and tips such as acquiring a large amount of runes by breaking down certain easy items to make with Outfitter as another profession.

You must be at least level 290 in Runecrafting to break down Level 50 to 60 items.

Runecrafting is one of the hardest crafts to level up in Storm Legion, and hopefully Trion will address the issues with it soon. You will find it somewhat hard especially compared to other professions and expensive to level up. There are a few ways to approach leveling it up to save you some platinum.

In my opinion, the cheapest and best way to level up to 375 and/or acquire a lot of materials afterwards is to make Dense Leather Belts, these require 4 Dense Leather, 2 Vitreous Oil and 2 Strong Thread. The Vitreous Oil and Strong Thread are bought from the vendor and cost 20 gold per each one, this will be quiet expensive but with the current price for Runecrafting Materials on each shards auction houses, it is actually cheaper in the long run.

Dense Hide is easy to acquire if you are a butcher; as it has always fit well with Outfitter and Runecrafting and since you can easily farm it at lower level mobs and it is not hard to acquire as say Truehide.

If you use the following advice above, the Runecrafting dailies might just be worth it for you otherwise, at this current time as of 2.0 Hotfix #2, I do not think it is.

Another approach to leveling to 375, would be to runebreak everything you do not need while leveling from 50 to 60. This will not fully level you to 375, even if you have a partner to level up with as well and them sending you bind on equip items too. However, if you are with 2 or more people, and they all send you them while leveling, you will likely hit 375 faster.
