Lunar Magicks Guide

Lunar Magic Altar

Introduction

Lunar Magic is a branch of Magic that can be used once the Lunar Diplomacy Quest is completed. It is members only and when you are on the Lunar Magicks spellbook you cannot use spells from any of the other spellbooks (unless you have a high enough Magic level to use the Spellbook Swap spell). Normal magic abilities can still be used on the Lunar spellbook. Additional Lunar spells can be unlocked with the completion of the Dream Mentor quest and through the Livid Farm minigame.

In order to switch to the Lunar spellbook you need to pray at the Astral altar on Lunar Isle. Praying again will return you to the normal spellbook.

Unlike the other spellbooks, the Lunar spellbook offers very little in the way of combat spells. Instead it focuses on teleportation, assistance spells and spells that aid you and your allies. All Lunar spells require Astral runes which can be crafted with level 40 Runecrafting (after completing Lunar Diplomacy), bought from Baba Yaga on Lunar Isle or from other players.

The Spells

After switching to Lunar Magicks, these spells will be shown in your spell book instead of normal or Ancient spells.

Notes

* No runes are required for the Home Teleport spell, but the spell animation takes some time so it cannot be used to leave combat. However, it is very useful for players who are lost and need to get back to familiar ground. For players in the tutorial mode for the Burthorpe area, this spell will only teleport them to Burthorpe until the tutorial mode is disabled. Refer to the Lodestone section of the Getting Around guide for more information on lodestones.

** These spells only become available after completion of the Dream Mentor quest.

*** These spells are unlocked as rewards from the Livid Farm minigame.

~ These spells only become available after completion of the Ritual of the Mahjarrat quest.

^ Players who have taken time in the Temple Trekking minigame to train Smiddi Ryak to level 99 will find that their Heal Other spell will heal their target approximately 25% more life points than normal.

# The amount of experience gained is the same as the combat spell that is cast.

The Vengeance Other, Heal Other, and Energy Transfer spells may only be used in multi-combat areas.

Teleport Group Spells

When a 'Tele Group' spell is cast, the caster will be teleported and all players that were standing within one square (including the four diagonal squares) of the caster will receive the option to also be teleported to the location. Players who are not accepting aid will not be affected, like normal teleport other spells. Players who have not been to Moonclan Island will not be given a chance to be teleported there with the Tele Group to Moonclan Island spell.

Using Lunar Magicks

While the Lunar spellbook is not the best choice for combat, it is quite useful for training a variety of skills. Its primary uses are Farming, Magic training and Runecrafting, however that is not the full extent of its usefulness.

Farming

The teleports available on the Lunar spellbook are perfect for farming with two teleports direct to a farming allotment (South Falador and North Ardougne) a teleport to Catherby and a teleport to Trollheim. In addition to the teleport spells there are three spells which also assist with farming: Cure Plant, Remote Farming and Fertile Soil. Cure Plant and Fertile Soil mean you do not have to carry plant cures and supercompost on farm runs and Remote Farming allows you to check the status of your crops and cure disease from wherever you are.

The most common way to do a farming run on Lunar magic is:

  • Trollheim teleport (My Arm's patch),
  • Ectophial to the Port Phasmytas patch,
  • South Falador teleport,
  • North Ardougne teleport,
  • Catherby teleport,
  • Bank.

The order is not overly important, although if using Juju potions it is better to start at Trollheim as it is farthest from the nearest teleport. The patch at Catherby is also the closest to a bank so many players choose to end their run there.

Magic Training

Although not immediately obvious, Lunar spells are some of the best means of training Magic in the game. There are three effective ways of training Magic using Lunar spells:

Lunar Hunter Kit

String Jewellery: This is the most popular means of training Magic with Lunar spells, as it requiring less attention as other methods and is fairly cheap and fast. It is a good idea to use a mud battlestaff and unstrung gold amulets to minimise your losses. This method can give you upwards of 120k experience an hour.

Hunter Kit: One of the more expensive and click intensive means of training Magic on Lunar spells, it is nonetheless fast experience and can be easily over 80k or 90k experience an hour.

Plank Make: Casting Plank Make on mahogany logs is a quick but expensive means of training. The experience per hour is similar to String Jewellery.

Dungeoneering

In Daemonheim your spellbook is a mixture of Lunar spells and spells from the normal spellbook. The following Lunar spells are available:

95 Vengeance Group* 4 Astrals

Spells marked with an asterisk (*) have to be unlocked before they can be used in Daemonheim, see the list of spells for more information.

Runecrafting

Lunar Magic is particularly useful for players crafting Astral runes or using the Ourania altar.

Astral Runes: The fastest way of crafting Astral runes is by using the Moonclan teleport to teleport yourself to the bank on Lunar Isle. From there it is a short run south-east to the altar. Once you have crafted your runes, use the Moonclan teleport once again to return to the bank, then rinse and repeat. Sometimes other players who are crafting Astral runes will use the tele group Moonclan spell which can save you a few runes.

Ourania Altar: Players have two options when it comes to using Lunar spells at the Ourania altar and it comes down to which method of banking they prefer. One option is to bank at the Lunar Isle bank, teleport to the entrance to the altar and then teleport back to Lunar Isle to repeat the process.

The second option is to use the bank just inside the entrance to the altar (this costs twenty runes of the same type). Once the runes have been crafted, use the Ourania teleport to take you back to the entrance to bank and start again.
