Dense essence block detail

A dense essence block is a raw material used in the Runecrafting skill to make blood runes and soul runes. A dense essence block can be used on the dark altar (requires 100% favor) found north-west of the dense runestone mines to infest them with dark power, turning them into dark essence blocks. These dark essence blocks can be crushed with a chisel to turn into dark essence fragments. These dark essence fragments can then be used for runecrafting blood and soul runes.

Another use for these blocks (though not recommended) is giving them to Clerris to get house favour. This method of gaining favour only grants 0.1% per 4 blocks donated, versus 1.5% per book or 3% per manuscript donated in the library. However this method does remove the constant running required for the other methods and could be of use to people with lower agility levels.

Players cannot get the Rock golem pet while mining dense essence blocks.

Obtaining dense essence blocksEdit

The only way of obtaining dense essence blocks is to mine them at the Dense runestone mine, located in northern Arceuus. Both pickaxe and chisel are required.

A Mining and Crafting level of at least 38 is required to mine dense essence blocks, granting 8 crafting and 12 mining experience per block mined.

Players will always get one dense essence block every 9 ticks, regardless of the used pickaxe. Having a high mining level is advantageous when mining the essence. The higher their level, the slower it depletes.
