You can gain double experience for one hour by using a Dragonkin lamp.
These are untradeable but obtainable by voting and by completing daily tasks.
Well of Experience
You can also obtain a further 30% increase in experienced gained by filling the Well of Experience. The well is located on Entrana which is on page 3 of the City Teleports. It costs 7.5m to fill it but mulitple people can contribute to cover this cost.
You can purchase the Runecrafter Robes from the Zamorakian Runecrafter at the Runecrafting Teleport with energy fragments which are obtained whilst crafting runes.
The whole set costs 3250 energy fragments and provides a 50% experience boost.
Please note, there is no experience boost from wearing individual items. The boost only applies when the whole set is worn.
Rift Guardian Pet
You have a 1/2500 chance of receiving the Rift Guardian Pet whilst training Runecrafting.
If used whilst training, it provides a 50% experience boost.
This stacks with the bonus gained from wearing the full Runecrafting Robe set.
The Runecrafting training teleport is located on Page 1 of the Skilling Teleports.
Using the teleport will take you to the Zamorakian Runecrafter, just north of Edgeville.
Selecting Teleport will teleport you to the pure essence mine.
Selecting Talisman Shop will open a shop where you can purchase Talismans. These are required for accessing the various rune altars.
Selecting Reward Shop will open a shop where you can spend energy fragments which are obtained when you craft runes.
The Rewards Shop
I would recommend buying the Pouches first as when you've got all three you can craft three inventories of pure essence on each trip, saving you a lot of time.
Please watch the video below, created by Rob to see the best inventory set up for Runecrafting.
Rob also demonstrates the mechanics of Runecrafting on Pre-Scape by crafting runes at the Blood altar.
Please note that Runecrafting works in the exact same way at each of the altars.
Fast Energy Fragments
To maximise the amount of energy fragments you gain per trip, drop all but one rune essence before you click craft on the altar. Then pick up one essence and craft one at a time. Repeat this until you have used up all of the essence. The fastest way to drop the essence is with the shift+click drop method.
Once you've obtained all of the pouches you don't need to do this method anymore. You can simply fill the pouches and take an inventory of food or other items to fill up space. Make sure you have one inventory slot free so that you can simply withdraw essence from the pouch one at a time, without having to drop it.
The amount of energy fragments you get when you craft runes is random so in theory you could get the same amount of fragments for one essence as you could for say 27. This means you'll get your fragments quicker, and therefore closer to that 50% experience boost from the Runecrafting robes!

You can obtain pure essence by mining it at the pure essence mine. You can get here by selecting 'Teleport' at the Zamorakian Runecrafter at the Runecrafting Teleport. Please note that there are banks here so you don't have to teleport out and go back.
You can also obtain pure essence from bossing.
Chaos Fanatic - 500 Pure essence (1/30 chance) Corporeal Beast - 2500 Pure essence (1/5 chance)
Glod - 2500 Pure essence (1/5 chance)
Skotizo - 2500 Pure essence (1/5 chance)
Please note that the below experience rates are assuming you're using the inventory set up in the video above, which equates to 22 pure essence per inventory.
Beginner Runecrafter - Runecraft any elemental rune
Runes of Nature - Runecraft 500 Nature Runes
Bloodcrafter - Runecraft 6,000 Blood Runes
