Death runes are rare runes used in tier 3 combat spells known as blast spells. They cannot be purchased from any shop, but can be collected from monster drops, item spawns, or 2x from pickpocketing Heroes at level 80 Thieving.

Another way to collect death runes is to grow kittens into cats, then to sell them to civilians in West Ardougne for 25 death runes each. Only one kitten can be owned at a time, but multiple cats can be traded in a single trip to West Ardougne.

Completion of the Underground Pass quest rewards players with 15 death runes among other items.
