The elemental talisman is an item that allows players to enter all four of the elemental altars which they must enter if they wish to craft elemental runes. Unlike all other talismans, it cannot be bound into a tiara. The four elemental altars are air, water, fire, and earth.

Uses[edit | edit source]

Although it would seem versatile, this talisman is rarely actually used instead of the standard 4 elemental talismans, most likely because they can be made into their related tiaras while this talisman cannot.

Combination runes[edit | edit source]

It cannot be used as the talisman ingredient required for crafting combination runes.

Locate function[edit | edit source]

Since it is connected to all four of the elemental altars, the locate function may try to find multiple altars that are the same distance away, rendering it completely dysfunctional and causing it to give the message "You cannot tell which direction the Talisman is pulling...". However, if the player is already close to one of the four elemental altars (that is, closer to one altar than the other three) the elemental talisman will begin to function normally, and guide the player to that altar with the usual "The talisman pulls to the North-East" type messages.

Obtaining one[edit | edit source]

Elemental talismans can be obtained as drops from the monsters of the Abyss. Although it is not common, it is fairly easy to obtain from the abyssal leech, which has extremely low hitpoints. The easiest way to obtain this drop is to use the fairy ring network (code ALR) to go to the Abyssal Area. After a while in the abyss, the monsters become tolerant of you, so if you stay in the same location while you're there, you can choose to fight only the leeches.

You may also purchase one from other players, which may be an alternative method instead of killing Abyssal creatures yourself.
