Players can combine the same rune up to three times by using a rune on another rune. Only runes with the same core gem dust can be combined. Combined runes give higher bonuses but diminish the duration a little. Players can also combine one type of rune to another different type of rune of the same power and gem dust to combine the bonuses. This also diminishes its duration. The shortest duration for a rune's effects is 12 minutes, the longest duration is 24 minutes.

Example Usage

A PC crafts 3 Shadow Sapphire Runes, 3 Tidal Sapphire Runes, 3 Forestal Sapphire Runes and 3 Al'noth Sapphire Runes. The player uses Shadow Sapphire Rune I on another Shadow Sapphire Rune I to get a Shadow Sapphire Rune II. The PC then uses another Shadow Sapphire Rune I on the Shadow Sapphire Rune II to get a Shadow Sapphire Rune III. Repeat for all types.

The PC then uses Shadow Sapphire Rune III on Tidal Sapphire Rune III to get a Shadow Tidal Sapphire Rune III then does the same for the Forestal and Al'noth to get a Shadow Tidal Forestal Al'noth Sapphire Rune III. The PC then uses that rune before a big battle and it grants them a 12 minute bonus of +6 to Saves vs Spells, +6 to Spellcraft Skill, 15% Damage Immunity to Magical Damage and +3 to INT, CHA and WIS.
