Profession runes are magic stones crafted by miners, allowing you to have your name published as a craftsman in the "List of the Craftsmen" book, in the corresponding profession workshops. This allows other users to private message you to craft items for them, and to see information on your profession.
In order to have your name published, you must activate (use) the rune. Using the rune a second time clears your name from the list (eg. if you want to be left alone). The rune is deactivated when your session ends so you have to reactivate it each time your character logs on.
