Basically, yes. Different wands and staffs give different bonuses to "magic accuracy", with the result that you have a higher chance of causing damage, thus increasing average damage-per-second. This has nothing to do with saving runes. However, a staff of air will use no air runes for spells that require them; similarly, a staff of fire, water, or earth will save you the corresponding runes. Since the air spells only use air runes, you can cast them for free if you wield a staff of air. A staff of light, on the other hand, gives you a 1/8 chance to save ANY type of rune, so on average, it will save you 1/8 of the total cost.

Please note that the basic combat spells - that is, most combat spells in the standard spellbook - are now fairly cheap - especially if compared to the time before the Evolution of Combat upgrade - since they use only elemental runes.

How do you air run on RuneScape?

Log on to RuneScape in world 16. To do air running, you need to have: -lots of unnoted regular essence, but bring as much as you can carry. -an air tiara or air talisman After getting these items, go south of the city of Falador. There should be a big trail of people there. Go into the air altar by clicking on the mysterious ruins if you have an air tiara or by using your air talisman on the mysterious ruins. When you are inside, require assistance from anyone saying things like, "7x" or "9x". When it says that you have received assistance from the player, craft your runes by clicking on the air altar and then say something like, "Thank you" to notify that you are done crafting your runes. Go out of the place and go into the city and go to the bank and deposit your air runes and then withdraw essence. Repeat this over and over until you run out of essence. When you are done, you will have a lot of air runes. You could either keep these or sell them on the Grand Exchange for money. Runescape is for people with no pubic hairs

How much does getting magic from level 60 to 99 in runescape cost?

That obviously depends how you do it. There is a very basic attack spell that you can do for free, but it will be fairly slow. In the Fist of Guthix minigame you get some sort of generic runes, which you can use to attack your opponent for free, but that is also slow. As you use more advanced spells, using mind runes, chaos runes, death runes and the members-only blood runes, it gets progressively more expensive - but also faster - to use attack spells. Other options include superheating, and high alchemy. I believe in some cases you can do superheating (making bars) with a profit, too.
