Where to find Enshrouded Runes

There are several ways to get Runes in Enshrouded, but we'll begin with the easiest one. Runes are found in chests and containers scattered throughout the game world, including buildings, dungeons, and other locations. While opening chests presents an opportunity to obtain Runes, it is not the most reliable method for accumulating them.

To get your hands on a steady supply of Runes in Enshrouded, you'll need to fight, a lot. There are lots of enemies scattered across Embervale, and you can engage in combat with them to get Runes as drops. Those, particularly within the Shroud, have more of a chance to yield Runes on defeat.

You'll need to be careful as you explore these areas, but it will be worth it when you get your Runes. Here's a tip: challenge the enemies wielding weapons embedded in their bodies.

You can optimise your Rune collection by dismantling unused equipment. As you progress and acquire better armour and weapons, make sure to dismantle the gear you no longer need to salvage Runes. The higher the tier of the item, the greater the number of Runes you can extract from the dismantling process.

How to use Runes in Enshrouded

Runes are important if you want to become more powerful in Enshrouded. You'll be able to rescue NPCs scattered throughout the world, starting with the Blacksmith, with Runes. Once you discover the Blacksmith's location and awaken him, you can return to your base and summon him using the Summoning Staff.

You can use Runes to enhance your weapons by interacting with these rescued NPCs. Once you bring them to your base, you can access their crafting menu, which includes options for enhancing weapons. Select a weapon from the menu to view the Rune costs required to upgrade it to the next level.

Enhancing weapons increases their damage output, making them more effective against your enemies. Depending on your playstyle, pick out the weapons you need to upgrade; however, it's best to have a balanced arsenal of melee and ranged weapons to adapt to various combat scenarios.
