Rune Arc is a Consumable Item in Elden Ring. Rune Arc is a special consumable that activates the effects of your equipped Great Rune. If you don't use a Rune Arc, your rune is dormant and its effects aren't applied to your character. Rune Arc boost is lost upon death. They cannot be crafted, but they can be farmed. They can only be used offline or by the host of fingers in multiplayer.

 


A shard of the shattered Elden Ring.

Grants the blessing of an equipped Great Rune upon use.

Even if no Great Rune is equipped,
it will slightly increase maximum HP upon use.

The lower arc of the Elden Ring is held to be the basin in which its blessings pool.
Perhaps this shard originates from that very arc.

Where to Farm Rune Arc in Elden Ring

Giant Rats have a small chance to drop Rune Arcs

Earthbore Cave has 7 small Giant Rats and 1 large Giant Rat.  It takes just over a minute to kill them all and reset at the Grace.

The Rampart Gaol in Castle Morne has 4 Giant Rats that can be farmed and reset in just under 30 seconds.

Either way you should average a couple Rune Arcs per hour even with low discovery.

      Can anyone confirm that farming for Rune Arcs (on rats) doesn't work anymore? All they ever drop are Golden Runes (1) and Golden Runes (3).

      • Anonymous

        For a RL70 WL12 noob that just went ahead and explored the game offline it seems pretty unrealistic to hop into multiplayer now and do invasions, right?
        My build is probably far from being min-maxed for this level, even with roughly following a build guide, but most equipment I just collect as I find it, except for that Scarseal early on. Ngl, with just rats dropping it at ultra-low chances, this makes Great Runes nigh useless without an ample supply of arcs, as you're always torn between learning a boss' moveset and "accidently" managing to overcome it before trying it "seriously" with an arc activated. Just killed Radahn and at no point I felt confident enough to fire an arc, but still managed to down him anyway after 3 tries when I mostly saw all he's throwing at me and my bois.

        • You farm the rune arcs to get bonus for a hard boss, I pop them for fun sound and particle effects cuz I have tons of them via coop/invasions, we're not the same

            I advise new and repeat players to gather as many of these as possible before leaving limgrave and liurnia. You can be summoned pretty quickly in limgrave and most dungeons are fairly short and easy.

            From caelid onwards it gets very tedious trying to get rune arcs as you will wait 10 mins to be summoned and the dungeons get longer and more annoying and there is a fair chance you will be summoned somewhere with no boss or a long trek to the boss and the host will die or you will get a connection error just as you are about to beat the boss. Honestly not a fan of this whole system.

              I advise people who hate these to re-evaluate a little. You pick up a ton of these just from playing through the game, even offline. Just pop one when you're in a tough area or on a hard boss. Best case scenario, you make it through and still get to keep your power boost for a while longer! You'll have an easier time surviving with that extra bit of juice, which means more value out of your rune arc. And even if you die, let's be honest, you have 20 more lying around. Pop the rest of them, too. If you run out you'll just go back to not using your great rune like normal anyway. Just give them a chance!

                There's also a rune arc in Liturgical Town on one of the balconies near its site of grace, to the east of the site of grace, you can jump to on torrent.

                  Is this concept completely worthless for anyone else? In an effort to get good at the game, I finished it multiple times. Then, I got my speedruns to under 3 hours. Now, I'm in the middle of my first RL1 run. And the idea of farming rune arcs seems like the absolute worst thing I could possibly do. With how often the game is designed to kill you, to have (very) finite resources tied to that death... seems ridiculous. One man's opinion.

                    Remember the page didn't mention this but. RUNE ARCS DO WORK IN MULTIPLAYER but only for the host not any phantoms.

                      They should simply make the effects last for up to 5 deaths instead of just one. Instead of losing the effects immediately, they get progressively weaker after each death, then disappear on the 5th.

                        "small giant rat" and "large giant rat". isn't that kinda redundant? why not just say "rat" and then "giant rat"?

                            Starting to actually use these turned me from an offline player to an online one.
                            I started using the runes as a buff to when I'm clearing the land/a path to a boss. Then if I die to a boss, I'll be reluctant repopping one, since I feel like I need to practice and then I often end up downing the boss without one, unless I get really confident and just need that last edge.

                            But I really like how it opened me up to being a coop player, since that's a nice way to farm them, so I don't feel bad using them, which enriches my game a ton! I can recommend! I never get invaded anyway, for some reason - maybe it's because I have the Small Golden Effigy on all the time?

                              Anyone else never use these things? On my first play through when I was streaming discord dying to malenia my friend ask me why I don’t use rune arch’s and I didn’t understand what they were for until that point and had 40-50 of them. In 600 hours I’ve popped less than 10 of these it’s just a chore to go up those towers I don’t bother I straight up don’t fw no rune arch’s

                              • I love how I waste half of these because I end up falling to my death for whatever dumb, random reason the game decides to make me fall. Truly, gravity is the greatest foe of them all.

                                  Most reliable source is from invasions and co-op, but i can't even use great runes in multiplayer apart from Mohg's which tbf is pretty good since every other player runs bleed in some capacity.

                                    To anyone thinking about farming these off the rats near the "Beside the Rampart Gaol" grace in Castle Morne. These were my results getting just 7 of them with 274 item discovery. 99 Arcane and a Silver Scarab Talisman.

                                    17th run
                                    8th run
                                    1st run
                                    6th run
                                    7th run
                                    24th run
                                    50th run

                                    Yes, you read that right. 50 runs to get a single Rune Arc. x4 rats each run, that's 200 rats before I got even one. Needless to say I gave up after that.

                                      I don't use runes. Every Time I need to use some rare consumable to be able to defeat boss, I am stressed and I F* it up and waste that rare resource.

                                        Seems like most people in this comment section are ingrained offline players who prefer farming enemies to get one Rune Arc per hour instead of getting fun in co-op. Actual Rune Arc system is good as it is and doesn't need any "fixes" that you offer. Rune Arcs give you buffs more significant that even legendary talismans, therefore, you should use them with care and only when absolutely necessary. If you have beaten the game few times already, on a new playthrough you will most likely end with dozens of unused Rune Arcs in your inventory, because now you're good enough not to die to every boss. Dislike this post as much as you want, won't change the fact that some ER players just whine about everything.

                                          Strong belief that these should have had a slight chance to drop from all enemies - not just giant rats that are a chore to farm in one spot for hours of wasted gameplay only to get a tiny handful, when they could instead be added to the allure of exploring by allowing them to be able to drop from anyone/anything/anywhere. Even if the drop rate was tiny I think it still would have been a better system.

                                                Genuinely useful on a lvl 1 run. With Godricks great rune you can free up talisman slots for more flexibility. A little higher drop rate would help too.

                                                        Gonna be rough when online is dead unless they tweak drop rates.

                                                          What if Rune Arcs dropped way more often, but you could only hold one at a time (including your stash), and they would only drop while you aren't under the effects of a Great Rune? That way, you might as well use it while you have it, because it becomes impossible to hoard.

Bloodborne showed you dont need boss souls anymore, with carryl runes in that and talismans in this one along with the AoWs.

                                                              I look at these as a bone to throw to the player as they beat story bosses. Beats doing mutiple NGs just to create weapons youll never use.

                                                                • Hot Take: This system is actually worse than Embers due to not being as convenient, you don't get a Rune Arc activation on Boss kills, which would have been very useful considering just how many bosses there are. On this topic, what this system and the Great Runes really needed are minor passive benefits that encourage you to go out and collect them all, something like Godrick increasing the power of fully charged heavy attacks by 5%, Radahn increasing the power of jumping attacks by 5%, Mohg increase your attack power by 5% on blood loss, Malenia increasing your attack power by 5% on poisoning, Morgott increasing general damage by ~2%, Rykard increasing the power of Ashes of War by 5%, and Unborn could have possibly provided 1 FP every 5 seconds. Also, bring back a version of the "Humanity Counter" from DS1 but for Rune Arcs that very slightly increases your item discovery and maximum health for every Rune Arc you use up to a cap of 20 or something, and you can pick them back up if you die, like with Runes.

                                                                  • Anonymous

I'm running arcane build, which give drop rate, so it's not too much of a bother to farm sometimes. If you use all the time, you can lower all stat requirements of Equipment, by 5 points, and invest them in primary stats instead - with all this, your power and survivability will go up anyway.

DS3 encouraged being embered all the time by making NPC invades only happen when you are. Plus embers where quite plentiful iirc.

Make the cost scale to level so it always stays an investment. Turn runes into strength, right? ;)
                                                                        Encouraging to farm rats for such an item is both hilarious and absolutely brazen by From. Online has to be optional without drawbacks imo. Make players use online functions by making them fun, not by gating items behind them, From.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                - Do co-op, its easy runes and arcs.
                                                                                - just do multiplayer, seriously its that easy you people really are making a problem out of nothing.

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

Not only it's a lazy "ember" system but dumb as well. It's fair to say that having Great Runes active 100% would be a bit OP especially on lower levels. Ok, as I said, fair enough. Here's come the BUT.

                                                                                      If the intent was to provide a little boost when you need it, typically in a boss fight, why would you need to go through the pain of accessing the change rune menu through a Grace site? Just enable the change from the character equip menu. Is this so hard? But to take it further, why change runes and not just let the player choose which buff to get when use an Arc depending on which you have already unlocked? Is this so hard of a concept? Lastly, online might be a good way to farm Arcs but online will someday be shutdown. Why limit the player like this? Make the farming easier and/or crafted.

                                                                                      I don't think these unreasonable requests/points.

                                                                                      • I swear every time I use a Rune Arc for a boss attempt I do way worse. I don’t know if I’m thinking about not wasting it or what but it’s an absolute bloodbath.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          - Backup your save.
                                                                                          - Restore your save if ran out of rune arcs before you beat the boss.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

Farming these just isn't worth it in the long run because I'm going to die from something dumb and then I've basically wasted 30 mins to an hour of smacking rats. And PvP basically just gives you an unlimited supply? That's stupid. Not everyone wants to play PvP, making it more viable to farm would make a lot more sense.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                I actually only used one single rune arc the entire game. Went in to elden beast/radagon at 55 vigor, level 156, and kept dying when the beast was at like 20% health. It must have given me the slight edge (plus I changed to godskin weapons which really melted them). The next day when I restarted the game, I noticed my stats were weird, here the rune arc was still active. So I'd say rune arcs are important, and are great to have, but don't let their absence stop you. You can kill all prior bosses without them.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

They shouldn't be a free health buff like in DS3, where I spend 95% of each playthrough embered since they're so common. But on the other hand, I never use rune arcs because it's an open world game and I'm exponentially more likely to randomly die from poor terrain, glitches or just torrent controlling like a speedboat in a pool of tar

                                                                                                    • So I did a bit of testing and I think I probably found the best ways to grind rune arcs offline and online.
                                                                                                      OFFLINE: its possible to get your discovery stat all the way to 324. first get your arcane stat to 99. with that you have 199 discovery. Btw You can use godricks great rune and Marikas soreseal for +10 arcane. +8 arcane from silver tear mask by beating the mimic tear in nokron. also using the Silver-pickled fowl foot +50 discovery and lastly the silver scarab talisman +75 discovery.
                                                                                                      METHOD: if you are farming rune arcs offline I honestly think the best possible farming method is to first go to the Beside the rampart Gaol site of grace in castle morne and kill the 4 rats in the small room and run back to the Grace repeatedly. I would recommend using the sacred relic sword. The dragon breath incantations work as a good alternative and almost kill as fast. Since we have a discovery stat of 324 it's basically gonna be a 3.24% chance of a rat dropping a rune arc or 1.62% chance cus of the base drop rates being 0.5-1% I believe. Basically you kinda have gacha rate levels of dropping at that point. Honestly not super terrible but I would only recommend using this method if you have a lot of time on your hands. For me I averaged about 1 rune arc every 10-15 minutes at least. After 2 and a half hours I got 20 rune arcs.
                                                                                                      ONLINE: I think probably the best method would be to ask a friend to make a new save get killed by the grafted scion. go to the effigy martyr next to the tree sentinel set a multiplayer password to bypass level restriction and ****. The person who is getting rune arcs gets summoned to kill the tree sentinel and repeat that over and over again. Obviously funner methods exist like killing margit with randoms at lvl 20 and invading. Which I did on other saves But coop is dead for me now on xbox sadly.
                                                                                                      God why does from software have to make it so hard to get rune arcs in this game. I play on xbox and it's literally impossible to get rune arcs online cus no one plays co-op anymore. Also WHY cant u trade these anyways. It's not gonna break the game. How come fromsoft didn't see that further into this games lifecycle that once the player retention goes down and less ppl start playing elden ring at some point. All of the players in the future will have to resort to the stupid only grinding offline for a long time method. And that's another thing that a few of the “NOoOoOo iF u wANt rUNe aRCs JUSt pLaY pVP!” people don't understand. Like come on bro

                                                                                                                  Couldn't that be just a chance drop from a rat?

                                                                                                                  • Anonymous

Absolutely stupid that there is no way to reliably get these without engaging in multiplayer. Not to mention that summoning for bosses is pretty much a dead activity until you hit the later game/SL 120/150.

                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

This item should be avaiable for ANYONE who wants to stay clear from an online mode which doesn't fit an offline openworld. Farming rats for hours just to obtain 2 rune arcs is stupid af. I hope a future dlc will make them as farmable as humanities in the abyss area from DK1.

Elden Ring confirmed for violating laws of conservation.

                                                                                                                        • Anonymous

They should change how they work. Once activated, you're stuck with it until you want to swap it out for another one. Reached the endgame, and I have like 30 rune arcs, but I died at least 100 times, most beacuse of gravity and such. If you don't know how to implement a functionality, just don't do it. Effigies in DK2 were similar, but the game came plenty of, and could be farmed from multiple enemies. Humanities in DK1 were a joke after you reached the dlc area. I bet my ass they're going to add a paid dlc were you'll have thousands of them by the end of it.

Lmao, how am I supposed to use them if I don't have PS+? First Varre quest, then this. What is the ****ing problem with offline playerbase?
