Runes are upgrade components for armor. Each piece of armor can receive a single rune, and using multiple armor pieces with runes of the same kind give cumulative benefits. As with all other upgrade components, a rune may be replaced by another one. Runes may be crafted by armorsmiths, leatherworkers and tailors.

Rune types[edit]

The effects of a rune are dependent on the number of armor pieces the rune is placed in. Thus, if you have a certain kind of rune on four pieces of armor, you get bonuses (1) through (4). Below, all known runes are listed by primary cumulative attribute given with one, three, or five armor pieces with the same kind of rune.

Notes[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • It was originally stated that it would not be possible to salvage runes from armor at all[1], however, during BWE2 each salvage kit had a chance of salvaging upgrade components. It is also possible to salvage an upgrade component directly using a Black Lion Salvage Kit.
