Runes are equipment exclusive to Pandemonium War & The Exile Mountains content that activate bonus effects to Talismans and provide Advanced class skills with bonus Atk., reduced Cooldown Reduction, and increased Utility.


  • All runes have a level requirement of 95 and are untradable.
  • Runes provide special bonuses for all Advanced class skills between Levels 15-80 (Awakenings, certain specialized buffs/actives, Buff Enhancement skills, and passive skills are excluded).
  • There are four grades of runes: Common, Uncommon, Rare and Unique. The grade of runes affects the effectiveness of the bonuses.
    • Ornate (Unique) grade is added as part of The Exile Mountains update.
  • There are five types of runes, each with their own effects/bonuses. Runes of affected skills are color-coded to match their bonuses:
    • Terra Cotta (Purple): Increased Atk.
    • Circle Mage (Green): Reduced Atk + Reduced Skill cooldown
    • The Guardians (Blue): Reduced Skill cooldown
    • Ancient Library (Yellow): Increased Function (usually skill size/range)
    • Second Pact (Red): Increased Atk + Increased Skill cooldown
  • Up to 3 runes can be equipped to a talisman a time, and only 1 rune of the same type/grade of the same skill can be equipped at a time to a talisman.
  • Runes can freely registered/deregistered or added/removed from talismans, even if they are not assigned to the talismans.
  • Runes cannot be adjusted while in dungeon.
