Hello guys and welcome back to another blog about one of the most popular games today- Elden Ring. Today, we are discussing some of the best ways to spend runes in the game. You already know that Elden Ring is a work of art, filled with action, and role-playing, and takes you to the fantasy world of George RR Martin.
The game is full of adventure with a focus on combats and exploration of Lands Between. Adventurous games are the most popular in the gaming community. Also, in Elden Ring, you get to have amazing skillsets, including magical skills and combat skills. Unlike other games out there, Elden Ring’s combat is more polished, expanded, and satisfying. It comes with a lot of customizations to let your creativity flow. You get to upgrade your character and surroundings as per your preferences. Do you want your character to be Kanye West, yeah you can have him?
However, getting your dream character isn’t as easy as it sounds. One thing you will need to let your creativity flow is Runes. Runes are both currency and experience points in Elden Ring. Runes will help you upgrade your character, and also lets you buy other game items like Smithing Stones to level up your weapons. But, the game will never tell you how you can use the Runes or even do they have an option to be used. The process is almost impossible to track.
So, here we are with a number of ways you can spend Runes in Elden Ring.
Best Ways To Spend Runes In Elden Ring
1. Leveling up your character
The most significant advantage of having runes is that you can level up your avatar in the game. Follow the below-mentioned steps to level up your character:
- Fast travel and reach the Site of Grace.
- Rest there for a while.
- Choose the “level up” option.
- Select the stat which you want to be increased for your character.
- You will see a small change in your stat level in exchange for a thousand runes.
Upgrading your character isn’t the only thing you can do with your hard-earned runes.
2. Upgrading Weapons
Another great way to spend Runes in Elden Ring is to upgrade your weapons. There are multiple ways to upgrade your weapons:
- At Smithing Table
Smithing Table can be easily found directly behind the Site of Grace by fast traveling to the Church of Elleh.
- Master Hewg
When you visit the Roundtable Hold, you can see the Table of Lost Grace on your map, that is where you will find the Smithing Master Hewg.
- Master Iji
Very close to Kingsrealm Ruins, Master Ijli can be found near the north-western area of the Liurnia of the Lakes.
3. Purchasing Items
If you are short on runes needed to level up, then we suggest it is best that you purchase items such as bows, arrows, and swords that will aid in you defeating the next boss/enemy you will encounter. Defeating the boss will bring more runes to you. So, it sure is a great way to use runes.
