How To Use Golden Runes In Elden Ring?
The Golden Runes are a consumable item that, when used, grants the user instant access to a large sum of Rune currency. If you have runes stored in an item rather than on your person from killing enemies, you will keep them even if you die; they won’t be added to your rune total until you use the item. They are most useful for “banking” runes until you need them for an upcoming level-up or to buy a specific item.
The runes you get depend on which tier of Golden Rune you have:
- Golden Rune 1 – 200 Runes
- Golden Rune 2 – 400 Runes
- Golden Rune 3 – 800 Runes
- Golden Rune 4 – 1,200 Runes
- Golden Rune 5 – 1,600 Runes
- Golden Rune 6 – 2,000 Runes
- Golden Rune 7 – 2,500 Runes
- Golden Rune 8 – 3,000 Runes
- Golden Rune 9 – 3,800 Runes
- Golden Rune 10 – 5,000 Runes
- Golden Rune 11 – 6,250 Runes
- Golden Rune 12 – 7,500 Runes
- Golden Rune 13 – 10,000 Runes
When to use Golden Runes?
When you need to gain experience quickly or buy something from a merchant, Golden Runes are your best bet. If you have any Golden Runes in your inventory, you must open one and click “use” to use it and receive the Runes. If you prefer, you can simply sell them to a shopkeeper for the same amount of Runes.
It is unnecessary to risk dying and losing the Golden Runes if you consume them immediately before using them. The items in your inventory marked with a Golden Rune will remain there even if you die.
That’s the deal with Elden Ring’s Golden Runes.
