Elden Ring: YouTubers find rune farming exploits
When you first start ancient ring, you don’t have much armor – at least for some classes. To put it bluntly, you are weak in a harsh world. The way players level up and increase stats is, of course, collecting runes. Runes are part experience points and part currency, and to get stronger you need to collect a lot of them.
Rune collecting is something that will happen throughout the game, even if you don’t really try. Certain actions and enemies – such as clearing the guards in the ruins at the gate – will give a bunch of runes. But if you want to get a lot of runes very quickly, you will have to farm. Runic economy.
Naturally, YouTube is already full of some exploits and creative rune farming techniques. YouTuber TagBackTV created a video about a method that can earn 585,600 runes an hour, he said.
He describes the method in the video, but essentially there is a specific area where the player can activate the boulder. The boulder will roll off the edge of the nearest cliff and bring thousands of runes to the players. Then you return to the place of grace and do it again. And again, and again, and again. And no fight!
Arekkz Gaming has another video for the early ancient ring Runic farm. It does require some fighting though, but it’s a relatively easy process to get a lot of runes in a short amount of time. Each kill with this method gives 1000 runes.
Polygon also has a guide to the ancient ring’s runic economy. Our guide mainly focuses on Limgrave West, the starting point for the ancient rings.
If you’re looking for something that looks less like an exploit and more like an optimized route straight from ancient ring Gates Boomstick Gaming created a video with instructions on the 15-minute road to victory.
Runes! Runes are everywhere!
