Rune swords

Rune swords are created when a blacksmith brands a series of three rune stones onto a silver sword. Steel swords can not be branded, they must be reforged, although the actual process for the upgrades within the confines of the game is very similar.

Branding runes onto a basic silver sword enhances the basic qualities of the sword providing a number of different options which vary with the selection of the runes.

Notes Edit

  • As of the Enhanced Edition, it is not possible to collect rune swords (even after reforging your first rune sword), a newly forged rune sword replaces the older one. This has been tested with the Murky Waters blacksmith and the Order blacksmith in Chapter V.
  • Only one set of runes can be applied to a silver sword at any given time and the resulting effects do not stack.
  • When a silver sword is branded, the resulting rune sword always uses the default silver sword model, regardless of the original appearance of the weapon. It is thus impossible to forge a rune sword that appears as the Moonblade or Aerondight models.
  • As of the Enhanced Edition, when a silver sword is branded, the resulting rune sword's stats replace the base sword's stats, regardless of the original stats of the weapon. It is thus impossible to forge a rune sword that stacks up Moonblade's or Aerondight's stats and stats given by runes.
  • It is possible to "steal" runes from blacksmith by simply dropping (selling is also possible) them during transaction, and later re-use them to another sword. Works same with meteorite pieces.
