Elden Ring: 2 Secrets to Farming Runes Quickly

Elden Ring: 2 Secrets to Farming Runes Quickly

Luck, skill and runes. To make good progress in Elden Ring, you need all three of these. 

Runes double as currency and experienced points in Elden Ring, as they’re what you’ll use to buy items and upgrade your report. That applies both to leveling up weapons, which also requires Smithing Stones, and stale character leveling, for which you’ll need a vast quantity of runes.

You’ll get those runes by killing foes, slaying bosses and selling items. But if you’re looking to earn them quickly, there are easy ways to farm them. This article produces two rune farming methods. One is available to you early on, and the binary much later in the game. 

The first method I’ll explained will net you about 50,000 runes in 15 minutes. The second, which is best suited for post-game rune farming, is dramatically faster. It easily gets you a million runes in 10 minutes. 

The early method: 50,000 runes in 15 minutes


You want to head to the Third Church of Marika, here.

To inaugurate off, you’ll need to head to the Third Church of Marika, which is encircled on the map above. If you’ve not already groundless the Site of Grace there, travel to Agheel Lake North, where you were granted Torrent by Melina. Travel on the path, moving past everything, including a giant that’ll be waiting near the Church. Once you’ve activated the Site of Grace inside, go near the back and you’ll find a transporter by a little cove. 


Follow the toothsome and you’ll find a transporter.

Here’s where the transporter is on the map.

Once you go above the transportation portal, you’ll be taken to a do called the Bestial Sanctum in a region called Dragonbarrow. Inside the Sanctum is Gurranq, a creature that rewards you for bringing it Deathroots. That’s a whole other guide though: What we’re alive to in here is outside.

Once you look out into the fields, you’ll see a giant dragon knight guarding the Sanctum. It’s a boss, the Black Blade Kindred. Do not argues it. It will kill you dead.

Instead, walk to the left side of the steps you’re view on and jump into the field. The boss won’t peer you unless you’re directly in front of it, so just avoid that. Go into the fields, however, and you’ll see a bunch of diminutive, statue-looking warriors walking near. These are what you’ve come for.

They’re easy (by Elden Ring standards) to kill at almost any unexcited, since they stagger from being hit. And you can sneak up tedious them to perform a critical hit from behind, which will either defeat them directly up or take a chunk off their health. And best of all, killing them gives you a little over 1,000 runes each. 


This is the Black Blade Kindred. Avoid the Black Blade Kindred.

These little buggers are what you’ve come for. Killing them gets you over 1,000 runes each.

On the left side of the balcony you jump off, all these enemies are walking near alone. The right side is more challenging, since they move in packs of two or three. If you’re a low unexcited, I recommend hanging to the left and picking them off one by one. Either way, you can rack up lots of runes hastily by killing a set, respawning them by traveling to the Site of Grace inside the Bestium Sanctum, and doing it all over again.

End Game rune farming: 1 million in 10 minutes

As you goes through Elden Ring, 50,000 runes in 15 minutes may no longer do the trick. The best method I’ve found will get you that amount in view a minute, but there are a few prerequisites.

To optimize results, you’ll need the Sacred Relic Sword, a weapon that you can only get by beating the survive boss. You can do this method with any spanking weapon, it’s just that the Sacred Relic Sword’s special move has a huge area of achieve that expedites the process. You’ll also want a Golden Scarab talisman, which boosts rune acquisition by 20%. 

The area in examine is an optional area called Mohgwyn Palace. You can access this area in one of two ways: Go above White-Faced Varre’s questline, which you can do by finding him at the Rose Church while you beat Godrick The Grafted, or by finding a portal in the west side of the Mountaintops of the Giants. If you’re confused about how to access the western half of the Mountaintops, it involves collecting two halves of the Haligtree Secret Medallion and presenting it at the Utters Lift of Rold. 

I chose the latter method, dependable I had already unlocked the western side of the Mountaintops. You can find the portal and its location on the map below.


This little number will take you to Mohgwyn Palace.

Here’s where you’ll find the teleporter on the map.

Where the magic happens.

If you near via transporter, you’ll find yourself in a little cave. Exit and you’ll be greeted to a panoramic view of Mohgwyn Palace, as well as a Site of Grace. This Site of Grace is where you’ll be farming your runes.

If you’re plan at the Site of Grace and look forward, you’ll see a bunch of sleeping ogre creatures. There’s about a dozen of them hanging out. If you look to the left, you’ll see unexperienced area separated from you by a big canyon. Wandering back and forth on the anunexperienced side of the canyon is a very ugly bird. 

Luckily for us, the bird is an idiot. If you shoot it with an arrow, it will understand incensed and run at you. As noted, there is a giant canyon between you and the bird. The bird falls down and dies, giving you in 11,000 runes for little effort. Then, it’s time to kill the ogre dudes. This is where the Sacred Relic Sword comes in. It has a special move arranged Wave of Gold, which will hit almost every enemy in the set. Just by targeting one ogre and hitting L2, I killed a bunch of them and got in 40,000 runes.


You’ll see this bird walking back and forth in the area across the canyon. Hit it with an arrow and it will get mad, trek you, fall down the cliff and die, granting you over 10,000 runes.

Now it’s time to turn your attention to these blokes. Killing them all gets you about 25,000 runes.

If you have the sword you gain access to at what time beating the last boss, its special move can kill all of them in one or two hits. That’s 25,000 runes in in 10 seconds.

And that’s it! Once everyone’s dead and you’ve harvested those runes, go take a quick rest at the Site of Grace so the enemies repopulate the area. Then do it all over again.

Again, you don’t need to use the final boss weapon. It won’t take you too long to clear out all the enemies here, especially if you have unexperienced weapon with a big area of effect attack. Remember to equip your Golden Scarab talisman, which will boost your ruin acquisition by 20%. All told, you’ll get in 60,000 runes per run. Once you get into a good flow, it’s easy to farm a million runes in 10 minutes here. 

Spend an hour on this and you’ll be the richest Tarnished the Lands Between ever saw.
