Elden Ring is, quite simply, one of the best games ever made. It has everything needed to immerse an interested gamer into its fantasy world. The game is not just a cakewalk too. It is challenging, testing gamers to the best of their abilities and letting them push themselves to the limit.

The game is very rewarding, that’s what we are trying to say.

However, the FromSoftware game, like almost any other game ever made, has currency, and if you want to (even remotely) enjoy this game, you have to be carrying a reasonable amount. The game’s currency is called runes.

Runes are the most important things in the Elden Ring. They are more important than weapons or potions or fancy spells. You need runes for almost everything. For example, you need runes for buying items, to upgrade your characters, to level up your character, and to level up your weapons.

So you need quite a lot of runes. How do you get these runes and what are the best and easiest ways to do it? 

Let’s dive right in, into lots and lots of runes.

How To Get Elden Runes Quickly

To quickly get runes, you can either buy them, kill demigods, or farm them.

Buying Runes

Like almost any other game that has currency in high demand, runes are sold online for real-world money. What can we say, the world is rough and people need money.

You can buy Elden Ring runes on many platforms. For example, if you want to buy Elden Ring runes on eBay, there are several sellers with different prizes. Hundreds of millions of runes go for three-figure sums, and a dedicated Elden Ring rune farmer can easily make up to $1000 in a week.

Because you cannot sell Elden Ring runes in the game, the whole thing is conducted like a trade. The person who wants to buy Elden Ring runes will pay for the runes then agree on a time and place to meet in-game. Then in-game, the seller summons the person who agreed to buy Elden Ring runes and then uses their inventory to drop the number of runes they both agreed on. The buyer then picks up the runes, and that’s it.

There are many other places to buy Elden Ring runes online apart from eBay, such as Players can even decide to reach out to each other privately and meet physically.

It’s a quick way to get a lot of runes and level up quickly. This is the best option for individuals who need to level up very fast without the need to earn it themselves. 

Defeating Demigods

Demigods are the main bosses of the Elden Ring game. In the game, they all hold pieces of the titular Elden Ring called the Great Runes, and your chief objective is to gather these Great Runes by defeating the demigods and putting the Elden Ring back together. This makes the player become the Elden Lord.

The Great Runes come with some pretty sweet rewards (for example increasing health and making the player heal faster). But defeating the demigods does not just come with Great Runes and amazing upgrades. It also gives you a lot of runes, even though only two Great Runes out of seven give runes as a reward.

  • Radahn’s Great Rune gives you 70,000 runes to spend on your character.
  • Morgott’s Great Rune gives you 120,000 runes

While this is a good way to get a lot of runes in a really short time, it is also extremely difficult because the demigods are really hard to beat. Also, there is only a limited amount of runes you can get from using this method.

However, if you like a big challenge, then this method is your style.

Farming Runes

There are some specific locations in the Elden Ring game that contain a lot of runes that players can farm to replenish their runes and so on. These are some of the best places to farm runes in the Elden Ring game.

  • Palace Approach Ledge-Road

You need to have attained at least Level 50 to get the most out of this farming location.

There are two ways to reach the Palace Approach Ledge-Road. First, you could travel west from somewhere called the Consecrated Snowfield (use the map as a guide). Here, you will pass through a thick forest in the area called the Mountaintops of the Giants. It is defended by a character named the Sanguine Noble. You can easily defeat him and use the teleporter. You will get to the Palace Approach Ledge-Road.

Alternatively, you could meet White-Faced Varre in Liurnia of the Lakes. He then gives you a quest. If you complete it, you get the Pureblood Knight’s Medal. The Medal takes you to Mohgwyn Palace. There, you go backwards from your starting position, go up the ramp from the blood swamp, and you will arrive at the Palace Approach Ledge-Road Site of Grace.

Once you have gotten to the Ledge Road, all you need to do is shoot a bird with a single shot. You get 11,000 Runes with one shot. You just need to go back and repeat the process all over again for another 11,000, and so on.

  • Bestial Sanctum

To farm runes here, you should have attained at least Level 20. You also need to have faced Margit the Fell Omen and you must have been taken to the Roundtable Hold.

To get to the Bestial Sanctum, you need to converse with D, Hunter of the Dead who will give you directions that you can take to the Bestial Sanctum from Limgrave.

Then, go to the Third Church of Marika and acquire the Flask of Wondrous Physik. Then go north to a river, then turn right and follow the river. There, you will see a clump of trees with a teleporter there. Teleport to the Bestial Sanctum.

Be careful not to attract the attention of the boss standing outside the stairway. Go to the open plains. There, you will see small creatures in robes carrying either scythes or chains. They are really small, but they are strong, so don’t underestimate them.

Sneak up behind them and kill them. You get 1,000 runes for each one you kill.

If you die at any point, you can use your steed Torrent to ride back to your location and retrieve your runes, which is great as you don’t lose progress when you die.

  • Stormgate

This location is great for people just starting the game. You don’t need to have defeated any major bosses and so on. Just head to Stormgate. You will find some big trolls North of Stormgate. Each one you kill gives about 100 runes. They are dangerous and they hit hard, but they are really slow. So if you can avoid fighting them in a bunch or in a tight space, you should be fine. You can accumulate a lot of runes to prepare to face some early big bosses like Godrick.

Here are some of the ways to get plenty of runes at once and level up quickly. Good luck!
