What are Runes?
Runes are special items that can be attached to an Axie imbuing them with unique powers. You can only install 1 Rune per Axie, and it can be obtained through Crafting. More information about Crafting can be found in the Crafting Guide.
Example of a Rune
Rune’s effects are passive, meaning they automatically activate during battle.
Each Rune has a:
- Class: Beast - Plant - Aqua - Bug - Reptile - Bird - Mech - Dusk - Dawn and Neutral
- Rarity: Common - Rare - Epic - Mystic
Runes can only be installed attached to an Axie of a matching Class. For example, Reptile runes can only be attached to Reptile Axies.
Some special Runes cannot be crafted, and can only be obtained through game modes and events.
Runes can be NFT or Non-NFT, and Seasonal or Nonseasonal.
Sealed Runes & Ronin Runes
Sealed Runes (Non-NFT) will always be Neutral and cannot be traded, while Ronin Runes (NFT) can be traded on the Marketplace and these runes will have specific Classes. You can learn more about Ronin Runes here.
Seasonal & Nonseasonal Runes
In every new season, new Seasonal Runes will be added to the game. There are also Nonseasonal Runes, but they will rarely be added. With every new season, some older Seasonal Runes will be retired, while Nonseasonal Runes will never be retired. It is also important to note that Nonseasonal Runes will be weaker than Seasonal runes.
Deprecated Runes cannot be crafted or used in battle, but can still be kept in your collection or disenchanted to get Moonshards and SLP.
