Runes are Cosmetic items which can be applied to certain items in SkyBlock.

Obtaining

Runes are dropped from various Runic mobs through all of SkyBlock. When a mob spawns, it has a 0.5% chance to be a Runic mob. Depending on the player's Runecrafting level, they'll be able to obtain more variations of Runes.

Usage

Runes can be applied to various types of items throughout SkyBlock. In the tables below, it says what type of item each Rune can be applied to. They can also be fused together to upgrade them to the next tier. The highest tier of a Rune is tier III. As the Rune's tier gets higher, it will display more particles when applied to an item.

All of this is done by talking to Dusk in the Hub. There's a Runic Pedestal where you can combine the runes or combine them with other items. If you decide you no longer want a Rune on your item, you can use the Rune Removal option located in the Runic Pedestal.
