Rune Guide for Demigod

2 1,240

After a long wait, the Runes have now started to rain down on the Demigod realm! Just in the past few weeks there have been five sets released to compliment your gear. We will take a closer look at each rune set so you can determine which rune set is best for you.

The Basics of Runes

I know most players will already know the basics. However, there has been an increase of players returning to the game. The basics are necessary, and sometimes even the regular players can use a refresher course too!

Runes are similar to gems in a few ways. Runes are released in sets of four, and runes are used to enhance stats for your gear. The four runes are Fire, Water, Void, and Earth. Unlike gems, runes are not for every piece of gear. You can only add runes to your weapon. Also similar to gems, the runes are usually released in sets for attack, defense, rally attack, etc.

If you view your runes through the forge, you will view only the basic stats. This is where some players are confused because the blog stats do not match the stats of the rune. Rune research was released a very long time ago.

The runes research tree has research slots that unlock multipliers for each of the four runes. If you are returning to Game of War after a long period of time, make sure that the runes research is complete or you will not be reaching your full stat potential!

Here are the stats of runes when viewed through forge inventory:

And here are the stats of runes after research is completed and is viewed through rune equip screen:

Rune Guide for Your City!

Now we can compare each of the five new rune sets and see where they fit into your build!

Defense Rune Sets

  • Amberlight Rune Set
  • Calcified Rune Set

The Amberlight set is the most recent of the two, so the stats are slightly better. If you do not have the amberlight set just yet, the calcified rune set will work just as well. Each of these sets feature heavier defense compared to other rune sets. The defense is also supported by attack, health, and attack debuff.

Attack and Rally Attack Runes

  • Iridescent Rune Set
  • Brunet Rune Set

The Brunet set is the older of the two sets, however, the stats are slightly higher in some areas. The Iridescent set has empire rally attack and the Brunet runes have the original rally attack. Attack in the Brunet is higher than the Iridescent, 750% compared to 450%. In the Iridescent runes, the empire rally attack is lower than the rally attack in the Brunet set. Also, the rally attack in the Brunets would apply to rallies on the wonder and on empires. The empire rally attack on the iridescents applies when rallying strongholds only. What makes the Iridescent set superior to the Brunet set is the debuffs. Defense Debuff and Health Debuff are both higher in the newer Iridescent set.
