Ascend: New Gods Details Runes

By Michelle Balsan, 3 years ago
The Caos Warriors in Signal Studios' Ascend: Hand of Kul will need to use every skill at their disposal in order to be victorious. We've learned about magic and crusade spells, but certainly not every form of aid will come through spellcraft.

Now, we have some details as to runes, and the help that they will provide.

Runes in Action


Runes are enchanted stones that can "increase everything from your defense, agility, critical strike chance, melee/magic damage, and dodge chances". You can find them throughout the world of Ascend in treasure chests or you can use souls to purchase them at shops. The come in varying rarities, too - uncommon, common, rare, and store-only.

Using gems wisely will allow you a better chance at survival in Ascend: New Gods. Those of you eager to get to customizing your weapons with these enhancements will be able to do so once the game is released on XBLA later this year.
