The central premise of the Elden Ring is that after the proud artifact was destroyed, all the scattered fragments took the form of a great rune, in which lurks unimaginable and often uncontrollable power. When you get these uppercase runes yourself, you can use a small part of their power, but to do this you need a special item called a runic bow. So what is the runic arc in the Elden ring?
What is the runic arc in the Elden ring?
Runic bows are very special and rare consumable items that can be found here and there in the world, bought from merchants, or looted from some defeated enemies. If you use Rune Arc on yourself, you’ll gain some small improvements to your stats, but nothing to write home about, and when you die (it’s not, when), these buffs will be lost. The real purpose of Runic Bows is to bring out the true power of great runes.
Every time you defeat a main demigod leader in the Elden Ring, you will get his Great Rune. However, the Great Runes are dormant, so you’ll need to find the corresponding Divine Tower in the upper world to activate them properly. Once the Great Rune is run properly, visit the location of the blessing and you can equip them for your character. However, they will not give you any advantages on their own.
This is where arcs and runes come in. Once your character’s equipped Grand Rune is activated, using a Runic Bow will grant your character any buffs associated with Grand Rune. For example, equipping the Great Rune of Godrick and using the Runic bow will give you a passive improvement on all of your stats. Again, these fingers will be lost when you die, but the Great Rune will still be equipped for you, so you just need to use another Arc Rune to summon them again. Remember, however, that Runic Bows aren’t exactly plentiful, so it’s best not to use them until you know you’ll need more strength, at least until you get better at the game.
