What are Golden Runes in Elden Ring?

Gain a small number of Runes!

In Elden Ring, players need to get familiarized with all the new concepts that they will come across in the Lands Between. Golden Runes are one of these new concepts in Elden Ring, and players will come across them early on after defeating opponents. 

Golden Runes are consumable items found at dead bodies, or inside glowing skulls that can be smashed by players. They are essentially used to gain a small number of Runes that help to level up your character's attributes.

Golden Runes are stored in a player's inventory, and you will need to scroll down to find and consume them. Multiple Golden Runes can be selected at once, and players can absorb all of them at the same time.

After selecting Golden Runes from the inventory your character absorbs its energy. Players will come across more of these Golden Runes during their expedition in the Lands Between. You can choose to use these Runes to level up at Sites Of Grace or use them to purchase items from vendors in Elden Ring.
