There are seven Great Runes to have in Elden Ring. These are powerful items that provide different types of passive bonuses, which is precisely why each Great Rune will require players to defeat a demigod in the game. The following guide will explain all Elden Ring Great Runes Locations for players to know.
Elden Ring Great Runes Locations
Once a Great Rune is dropped by a demigod, it will first need to be activated at its corresponding Divine Tower.
After activation, in order to equip it, you will need to head to a Site of Grace and then use a rare consumable called Rune Arc. By doing this, your Great Rune will become active and it will stay so until you die or switch it out for another Great Rune.
Below we have listed the locations of all the Great Runes that are present in Elden Ring and how to get them.
