Runes are dropped from monsters, bosses, and chests all over Albion, especially in dungeons. Along with souls and relics, they are used to enchant items, meld artifacts, and transmute items. Runes can be crafted from Siphoned Energies.

Tier of runes dropped is limited by the tier of the monster killed. Only rare bosses can drop higher tier runes (to confirm)

(Need more information on drop rate/zone)
