What are the Undecember rune types?

There are three different types of Undecember runes, skill runes, link runes, and runestones. Each has a slightly different effect, so check out below for some in-depth information on each power-up.

Undecember skill runes

Skill runes are hexagonal in shape and allow you to use specific melee, ranged, and skill spells (also known as attack, agility, and intelligence in Undecember). With six spaces to equip link runes around your skill runes – more on that below – you can improve your attacks in the rune menu at any time.

Undecember link runes

Link runes are used to further power skill runes and are available in red, blue, and green varieties. You can equip up to six link runes per skill rune, so be sure to look out for any possible synergy between the effects.

Undecember runestones

You can use runestones to enchant specific skill runes, with up to three equipable across all of your rune slots. Every individual runestone has its own upgrade effect, so try and use them in conjunction with your skill runes to create more powerful attacks.

Where can I get Undecember runes?

You can pick up new Undecember runes by speaking to Mystic Pauline in the town area. This NPC has skill and link runes in her inventory. The same goes for if you want to upgrade any of your runes, just check in with Pauline and make sure you have the items you need to level up your gear.

Of course, you also get skill and link runes from completing missions and reaching certain milestones in the game. It’s also worth keeping an eye out for any in-game events, as there might be special runes up for grabs for a limited time.
