Bloodrune

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

Bloodrunes can be used in conjunction with a MoonShard pendant in order alter the appearance of its glamour or with a bloodrune holder to create an illusion. Using stones found in the sewers and a chisel, they can be created by carving an ur-barath totem. When a bloodrune is in use, it adds an additional line to the pendant's SHOW description and alters the glamour that the pendant projects based on its tier.

Bloodrunes can be TURNed to prevent them from being sold to the archaeologist NPC. MARK does not work with this item.

Flat Etched Stone

Flat etched stones are found in the sewers of Duskruin. Using a chisel sold at Mar and Scar, along with an ur-barath totem, you can READ the stone to commit the rune to memory before you CARVE the totem with the chisel.

Analyze

This etched stone is of the <type> tier.  To learn more about it, you should ask the dwarven archaeologist  around the Underground Temple of Bloodriven Village.  Or, you can READ the stone to burn the image to your memory for a short time.

Your etched stone can be purchased by the Archaeologist in Bloodriven Village.  Use TURN to mark it as unsellable.

Usage

Verb First Third
LOOK This smooth stone bears unfamiliar markings along its flat surface. Thin veins of crimson create a web-like pattern across its exterior.

There appears to be something written on it.

N/A
READ Carved into the top of the stone is the "<rune>" rune. While unfamiliar, you sense that reading it again will set its design to memory and cause the stone to crumble.

If you are ready to study this stone, READ the stone again within 15 seconds.
[NOTE: You must have a totem and a chisel in order to carve.]

N/A
TURN You flip a flat etched stone over in your hand and scratch the stone with your fingernail, creating a small "X" along its surface. This section has not been added yet; please add to it now!
You flip a flat etched stone over in your hand and scratch the stone with your fingernail, scraping off a small "X" along its surface. This section has not been added yet; please add to it now!
This toggles if the stone can be sold to the archaelogist in the Arena for bloodscrip.

Bloodrune

Bloodrunes are created when a totem has been carved with a chisel after the stone has been read and crumbles.

There are multiple tiers: Classic, Divine, Arcane, Mystic, and Legendary. Verb usage for the bloodrune is similar to its flat etched stone version.

Analyze

The creator has also provided the following information:

This moss-covered bloodrune is of the <type> tier.  Using PUSH (pendant) while holding a ragged moss-covered bloodrune you can add it to the pendant.  Likewise, you can PULL (pendant) to remove a bloodrune that has been added.  Speak to the dwarven archaeologist around the Underground Temple of Bloodriven Village for more information.

Your moss-covered bloodrune can be purchased by the Archaeologist in Bloodriven Village.  Use TURN to mark it as unsellable.

Divine

Divine bloodrunes are the second most common tier able to be found in the sewers. Similar to the classic tier, they add a line to the MoonShard pendant's original glamour effect, and align with specific deities. A blood-infused crystal can be used to slightly alter the rune on divine bloodrunes, changing the moonshard pendant's base glamour.

  • Bloodrune Holder
Effect: Miniature <item> spiral outward from (him/her) before fading away.
  • MoonShard Pendant
Effect: Interspersed within the dim aura are miniature <item> that float around (him/her).

Arcane

Arcane bloodrunes are the third tier available, and were initially introduced during the August 2017 Duskruin run. Unlike the classic or divine, arcane bloodrunes change the entire glamour affect of the MoonShard pendant instead of adding a line at the end of it. Blood-infused crystals can be used to change the location in the pendant's glamour from Bloodriven Village to the location associated with the rune on the crystal.

  • Bloodrune Holder
Effect: Arcane <rune> sigils glow in front of (him/her).
  • MoonShard Pendant:

Legendary

Legendary bloodrunes are the final tier of bloodrunes and are limited to a release of 1 per instance. Similar to arcane and mystic tiers, they change the glamour projected by a moonshard pendant. Additionally, they work with corresponding cloaks that are released during the same run but in alternate methods, such as the Treasure Trove.

Two thick horns protrude from the top of <his/her> head and taper to extreme points. <His|Her> menacing golden eyes appear to flash intermittently but exude a great sense of intelligence.

^O== Black Yeti December 2016 Shaggy Fur Cloak Through a <pendant color> haze, <your name>'s features appear transformed into those of a yeti. Barely recognizable, <he|she> is covered in long, gristly hair tinged from deep scarlet to stark black.

|O| Cave Troll April 2017 Trollhide Cloak Through a <pendant color> haze, <your name>'s features appear transformed into those of a cave troll. Towering above most giantmen, <his|her> hulking stature alone is intimidating.

An overwhelming stench of decay lingers around <him|her>.
|X| Troll King April 2017 Trollhide Cloak Through a <pendant color> haze, <your name>'s features appear transformed into those of a troll king. With arms like enormous tree branches and claws sharp as razors, <he|she> appears quite a formidable opponent. Grotesque clusters of scab-ridden warts along <his|her> dark green leathery skin are slightly overshadowed by bits of bloodied flesh that dangle from <his|her> oversized incisors. While <his|her> size and appearance is quite intimidating, a vacant look exists in <his|her> eyes.
~\\O//~ Storm Griffin February 2018 Feather Cloak Through a <pendant color> haze, <your name>'s features appear transformed into those of a storm griffin. In contradiction, large powder-blue feathers gracefully frame <his|her> face, but <his|her> aquiline nose presents validity to <his|her> ability to slice through the thickest of flesh with ease. <His|Her> muscular and powerful hindquarters are only slightly less intimidating than the massive claws that could assassinate any opponent in one brutal swipe. An elongated, sandy blonde feline tail with a tuft of a darker-hued fur swats tirelessly at the air around <him|her>, and <he|she> seems to almost hover a few inches off the ground, propelled by <his|her> daunting, but magnificent, wings.
~\\X//~ War Griffin February 2018 Feather Cloak Through a <pendant color> haze, <your name>'s features appear transformed into those of a war griffin.

\\~oOo~// Vesperti June 2018 Tenebrous Cloak Through a <pendant color> haze, <your name>'s features appear transformed into those of a vesperti. Willowy thin and tall, <his|her> lithe form is covered in coarse black fur. Intense grey eyes stare out from beneath a mane of tousled hair, while the fine features of <his|her> face resemble an elven ancestry. A veined membrane of skin extends from <his|her> ankles up to his wrists, their edges scalloped like those of a bat's wings. Tapered digits bearing glossy black claws cap the wings at taloned feet and hands.

Thirteen <hair color> serpents ring <his|her> head, bestowing <her|him> a full crown of the twisting vipers as they writhe back and forth in an undulating, hypnotic fashion. <His|Her> pale, lidless eyes are devoid of pupils -- merely rippling with faint hints of <eye color> every few moments. Twin pairs of fangs peek out from beneath <his|her> thin lips, and the smoothness of <his|her> skin fades away into sleek scales below <his|her> abdomen, <his|her> lower body tapering into a massive, sinuous tail like that of a snake.
.-'', _( )____ Giant Rat August 2020 Scraggly Rat Fur Cloak Through an <pendant color> haze, <character> features appear to be transformed into those of a giant rat. Dark, scruffy amber fur dominates his pot-bellied form, while beady crystal green eyes gaze over a pointed snout with two very large, white front teeth. Two naked pink ears, the right of which is missing a large chunk, twitch as he listens to everything around him. A long, seemingly bald tail stretches out behind him.
