Things to Know Before Playing
Combat Runes are what unlock your character’s abilities. The more of a certain rune you use, the stronger that ability of your character. However, “eating” a rune like this also increases the cooldown time on the ability, so eating 100 Fireball runes gives you a 10k damage blast with a 30 minute cooldown time.
Most equipment has sockets for various enhancements. Most useful for socketing are runes, as socketing a rune into a piece of equipment will give you the same benefits of “eating” it with none of the extra cooldown time. As long as you have that item equipped, that is.
You’ll most likely picks up Combat Runes that your character can’t actually use. Don’t just sell them! The wizard NPCs in certain towns will trade Combat Runes with you; the more you trade at once, the better your choice of reward. Unusable runes also carry passive bonuses you can utilize through socketing.
These same Wizard NPCs also let you make Combo attacks, basically allowing you to string together a few of your combat abilities into one “hotkey”. The abilities in a combo are fired off sequentially, so remember that for something like magic with a duration effect, the first effect has to finish before the second begins and so on (so if you make a combo that’s Freeze Enemy -> Meteor ->, the Freeze Enemy effect will end before the Meteor effect begins.
