Rune farming is the well-known maidenless practice in Elden Ring of quickly maximizing one’s Rune income with the least possible effort, and Tarnished have been desperately searching for the best places to farm Runes since they’ve stepped foot into the Lands Between. Notable farming spots include the rolling ball hill of Lenne’s Rise and the perpetual AFK battle within the War-Dead Catacombs. Furthermore, players have stumbled upon many other farmable locations, varying on world progression or the individual’s level of power. However, one specific spot has persistently remained reliable since its discovery, making it arguably the best place to farm Runes in Elden Ring.
Best Rune Farm Location In Elden Ring
Naturally, the “best place” to farm Runes in Elden Ring will depend on a player’s preference. Yet, an objectively optimal location that has always provided excellent farming results is the Mohgwyn Palace subregion of Siofra River. Accordingly, patch after patch, the reputable Palace Approach Ledge-Road has offered and continually provides both weak and strong players a reliable source of Runes.
First, the Mohgwyn Palace features the “Bird Rune Farm,” an exploit in which Tarnished shoot arrows at a Giant Crow across the ravine to lure it to a fatal drop. This method is highly accessible for both high and low-level players. Next is one of the best mid to late-game Rune Farms in Elden Ring — clearing the Albinauric trail with AoE attacks. Although the end-game Sacred Relic Sword’s Wave of Gold is optimal for this farm, players can use any high DPS AoE ability to wave clear the Albinaurics along the Palace Approach Ledge-Road to earn a lucrative amount of Runes.
The final technique that makes Mohgwyn Palace the best place to farm Runes in Elden Ring is the “falling mounted sword-slash” exploit. This newly discovered approach requires players to leap off the back of the southwestern cliffs near Palace Approach Ledge-Road and continually swing their sword atop Torrent to earn Runes endlessly. While it’s unknown if this will be patched out in the future, Mohgwyn Palace has so many reliable and profitable methods of Rune farming, making it the ideal location for exploitative income.
Elden Ring is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
