In many multiplayer online games, various characters have ultimate abilities. While there isn’t any kind of ultimate system in Spellbreak, it is replaced with runes. Runes are magical equipment like belts or gauntlets but instead will give you a new unique ability, usually related to mobility.
There are seven ruins currently in the game, five mobility runes, and two tactical runes. Every rune has a cooldown time that lowers the higher the tier of that rune you have, with five tiers in total. The standard max rune charge is one, and cannot recharge while hovering.
