Elden Ring Early Game Rune Farming Exploit Guide

Read this guide to learn how to get infinite runes with the Elden Ring early game rune farming exploit.

Runes are one of the most important elements in Elden Ring, and the ability to farm thousands of these quickly in the early game can prove to be game-changing. Runes are the main form of currency in the game. With their help, you can acquire several useful items from vendors. Additionally, raking up these runes can also help you level up. Since runes can be hard to come by, knowing how to take advantage of farming exploits is extremely important. In this guide, we will show you how to use the rune farming exploit for Elden Ring’s early game.

How to Use the Elden Ring Early Game Rune Farming Exploit?



In order to use and take advantage of the Elden Ring early game Rune farming exploit, you need to unlock the initial part of the map. After doing so, you need to head over to the First Step Site of Grace. Once here, head south. Hop off the cliffs, and make sure to hop with your horse into one of the channels of air. Doing so will ensure you avoid taking fall damage.

Now, ride over to the east and pick up the small piece of hidden treasure on the pilgrim’s body (Gold Pickled Fowl Foot). Next, ride a whirlwind to leap into the air. After doing so, get back to The First Step.


Once you do so, head into the map and run along the course of the lake shore until you arrive close to a road with a fork in it. You need to travel to this area. We recommend you set a waypoint here by pressing A. Once here, you will arrive at a Site of Grace.

Now, make your way along the path close to the said Site of Grace. You need to do so until you arrive at a bridge. Remember to avoid the Ballisters here. Also, ignore the enemies you come across on the way to the bridge. Keep moving once you arrive at the Weeping Peninsula. On your way, you will come across an abandoned carriage. Explore it to find the Morning Star item in a chest.

After you do so, head back to Agheel Lake South. Next, continue to make your way further up the path towards the northeast. Keep doing so until you arrive at the Church of Marika. Once in the church, activate the Site of Grace.


After you do so, move out of the church and look for the teleporter hidden in the bushes. Activate the said teleporter, and travel to Greyoll’s Dragonbarrow. Once here, head into the map and place a waypoint towards the south, on one of the clouded areas. Doing so will see you arrive at Minor Erdtree. Ignore any enemies that you come across on the way to this location.

Keep moving ahead until you arrive at a giant cliff face. Once you climb the said face, you will come across a giant dragon. Ride around it until you arrive close to his wing. After you do so, move towards the back of the dragon. Jump off the horse, and then start attacking your dragon. Continuously doing so will help you add up immense damage. Keep doing so until the dragon’s health reduces. The entire process of killing this harmless dragon takes around 5 minutes.

Once the dragon’s health gets dangerously low, head into your inventory and equip the Gold-Pickled Fowl Foot into your quick slot. Continue attacking the dragon once you do so. Next, activate the foot, and then proceed to kill the dragon. Doing so will enable you to get your hands on a large number of Runes.


So there you have it. This is all you need to know about the Elden Ring early game Rune farming exploit and how to use it. As you can see, doing so does not take a lot of your time. Following the steps in this guide will see you rack up Runes within no time!
