Runes in Minecraft Dungeons – All Locations Guide
The first thing to do is complete the game, that is, beat the Arch-Illager. When the credits start to roll, you can begin your quest to get all of the Minecraft Dungeons runes. When you are in the Camp area, go towards the northwest part. You will discover a new jump pad. With it you can move ahead until you see a drawbridge until you reach a church. Now, go inside the church. Once inside, you will get one rune automatically.
In order to reap the benefits of Runes, you must collect the rest of the them and place them in the church as instructed. You can choose to do it one by one or all at the same time.
Also note that only getting the Rune is the mission this time, finishing the level is not necessary. Sometimes, you might find a Rune early on in a level so it will save time if you quit and go back to the camp.
Creeper Woods Rune location
When you do the task of freeing the villagers, go left and fight the enemies you encounter. You need to look for a flat structure with cobblestones. Open the crypt by pressing the button in the gravel. A door will open up, go inside, interact with the switch which will reveal a Rune. Collect it.
Minecraft Dungeons Rune in Pumpkin Pastures
In this level, you need to look for a stone path on top of a wall where some wooden crates are lying around. This area will be easy to spot in your map, so make sure to check that out. Now walk towards the crates and use the switch behind them. The path which seemingly led to nowhere, now gets a secret door. Enter it and get your Rune.
How to get Soggy Swamp Rune
After you beat the Corrupted Cauldron boss, go to the right and look for a pillar. Some red mushrooms will grace the bottom of this said pillar. Search for a button behind these mushrooms, press it and enter the door. This will take you to a Rune.
