This article is about the block. For the structure, see Rune Shrine (structure).
The Rune Shrine is a block used for creating runes.
Obtaining[edit | edit source]
A Rune Shrine can be mined with a pickaxe. When mined, it drops itself. If mined without a pickaxe, it will drop nothing.
Natural Generation[edit | edit source]
Rune Shrine blocks can be found at the center of a Wind Rune Shrine structure.
Information[edit | edit source]
Creating Runes[edit | edit source]
The Rune Shrine block is used to mass-produce runes. The rune that the rune shrine produces depends on the Rune Posts surrounding it. Since rune posts are uncraftable/unbreakable in survival, the player will have to go to the Rune Shrine structures found throughout the dimensions.
Once at a Rune Shrine structure, the player must place the Rune Shrine block on the center of the structure, then right-click with it with either an Unpowered Rune or Charged Rune, depending on which rune is going to be produced (see Runes to see whether a rune requires unpowered or charged). Most runes will require the player to have a certain level of Runation in order to be created. As the player's level of Runation increases, some of the lower level runes will be produced in pairs.
History[edit | edit source]
|1.1||Added rune shrines. They generated in all rune shrine structures, and were also craftable with 8 Runium Chunks and 1 Diamond at the center.|
|3.0||Rune shrines no longer generate in rune shrine structures except for wind rune shrines.|
The diamond in the crafting recipe was replaced with a Carved Rune of Power.
|3.2||Rune shrine blocks can no longer be crafted and are now only obtained from wind rune shrine structures.|
