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 the Wind Rune Shrine structure.
As of 3.2, Rune Shrine blocks can no longer be crafted and must be picked up from 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.
