There are some legendary powerful runes in AC Valhalla. This guide on Where To Find Diamond Shaped Runes In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla explains the difference between the two core types of runes in the game as you may unlock the option to add these special diamond runes, before actually finding any.

Every weapon and armor piece in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla can be upgraded. As you increase a weapons rank, you can unlock additional rune slots. The typical rune slots are circular in design. These let you slot in common runes that are found throughout England. They can be dropped by enemies in combat, rewards for completing quests, there’s a lot of common runes and they only offer minor benefits. However, there are far more powerful runes that are only available when you upgrade weapons and armor to Mythical level, diamond shaped runes.

Diamond Runes are far more rare but also far more powerful. They vary greatly in the bonuses they provide. My personal favorite is the rune that restores health on a successful parry. Other options include a continuous increase in critical hit chance with each swing, a chance to set your weapon ablaze after a finisher, there’s a lot of cool and powerful effects that can really help fine tune your build as you head towards the latter stages of the game.

So, where do you get these runes? So far we have only discovered them by hunting down Order members. This is a lengthy quest line that opens up once you’ve build the Hidden Ones Bureau in your settlement. You can then find and kill members of the order. Almost all of them drop the legendary diamond shaped runes so make sure you stick to this quest line if you want to increase your power.
