A simple guide to farming runes
You’ll get 1,084 – 1,094 runes per enemy. (Critical on last hit, gives more runes)
I tried to keep it as spoiler free as possible. You will see an area, a gameplay mechanic, and one type of enemy that you probably haven’t encountered before.
Head over to this area on your map (east of the gate, or northeast of the starting area)
You’ll see a portal. Use it to teleport to the new area.
I’ll try to hide as much as possible.
You’ve been warned
You’ve now reached Dragonbarrow
Open the door in front of you, and you’ll find a site of grace
Turn around, and head down the steps. Ignore the enemy, usually not aggro. Not sure what triggers it, besides attacking. Blurred the enemy, so you can see it for yourself in-game.
These are the enemies you’ll be farming. They hit pretty hard (which is why you should probably rest at the first site of grace), but can be staggered fairly easily, and you can circle around them for easy backstabs.
Personally, I find this location to be better, since you don’t have to deal with the enemy by the steps.
