Great Runes are an incredibly powerful tool in the Elden Ring arsenal that might go completely unnoticed by players for a long time. While you won’t get your first one until defeating Godrick, you’ll still need to equip it in order to use its full power. Here’s how to equip Great Runes in Elden Ring.

After defeating Godrick in Stormveil Castle he will drop a Great Rune. You’ll need to head to the Divine Tower of Limgrave to actually unlock the rune, but if you’ve done that already equipping the Rune itself is extremely easy.

Head to any Site of Grace and rest there. In the drop-down menu of everything you can do, you’ll see the Great Rune selection option.

Click on it and then click on Godrick’s Great Rune to equip it on your character. Now while you have it equipped it isn’t currently active. In order to activate the Great Rune, you’ll need a consumable item known as a Rune Arc. These are hidden away all over the Lands Between and are a precious resource.

All Great Runes, no matter who or what you get them from will be obtained and activated the same way.

Using a Rune Arc will activate the Great Rune, but only until you die. So make sure you’re using them for fights you’re really going to need the extra power for.
