FromSoftware’s open-world game “Soulsborne”, where players can level up using the Elden Ring runes, is how they do it. Runes are usually earned by exploring the open-world and killing enemies. Some players are now turning to this to get runes quicker.
PCGamer has reported that eBay is selling millions upon millions “Elden Ring” runes for real money at the moment. People want to get as high as possible without putting in too much effort.
Prices for a few thousand runes can start at $10, but they can easily rise to hundreds of dollars if you need to purchase hundreds of millions. eBay shows that most listings are for consoles (PS4, PS5, Xbox One), but also covers PC players.
Also, you’ll notice that the listing always says “in-game drop,” which describes how runes are given to buyers in-game. The process works like this: You buy a rune package at a certain amount and the seller arranges a time and location to meet up. The seller summons the buyer and makes them a co-op partner. After that, the seller drops the runes onto the ground for the buyer, and they part ways.
This works much like an MMO classic item swap. These so-called “gray markets deals” may sound great, but they might not be the best idea if you’re looking to continue playing “Elden Ring.”
It is against the rules to buy runes
A report from IGN shows that selling or buy Elden Ring Runes items for real money is against the game’s Terms and Service. This was based on a report from FromSoftware. This is the ruling, but it’s not verbatim.
“No player shall have the right to sell or buy from another any of the rights he/she holds as a Player and any items, characters and saved data within the software that were obtained through the Services (including “real money trading”).
FromSoftware could suspend or ban you from the game if you are caught engaging in this type of trade. However, there are no details on how the developer monitors these sales or whether they have already punished players.
You could also call them “DIY microtransactions”, which would sum up the activities of some zealous players in Elden Ring. Selling Runes on Ebay.
Runes are the equivalent of Dark Souls souls. They can be obtained by defeating bosses, mobs and enemies, but also through consumable , which can be found within the Interregnum. These items can be “consumed” in order to get currency that can be used to purchase items, upgrades, leveling up, and currency.
Someone decided to sell their runes (or hacks to have infinite runes, ed). After buying them on Ebay, you will need to contact the seller to see if he can help you evoke your character or vice versa and drop any runes that were illegally purchased.
In some cases, there is even a price list. This is not a good thing and could lead to both buyers and sellers being banned. According to Elden Ring’s terms of service, article 10 states that players cannot sell or buy anything from other players, even characters and saved data. “.
