Unlock Rune Smithing in Lords of the Fallen

How to Unlock Rune Smithing in Lords of the Fallen?

Lords of the Fallen is a mysterious game, following the steps of Dark Souls and Blood Bourne, aiming to make things most competitive for players. While you can enhance or upgrade your weaponry through Gerlinde the Blacksmith, there is one thing missing, “Rune Smithing”.

Rune Smithing allows you to utilize the runes found throughout the game and put those runes to the weapons to increase certain weapon attributes. But, how to get the Rune Smithing from Sparky?

Here in this guide, I am going to share with you all the elements of How to Unlock Rune Smithing in Lords of the Fallen by following the Sparky-Gerlinde Quest.

Finding Gerlinde Blacksmith

First of all, you need to find Gerlinde, who is a Blacksmith and later on helps us get the Gerlinde Quest, further pointing towards the Rune Smithing.

She is trapped in the lower mine cell area of the Pilgrim’s Perch. You can find the key, just below the Vestige of Blind Agatha, taking the elevator underground. Fight the enemies and one of them will drop off the Key to Gerlinde’s Cell.

After you talk to Gerlinde, she is going to give you the Gerlinde Rune Tablet Quest, where you have to find 3 Rune Tablets in Lords of the Fallen.

Just as we mentioned, there are three tablets you need to find.
