How to Farm Wealth Runes Fast in Lost Ark

The Wealth Runes in Lost Ark are part of one of the many important end-game systems. They are some of the most sought-after runes because, if used correctly, they can truly enhance your character.

You can be forgiven for thinking runes are not really that important since they are not even mentioned that much at the beginning of the game.

But runes are really important. They can enhance your class and completely change the way you play the game with said class.

Runes go hand-in-hand with other systems in the game. Speaking of which, here’s all you need to know about engravings.

What Are Wealth Runes in Lost Ark

Wealth Runes are a special kind of rune that increases your “Identity Gauge” by 10/20/30 or 40% upon skill hit, depending on the rarity of the rune you have.

Wealth runes are best assigned to skills that generate a lot of identity.

The “Identity Gauge” is a meter that charges a powerful class skill that is unique to every class, like “Burst mode” for the Berserker.

They come in four rarities, uncommon, rare, epic, and legendary, and are some of the rarer drops in the game. They drop from unique bosses but can also be found in some shops.

Don’t forget to claim your free launch celebration gift; it can help you skip a lot of grinding. Also, specialize your class even more by building the right deck of cards.

Farming Wealth Runes Fast in Lost Ark

Before jumping into the fight to farm for legendary wealth runes, there are some things you need to know.

The first is, legendary runes are not really worth it. They will take a lot of time to grind, especially if you’re unlucky with drops, and you can only get them via omnium stars.

40% Identity per skill hit sounds really good, but in practicality, it’s not that much different from the 30% or 20% runes.

Also, the epic rune is much easier to get since it drops from a boss battle. With a couple of tries, you can easily get your hands on it.

Here’s where you can find each rarity of Wealth Runes:

  • Uncommon – Stronghold Merchant Tuleu – Cost: Adventurer’s Seal x1,420
  • Uncommon – Tooki Island – Tooki King Loot
  • Rare – Stronghold Merchant Tuleu – Cost: Adventurer’s Seal x2,700
  • Rare – Giant’s Heart x5
  • Epic – Secret Map x34
  • Epic – Iar Kaya world boss drop
  • Legendary – Omnium Stars x5

Since the uncommon and rare runes are the easiest to get, you should focus on getting them first.

After that, you can see if your class REALLY needs more identity while fighting or not. If not, it’s perfectly fine to stay on rare/epic until later in the game.

The second thing you need to know is that wealth runes’ importance scales with how deep in the late game you are.

So, if you’ve just finished the campaign and are looking to boost your character, you’re better off starting from somewhere else.

A few good places to start are grinding your achievements to get amethyst stones or joining a guild for raids and dungeons.

And finally, make sure you fight one of the more interesting and unique raids in the game, the nightmare ghost ship.

Worst "how to" I have seen so far. Rare – Stronghold Merchant Tuleu – Cost: Adventurer’s Seal x2,700

You might want to explain to people how to unlock the trader Tuleu which is required before you can actually but it from him. Why can't i find a single website that actually give a little more input about the questline to unlock. I did the dalies got the scroll but scroll quest can't be activated because of missing quest in the dependency chain. But he won't tell me which quest.
