All 9 Rune Locations
What are Runes
Hidden amongst All main story missions, you will find 9 runes that can be used to unlock a hidden level titled “Moo?”, which as you can guess, is entirely made up of Mooshroms. Unfortunately, these once friendly creatures are now filled with anger and ready to attack on site.
It is believed that this hidden level is a reference to Diablo II, which also featured a hidden Cow level.
How Do You Find Runes
Before you go finding runes, it is important to ensure that you have completed the game on Default difficulty mode. Without this level of difficulty completed, the runes will not appear for you in game.
Should you have completed the game, it’s now time to unlock the area in which you will need to access. To do this, make your way to the large church that can be found in the South Eastern area of your camp.
To initially reach the church, you will need to travel through some nearby trees. Once outside the church, pull the lever if you already haven’t to lower the drawbridge to the ground.
Now, head inside and make your way to the very end of the room. Here you will find a wall with a button on the ground and 9 symbols. Pressing the button will turn all of your currently collected runes Purple.
How to Find the Creeper Woods Rune Location
The Creeper Woods rune can be found at the very end of the level, where you are tasked with freeing a large group of villagers.
You will find the Rune upon locating a stone crypt that is built into the ground, towards the left side of the large open area that is shared with the trapped villagers.
Once you have located the crypt, stand on top of the door and it will begin to open. Head inside and collect the rune.
How to Find the Soggy Swamp Rune Location
Like Creeper Woods, the Soggy Swamp rune can be found at the very end of the level, just right of the exit. You will find the rune by activating a button that can be found on the ground, in front of a large stone pillar. Activating the button will open a nearby hidden door.
Inside the door, you will find the Rune.
How to Find the Cacti Canyon Rune Location
The Cacti Canyon rune can be found just outside the area that has the Blue Golem key inside. You will find the rune by searching the ground next to the Palm Tree on the left.
Here, you will find a button that can be activated and will open a door at the back of the Blue Golem Key’s room.
How to Find the Pumpkin Pastures Rune Location
Located approximately half way through the Pumpkin Pastures level, you will find the rune by interacting with a button that can be found at the end of the large stone castle wall.
The button is quite hard to see as it is hidden behind a stack of boxes. Once you activate the button, enter the hidden door and collect the rune.
How to Find the Redstone Mines Rune Location
Located inside the Redstone Mine, you will find the rune at the second location that you are tasked with freeing villagers.
In order to obtain the rune, you will need to push a button that is located on the left side of the room, behind a cluster of Redstone that is near the entrance to the next area.
This one is particularly tricky to find, so be sure to check the ground very carefully!
Once you push the button, a hidden door will appear nearby and you will find the rune inside.
How to Find the Desert Temple Rune Location
Follow the mission marker to the area in which you need to collect the Gold Key Golem to open the locked door.
Inside the area in which the key can be found, you will find a lever in the top right corner of the room. Pull the level and enter the hidden door.
How to Find the Fiery Forge Rune Location
Located near the start of the map, you will find the Fiery Forge rune by interacting with a lever that can be found inside the large mine, directly next to the Redstone Golem on ground at the beginning of the room.
Pulling the lever will activate a hidden door, head inside and collect the rune.
How to Find the Highblock Halls Rune Location
Found in the Highblock Halls marketplace area, you will find the rune towards the top right hand side of the open area. This can be found near a building that allows you to stand on top of its roof.
Once you have found the correct location, use the lever on the wall to open a hidden room.
Head inside and activate the rune.
How to Find the Obsidian Pinnacle Rune Location
The Obsidian Pinnacle rune can be found inside the library like area during the second half of the map. Once inside, follow the mission marker until you reach the small library.
Take out the mobs and make your way to the bookshelves that can be found at the back of the room. Interact with the book that is located towards the left side, which will then trigger a door to open.
Head inside and interact with the rune on the floor.
How to Get to the Secret Moo? Level
Once all the runes have been collected, press the button in side the Church again to reveal a hidden doorway that leads to a small room that contains 2 chests and a map. This map will unlock the secret level on the map as “???”.
