Creeper Woods Rune Location

Creeper Woods Rune Location

You need to get to the village area with 5 villagers in cages, during the "The Caravan - Free the Villagers" objective.

On the lower left part of the area, there are some blocks with a square hole in the middle. A bit north of the super suspicious structure, you can find a Switch to open it in the hole mentioned before and you'll be able to Travel through it.

Inside you can find the very first Rune! Hurrah!

Pumpkin Pastures Rune Location

During the "The Last Hearth - Find the Village" objective, you'll come across a tall castle wall with two big, burning buildings on top of it.

Go all the way to the end, heading east/northeast, to find the switch and secret entrance!

Soggy Swamp Rune Location

Soggy Swamp Rune Location

After you've defeated the Cauldron, you'll get the "Escape the Swamp - A Perilous Potion" objective and can find this switch just to the right of the Mission exit.

It's hidden behind some mushrooms and opens a door to the left of it. Be careful when you come back out, so you don't dash straight into the swamp like one of us did...

Cacti Canyon Rune Location

Cacti Canyon Rune Location

At the spot where you get ambushed, just before you reach the Blue Key, you can find a switch behind the palm tree and small wall section next to the water to the left.

Pushing it will open up an entrance behind the Blue Key, so go in there to get the Rune.

Redstone Mines Rune Location

Redstone Mines Rune Location

During this Mission, you have two "Left Behind - Free the Villagers" objectives, one for 3 villagers and one for 6. The Rune is hidden in the last room, with the 6 villagers.

From the gate heading towards the Mission exit, go north a bit to the tiny mine cart rail. The redstones behind it have the switch hidden among them.

Desert Temple Rune Location

Desert Temple Rune Location

You'll pass right by this Rune location during the "The Nameless - Find the Golden Key" objective.

The switch is hidden behind some plants in the room after the one the key was in. Push it and grab your Rune!

Fiery Forge Rune Location

Fiery Forge Rune Location

Right after you enter the Forge, the objective will change to "Machines of War - Find the Forge Cores" and you'll be by some stairs with a destroyed Redstone Golem lying in a picturesque stream of light.

At the foot of the stairs below the Golem, you can find the switch for the hidden entrance, which is just to the right of the switch.

Fiery Forge Mission Walkthrough

Highblock Halls Rune Location

Highblock Halls Rune Location

At some point, you get to an open courtyard with a market, a fountain and some other things. It's easy to find since it's the only part of the Mission with rain!

In the northern corner, if you go right by the statue of Archie on a horse, you can find the switch. Pushing it opens an entrance right next to it that leads you to the Rune you're after!

This in the last part of the "Crash the Party - Reach the Throne Room" objective, so if you reach "Destroy the Buffets" you've gone too far!

Highblock Halls Mission Walkthrough

Obsidian Pinnacle Rune Location

In the library you probably paused at because you could see that the map continued, you can press the big blue book in the bookcase with a red book sandwiched between two blue ones.

This room also holds two treasure chests, so it's definitely worth getting to!

Reward for Collecting All of the Runes

Unlock the Secret Cow Level

Once you've collected all the Runes, come back to the Church and activate the panel in the far back.

This will lead you to a room with two Chests and a map that unlocks the secret Cow level.
