Main article: Rune Weapons
In the Hidden Mines, you will be able to trade Qualis Gems for Strange Rune weapons from Hamidaron. You can unlock upgrades for the Rune weapons by giving the Al-Aziz Hermit some wine, then talking to him again without wine in your inventory to access the upgrade menu. Each upgrade requires one strange rune weapon and one Qualis Gem.
These weapons have the highest damage in the game, but come at a great cost.
You might get stuck inside the location, this means your Tab button won't allow you to leave the place, to leave walk to the edge of the map and use F to leave. As the zone is big, the quickest way to quit it is to run between Hamidaron and the barrel on his right. This way, the player will reach the zone limits within a couple of steps.
