For other uses, see Runes (disambiguation).

In Dragon Age: Inquisition, runes can be applied to weapons that possess a rune slot to improve the effectiveness of the weapon. Runes cannot be applied to armor.

Runes can be applied to weapons at the Modify Weapon table in Haven or Skyhold's Undercroft.

Once applied, a rune cannot be removed, only replaced.

Runes can be found or crafted by the Inquisitor once the schematic has been found. Runes can also be found in the world, purchased from a merchant or rewarded for completing quests or War table operations.
