While not required for the rune creation process, theElden Ring Golden ScarabThe talisman improves your rune transports as it increases the amount you receive from all sources by 20%. Obtaining this item can be difficult as it requires you to travel to Caelid (a very difficult region) and defeat the two Cleanrot Knight bosses in the Abandoned Cave. Its difficulty means you'll have to wait a while to try it, but it will make rune crafting much faster later on.

Elden Ring Runenfarm: Caelid Runenfarm

our firstalter RingThe rune farm point is in Caelid, but you can do it from the start. First, you should venture to the Third Church of Marika in the Limgrave region and head northeast across the water to find a portal in some bushes. Activating the portal teleports you to Greyoll's dragon cart in northeast Caelid.
Activate the lost mercy next to you and outside there will be a big boss at the bottom of a staircase. Avoid them and head down the hill towards the big bridge and another Lost Grace location. Now it's time for the rune farm because between the two Lost Graces you just activated there are a lot of small enemies that can be killed for between 600 and 1000 runes depending on if you have the gold scarab.
These enemies can hit hard, but if you stay on your horse and swing over them as you charge by, you'll want to make sure you kill them quickly and don't die yourself. There should be a dozen or more in the area for you to kill, and once they're dead head back to Lost Grace to reset them and repeat the process. Over the course of an hour, this should net you hundreds of thousands of runes, allowing you to level up many levels sooner than usual. Keep in mind that even though you are stronger in terms of stats, you still want to upgrade all the weapons you need to consistently take on tougher enemies.

The secondalter RingThe location of the rune farm is the easiest in the game and is at the beginning of the Liurnia region. After exiting Stormveil Castle (or sooner if you take the hidden back passage), head east up the road and reach the Liurnia Highway North Lost Grace. Opposite this area is a battlefield where a bunch of ghost soldiers and a giant are engaged in an eternal war.
For this rune farm, all you have to do is move forward to pull the trigger to make them all spawn, then just step back as they kill each other and earn you a few thousand runes. You won't actually be playing the game for this one, so you can do something in the background while you come back intermittently to regenerate enemies. It also won't net you as much as the other grow locations, but it's worth it if you can do something else while you wait.

Elden Ring Rune Farm: Bird Farm Moghwyn Palace

The location with the most rune farms in the game is actually an endgame area, but you can access it much earlier by following Sweep's questline to completion. This particular agricultural site was namedalter RingBird farm through the community as you have to repeatedly kill a specific crow.
First, talk to Varre when you enter the open world, as he will be right in front of you. After that, you'll need to track him down to his new location in Liurnia, but first you'll need to defeat Godrick in Stormveil and then talk to the tracker in Roundtable Hold.
Once that's done, head towards the Rose Church south of Raya Lucaria Academy in Liurnia and you'll find Varre again. Talk to him and select the "They didn't seem right" dialogue option. He'll give you some Festering Bloody Fingers to use to ambush three players and when that's done go back and he'll ask you to join his order. Say yes and get the Lord of Blood's favor item for the next step.
The next step is to find a girl to use your new item. The easiest way to do this is to go to a place called the Four Belfrieds in western Liurnia, which is on top of a hill. Just run to the top in the torrent, avoiding enemies along the way, then activate Lost Grace at the top. There will also be a chest in the top church tower with an Imbued Stone Sword Key, and you must use it to activate the second highest church tower's teleporter. Both Sweep and the Four Steeples are marked on the map above.
This will take you back to the area you started the game in and give you the chance to get revenge on the Grafted Scion boss. Defeat them, cross the bridge and go up the stairs to get Maiden's Blood from a nearby corpse. You can then return to Varre in the Church of the Roses and get a Pureblood Knight's Medal by speaking to him a few times. This allows you to teleport directly to Moghwyn's Palace.

From here, head up and activate Lost Grace before turning and jumping down. Summon Torrent and run around the area, making sure to completely avoid all enemies. This will take you to Palace Approach Ledge-Road Lost Grace where thealter RingBird farm will happen. Look over the edge of the nearby cliff and you'll see a large enemy crow. Firing a ranged weapon will attack the enemy and cause them to fall off a cliff if they try to reach you, earning you around 13,000 runes. Reset to Lost Grace and repeat the process to earn millions of runes per hour, making this the most valuable farm site in the game.
