- This article is about the rune trader service. For the NPC in the guild hall, see Rune Trader (guild hall). For other NPCs named "Rune Trader", see Rune Trader (NPC).
Rune traders are NPCs that sell runes and insignias. Unlike merchants, prices and availability are based on supply and demand; these traders can run out of stock or refuse to purchase any particular item.
