Runes of Absorption are runes that provide a physical damage reduction bonus. These runes are only usable by primary warriors.

  • A Warrior Rune of Minor Absorption reduces physical damage by 1.
  • A Warrior Rune of Major Absorption reduces physical damage by 2.
  • A Warrior Rune of Superior Absorption reduces physical damage by 3.

The damage reduction is non-stacking and is applied to every source of damage, regardless of which piece of armor it hits.


The Major and Superior versions of this Rune do not give a health penalty, unlike most other runes.
