Dishonored Runes Locations Guide

Welcome to the Dishonored Runes locations guide that helps you find the Runes locations for the Xbox 360, PS3 & PC action-adventure stealth game.

The Outsider’s power is channeled through artifacts carved from whale bones, called Runes. Collecting Runes allows you to spend them on accessing new powers. Choose your powers wisely, as Runes are a rare resource.

    The Rune locations are shown in the order the player can chronologically encounter them.

    How to find missing Rune Locations?

    Answer: The Heart is a supernatural item that Corvo carries with him, that he channels psychic abilities from; which he hears as secrets pulled from the minds of others’ consciousness and such mystical senses.

    When equipped — quick select it by pressing Down on the 4-Point Directional Pad of your controller / via the Quick-Access Wheel — The Heart beats faster when Corvo faces his objectives or runes. It works as an early detection system of sorts. So as you walk into new areas or rooms, select The Heart to find out if there’s a Rune nearby.

    But be warned, there may be a downside to using The Heart.

      healing and celerity and feather arent powers-i’ve got dishonored .i know that celerity would be replaced with blood thirst and that healing would be replaced with vitality(or any other combination),but thats all.feather doesnt exist.or celerity.or healing.

    • I appreciate this very much @valkyrie979:disqus . With credit to you, I’ve corrected the list of supernatural abilities the runes grant Corvo. 🙂
      The info came from the game’s own manual, so I must’ve mixed them in with standard options.
