How to Get Radahn Great Rune Elden Ring

To be able to get Radahn’s Great Rune, you will first need to, naturally, defeat Starscourge Radahn in battle. He can be found in a portal in Redmane Castle, in the Caelid region. If he isn’t spawning, we recommend you read our guide on how to overcome this issue. In any case, once you beat him, he will drop Radahn’s Great Rune, as well as Remembrance of the Starscourge. You can give this Remembrance item to Enia in the Roundtable Hold to get either the Starscourge Greatsword (a Colossal Greatsword with Str D, Dex D, and Int E scaling, which requires Str 38, Dex 12, and Int 15. It provides the Starcaller Cry skill), or the Lion Greatbow (a Greatbow with Str D and Dex D scaling, which requires Str 22 and Dex 18. Wielding it will give you the Radahn’s Rain skill).
