Runic Arts in Salt and Sacrifice are offensive or defensive abilities that some weapons possess. They offer variety to Builds, and they can be categorized into Forbidden Glyphs or Divine Glyphs. Runic Arts can't be cast for free, as they require a resource, be it Rage or Focus Points, and have a cooldown. 

There is no Class restriction in order to use them, as Runic Arts are embedded in some Weapons, but they require certain knowledge in Banereader or Glyphreader to be used.  You’ll first need to unlock its corresponding Skill Tree Node. There are two Runic Art branches, one for Divine Glyphs and one for Forbidden Glyphs. Both of them can be found on the lower middle part of the Skill Tree.

While hovering over a Runic Art you’ll be able to check the type of Glyphs it possesses and its Class. If you don’t meet the requirements you won’t be able to use that Runic Art, but it won’t affect the Stats of the Weapon in any other way.

It is highly recommend that you unlock both branches to their Max level so you can try all the different Runic Arts and discover which ones fit best with your playstyle, in many cases these are more important than the stats of the weapon itself.

Forbidden Glyphs or Divine Glyphs?

There are two types of Runic Arts, Forbidden Glyphs and Divine Glyphs. The only difference between them is the Skill players need to spend Black Greystones on, in order to cast them. Divine Glyphs require one of the five levels of Glyphreader to be used, while Forbidden Glyphs require one of the five levels of Banereader instead. There are, however, a small number of Runic Arts that can be either of the two types, depending on the Weapon they have been found.

Can I lose or overwrite a Runic Art?

As previously mentioned, Runic Arts are embedded in determined Weapons, so you don't actually learn them. As long as you are wielding the Weapon with the desired Runic Art, you will always have it. The moment you change the equipped Weapon, you won't be able to use that Runic Art, but depending on the newly equipped one, may be able to use a different one.

      Wow, they took perfectly good game and made it perfectly not good. I appreciate what they're trying to do here but its pretty disappointing to have magic completely removed from the game. Gotta make sure you read before you buy I guess.
