Frogster Reveals the Secrets of Runes of Magic's Arcane Transmutor

Item Upgrades and Magical Combinations are ready for Players to Discover

Frogster America today announced details surrounding a key tool in the game Runes of Magic, the Arcane Transmutor. There are many ways to upgrade Armor and Weapons in Runes of Magic (, but most of then require the aid of the Arcane Transmutor, a powerful and mysterious artifact.

Only basic recipes have been given to the players so far, but upgrading those recipes is now possible: for instance, with the aid of power stones, adventurers can extract attributes from magical items, which are then stored in mana stones. Cleverly combined, these mana stones can turn into increasingly powerful mana stones, which in turn are used to refine and improve weapons or armor, thus making them especially useful tools in the everlasting battle against the enemies of Taborea.

Also, runes important for improving equipment, can be transmuted in several ways. Five identical runes of the same rank can form a higher tiered and more powerful version of that same rune. Players are encouraged to experiment combining different runes and attributes to create their ideal rune.

While the possible combinations are countless, using the Arcane Transmutor does cost Transmutor Charges, which players have to accrue in order to benefit from the Transmutor. Phirius Tokens, a reward from daily quests, can be traded in for charges, while players that want to upgrade their items faster can purchase charges in the item shop.

However, the Arcane Transmutor will not freely reveal all of its secrets. But one thing is clear, it is a lot more powerful than it was thought to be. It is now up to adventurers to discover its inner workings.

Runes of Magic went into the open beta in December with English and German versions, and the company revealed that over 300,000 players had already entered the world. All interested players can now download the game for free at
