Runes are functions that can be added to the Sheikah Slate in Breath of the Wild.

Location and Uses

Runes are special objects controlled by the Sheikah Slate that can affect the world around Link. Runes are primarily obtained from the Shrines of Trials scattered across Hyrule. To obtain a Rune, Link must insert the Sheikah Slate into a pedestal to extract them.[1] Upon extraction, Link can access that Rune's abilities by pressing the L Button and selecting the Rune.
