  1. i almost always play cakewars when i get on mineplex, and ive seen people talk about buying runes, but to be honest i just find it a waste of emeralds and ive only ever used it once just out of curiosity. so do you guys seriously use runes?

  2. Well when you spend 50 emeralds on full diamond and you don't wanna lose it when you die, a rune can save you emeralds. I think they are very useful!

  3. well to be honest i dont ever really use full diamond, i always just go for full iron and a diamond sword so that if i do end up dying i wont have lost that many resources

  4. Yes I definitely use runes if the game is a longer one and teams are starting to stack. It surprises me that you'v never bought diamond armor, it's pretty much an essential especially if you make it to cake rot. I use runes quite frequently actually. Good question!

  5. My goal is to rush and finish the game before any other team has the chance to buy diamond armor. For most of the game, I'm going from base to base in iron armor with just enough to eat their cake and eliminate them, rather than getting mid or any of the emerald generators. If my cake gets eaten or the game goes until cake rot, that's when I'll buy diamond armor, but runes of holding wouldn't work at that point anyway.

    Tl;Dr: Not for my playstyle, but it's a must for people that get stacked before going to other bases.

  6. Runes used to be great, but for me they don’t seem to work anymore. If I get chucked into the void and hold it, sometimes my invent won’t stay.

  9. Hey! I find the rune of holding to be very useful if I'm rushing a base, and have full diamond armor or other valuable items. I don't use it every game though, sometimes I don't even try to get full armor and rush without it, lol

  11. I guess it depends on the game, sometimes I use them, sometimes I don’t.
    For quicker games where I don’t bother purchasing diamond armor, there isn’t really much of a point in purchasing them. Why save up for something so expensive when a full set of iron armor is cheaper.
    But, usually if there’s another team that’s evenly skilled, we’ll end up going to cake rot. Usually that means I’ll have purchased a full set of diamond armor a little before cake rot. I’ll definitely have purchased a rune as well, I wouldn’t want to lose all of that stuff that far into the game.
    Interesting thread!

  12. I usually rush so quick I don’t need a rune of holding, 80% of games are all Pe noobs

  13. Hey,

    I actually use the Runes a lot. If the games go on for awhile and I have full or an almost full set of diamond armour, I feel like it's essential to get this Rune to make sure I didn't waste 50+ Emeralds, and for the price of 20 that's a pretty good deal. It's surprising to me that you don't buy diamond armour, because that's usually what I get as soon as possible in any game. However, everyone has their play style.

  14. Hey!
    I always am using runes when the games last longer and the other teams have diamond armour. I really never wanna take a chance at losing all my diamond armour that costs 60 emeralds when I can just save it with a rune of holding for 20 emeralds instead of buying it all again for another 60. I think that if you see the game lasting awhile and need you're stuff in the event that you die and you might lose, it defiantly is something to consider buying.

  15. Leather rusher here. I don't buy it because I don't carry much on me. A pick and an axe and a few endstone is enough to get a cake if successful. The price is too high for me even when I'm full diamond in end game. I just try to pearl a lot and fight less aggressively. If my team gives me one, or if I find one in the chests, of course I'd use it for a push.

  16. Hello there!

    Most of the time I use rune of holding because I forget about it too. But yes, it’s very useful when I have full diamond.

  17. G'day!

    When I play on Java I definitely do use the Rune of Holding as it is cheaper to purchase every time you die than a whole set of Diamond gear + any other equipment you had/need.

    I would love to also use it on Bedrock but as of right now there is a bug (it has been reported) that doesn't keep my inventory upon death, even if I do have Rune of Holding. But also a lot of my Cake Wars' games go pretty quick to the point where I don't even have enough time to get emerald generators and then save up for the rune.

    Every game has its own unique outcome depending on how many players, which map is played, etc. I don't go into a game thinking if I need to get the rune of not, it's more or less an opportunity that presents itself when need be.

    Cheers,
    Danny.

    I do play bedrock and it keeps it for me. I have not encountered the bug
