How to get and use Runes
Runes allow you to improve your character outside a regular game of League of Legends. There are four types, Marks, Seals, Glyphs and Quints.
Marks tend to boost offensive categories, Seals are defense-focused, Glyphs favor magic, while Quints are good all-rounders and are the best type of Rune (although are far rarer than the others, with only 3 allowed at maximum, compared to 9 for the rest).
You need to first buy Runes from the store, then you can activate them via your Profile page, and the Rune tab.
