A list of rune abilities that appear in Rune Factory 5.


The protagonist can gain Rune Abilities and Spells as random drops from defeating Monsters and as prizes in treasure chests.

Most spells can be upgraded. After expanding The Crystalabra twice, Lucas will begin offering upgrade services. The cost and materials required to upgrade a rune ability vary. See individual item pages for details.

Upgrading Magic Abilities

Magic abilities can be upgraded by 'gifting' them to Lucas after the Crystalabra has expanded twice. Only elemental/healing spells may be upgraded in this manner. Weapon skills and monster 'music' skills cannot be upgraded unless obtained randomly from a chest. The price for level upgrades is as follows:

1→2: 500G

2→3: 3000G

3→4: Sapphire

4→5: Platinum

5→6: Orichalcum

6→7: Crimson Fur
