Activating a Rune
First approach the rune and press your gather button. (Default key: N or spacebar)
This will cause an arrow key sequence to appear on the screen. Enter the sequence correctly with your arrow keys within 10 seconds.
Note: Entering them incorrectly will require you to wait a few seconds before trying again.
An animation will play to indicate successful activation of the rune.
