Tribes of Midgard's Golden Egg rune has become something of a fascination for the new game's burgeoning community. Its use isn't immediately apparent, and its rarity makes it hard for large numbers of players to experiment with it in pursuit of greater knowledge. Here's what we know about the Golden Egg rune so far.

Tribes of Midgard Golden Egg: What Does it Do?

The Golden Egg appears to be a rune like any other in Tribes of Midgard insofar as it can appear as a drop from normal enemies slain by the player. It's among the rarest runes in the game, but it's unclear why that's the case, as its actual purpose is mysterious. All we know for sure is that it can be sold for 200 Souls.

One commenter on the Tribes of Midgard subreddit said a golden spawn of Roosters of Ragnarok appeared while they had the rune equipped, and that killing the Roosters dropped Event Fragments, but that has yet to be confirmed by other users.

In terms of how to get a Golden Egg rune for yourself, commenters have reported picking one up from killing normal enemies and receiving one in exchange for Golden Horns offered at the Golden Altar in the village. Beyond that, we're in the dark — for now. It's only a matter of time before the community figures out what this rune is good for.
