- "A mysterious rune. Its aura matches those of the planeshifting Hive who periodically appear on the Dreadnaught.."
- — Item description
An Agonarch Rune is received as one kills Hive Majors on the Dreadnaught. It is useless unless the Taken that rotate daily around the Hull Breach and the Mausoleum are killed. It can be charged once per day. Once done it is replaced by a Charged Agonarch Rune, which can be inserted into a terminal in The Founts. When the time is used the player is faced with a boss fight with lots of enemies. When the boss is defeated a chest will spawn which can drop legendary engrams and runes of different tiers. It also drops moldering shards
A Rune can be aquired, or charged, by killing any of the following Taken Majors
