September Special Runes

Horizontal Boost

This rune doubles all of the normal runes that share the same row. For this month, that means doubling:
  • 1 Amethyst I
  • 2 Emerald I
  • 1 Garnet II
  • 2 Gold I
  • 1 Gold II
  • 1 Trinity III

Vertical Boost

This rune doubles all of the normal runes that share the same column. For this month, that means doubling:
  • 1 Amethyst III
  • 1 Emerald I
  • 1 Garnet I
  • 1 Gold I
  • 1 Gold II
  • 1 Trinity I
  • 1 Trinity III

Gem Power

  • This rune increases "gem bonus" by 20%.
  • It is not a multiplier of overall gem bonus as calculated by your Gene Tree and Gene Lab bonuses to Gem Damage %.
  • If you recall, the "base" gem bonus without any Genes or Gene Lab is 10% per gem.
  • If this Gem Power Rune increases you by 20%, then it only adds 20% of that base 10%, or 2% overall to the per-gem bonus.
  • Think of it as getting two free levels of Gem Specialization in the Gene Lab.

Time Sphere

  • This rune says it adds 25% to your ability timers - 50% total if you get both of them.
  • Abilitiy timers as in Smokescreen, Shadow Swarm, Queen Frenzy, etc.
  • In true Crab War fashion, they don't mean your modified ability timers, they mean the default ones - 30 seconds.
  • So this +50% only adds 15 seconds.
  • For Leech that's awesome because there is no other way to raise it - but for a 45+ minute Shadow Swarm, +15 seconds is spitting in the ocean.

Totals

  • 555% Amethyst
  • 510% Emerald
  • 525% Garnet
  • 235% All Dmg
