Memory Rune

  • The first rune on the board is called Memory Rune.
  • This rune grows in power based on the number of Runes you collected in January, and how many times you fired your Jade Laser during the January event.
  • For each Rune you collected in January, your Memory Rune will gain +10% All Damage.
  • For each time you used your Jade Beetle laser, your Memory Rune will gain +5% to Gold dropped.
  • If you are just beginning, or if you skipped playing in January, your Memory Rune will be set at 10% damage, 5% gold.

The Bonus Rune

As with many months now, the bonus rune you can stockpile after filling the board is Endless Rush.

February Special Runes

Horizontal Boost

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

Vertical Boost

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

Hidden Power

  • This rune increases overall damage by a % for each Ability you have active (Swarm, Smokescreen, etc).
  • Even Collossal Crab adds a bonus for the few seconds that it is "active".
  • The bonuses are additive, so if one ability increases by 45% then two will increase by 90%.
  • This bonus itself is a new multiplier so it is pretty good.

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.

Totals

Ignoring the Memory Rune (since it is different for everyone), getting a full rune board this month should be:
  • 480% Amethyst
  • 630% Emerald
  • 525% Garnet
  • 180% All Dmg
  • 255% Gold
  • +300% Jade Laser Damage
  • +15 seconds to Jade Laser blast
  • 30 minutes off Jade Laser Cooldown
  • Double Butterfly Pearls
  • +45% dmg per active ability
  • +40% Gem Bonus (equivalent of 4 levels of Gem Spec in the Gene Lab)
  • Start Tournaments at 30% of Max Distance
  • +60% damage while in Tournaments
