Spending Runestones[edit | edit source]

* Calculated as (Runestone amount) divided by (Cost), these bundles give the highest amount of Runestones per money spent. It is recommended to buy these instead of a larger bundle at once.

** Likewise, these bundles give the lowest amount of Runestones per money spent. It is not recommended to buy these rather than stacks of smaller bundles.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • According to Blizzard Entertainment, Runestones allow them to offer additional smaller-scale products, such as individual Battlegrounds hero skins or emotes.[1]
  • The Runestone bundle sizes are based on popular pricing breakpoints within the shop.
  • In many currencies, the pricings between Runestone bundles aren't equal. This means that there is a certain bundle that gives the most runes per money spent.
    • In USD and EUR, it is cheaper to buy multiple bundles of 500 Runestones instead of a larger bundle, as you will save 1 cent for each purchase made.
    • In GBP, it is already a full £1 cheaper to buy two 500 Runestone bundles instead of one 1000 Runestone bundle. Likewise, buying sixteen 500 Runestone bundles costs £63.84, a whole £6.15 cheaper than buying the 8000 Runestone bundle.
