Why Should You Mint Runi?

Judging from its low total supply, Runi is designed to be rare and as such, a must-have for Splinterlands game players. While Runi can be traded in the secondary market, it also has vital use cases in the Splinterlands game. The capacities associated with Runi make it a powerful staple in any gamer's deck.

Below are three reasons you should mint and own a preferred quantity of the Runi NFT.


Firstly, Runi becomes playable in battle as a maximum-level Legendary Neutral card, when you connect your Ethereum (ETH) wallet to the gaming Splinterlands environment.

Secondly, Runi can be summoned to fight in quests and battles just like every other card in the play-to-earn game. With the generative art NFT, Runi, players can climb the leagues and leaderboards in the game, win prizes in tournaments, as well as help their guilds brawl their way to fame and fortune.

Thirdly, Runi brings a completely new ability to the Splinterlands game which is the capacity for it to resurrect and continue in battles even at zero health. According to the team;

Upon reaching zero health, the Runi will resurrect themselves and return to the fight with 1 Health! Combined with its abilities of Opportunity (which targets the enemy with the lowest health), True Strike (it will never miss), and Reflection Shield (making it immune to indirect damage), the Runi will be a powerful staple in your deck.source
