A mysterious rune. Its aura matches those of the planetshifting Hive who periodically appear on the Dreadnaught.
― In-game description

Agonarch Rune is a consumable that is charged by taking out 7 different hidden Taken threats on the Dreadnaught.

Throughout the Dreadnaught, named Taken can be found from triggering a floating spark of dark energy. Killing one of these enemies will grant a charge to the rune. If the player doesn't have a rune there is a chance one will be dropped for them. One rune charge may be gained per day, so it will take at least 7 days to fully charge the rune.

Once the rune is charged, it may be presented to a console in The Founts. Doing this will summon a large number of Taken across several waves, culminating in an Ultra boss, Dumuzod. After all the enemies are defeated, a loot chest will appear, which may be opened using the rune for rewards and a Calcified Fragment.
