Exploring the world of Clover Retribution will lead you to a myriad of interesting locations and quests. One of the many things you’ll encounter is the Aetherstone Raid somewhere in the lake area of the game. Unfortunately, the raid doesn’t really open up by itself, it requires a bit of work beforehand.

Now, if you’re interested in finding out more the Aetherstone Raid, read further into the guide for everything you’ll need to know about it – from locations, loot, how-to(s) and more.

Aetherstone Guide & Rune Pillar Locations

As mentioned before, there’s quite a couple pre-requisites that you’ll need to do before actually going to the raid itself. That said, here are all the steps that you must follow. Let’s jump right into it!

How To Get All Runes

First up, before you’re able to enter the Aetherstone Raid, you’ll have to collect a total of 4 Runes from the event bosses, which are the Bandit Lord and Warlord.

  • Rune of Endless Challenge
  • Rune of Colossal Wrath
  • Rune of Raging Tempest
  • Rune of Shattered Earth

You can only get the runes from them exclusively, and they have a chance of randomly dropping all of the runes.

This basically means that if you’re unlucky, it’s possible to get 5 Runes of Endless Challenge in a row. With that said, you can probably complete the runes within 4 hours or less.

Now, for the location/s of the event bosses. They’re not far from the Unnamed Village. You’ll be able to spot the Warlord somewhere in the grasses around the Bandit Camp.

After taking out the Warlord, you can then make your way to the Bandit Camp itself, and you can spot the Bandit Lord chilling in the middle.

Rune Pillar Locations

Once you’ve gathered the necessary items, your next step is to activate four rune pillars scattered across the map using the runes you picked up from the event bosses.

I suggest collecting all 4 of the runes first, before making your way to the rune pillars. It’s so that you don’t end up mixing up the locations. This is because you’ll have to put the right rune in the corresponding rune pillar.

Now, here’s the location for all the rune pillars. Basically, they’re located on all 4 corners of the current map. But here’s a map image, as well as directions and instructions to help you out better.

  • Endless Challenge  Near the Ogre Boss and the entrance to the Clover Capital.
  • Colossal Wrath – Located across the Aetherstone Raid Pond.
  • Raging Tempest – Situated below the Timeston town, next to a bridge.
  • Shattered Earth – Found in the mountainous regions to the left of the Demon Skull Cave.

How To Start Aethertone Raid

Once you’ve gathered the necessary items, your next step is to activate four rune pillars scattered across the map using the runes you picked up from the event bosses.

This task can be made easier by teaming up with friends or other players. Once all the pillars are activated, you can proceed to locate the Aetherstone Raid Boss.

To find the location of the Aetherstone Raid, start from the church in the Unnamed Village and take a look around. You’ll notice a ring situated in the middle of a lake, as shown in the image below.

This ring functions as a portal that will transport you to the Aetherstone Isle Raid. As of now, it’s the only raid available in the game, but it’s certainly worth undertaking.

Simply interact with the portal and it’ll transport you the Aetherstone Golem’s location, in an enclosed arena-like area.

Completing this raid promises generous rewards, including unique items such as the Aetherstone Halberd, Aetherstone Pauldrons, and the exceedingly rare Aetherblade, obtainable only from the Corrupted version of the Aetherstone Golem.

Moreover, you’ll also earn a substantial amount of gold, experience points (EXP), and mastery points – more than what you’d typically gain from defeating all other bosses combined.
