The relative strengths of the True Runes is dependent entirely upon context: some scenarios favor some runes while they perform badly in others, method of usage also comes into play which is determined by the intelligence and cunning of the bearer.
For example if the bearers of the True Fire and Sovereign Rune lined up for battle then the True Fire Rune would be totally ineffective at direct attacks against the Sovereign Rune bearer due to the latter's magic block effect; however we do not know if the Sovereign Rune has offensive abilities so it may come down to physical combat between the bearers.
Thus a more cunning bearer of the True Fire Rune may not attack the Sovereign bearer directly but create fires that impede his progress and wear him down before the physical battle to come.
This may be used to come to the conclusion that they are of equal strengths but it does depend on situation as if we introduce a third True Rune into the mix it results in one sided battles:
The Gate Rune seems to have weaker direct offensive powers than the True Fire Rune so its primary attack would have to be through the monsters it summons; however the True Fire is an area attack rune of high power so it could destroy any opposition summoned fairly easily.
However with a bit of foresight the Gate Rune could defeat the bearer of the Sovereign Rune because it has an indirect attack and would overwhelm him with force of numbers.
You cannot say that the True Fire Rune is stronger than the Rune of the Gate which is stronger than the Sovereign Rune, so by default the True Fire must be stronger than the Sovereign Rune as we know that isn't the case.
Without further details being disclosed it should be assumed that all True Runes are equal in power levels; but that does not mean that all battles between bearers will result in a stalemate, that depends more on the situation, the runes and the bearers involved; any individual results thus obtained could not be used to convey a hierarchy in any place.
However the first post suggests this is a versus topic about two specific runes, one of which we have next to no details about in its true form. As a result no-one can give you a coherent answer even if that sort of topic was allowed on these forums. But I will leave this topic open for people to discuss the more general case.
