Great Hawk Rune





In the shape of a proud hawk's head this rune sports on the hands of skilled bow users. First introduced in Suikoden II the Great Hawk Rune fits perfectly for elves and nature loving fighters. The hawk has to be fast in order to pave the way for its followers.

Give the Great Hawk Rune to fast bow-users and they will inflict half of their normal damage to all enemies nearby. For large groups of foes this means multiple overall damage. Concerning Suikoden II and III there is no drawback from using this rune either. In every game it paricipates, there are characters bringing it right into the battle. Watch out for Ayda, Roland, Urda, Isato, Flare and Frederica joining your entourage with Hawk Runes. Aside from that, it is a regular stockpile in some shops, hardly to miss. - Celes
