Nurtured by the gentle sunlight, the Sunbeam Rune endows its bearer with a permanent sense of warm and healing guidance. It restores constantly the health of the person attached with it, no matter whether he participates in battle or perambulates the world. The power of the Sunbeam Rune is unique so far. Only a few other runes have a small regneration available as a side effect.
Although the rune is available in all games, it happens to be still an insiders' tip for most players. A constant automatic healing process relieves the character from being healed several times during dungeon crawlings. The heal delta in the first Suikoden game is outstanding, as it affects the whole party with each step they take. Because of that, they will most certainly enter every combat with almost full health. This effect was, however, nerved in later appearances, letting the rune concentrate only on its bearer with a higher amount of regeneration in battle. Suikoden 4 and Tactics rely on a percentaged cure in battle, based on the maximum health of the character, why the runes efficiency remains constant throughout the whole game. - Celes
