We all know there were cool gears in all Zelda games. But in BotW we had Sheikah slate with runes instead. However I think it will be reset at the beginning of the game(otherwise Link would be overpowered).
So what runes would you like to add/delete?
Instead of stasis there should be a clock rune which allows us to alter time (like in Prince of Persia)
Instead of Magnesis rune, which can pick up only metals a zonai hand rune would be great.
The cryonis rune must be removed and Link must be able to swim like a pro.

delte all da ruins an ad da hukshoot
Honestly i was heartbroken there was no hookshot in BOTW, it would've fit really nicely into the game, hell even just adding a rope n arrow to the game would've worked well for ascending cliffs.

Realistically i'd like to see a bitter implementation of Cryonisis it acted like the sand wand in ST did and not in a good way, it didn't help with travel unless you divebombed into a large patch of water, which more often than not it ended up being faster to traverse by zora suit and stam dishes (how link eats in water i don't know)

An earthshaping ability would be kinda cool to create platforms of dirt to temporarily exist, i can imagine in an underground ruin that'd work quite nicely for holding ceilings up as link passes through.

Magnesis was actually really useful, i found myself dropping crates on moblins more than anything ^^.

Stasis and Camera rune could be merged for easier use of stasis, there really wasn't any need for it to be 3rd person stasising at all.

I'd like a clockwork guardian as a Summon Rune, in theory it could work if they based it off Wolf Link's amiibo summon and it'd work much the same, helping in combat and the like, give it some upgrades such as collecting things and away we go.

A hint rune for things like Koroks (i've no doubt they'll exist in BOTW2) it'd be nice to have something let you know a Korok is nearby.

Compass rune, remove that goddamn shiekah sensor and gives us a directional compass that is quiet

Adding a hookshot rune would be nice.

Sword, spear, bow and club runes would be good too so **** won't break!
including Bow runes would be a very logical move. Say even if weapons broke due impact, Bows made up of red/elm breaking with usage is absurd.

I want a push-pull mechanic like Half Life 2's gravity gun, Would lead to so much hilarious experimentation.

A cool rune would be one to electrify surfaces. I think that could add some possibilities to combat and puzzles as well as some environmental interactions in the overworld.
I really like this idea. Adding new methods of interacting with things environmentally would certainly add to the capabilities of BotW's design. I'd be happy if they added this or something like it.

I think that a tune of minor healing would be nice when your in tight situations, but I guess it’s not a thing because then it would kinda defeat the purpose of hearty foods and actual gameplay. But another nice thing would be a rune to perhaps mend your almost broken weapons?

You have Mipha's heal too for that purpose.

Or how about a rune that gives you the limited powers of a guardian? Like the laser? Of course it should only be limited to something of two shots or so.

EDIT: I’ve thought of another one. Not sure how it would work, but i would want something related to the Iron Boots item from OOT and TP. I just want some underwater exploration.
