Introduction

Runes by themselves already give some amazing Stats on the 4 item slots that can have Sockets (Weapons, Shields, Helmets, and Body Armors). Runewords go one step further, by adding additional Stats to items, if Runes are socketed inside them in a specific order. This creates some incredible items, increasing the power of your Character immensely. Every end game build in Diablo II: Resurrected uses at least 1 Runeword! In this guide, we not only list every Runeword that is available, we also recommend the best Base Items to put them into.


Mechanics

  • Runes must be placed in a specific Base Item type with the EXACT amount of Sockets to create a Runeword, including Ethereal and Superior Items.
  • In addition to the regular Stats from the Runes, a Runeword will create a set of Affixes. Some of these Affixes have fixed values, while others can have specific ranges.
  • Runewords can't be created inside of Magic, Rare, Set, or Unique Items!

Summary

  • Placing Runes in a specific order and Base Item creates a powerful item with added Affixes, in addition to the Runes' Stats.
  • Can't be created in Magic, Rare, Set or Unique Items!
  • Not every Runeword is worth creating. Many examples have equally more powerful, or cheaper alternatives that will save your Rune economy.
  • Runewords with the "Indestructible" or "Repairs after x seconds" Affixes should always be created in an Ethereal Item. Equally, Items that are created for your Mercenary should always be Ethereal as they don't use up Durability!
  • Basically every Character build uses Runewords as "Best in Slot"-Items.
