Diablo 2 Runes List

Diablo II has a specific system that can make your character even more powerful. In this post, you will find the Diablo 2 Runes list and tips about using them.

Runes are a special type of items that can be inserted into equipment. They have various bonuses, and when inserted into an item in the correct sequence create a Runeword. They are also used to craft various recipes in the Horadric Cube. It is not an easy task to farm runes so we have a guide that can help you, read Diablo 2 Rune Farming guide.

Diablo 2 Runes

Runes have their own gradation, the so-called tiers. There are 33 of them, as well as the number of runes – starting from the 1st tier El and ending with 33rd Zod. All runes can be upgraded one tier higher thanks to the recipe in the Horadric Cube. Runes before Thul are improved on the principle of 3 runes of one tier, as a result, a rune with a tier higher. For Amn runes and above, in addition to runes, you must have a special Gem for the upgrade. All the characteristics of the runes, as well as the upgrade recipe, are listed below.
