Diablo 2 Runewords

Diablo 2 is a very complex game with many gameplay features that can be both interesting and challenging. In this post, you will find out more about Diablo 2 Runewords. Like what are they and how to use d2 runewords. The whole Diablo 2 runeword system is complex, so you may find this post long, but we have written the basics at the beginning of the post. After that, you will see Runewords List with easy-to-use navigation.

Diablo 2 Rune Farming Guide

Diablo II has a rune system that grants bonuses and D2 runewords are the combinations of those runes that grant exceptional attributes. There are 78 runewords in Diablo 2. In general, you can describe the Runeword effect as a combination of the primal effect of the rune and several additional properties, which effectively turn the socketed item into a Unique Item, keeping the base attributes of the original item. Creating a D2 Runeword is not a complicated task but you require special knowledge to learn how to do it.

Diablo 2 Peace Runeword

Things to remember when creating a Runeword:

  • Item Quality: Normal quality equipment only (gray text) can be used to create Runewords. In this case, the item base type (Normal, Exceptional or Elite) can be any, as well as Low Quality, Superior or Ethereal item flags. You can’t make Runeword out of Magic, Unique or Set.
  • Correct item type: If Runeword is a weapon, then inserting it into a shield or helmet will not work. And be careful, pay attention to the type of weapon with which Runeword can work – for example, Chaos (Fal + Ohm + Um) Runeword can only be obtained on Claws, with Swords, Maces or any other type of weapon it will not work.
  • Number of sockets: There must be an identical number of sockets – if Runeword requires 3 sockets, then 4 or 6 socket things will not work.
  • Correct order: Runes must be inserted in the order in which they are written. For example, Leaf (Tir + Ral) Runeword – Tir rune should be inserted first, followed by Ral.
  • Ladder Only Runewords: Certain Runewords can only be found by Ladder characters. Ladders exist only for Battle.net play, and reset periodically.

Item Types for Runewods:
Body Armor: Any armor that is worn on your chest and not any type of other armor such as boots, helms, gloves, etc.
Helms: Any armor that is worn on the head, including helms, Barbarian Helms, Druid Pelts, and Circlets.
Shield: Any armor that can be used to block, including shields, Necromancer Shrunken Heads, and Paladin Shields.
Clubs: Club, Spiked Club, and Exceptional/Elite versions.
Hammers: War Hammer, Maul, Great Maul, and Exceptional/Elite versions. These will not work in mace recipes even though they are listed on the mace page.
Maces: Mace, Morning Star, Flail, and Exceptional/Elite versions. This does not include any other types of Maces. Make sure you read about Hammers above. They are not “maces” in the case of Runewords.
Melee Weapons: Most weapons that aren’t ranged such as a Sword or Hammer. A Bow or Crossbow is a ranged weapon and is not in this category. Sorceress Orbs are not considered Melee Weapons. Melee Weapons: Hand-to-Hand, Blunt, Combo Weapon, Polearm, Spear, Knife, Sword, Axe.
Missile Weapons: Bows and Crossbows.
Weapons: Melee Weapons, Missile Weapons, Orbs.
Scepters: Scepter, Grand Scepter, War Scepter, and Exceptional/Elite versions.
Staves: Mean Staves and not other items that are Staff class weapons like Wands.
