If the player puts certain combinations of Runes in the correct order into an item with exactly that number of sockets and of the correct item type, the item's name will change into a "unique" name, displayed in gold, and the item will acquire extra powers, depending on the "rune word" that was used. The benefits of using a Rune Word is that you can make the Rune Word's magical bonuses apply to any type of item allowed with the proper number of sockets. You could, for example, use an Elite Socketed sword or an Exceptional Socketed sword, and you can also pick which type of sword is used. You can continue to find better Socketed weapons or armor and, with the proper Runes, continue to have this Rune Word bonus applied to better and better Socketed items as you find them. Rune Words are an advanced feature for experienced users.

Although several were available with the Lord of Destruction expansion pack, many others were added in future patches. Rune Words divide weapons into categories that may not be explicitly stated on an item. With weapons especially, it is easy to accidentally mistake one type of weapon for another. These include the exceptional and elite versions of the items as well. Although classified as "Mace Class weapons," Hammers are a separate category.
Like Hammers, Clubs are classified as maces but have their own category. Sign In.

Weapon Rune Words (Diablo II)
Rune Words are specific combinations of runes that grant specific socketed items several new magical properties. When a Rune Word is made, the item's name is changed to the Rune Word's name. It appears in gold text, like Unique items. Rune Words keep the original properties of the socketed item. They do not work on socketed unique, magic, or rare items even if they have the required number of sockets, meaning players can only make Rune Words from items which have black-colored names. When runes are not inserted into an item properly in correct order , the item will only gain bonuses from the inserted individual runes. Players must also have the right patch for Rune Words to work.
Runewords are a way in Diablo II to use a combination of runes in an item to give it exceptional attributes, beyond what the runes themselves accomplish. There are 78 runewords in total. Look at the rune list for information on how to get the right runes. For weapons you'll want to find the best type of weapon possible, since that's what the bonus damage is based on. Same with Armor if you are after Defense and shields for blocking percentage. If defense isn't important, look for an item that looks good, has low requirements, and for armor and shields, is not going to slow your running speed. Talk Contributions Create account Log in.
