Runewords in Diablo 2 cover the different Rune combinations that can be socketed into equipment. Runewords can be formed by inserting Runes in a specific order inside certain types of equipment. The Item must be able to support the Runeword (see the list below for more information), and it needs to have the same amount of sockets as Runes are required.

Best Runewords in Diablo 2 are usually composed of high level runes. Rune words by categories, such as best armor rune words, best weapon rune words, as well as early game Rune words and Runewords by level.

See our Diablo 2 Builds page for guides for all characters including the best runes for all builds. Also check out Rune and Item Values for trading guidance.

Diablo 2 Runewords Rules

zod_rune_diablo_2_wiki_guide_50pxWhat are Runewords?

Diablo 2 Runewords are specific rune combinations that can be socketed into certain equipment. Not all Runewords work for all types of Equipment. There are certain "rules" that apply in order to create a Runewords. It is important to learn them (or at least be aware of these limitations) before creating Runewords to prevent wasting your hard-earned Runes because, for example, you slotted them in the wrong order or in the wrong piece of equipment.

zod_rune_diablo_2_wiki_guide_50pxWhy my Runes don't change into a Rune Word?

It may happen that you insert the Runes in the piece of equipment that you want, but for some reason the Rune word is not triggered. Why is that?

  • It is possible that you have slotted the Runes in an incorrect order. Rune order is vital for Runewords.
  • It is possible that you attempted to create a Rune word in the wrong piece of equipment. If you attempt to create a  Weapon-only Rune Word on a socketed armor, you won't create the Rune Word.
  • It is also possible that the piece of socketed equipment you are using doesn't have the EXACT amount of sockets the Rune Word requires.

 

 There are a few things to have in consideration when attempting to socket a Runewords into a piece of Equipment.

  • When you create Rune Word, you still receive all the magical bonuses that were already on each Rune you socketed.
  • The socketed item you are using must have the EXACT number of sockets as the Rune Word formula you are attempting to socket. 
  • Runewords only work in Socketed non-magical items. This rules out Set Items, Unique Items, Rare Items or Magic Items.
  • The Socketed item type MUST be the correct item type. If the formula requires an Axe, it won't work if you decide to use a Spear or a Sword.
  • The correct Runes for a formula must be used. If you by some chance, decide to replace a Rune or use another one because you lack the proper one, you will receive the bonuses of the equipped Runes but it won't become a Runewords
  • The Runes MUST be placed in the correct order to trigger the Rune Word. Doing it in an incorrect order will prevent the Rune Word to activate, and will only grant you the single Runes benefits.

      Wealth shows 2 runes - and is stated as being a 3 socket chest armor. In the Arreat Summit it's listed as a 3 socket Rune Word as well. Lem + Ko + Tir.
      Don't know if it will work as it's an Original Rune Word, rather than 1.10 or 1.11... also don't see why that would matter; but I never agreed with restricting rune words to Ladder Characters either. So hopefully this will be a help to someone, rather than just a random comment.

        Some of the pictures of runes don't match the rune word. Clicked on some of the linked words for the rune and it's not the same as the pic.

          if i have an iten with 3 socket spaces and i want to use a runeword that uses only 2 spaces did i still get the runework name ??????

            New players will have a hard time understanding which rune to put in first from this page. Having the rune order written in text would be wise.
