List of Aura Runewords

LIST OF AURA RUNEWORDS

Use a combination of one or more of these runewords to give your character Paladin-only passive auras

These runewords grant a passive aura, normally only available when playing as a Paladin. These auras can be divided into two categories offensive auras and defensive auras. There are a few builds (Auradin) centered around auras, most notably the Holy Fire Auradin (using the Dragon armor and shield, and Hand of Justice weapon runewords) and the Tesladin (using the Dream helm and shield runeword)

It is very common to equip your Act 1 or 2 Mercenary, with an aura granting runeword, to gain the aura benefit without having to sacrifice equipment slots. The most popular are Insight for the Meditation aura, Infinity for the Conviction aura, and Faith for the Fanaticism aura.

Available Offensive Auras

  • Concentration
  • Conviction
  • Fanaticism
  • Holy Fire
  • Holy Freeze
  • Holy Shock
  • Might
  • Sanctuary
  • Thorns

Available Defensive Auras

What aura do you use most often?

Use the advanced search to find specific runewords based on its properties. Use the runeword calculator to find out which runewords you can make with the runes you own.

Stacking auras

maximum aura stacked by using runewords, paladin skills, and act 2 mercenary

When combining multiple of these runewords, you can stack the different auras and gain the effects of all of them. When using multiple runewords with the same aura, those auras are combined into one aura with the levels added. For example, two level 15 Holy Shock from a Dream helm and shield, will combine into one level 30 Holy Shock aura.

Auras coming from different sources, for example, items and skills, will not combine, but the higher level aura will cancel out the lower level one. Also, auras granted by items will benefit from synergies!

There are 14 offensive aura runewords (defensive list below)
