Diablo 2 Runes

Rune List

This is a list of all the runes in Diablo 2 Resurrected. Runes are small stones inscribed with magical glyphs that can be inserted into Socketed Items. Runes in Diablo II were releases with the Lord of Destruction expansion pack alongside rune words.
Runes are different from gems or jewels, not only do they provide an individual bonus when inserted, when inserting the correct amount in the right order, runewords with augmented abilities can be created. There are a total of 33 runes.
  • Runes can be upgraded by combining 2 or 3 of the same rune in the Horadric Cube.
  • Runes can have different bonuses when placed in a different item type, Armor or Weapons, some runes also have different bonuses when placed in Shields.
  • When a rune is socketed in an item, the level requirement will be at least the level requirement of the rune.
  • Runes are a common component of many crafting recipes.
  • Runes are divided in High runes, Mid runes, and Low runes

Rune Prices

Runes are often used as a currency to pay for items or other runes. It is often easier to convert the value of an item to runes, than to trade for other items. The value of runes varies drastically and depends on both the rarity of the rune and its usage.

The price of high runes doesn't always correspond to its cubing value, for example, 2 Jah runes can be cubed together to get a Cham rune, while a Cham rune is worth much less than a single Jah rune. This is easily explained by the fact that Jah runes are used in very popular and strong runewords like Enigma, while a Cham rune is rarely used.

A rough indication of rune prices can be found in the table below, note that these are ranges, and the price can very strongly based on the buyer's or seller&aapos;s needs. The value is converted to Ist runes as a base currency.
