el rune

An El rune is a low tier rune that can be socketed into armor and weapons in Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction and Diablo 2 Resurrected. An El rune provides +1 to Light Radius, +15 Defense when inserted in shields or off-hands, body armor and headgear, and +50 to Attack Rating, +1 to Light Radius in weapons.

You can obtain an El rune from normal countess. You can get an El rune from the normal hellforge quest.

An El rune requires level 11 to use. When you socket an item with an El rune, you increase the level requirement to level 11, unless it was already higher.
