An Eld rune provides +7% Blocking when inserted in shields or off-hands, Lowers Stamina drain by 15% in body armor and headgear, and +75% Damage to Undead, +50 to Attack Rating against Undead in weapons.
You can cube 3 El runes together to get an Eld rune. You can also obtain an Eld rune from normal countess. You can get an Eld rune from the normal hellforge quest.
An Eld rune requires level 11 to use. When you socket an item with an Eld rune, you increase the level requirement to level 11, unless it was already higher.
