fal rune

A Fal rune is a low tier rune that can be socketed into armor and weapons in Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction and Diablo 2 Resurrected. A Fal rune provides +10 to Strength when inserted in any item.

You can cube 3 Ko runes and a flawed sapphire together to get a Fal rune. You can also obtain a Fal rune from hell countess. You can get a Fal rune from the nightmare hellforge quest.

A Fal rune requires level 41 to use. When you socket an item with a Fal rune, you increase the level requirement to level 41, unless it was already higher.
