hel rune

A Hel 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 Hel rune provides Requirements -15% when inserted in shields or off-hands, body armor and headgear, and Requirements -20% in weapons.

The primary use of Hel runes, beside runewords, is removing gems, runes, and jewels from socketed items.

You can cube 3 Dol runes and a chipped emerald together to get a Hel rune. You can also obtain a Hel rune from nightmare countess. You can get a Hel rune from the nightmare hellforge quest.

A Hel rune requires level 33 to use. When you socket an item with a Hel rune, you increase the level requirement to level 33, unless it was already higher.
