io rune

An Io 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 Io rune provides +10 to Vitality when inserted in any item.

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

An Io rune requires level 35 to use. When you socket an item with an Io rune, you increase the level requirement to level 35, unless it was already higher.
