ith rune

An Ith 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 Ith rune provides 15% Damage Taken Goes to Mana when inserted in shields or off-hands, body armor and headgear, and +9 to Maximum Damage in weapons.

You can cube 3 Eth runes together to get an Ith rune. You can also obtain an Ith rune from normal countess. You can get an Ith rune from the normal hellforge quest.

An Ith rune requires level 15 to use. When you socket an item with an Ith rune, you increase the level requirement to level 15, unless it was already higher.
