nef rune

A Nef 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 Nef rune provides +30 Defense vs. Missile when inserted in shields or off-hands, body armor and headgear, and Knockback in weapons.

You can cube 3 Tir runes together to get a Nef rune. You can also obtain a Nef rune from normal countess. You can get a Nef rune from the normal hellforge quest.

A Nef rune requires level 13 to use. When you socket an item with a Nef rune, you increase the level requirement to level 13, unless it was already higher.
