ort rune

Diablo 2 Resurrected ort rune

An Ort 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 Ort rune provides Lightning Resist +35% when inserted in shields or off-hands, Lightning Resist +30% in body armor and headgear, and Adds 1-50 Lightning Damage in weapons.

Ort runes are mostly wanted for their use in the Spirit runeword and for repairing and recharging weapons.

You can cube 3 Ral runes together to get an Ort rune. You can also obtain an Ort rune from nightmare countess. You can get an Ort rune from the normal hellforge quest.

An Ort rune requires level 21 to use. When you socket an item with an Ort rune, you increase the level requirement to level 21, unless it was already higher.
