A Shael 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 Shael rune provides 20% Increased Chance of Blocking when inserted in shields or off-hands, +20% Faster Hit Recovery in body armor and headgear, and +20% Increased Attack Speed in weapons.
Shael runes are most useful for meeting important breakpoints like Increased Attack Speed, Faster Hit Recovery, and Faster Block Rate.
You can cube 3 Sol runes and a chipped sapphire together to get a Shael rune. You can also obtain a Shael rune from nightmare countess. You can get a Shael rune from the nightmare hellforge quest.
A Shael rune requires level 29 to use. When you socket an item with a Shael rune, you increase the level requirement to level 29, unless it was already higher.
