tal rune

Diablo 2 Resurrected tal rune

A Tal 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 Tal rune provides Poison Resist +35% when inserted in shields or off-hands, Poison Resist +30% in body armor and headgear, and +75 Poison damage over 5 seconds in weapons.

Tal runes are mostly wanted for their use in the Spirit runeword and their many cubing recipes.

You can cube 3 Ith runes together to get a Tal rune. You can also obtain a Tal rune from normal countess.

A Tal rune requires level 17 to use. When you socket an item with a Tal rune, you increase the level requirement to level 17, unless it was already higher.
