vex rune

A Vex rune is a high tier rune that can be socketed into armor and weapons in Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction and Diablo 2 Resurrected. A Vex rune provides +5% to Maximum Fire Resist when inserted in shields or off-hands, body armor and headgear, and 7% Mana Stolen per Hit in weapons.

You can cube 2 Gul runes and a ruby together to get a Vex rune.

A Vex rune requires level 55 to use. When you socket an item with a Vex rune, you increase the level requirement to level 55, unless it was already higher.
