Diablo 2 Runewords

DIABLO 2 RUNEWORDS

Runeword Changes in Patch 2.4

New Runewords

For the first time in a nearly a decade, Patch 2.4 brings new runewords to the Ladder, and unlocks new bases for existing runewords.

The new runewords are available only when ladder season 1 starts on April 28th. There are 7 new runewords to discover, Flickering Flame, Mist, Obsession, Pattern, Plague, Unbending Will and Wisdom.

New Runeword Bases

What are Runewords?

Runewords in Diablo 2 are items created by inserting a combination of runes into non-magical, socketed items. On top of the properties of the individual runes, the item gets powerful properties by inserting the correct runes in the right order. There are 78 active runewords. Get started early on with these good low level runewords.

Runewords will work on superior items. However runewords cannot be upgraded, so make sure to use a base of the quality you need.

Use the advanced search to find specific runewords based on its properties. Use the runeword calculator to find out which runewords you can make with the runes you own.

You can find more frequently asked questions and answers on the faq page. You can find a detailed guide on how to make runewords on the how-to page or in the below section.

Find the Required Runes for the Runeword

Diablo 2 player finding runes
  1. First, get all the runes listed in the recipe. You can either trade the runes or go look for them yourself. Low and Mid runes can easily be found from the Countess and the Hellforge Quest. High runes rely on a lot of luck because they can only be found from a monster or chest drop starting from Hell difficulty.
  2. Make sure to double check your runes, for example Lo and Io are often mistaken.

Find the Correct Runeword Base Item

Diablo 2 runeword base
  1. You need a non-magical, gray item. Ethereal and superior items can be used to create a Runeword. You can not use, magic, rare, unique, set, or crafted items.
  2. The item needs the have the exact amount of sockets as listed in the recipe. If the item has more sockets, the Runeword will not work.
  3. The item type must be eligible for the Runeword. F.e. Insight can only be made in Polearms or Staves (missile weapons too in patch 2.4), so it will not work in Spears (which look like Polearms). Note that for Runewords, Scepters, Maces, Hammers, and Clubs are distinct classes, even though the game groups them all under the Mace class. See the detailed type definition for more info.
  4. When you find a good base without sockets you can try to add sockets with the Horadric Cube socket recipe. If the maximum amount of sockets on the item equals the amount you need, you can also take it to Larzuk, he will add the maximum amount of sockets to the item as a quest reward.

Insert the Runes In the Correct Order As Listed In The Runeword Recipe

Diablo 2 creating the Exile runeword
  1. Make sure to add the runes in the correct order as the recipe says. If the order of the runes is wrong, the runeword will not work and your runes will be lost.

Adding Sockets to Runeword Bases

You can either add sockets to a white base by giving the item to Larzuk, however, this will add the maximum amount of sockets that the item can have.

You can also add sockets with the following horadric cube recipes. These recipes will not work for low quality items. You can transmute low quality items to normal quality items with other cube recipes. The following recipes will add between one and the maximum amount of sockets to the item. The game will roll a 6 sided dice, if it rolls higher than the maximum amount of sockets, the maximum amount of sockets is chosen. This means that f.e. a Monarch, will have 50/50 chances to get 4 sockets:
