Call to Arms runeword (CtA)

Call to Arms is a Diablo 2 Resurrected runeword created by combining amn + ral + mal + ist + ohm into a 5 socket weapon. It requires at least level 57 to equip.

Call to Arms is most popular for allowing any character to cast Battle Orders and Battle Command. The Battle Orders and Battle Commands levels are boosted by + to all skills gear. This runeword is great for boosting any character's life, mana, and skills.

This runeword is exclusively used as a weapon switch combined with a Spirit shield to use these Warcries and buff the character and their team.

When creating this for a Paladin, a good option is to a look for a Caduceus with +3 to Holy Shield, this way the Paladin's Holy Shield will be even more potent when buffing.

Call to Arms grants a maximum of +6 to Battle Command. Battle Command temporarily increases all skills by 1. The level bonus is not increased by the level of Battle Command, only the duration is increased.
