Dream runeword

Dream is a Diablo 2 Resurrected runeword created by combining io + jah + pul into a 3 socket helm or shield. It requires at least level 65 to equip.

Dream is a high level and expensive aura runeword that grants a level 15 Holy Shock aura. When combining a Dream helm and a Dream shield, the Holy Shock auras stack to level 30. This dual Dream setup is the base for a Tesladin or Holy Shock Sorceress.

Dream has a 10% chance to cast a level 15 Confuse when struck.

Dream increases your Hit Recovery Speed by a decent 30%.  Faster hit recovery reduces the "hit stun" animation time, which is triggered when a hit takes more than 1/12th of your total life. Most classes will already jump a few breakpoints with this bonus alone.
