Pattern runeword

Pattern is a Diablo 2 Resurrected runeword created by combining tal + ort + thul into a 3 socket claw. It requires at least level 23 to equip.

The Pattern runeword is a low level claws runeword released in patch 2.4. It is one of the runewords that were in the original game files, but were disabled. Blizzard had announced 10 new runewords for patch 1.11, but only 7 made it in the final release (excluding Pattern).

The updated stats for the Pattern runeword were revealed, and show that Pattern will be a good low-to-mid tier claw for Assassins transitioning from Normal to Nightmare. While it technically only requires level 23 to equip due to the runes, a Claw with 3 sockets can only roll on claws with iLevel 26 or higher. So the earliest you can find this is in Act 4 Normal.

The Faster Block Rate reduces the amount of frames of the blocking animation. By itself, this runeword lacks only 2 points to reach 3 frames (out of 5 frames default).
