Plague runeword

Warning, this runeword is not active yet, do not attempt to create this. Follow all new releases here

Plague is a Diablo 2 Resurrected runeword created by combining cham + fal + um into a 3 socket weapon. It requires at least level 67 to equip.

The Plague runeword is a high level weapon runeword planned for the upcoming 2.4 patch. 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 Plague).

The stats are still subject to change. The information we have right now is based on the original game files, but the developers mentioned that these runewords will still be tweaked.

This runeword opens up opportunities for weapon types that currently don't have viable runeword options. Since it can be made in any weapon, it would be possible to make it in a Sorceress Orb or Assassin Claws, which don't have many options currently. A Necromancer would be able to make Plague in a dagger (Fanged Kife) making it synergize with Poison Dagger

With its current stats, it would be a well balanced runeword, and a particularly good mid-game option for Poison Necromancers, until they can obtain a Death's Web. It also provides much needed use to the underutilized Cham runes, which is currently only used in 3 runewords.
