Sanctuary runeword

Sanctuary is a Diablo 2 Resurrected runeword created by combining ko + ko + mal into a 3 socket shield. It requires at least level 49 to equip.

Sanctuary increases your Hit Recovery Speed by 20%.  Faster hit recovery reduces the "hit stun" animation time, which is triggered when a hit takes more than 1/12th of your total life.

Sanctuary also increases your Block Rate by 20%.  An increased block rate will reduce the time it takes for the blocking animation to finish. Most classes will hit the first or second breakpoint with this shield.
