Unbending Will runeword

Unbending Will is a Diablo 2 Resurrected runeword created by combining fal + io + ith + eld + el + hel into a 6 socket sword. It requires at least level 41 to equip.

The Unbending Will runeword is a mid level sword runeword released in patch 2.4. It is a great mid level and budget melee weapon that offers a huge boost to Enhanced Damage.

It is comparable to other melee runewords like Black, Death, and Oath. It looks like this runeword will fit as a runeword specifically for the Act 5 mercenary after the mercenary balance changes.

With a relatively high chance to proc Taunt, you will have a consistent way of debuffing your enemies. Keep in mind that Taunt is a single target war cry. When used on an Act 5 mercenary, he will only cast Taunt on the enemies he is already targeting.
