How to make a runeword

Shield runeword bases are often picked based on the strength requirement. Elite light shields or Grim Shield/Troll Nest don't lower the run speed, have a lower strength requirement and have goof blocking chance. Paladins should always go for class-specific shields because they can drop with up to +45 to all resistance and higher blocking chance.

Use the advanced search to find specific runewords based on its properties. Use the runeword calculator to find out which runewords you can make with the rune you own.
