All Diablo 2 Resurrected Runewords and What They Do

Diablo 2 Resurrected Runewords make their appearance once again, and this time, you get access to all the Runewords, including those meant only for ladders before.

Runewords in Diablo 2 augment your equipment by combining items with powerful runes, though it takes a bit of effort to make it work right. It's worth the bother, though, especially if you're playing on higher difficulties.

Once you've brushed up on your Runewords, make sure to check out our guides for the best Paladin build, the best Necromancer build, and where to find those pesky Monastery Barracks.

Diablo 2 Resurrected Runewords | How to Use Runewords

Runewords only work for items highlighted in grey text, and the quality can be low, ethereal, and exceptional. You'll use runes, obviously, along with the piece of equipment you want to upgrade.

There are a few additional and more involved requirements, though.

  • The number of slots must match the Runeword, e.g., a one-slot Runeword won't fit with a two-slot weapon
  • The runes must be placed in order

We've outlined how to make items Runeword ready in our Horadric Cube recipes guide, and you'll want to make sure your chosen items are processed through the cube before proceeding with Runewards.

Diablo 2 Resurrected Runewords | Best Diablo 2 Runewords

There's obviously no shortage of Runewords, but if you're looking for the best picks, here's what should be on your radar.

Lore

  • Easy combination
  • Skill boost for all skills
Advertisement

Lore is a solid all-around choice for any class since it automatically boosts their skill power. It's also one of the easiest to combine.

Stealth

  • Increased mana regeneration, movement speed, and dexterity, decreased spellcasting time

Stealth's mana boost and dexterity increase make it a good pick for ranged classes and magic users, though not necessarily for everyone else.

Spirit

  • Solid all-around boost with some ranged defense added in
Advertisement

Spirit is another one that buffs several stats, and it even throws in some cold and lightning boosts for more nuanced class builds such as the Frozen Orb Sorceress or Smiter Paladin.

Heart of the Oak

  • Restores mana on hit, reduces spellcasting time, and resistance boost

Heart of the Oak is perfect for mana-intensive classes, not least because the 40% buff to all resistances helps keep the squishier characters alive longer.

Enigma

  • Increased damage dealt, reduced damage taken, life restoration, and Teleport
Advertisement

Offense-focused characters benefit the most from Enigma, but its biggest boon is granting any class the Teleport ability.
