Socketable items are the ones which do not function until they are socketed into an item which means to grant the bonuses of the socketable items to the socketed items, the socketable items can be placed in the socketed items. Except the “throwing weapons” sockets are present in all of the items and their number varies from item to item depending upon its quality. However, the number of sockets can be increased in an item by “Horadric Cube Recipes”, another way to add more sockets is to complete the first quest in Act 5. Among other socketable items i.e., jewels and gems there are runes, which are the most important of all. In this article we give a detail about the runes in Diablo 2: Resurrected. You can buy diablo 2 resurrected runes online.
Use of Runes
Runes are used with weapons, armors, helms and shields. The best use of Runes, however, is in terms of its potential, is to create “Rune Words”, which can only be created in socketed items such as body armours, shields etc. A right combination and proper order of runes alongwith the exact number of sockets in the socketed item are essential to make a runeword ( Note that , not all the items with sockets are not socketed items, such as rare, unique, magic etc. do have sockets but are not “Socketed items”). Only the items with a grey name are socketed. Of all the three above-mentioned requirements, if any one of these is not met, the added Runeword bonuses will not be applied to the item, and only the effects of individual runes will be applied.
List of runes
The runes when inserted in some weapon, they enhance its Damaging property and increase the Attack Rate. When socketed in Armor, shield or helm these runes increase the Defencive property of the item. There are a total of 33 runes in Diablo 2: Resurrected, namely:
El, Eld, Tir, Nef, Eth, Ith, Tal, Ral, Ort, Thul, Amn, Sol, Shael, Dol, Hel, Io, Lum, Ko, Fal, Lem, Pul, Um, Mal, Ist, Gul, Vex, Ohm, Lo, Sur, Ber, Jah, Cham, Zod.
All of the Diablo 2 items and runes are available online.
Runeword is a term used for those items that have been socketed with a combination of specific runes in proper order. So, Runewords are weapons and armors socketed with specific runes. As mentioned earlier, to make runewords for an item an exact number of sockets is required, on the item in a specific order. Runewords, if weapons, are the most powerful of all the weapons and if armors, are most powerful of all the armors in the game. To make a powerful runeword , more scarce and high level runes are required which are difficult to obtain, but are worth the struggle. Runewords give an additional bonus, along with the individual bonuses of the runes that are socketed, on combining the right runes in the right places.
The higher the level of the runes, the more powerful the runeword is in which those runes are used. The levels of runes can be upgraded by combining 2 to 3 low level runes (of the level below the desired rune) and a gem of particular quality. The qualities of a gem can be perfect, flawless, normal gem, flawed, and chipped.
