Evil has returned, and it’s more terrifying than ever.

What are Runewords in Diablo 2?

Runewords are the best way of upgrading your items in Diablo 2. Combining the right rune with the correct item can grant you a massive spike in power, making you a force to be reckoned with.

In order to form Runewords, you’ll first need the key component: runes. These can be combined together with gems to create more powerful and complex runes, or left alone if you’re looking to slot them in and create a Runeword.

There are a few requisites for using Runewords, though:

  • Items must be gray text items – normal, exceptional, or Elite.
    • Low Quality, Superior, and Ethereal can be used.
  • The item must be of the correct type – trying to slot weapon runes into a piece of armor isn’t going to get you anywhere.
  • The item must have the correct amount of slots – there cannot be any left over.
    • For example, if you try to slot a two rune Runeword into an item with three slots, nothing will happen.
  • Runes must be socketed in the correct order – Think of it as literally writing a word, you can’t jumble up the letters.
    • Runes socket in the order 1, 2, 3, so you can’t place them wherever you want them.

Diablo 2 Runeword Recipes

In order to make your items Runeword ready, you’ll need to prepare them first using the Horadric Cube. This quest item is essential to completing Acts Two and Three, but it also comes with some unique perks.

Adding the following recipes to the cube will allow you to transform your items from normal to Runeword ready:

Recipe Ingredients Effects
1 Hel Rune, Scroll of Town Portal, Any Socketed Item Removes any socketed jewels, gems or runes.
1 Eld Rune + 1 Chipped Gem + Low Quality Weapon
  • Upgrade a low quality weapon to normal quality.
  • It can then be used in other recipes to add sockets, in preparation for turning it into a runeword.
1 El Rune + 1 Chipped Gem + Low Quality Armor
  • Upgrade a low quality armor to normal quality.
  • It can then be used in other recipes to add sockets, in preparation for turning it into a runeword.
1 Ral Rune + 1 Amn Rune + 1 Perfect Amethyst + Normal Weapon Adds 1-6 sockets to the weapon
1 Ral Rune + 1 Thul Rune + 1 Perfect Sapphire + Normal Helm Adds 1-3 sockets to the helm
1 Tal Rune + 1 Amn Rune + 1 Perfect Ruby + Normal Shield Adds 1-4 sockets to the shield
1 Ral Rune + 1 Thul Rune + 1 Perfect Sapphire + Normal Helm Adds 1-4 sockets to the armor
