Faith Runeword

1x Ohm Rune, 1x Jah Rune, 1x Lem Rune, 1x Eld Rune and a 4-socket Missile Weapon

Bow Amazon's Favorite

Faith is an expensive but powerful runeword and a popular choice for Amazons. It grants great boosts to damage and attack speed because of the Fanaticism aura and ignores the target’s defense. It also contains the “Reanimate As Returned” effect, which has a 10% chance to reanimate an enemy you kill, just like the Necromancer does.

Recommended are the Amazon or the Rouge Mercenary, or more specifically the Bowazon, as they both use missile weapons. As you can see, this is a quite  expensive runeword that wields tremendous power. If you want to upgrade your Amazon, you should give it a try.

How do I socket the FAITH RUNEWORD?

Make sure you have all runes available - 1x Ohm Rune, 1x Jah Rune, 1x Lem Rune, 1x Eld Rune - then put them into the sockets of the base item, in the correct order pictured below. Pay extra attention to this. The rune word is 'OhmJahLemEld' for a reason, so if you don't socket it in the exact order, the result would not be 'Faith' (and instead you would end up with a bunch of runes socketed into the base item).
Take your desired base item, then socket the runes in this exact order:

Farming the Runes

  • Ohm: Search this high rune in Act 2 on hell. Or transmute 2x ”Vex” + normal Emerald = “Ohm” in the Horadric Cube.
  • Jah can drop in Act 4. You can also craft it with 2x ”Ber” + flawless Sapphire = “Jah” in the Cube.
  • Lem can be farmed by killing The Countess on hell or in The Hellforge also on hell. It can also drop in Act 3 and be crafted by transmuting 3x ”Fal” + flawed Ruby = “Lem” in the Cube.
  • Eld: This rune can drop from The Countess, the difficulty doesn’t matter. In The Hellforge the difficulty should be on normal. You can also find it dropping in Act 2 and craft it in the Cube with 3x” El” = “Eld”.

Which Base to Use?

Very good bases are the Diamond Bow and the Shadow Bow. If you want no extra Dexterity to equip the Shadow Bow, use the Diamond Bow.

The difference in damage is here very little. Keep in mind, that your weapon will need 4 Sockets, to create the runeword Faith.


Faith ignores the target’s defense, comes with a fanaticism aura which increases damage, high attack speed and attack rating, and even +1-2 to all skills. Every time you defeat an enemy, you have a 10% chance to revive them and let them fight for you, like the Necromancer. This is great to give your character some extra cover.


One weakness of Faith is the rather expensive Jah rune. But besides that, Faith is an excellent runeword.

How much is FAITH worth?

Runewords can have a huge difference in value. In order to find out the worth of the Faith Runeword, we need to add up the value of the single runes, as well as the base item used for socketing. Every roll will require these basic ingredients and will get you the Faith Runeword with random stats. This can be defined as the minimum value. The higher the stats of the roll, the higher the final value of the runeword. A "perfect roll" in a superior base tends to be the most rare and hence much more expensive than a random roll.

Can I buy the FAITH Runeword in D2R?

Yes, we can offer the already rolled Faith Runeword for you in different bases listed below.
Alternatively, you may want to get the unmade version, where we'll deliver the runes plus the base item to you. You can then complete the socketing yourself (offering a chance for a perfect roll, which would be of significantly higher value).
Here's the list of Faith Runewords in various Base Items and Stats, which we can source for you from our network of trusted trade partners.
