Runes

diablo 2 runes

Runes are small magical stones that you can insert into a Socketed Item, giving it powerful abilities. You can use Runes to create some Crafted Items as well.

Also, if you insert into a certain item some specific combinations (known as Rune Words) at the right order, this item will obtain even more powerful and unique abilities. This item’s name will change to Unique and it will be displayed with gold letters.

Common Runes

These type of runes are pretty common. If you want to free up some space, you can sell all Common Runes and save all Runes from Sol to Zod (semi-Rare and Extremely Rare Runes). In addition, you will receive Tal, Ral, and Ort in Act 5 as a quest reward.
