FACT OF THE DAY
Runewords were highly popular in Diablo 2. Runes were socketed into items to “craft” a runeword which would give that item different stats. They were planned for Diablo 3 but never reached the final game. In Diablo IV, runes and runewords make a comeback. To keep the game world consistent, Blizzard appears to have utilised the same rune names and some of the same icon imagery we saw in Diablo 2. We don’t know the eventual number of runes or exactly how they’ll function as that is still be revealed. Will there be different grades of runes, can they be removed or which items can they be placed in for example. Find out more in our runes & runewords section.
