Runes List

Diablo 2 Runes LiestThis is the Diablo 2 runes list of all the runes in Diablo 2. Runes only impart their stats once they are socketed directly into an item. Also see runes and runewords.

  • To upgrade runes you are required to use 2 or 3 runes (plus a gem) of the level below the one you want to create in order to make 1 rune of the wanted rank. Recipes listed below.
  • All Runes have the same stats when in a Helm or Armor, and only two have different when in Shields.
  • Clvl: A character must be this level to equip an item socketed with this rune. Only the Hel (r15) Rune does not have a Clvl. Runewords almost always have a Clvl equal to that of the highest level rune in that Runeword.
  • In non-ladder, only upgrading with chipped and three stones works, higher than that you must find.

To find out what Runewords you can make from your current owned runes, check the Runeword Calculator.
