The Right Runes

Look at the rune list for information on how to get the right runes. For weapons, you’ll want to find the best type of weapon possible since that’s what the bonus damage is based on. Same with Armor if you are after Defense and shields for blocking percentage. If defense isn’t important, look for an item that looks good, has low requirements, and for armor and shields, is not going to slow your running speed.

To Make a Runeword

  1. Items used for Runewords must be gray text items, normal, exceptional, or Elite. Low Quality, Superior, and Ethereal can be used, but you can not use magical, Rare, Set, Crafted, or Unique items, even if they have the correct number of sockets.
  2. The item must be of the correct type.
  3. The item must have exactly the correct number of sockets — no more.
  4. You must socket the Runes in the correct order.

Find out what Runewords you can make.

Notes:

  • The Runes fill the sockets in numerical order automatically, i.e. in the order 1, 2, 3, …. For example, trying to place the third Rune of a Runeword into the third socket while sockets 1 and 2 are empty will result in the Rune filling socket 1, contrary to intentions. As mentioned elsewhere, it is possible to remove an item from a socket, but the item is destroyed in the process.
  • The Runeword Preparation Recipes tune equipment for receiving Runewords.
  • Check the Rune FAQ for further help.
  • Use the Runeword Calculator to find out what runewords you can create with the runes you own.

Cube Recipes with Ral

Runeword Preparation Recipes

Horadric Cube Transmute Button 1 Ral Rune + 1 Amn Rune + 1 Perfect Amethyst + Normal Weapon = Socketed Weapon of same type

  • This recipe adds 1-6 sockets to the weapon, making it potentially useful for a runeword.
  • The game rolls for up to 6 sockets with this recipe. If a weapon can not have 6 sockets, then the number is capped to the maximum for that particular item after the roll. A weapon with 3 sockets maximum would have 1/6 chance for 1, 1/6 chance for 2, and 4/6 chance for 3.

1 Ral Rune + 1 Thul rune+ 1 Perfect Sapphire + Normal Helm –> Socketed Helm of same type

  • This recipe adds 1-3 sockets to the helm, making it potentially useful for a runeword.
  • The game always rolls for up to 6 sockets with this recipe. The amount of sockets is then capped to the maximum amount that particular item can have. A helm type that only allows 2 sockets would have a 1/6 chance of 1, and a 5/6 chance of 2.

Item Upgrades

1 Ral Rune + 1 Sol Rune + 1 Perfect Emerald + Normal Unique Weapon –> Exceptional Version of Weapon

  • v1.10 and later only.
  • This recipe upgrades the item type of the weapon without changing the stats, and is useful to increase the weapon’s damage.
  • Ethereal items, as well as socketed items can be upgraded without changing their nature.
  • Level requirements, as well as strength and dexterity requirements, will increase corresponding to the exceptional version of the item.

1 Ral Rune + 1 Thul Rune + 1 Perfect Amethyst + Normal (Basic) Rare Armor –> Exceptional Rare Armor

  • v1.10 and later only.
  • This recipe upgrades the item type of the armor without changing the stats, and is useful to increase the armor’s defense.
  • Ethereal items, as well as socketed items can be upgraded without changing their nature.
  • Level requirements, as well as strength requirements, may increase corresponding to the exceptional version of the item.

Repairs and Recharges

1 Ral Rune + Armor –> Fully Repaired Armor

  • v1.10 and later only.
  • This recipe will fully repair an item without visiting the NPC blacksmith. This is useful to avoid a trip to town, or to repair some armors that have astronomical repair costs, due to irregularities in how the game determines the price for repairs.
  • Does not work on ethereal items.
  • Charges on an item are not replenished.

1 Ral Rune + 1 Flawed Gem (any kind) + Armor –> Fully Repaired and Recharged Armor

  • v1.10 and later only.
  • This recipe will fully repair and recharge an item without visiting the NPC blacksmith. This is useful to avoid a trip to town, or to repair some armor that have astronomical repair costs, due to irregularities in how the game determines the price for repairs or recharges.
  • Will not repair (but will recharge) ethereal items.
  • Works on every type of armor: boots, gloves, belts, etc.
