Runes and runewords were introduced in Diablo 2’s expansion Lord of Destruction
Runes and runewords were introduced in Diablo 2’s expansion Lord of Destruction. Whereas in the base Diablo 2 game you had to rely on unique weapons and armor for end-game gear, this new ranked system gave the game an entirely new feel. Now you could find runes anywhere in the game, to be traded or hoarded to create powerful runewords. Since Diablo 2: Resurrected folds in the base game and the expansion, runes will play a huge role in the online economy and in the power ranking of your characters. Let’s take a look at how runes work, what runes afford what abilities, and how to create runewords. This guide also includes a full list of the runewords available in Diablo 2: Resurrected.

The game has a steep learning curve. Some mechanics are intuitive and are all-too-familiar to players with a background in action role-playing games, but others are more nuanced and include multiple layers.The identify mechanic is a staple of the Diablo series, with its origins rooted in the first game. But Blizzard has iterated on the formula throughout the years. In Diablo 2, unidentified items can be found when looting the corpses of slain enemies. These items are unknown, greyed out, and hidden until they’ve been identified.
