Want to know how to make the runewords in Diablo 2 Resurrected? You probably won’t need these runewords to complete your first campaign run, but they’re beneficial for playing on harder difficulties and Hardcore runs in which dying deletes your character permanently. To make a runeword in Diablo 2 is simple: put the runes listed, in the order shown in the runeword recipe, into a compatible item’s sockets.
Some of these runewords require some very rare runes, which take a long time to find. Instead of searching for them, you can use the Diablo 2 Resurrected Horadric Cube to make the harder-to-find runes by combining commonly found runes with other items.
Here are all of the possible Diablo 2 Resurrected runewords that you can make, the runes you need to make them, the equipment every runeword can be used with, and a description of every runeword’s abilities. There are a total of 81 runewords; 26 of them were originally exclusive to the ladder mode, so there’s a lot to go over. Unfortunately, Rune words aren’t a particularly beginner-friendly mechanic, so if you need some guidance on what to do as a new player, make sure to check out our Diablo 2 Resurrected beginners’ guide.
