Chains of Honor: Armor Rune Word - Diablo 2

Chains of Honor in Archon Plate

Chains of Honor is one of the best available Rune Words in the game for almost all classes due to the + 2 Skills benefit it grants along with the +65 All Resistances. The Damage Reduced by 8%, Replenish Life and Life Stolen Per Hit are also extremely nice bonuses; this Rune Word is basically a tank piece of armor with a small bonus to DPS in the form of Skills, and Damage to Demons and Undead.

Keep in mind that all Rune Words you create will retain any pre-existing bonuses found on the item. If you find a 'Superior' piece of armor with +Enhanced Defense, a Superior Weapon with +Enhanced Damage or a Helm/Weapon that has +Skill bonuses for a certain class, all of these will remain on the final Rune Word that is created. It's also possible to 'ebug' a piece of Ethereal Armor that you find which will increase the Defense bonuses by 50%, check out my Ebugging Guide for more information.


Farming High Runes: Out of all locations in the game one stands above the rest for farming specifically High Runes, the Countess during Act 1. The Countess has a guaranteed chance to always drop a High Rune and can even drop more than one. Check out my The Countess Farming Guide for more information.
