Bone: Armor Runeword - Diablo 2

Bone Rune Word in Wyrmhide

Bone Runeword is one of the Class specific Armor Runewords that are available in Diablo 2; this Runeword is made specifically for the Necromancer class. Every class in Diablo 2 has an easy to make Runeword like this between the levels of 30 - 55 that offers + Skills to their class and some additional useful benefits.

Typically these Runewords are used by players in 'budget sets' before they're able to make the more powerful and more expensive Runewords that are available like Enigma, Chains of Honor or Fortitude.

Keep in mind that all Runewords 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 Runeword 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.
