Dragon: Armor Rune Word - Diablo 2
Dragon Rune Word is generally used by people who are looking to stack different armors/weapons/shields with Auras on them. This is one of the only Rune Words that gives the Holy Fire Aura which is the only reason I have ever seen players make or use this Rune Word. Auradins are the only build I have personally used this Rune Word for.
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.
