Rain: Armor Rune Word - Diablo 2

Rain Rune Word in Dusk Shroud

Rain is the Druid class specific Rune Word that's available for Chest armor slots. Much like all of the other class specific Rune Words this one grants +2 to Druid Skills and provides some other useful benefits to Druids. This Rune Word is usually used as a cheap alternative to Chains of Honor, which is a commonly used Druid Rune Word as is Enigma.

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.
