Stone: Armor Rune Word - Diablo 2

Stone Runeword in Boneweave

Stone Rune Word is a mid level Rune Word which offers the user a ton of defensive bonuses along with Faster Hit Recovery. This armor's biggest downside is that it doesn't offer very much All Resistances, so you'll need to make up for that on your other pieces.

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.
