Treachery: Armor Rune Word - Diablo 2

Trachery Rune word in Russet Armor

Treachery is one of the class specific Rune Words available in Diablo 2; this one is made for Assassins. It offers +2 to Assassin Skills along with other bonuses that are useful to them such as Increased Attack Speed and Faster Hit Recovery. This armor is designed as a budget Chains of Honor Rune Word since the highest rank Rune it takes is a Lem.

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.
