Lore: Helm Rune Word - Diablo 2

Lore Rune Word in Great Helm

Lore is one of the most commonly used low level Helm Rune Words in the game since it offers +1 to All Skills along with many other useful bonuses. The Light Radius, Mana After Each Kill and Lightning Resistance are usually overlooked for how useful they are on this helm since most people use it for the + Skills.

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.
