Exile: Shield Rune Word - Diablo 2

Exile Rune Word in Royal Shield

Exile is a Paladin only Rune Word that you can Socket into any Shield with 4 open slots. This Rune Word is one of few that you can put into an Ethereal base since it comes with "Repairs 1 Durability Every 4 Seconds" as an affix, making your Ethereal item unbreakable.

Typically players that want an Exile typically do so for the Defiance Aura that it grants as well as the +2 Skill bonus to Offensive Auras. It's strongly recommended that you find a Paladin Shield with +30 or more All Resistance on it since the one thing this shield is lacking is protection against spells.

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.
