Chaos: Weapon Rune Word - Diablo 2

Chaos Rune Word in Scissors Katar

Chaos is an Assassin only Weapon Rune Word which grants the Whirlwind Ability amongst other benefits. Assassin's have a whole build built around this Rune Word called Wwsin but that build is mostly PvP focused rather than PvE. Unless you are specifically doing a Wwsin spec it's recommended that you pick a better Rune Word for your Assassin as there is better out there.

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.

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.
