Honor: Weapon Rune Word - Diablo 2

Honor Rune Word in Battle Scythe

Honor is a low level Rune Word that is good for a wide variety of classes and builds. The highest level rune that it takes is Sol which also makes it a favorite for early Ladder characters looking to equip themselves with something decent for Nightmare difficulty.

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.
