Last Wish: Weapon Rune Word - Diablo 2

Last Wish Rune Word in Berserker Axe

Last Wish is the Rune Word that you want to put into your weapon when you plan to wreck bosses. It has some of the highest +% Enhanced Damage of any Rune Word and it comes with the highest Crushing Blow roll of any Rune Word. Crushing Blow deals % based damage depending on the monster's current HP, meaning the more HP the monster has, the more damage it'll do.

Ontop of the Crushing Blow it also has "Ignore Target's Defense" & Might Aura is also built in which increases the damage you and your allies deal. If that wasn't enough it does other various things as well, with an additional 3 different procs.

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.
