A Lo rune is a high rune which can be socketed into equipment in Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. Although Lo is not the rarest rune, it is among the most valuable in ladder play, due to its use in popular ladder-only rune words such as Fortitude and Grief.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Equipment type Effects
Weapon 20% Deadly Strike
Body armor or helm 5% To Maximum Lightning Resist
Shield 5% To Maximum Lightning Resist

Socketing an item with a Lo rune increases the item's level requirement to 59, unless it was already higher.

Sources[edit | edit source]

The Act 2 (H) Good treasure class has a chance to drop a Lo rune, as do higher Good treasure classes.

In single-player, open or ladder games only, the Horadric Cube can transmute two Ohm runes and one normal diamond into one Lo rune.
