Obedience is the rune word 'HelKoThulEthFal' for polearms in Diablo II: Lord of Destruction.

With extremely high damage, 40% crushing blow, and an enchant proc which adds a large attack rating bonus, all alongside 40% faster hit recovery, as well as a defense and resistance boost (useful since the wielder will not be wearing a shield), Obedience is certainly an excellent way to level a playing field in Hell Difficulty. All for two common runes and three runes that are not at all hard to obtain. As a polearm, this is equippable by Act 2 mercenaries, and is one of the best weapons available for them without needing to pay an arm and leg.
