Phoenix is the rune word 'VexVexLoJah' for weapons or off-hand armor in Diablo II: Lord of Destruction.

Phoenix is the only way to get enhanced damage on a shield, and the redemption aura is very helpful in keeping the character alive. The -28% fire resist is also useful for characters who specialize in fire damage. However, be aware that when triggering Firestorm, it will cause a cast animation, resulting in a delay of 0.6 seconds. Melee characters will be unable to attack during this time. Faster Cast Rate does reduce this delay, but at only half the effectiveness.

Thanks to its unusually large amount of enhanced damage if made into a shield, Phoenix is (by a considerable margin) the most damaging shield for Smiters to use, though its high chance of triggering firestorm sometimes caused lag on Battle.net.
