A Sol rune is a low rune which can be socketed into equipment in Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. Sol runes are fairly common, but useful for low level rune words such as Insight and Lore, and Horadric Cube recipes such as crafting Blood rings.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Equipment type Effects

Socketing an item with a Sol rune increases the item's level requirement to 27, unless it was already higher.
