Venom is the rune word 'TalDolMal' for weapons in Diablo II: Lord of Destruction.

The idea behind Venom is novel: ignore a monster's defenses, poison it and stop its healing, then make it flee as the poison wears its life down. The lack of enhanced damage and increased attack speed makes it unsuitable for most physical attacking builds, though.
