Brand Rune Word

Brand is a rune word weapon in Diablo II. A high-powered runeword, it grants large bonuses to damage (especially against demons), Deadly Strike, a guaranteed high-level Bone Spear per attack, and heal-prevention. This runeword can cause quite a bit of damage, especially if an enemy is under the effects of the runeword's Amplify Damage curse. With the weapons attribute of ignoring defense, attack rating becomes irrelevant, as the calculation to hit is based on the monster and player's level instead of attack rating vs defense rating.

Although the Faith Rune Word is more popular among Bowazons, Brand may be more useful with Paladin builds who already benefit from Fanaticism. This Rune Word only works for Ladder characters.
