For more information about the mechanics and classifications of rune words, see Rune Words.

The following is a list of weapon rune words in Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. Each functions in nonmagic weapons of the given types with exactly the required number of sockets.

The existing bonuses on weapons persist after adding the Rune Word and may sum up in total. For example, all generic Scepters already include "+50% Damage to Undead" bonus and it adds up with King's Grace Rune Word, for a total of +100%.

Weapon classificationEdit

Mace ClassEdit

Although several weapon types are labeled "Mace Class", only the following weapons, and their exceptional and elite versions, are maces.

The following weapons, and their exceptional and elite versions, are clubs.

The following weapons, and their exceptional and elite versions, are hammers.

Although several weapon types are labeled "Staff Class", only two-handed rods are staves. Wands are not staves, and are a separate category of melee weapon. Orbs are classified as neither staves nor melee weapons, and are a separate category of weapon.

Missile weaponsEdit

The types of missile weapons that can have sockets are bows, including Amazon bows, and crossbows.
