A Lo rune is a high rune which can be socketed into equipment in Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. Although Lo is not the rarest rune, it is among the most valuable in ladder play, due to its use in popular ladder-only rune words such as Fortitude and Grief.
|Weapon||20% Deadly Strike|
|Body armor or helm||5% To Maximum Lightning Resist|
|Shield||5% To Maximum Lightning Resist|
Socketing an item with a Lo rune increases the item's level requirement to 59, unless it was already higher.
The Act 2 (H) Good treasure class has a chance to drop a Lo rune, as do higher Good treasure classes.
