This is an extremely rare rune which can be inserted into Socketed Items. Requires level 69 to use. The Zod rune is statistically the rarest item to be dropped in the game, with only Diablo, Act V monsters, and Hell Bovines dropping them.
Provided one can find an Ethereal piece of equipment with a socket, this rune can turn that item's usefulness into well over that of a regular item. Since it's impossible to destroy an item with a Zod rune socketed, a hero can make use of its extra damage/defense with less need for gold than otherwise, and the -10 to all item requirements, while slight, could allow up to +20 points into Vitality, due to the lessened need for Strength and Dexterity. This method of action, however, is indeed costly if one only has that Zod rune.
