Rune Value

Last Updated: June 26th 2023

Share on Social

All 33 Runes in Diablo 2 are listed below in order of Trade Value from highest to lowest. Rune value is mainly a function of their rarity and what Runewords they are most commonly used in (see our Runeword Tier List). Keep in mind that the Relative Value of runes changes over the course of a Ladder season. Runes listed with Very High, High, Medium, or Low values are typically easy to trade. Runes listed with a value of None are practically worthless past the very beginning of a Ladder reset, but some can be traded in bulk for Crafting and Runeword re-rolling.
