Ladder play in Diablo 2 Resurrected is essentially a ranked competitive system that allows players to test themselves against other players. Normally this consists of putting your skills to the test with a fresh Ladder-specific character and a series of modes that present their unique challenges. Each mode will have its own leaderboard where players compete to strategically gain experience within a limited timeframe while having access to Ladder-specific content. If you want to get a better leaderboard, the best early ladder runes you can't miss. They will create a certain buff for your d2r ladder items (weapons, shields, armor, etc.), and help you get a great starting in the D2R Ladder Season 1! So here we break down the best early ladder runewords! Unbending Will (Sword base, Fal + Io + Ith + Eld + El + Hel) 18% Chance to cast Level 18 Taunt on striking +3 To Combat Skills (Barbarian Only) +20-30% Increased Attack Speed (varies) +300-350% Enhanced Damage (varies) +9 To Maximum Damage +50 To Attack Rating +75% Damage to Undead +50 Attack Rating Against Undead 8-10% Life Stolen Per Hit (varies) Prevent Monster Heal +10 To Strength +10 To Vitality Damage Reduced By 8 +1 Light Radius Requirements -20% This runeword provides good affixes for its inexpensive runes, rivaled by much more expensive endgame runewords. Although dedicated to barbarians (both player characters and Act V hirelings), other melee classes will use it well. These runes can already be collected on nightmare difficulty, and you will quickly be able to defeat monsters on Hell. Spirit (Sword base, Tal + Thul + Ort + Amn) +2 To All Skills +25-35% Faster Cast Rate (varies) +55% Faster Hit Recovery Adds 1-50 Lightning Damage Adds 3-14 Cold Damage 3 Second Duration (Normal) +75 Poison Damage Over 5 Seconds 7% Life Stolen Per Hit +250 Defense Vs. Missile +22 To Vitality +89-112 To Mana (varies) +3-8 Magic Absorb (varies) Spirit is an excellent end-game caster Rune Word that low-to-middle level characters can even use. For many builds, Spirit is often made in a Monarch and is rolled many times to get 35% Faster Cast Rate, which is designed to allow most characters to reach a new breakpoint when using standard caster items. It is fairly inexpensive considering the +2 to All Skills bonus that comes with it. Black (Club/Hammer/Mace base, Thul + Io + Nef) +120% Enhanced Damage 40% Chance Of Crushing Blow +200 To Attack Rating Adds 3-14 Cold Damage - Cold Duration 3 Seconds +10 To Vitality 15% Increased Attack Speed Knockback Magic Damage Reduced By 2 Level 4 Corpse Explosion (12 Charges) Black runeword is popular mainly amongst Smiter Paladins and other melee builds due to it's very high Crushing Blow chance, with which even the strongest monsters, like the Ubers can be defeated. Honor (Melee Weapon base, Amn + El + Ith + Tir + Sol) +160% Enhanced Damage +9 To Minimum Damage +9 To Maximum Damage 25% Deadly Strike +250 To Attack Rating +1 to All Skills 7% Life Stolen Per Hit Replenish Life +10 +10 To Strength +1 To Light Radius +2 To Mana After Each Kill Honor is an early game runeword that provides some useful attributes, such as life leech, deadly strike and strength. It's often used as a low level duel weapon. If you manage to find a 5 socket weapon with decent base damage during levelling, making a Honor runeword can speed up your Melee build's levelling process a lot. Edge (Missile Weapon base, Tir + Tal + Amn) Level 15 Thorns Aura When Equipped +35% Increased Attack Speed +320-380% Damage To Demons (varies) +280% Damage To Undead +75 Poison Damage Over 5 Seconds 7% Life Stolen Per Hit Prevent Monster Heal +5-10 To All Attributes (varies) +2 To Mana After Each Kill Reduces All Vendor Prices 15% Edge is a rather unique Rune Word and probably more commonly used on a Mule character for the "Reduce All Vendor Prices" than it is on a character you plan on actually playing. Some Amazons may use Edge until they're high enough level for Harmony or Melody but aside from that the only class or build that would benefit a lot is a Summon Necromancer or Summoner Druid. The built in Thorns Aura will be great for their minions since they take a lot of hits and since this Rune Word can only go in Missile Weapons, it's well suited for a caster. Leaderboard rankings will reset once the Ladder season ends and shift characters to non-ladder mode. This will give you the opportunity to store your hard-earned treasured loot and Ladder-specific items for future Ladder seasons. So these best ladder Runewords in Diablo 2 Resurrected will help you get more advantages!
