Diablo II Resurrected introduces eight new rune words to its PTR


Speak the words and earn the power. That’s what rune words are all about in Diablo II: Resurrected, and now there are eight new words for players to learn. On the game’s PTR, at least.

These new words – Bulwark, Cure, Ground, Hearth, Temper, Hustle, Metamorphosis, and Mosaic – are intended to “sprinkle variety into the competitive meta,” with an eye on improving resistance bonuses, increasing movement speed, and buffing assassin and druid builds. All of these new rune words will be coming to ladder and offline solo play when the update releases.

The PTR testing will run between now and January 31st. For those who are curious on learning a powerful new in-game language, the PTR patch notes offer more granular details about what each new word does.

Activision-Blizzard is considered a controversial gaming company owing to a long string of scandals over the last few years, including the Blitzchung boycott, mass layoffs, labor disputes, and executive pay fiasco. In 2021, the company was sued by California for fostering a work environment rife with sexual harassment and discrimination, the disastrous corporate response to which compounded Blizzard’s ongoing pipeline issues and the widespread perception that its online games are in decline. Multiple state and federal agencies are investigating the company as employees unionize and call for Bobby Kotick’s resignation. As of 2023, the company is being acquired by no less than Microsoft.
