If you look at the list of all runes, you can find out the cube recipes to create a rune of one level higher than Shael. Here are the Shael attributes:

Rank: (r13)
Weapon: Faster Attack Rate (+20)
Armor/Helm: Faster Hit Recovery (+20)
Shields: Faster Block Rate (+20)
Ilvl/Clvl Required: 29

The Right Runes

Look at the rune list for information on how to get the right runes. For weapons you'll want to find the best type of weapon possible, since that's what the bonus damage is based on. Same with Armor if you are after Defense and shields for blocking percentage. If defense isn't important, look for an item that looks good, has low requirements, and for armor and shields, is not going to slow your running speed.

To Make a RuneWord

  1. Items used for RuneWords must be gray text items, normal, exceptional, or Elite. Low Quality, Superior, and Ethereal can be used, but you can not use magical, Rare, Set, Crafted, or Unique items, even if they have the correct number of sockets.
  2. The item must be of the correct type.
  3. The item must have exactly the correct number of sockets (no more).
  4. You must socket the Runes in the correct order.

  • You can check the Rune FAQ for further help.
