Runewords are a very important resource of d2r items in Diablo 2 Resurrected that present quite a few bonuses to your character. But their real value is because you get to choose which bonuses you get by choosing which runeword to apply to your socketed gear.
Ancient’s Pledge is one of them. It can be applied to Shields and is composed of three Runes. Runewords convert Armor or Weapons into Unique Equipment once the required amount of Runes is placed in the correct order, granting said item a fixed set of properties. So keep reading on as we discuss how to get the Ancients Pledge Runeword in Diablo 2 resurrected.
Once you have completed Rescue on Mount Arreat in Act V, you will gain the correct runes to complete the Ancients Pledge. Ancients Pledge needs the runeword combination ‘Ral Ort Tal’ in that order.
Tal and Ral can be farmed from the Countess boss in Act I The Forbidden Tower. You have a chance of Tal or Ral dropping from the Hellforge in Act IV. These runes also have a small drop chance all throughout Act III.
Ort is a little harder. This can be gained in Act 4 from the Countess at the nightmare level and above. Or, you can probably transmute 3x Ral runes into one Ort rune by using the Horadric Cube.
To create the runeword, you will need to be at level 21 and have a 3-socket shield. The order in which you apply runes is important. Put Ral in the topmost socket, Ort in the middle, and Tal in the bottom. While it does not provide anything that outstanding, it can raise resistance. This simple method can come into its own when you are in Hell and Nightmare.
