 Gold is not utilized for trading or setting the cost of Items that are in Diablo 2 Resurrected, and Runes are used instead. The reason is because gold is easy to find, and is only used in gambling with merchants, which isn't very helpful. Runes are, however, are very hard to come by as well as used in the process of make Runewords which are some of the most sought after products in the game.

 When creating a Runeword, its modifiers will most likely be dependent on a roll as well as the final cost for the product will be based on the roll that you will receive. The players will want the perfect Runewords. These are difficult to find and require a lot of crafting. This results in a sink of cash where players use Runes for both trading, and to create new Runewords as a way to make a perfect rolled version of an Runeword.

 It's important to know that while Runes are used as currency, only Runes of a certain level, like that of the Pul Rune (Lvl 45) or higher, can be utilized for trading. It does not mean that the amount of the Rune determines its value, since it is determined by the amount of use the Rune is, as well as supply and demand.

 Multiple Runes of the same type can be combined with an Horadric Cube to create a single Rune with a higher quality, but this can't be done the other way around, meaning that you cannot downgrade Runes to lower levels. The lower level Runes generally require 3 of the identical Rune in order to be played, while higher-level Runes are usually only required two.

 For example, you can blend 3 Lem Runes (Lvl 43) and the Flawed Emerald into a Pul Rune (lvl 45) or combine two Gul Runes (Lvl 53) and a Ruby into the Vex Rune (Lvl 55).

 Players will usually talk about HR, or High Runes, when setting the price of items in the late game. High Runes consist of beginning with Ist Rune (Lvl 51) all the way to the Zod Rune (Lvl 69) There are also lower levels Runes consisting of Lem (Lvl 43) all the way to Mal (Lvl 49) are also used for trading at lower levels.

 The price of Runes vary from time to time, but here is a table that can serve as a rough estimate of the value that each High Rune. Since Ist is The first High Level rune, I'll use its value as a reference.

 These values can be converted to the Rune which you currently possess in order to trade. So, for example, if you have a 2 Ohm, which is roughly 5 or 6 Ist, you could trade them for 1 Lo Rune that costs between 10 and 12 Ist.

 While playing Diablo 2 Resurrected there is a huge quantity of equipment in your quests. And as a new player it may be difficult to determine an item's value and whether the item is worth keeping. This typically leads to hoarding numerous items that you never sell, because you are uncertain of the value of them. To avoid this, you should consider the item's rarity, usefulness and roll value to determine if it's worth keeping or not.

 Unique Items set Items and Runewords

 Unique Items, Set Items and Runewords all have fixed modifiers, and they only differ based on their roll values. Therefore, they generally have prices which only change based on certain rolls. There are several various ways to find out the current price of one of these items:

 It is possible to check out on the Rune as well as the Item Values Page on our Wiki for an estimate of the item's price. Use the search feature to search by name, sort, rarity or value or any other key word.

 You can inquire in the chat to know the value in the price of your item. Make sure to ask at least one other person for more accurate estimates.

 You can participate in an exchange game and find out what other players are willing to pay for the item that you currently have.

 It's important to note that only significant modifiers are considered to determine whether an item is "perfect play". Let's consider an example of the Spirit Runeword on a shield for an example. Three different modifiers could be subject to a roll when creating one. They are:

 Faster Cast Rate between 25 and 35%

 Mana: 89 - 112

 Magic Absorb 3-8

 In this specific instance the most important role is Faster Cast Rate, and an Spirit Shield with 35% FCR is considered to be an ideal roll, without having to consider the other options, such as Mana as well as Magic Absorb. Mana is still important, but it will not have an enormous impact on the Spirit Shield Price as long it is 35% Faster Cast Rate. Anything less than 35 percent on FCR is no more considered to be perfect, and even if it's an 112-mana mana value and holds 8 Magic absorb, it is not worth as much as an 89 mana 3 Magic absorb.

 Always examine the rolls of your items before selling them. Perfect rolled ones can be worth more than their value. For The Spirit Shield, a normal roll may be worth 0.5 1 Ist. While the perfect one is worth about 2 x 4 Ist.

 Rare, Magic and General Modifiers

 Rare and Magical Items are harder to evaluate because the majority of the time, they don't have fixed prices. This is because certain modifiers are good as a modifier for a class Build or very good in general. The more usages an item has the more potential buyers and thus increase the price.

 A Small Charm that provides +Life is useful for all classes and any type of build, which makes it a highly useful item. In contrast Small Charms that have +Max Damage is only suitable for melee builds. It is still valuable, but has much less demand and therefore a lower cost. Another example is an example of a Grand Charm that provides +1 Paladin Defensive Auras vs another charm that grants +1 Paladin Combat Skills. While both provide +1 to a Paladin Tree, one of them, the Combat Skills one is much higher priced because the majority of Paladin Builds are made around using the Combat Tree.

 When you've considered this, it is important to first look at the item modifiers and determine whether this item is suitable for all classes or a specific class, or even a specific design.

 Another kind of Item you could wish to keep for trading is Runeword Bases. There is a constant search for bases to use with their Runewords, and they usually overpay when they need to craft something. A four socket Monarch Shield is a great example, as it can be used to create an Spirit Runeword.

 If trade is not your preference, or you simply want to keep things simple, the best option is to concentrate on the most well-known items and getting rid of everything else. There are some items which are frequently in the market, making them easy to trade as well as to determine their worth. Here is a link to our wiki with a list of the most traded items and their worth.

 Another alternative to trading is to use basic currency items such as Gems, Jewels, Uber Keys Essences, Gems or lower-tier Runes.


 Perfection Gems: These gems are used in many Horadric Cube crafting recipes making them extremely important. You could usually trade 40 gems that are perfect of any type to get an Ist. Amethysts, rubies, or Skulls are more valuable, and you can trade 20 gems of the same sort to acquire an Ist.

 Gems (Magic as well as Rare) Like Gems, Jewels can be used to create jewelry. A set of forty jewels can be worth the price of an Is

 Lower Level Runes The following Runes are also useful for crafting. A group of 20 runes from the same kind could be exchanged in exchange for an Ist: Ral -- Sol Sol Amn - Nef Tal Tal

 While playing the Ladder pricing of your items will greatly depend on the time in the year. Knowing the way this works can generate a substantial profit, as long as you know what you are doing.

 At the beginning of each Ladder, players will mostly concentrate on obtaining basic items to begin farming and virtually none of them are doing PVP. In the middle portion of the ladder, fewer players are farming, and more are focused on PVP.

 Therefore, items like Shako, War Travelers or Viper Magi could be worth something at the start of the season, but they will end up being worthless within a couple of weeks. Take advantage of this and ask for a higher level Rune in exchange for those items. High-level Runes have little value when the game is in its beginning season, and players are likely to trade them in order to get their characters up and running. Once the initial rush is completed, those high Runes will be much more valuableand will bring you an incredible profit at the same time.

 Another way to earn money through the Ladder is by farming a specific type of content such as Uber Keys , or Tokens or Tokens of Absolution. These items are always in the market, so you can stock up on them without worrying about whether they'll depreciate in value.

 There are two primary ways to trade with people One is to talk to them in the chat channel or chat room, the other is to join a gaming and trade there. Trade channels are packed with players , and usually they'll offer items to trade in the window for you to check, if there's anything you're looking for, ask the price.

 Because the space for wording is constrained the players are often using acronyms, both in chat and game names.

 For instance, a user who wants to purchase an Stone of Jordan and is currently paying 1 Vex rune is likely to put in the form: "WTB SOJ 1 VEX". A different example could be a user that wants to exchange 2 Mal runes to get 1 Ist rune. This could result in the game "WTT 2MAL 4 IIST"

 How do you complete an exchange

 Let's imagine you are offered a Stone of Jordan for 1 Vex Rune and you're interested. Whisper to that player and tell him that you'll design a game"SOJ1," for example "SOJ1" so he can join in the exchange.

 Make your game. Ensure that the difficulty setting is in normal and that the level difference is not active. This is important because the player could have a second player with a lower level. Wait until the player joins and then click on him to wait for him has accepted your request for trade.

 When he is accepted, a new window will appear displaying the screen for trading on the left and you're inventory to the left. Drag the items that you're dealing from your collection onto the screen for trading, (in this instance, a Rune) and wait for him to do the same in the trade window of his own. Be sure to click on the items he's offering (a Stone of Jordan in this instance) before you complete the trade. If everything seems to be fine, press the check icon on the bottom of the screen. Wait for the other participant to confirm the transaction. If he agrees, the window will end and the items you traded for will appear in your inventory.

 While it might seem simple but there are a variety of methods scammers employ to fool you into making a bad deal. The most well-known method is to swap the item with an alternative that is exactly the identical. For example he might swap an item called the Stone of Jordan for a mysterious ring that is of the same appearance. The game blocks the trade for a few of seconds each time an item is traded, however, you must always confirm the exchange before hitting on the button to check.

 Another technique used by scammers is to place the same item , but using a different price. For instance, you may prefer to buy an Spirit Shield that has 35% FCR and then he swaps it for another Spirit Shield with 25 FCR of 25 percent. If you don't pay close attention, you may be scammed and end up losing a lot of money.
