New Runewords in Patch 2.4 PTR [Diablo 2: Resurrected]
As a part of improving mercenaries overall and Act 1 Rogue Archer particularly, Blizzard decided to allow making Insight runeword in Bows and Crossbows. That also should make elemental Amazons to level up easier.
Great runeword for Act5 Barbarian Warriors when hired by players with Rabies or Plague Javelin skills - Lower Resists curse is the only one that lowers poison resistance. Also it is great alternative if player doesn't have runes for Infinity.
Starter claw, good to level up melee assassin since they received a buff as well.
Good bow if no runes for Faith, but might be better to save Cham for Pride.
5. Unbending Will:
Very cheap runes inside, can use in Executioner's Sword as soon as found on Nightmare difficulty (will get 6 sockets from Larzuk's quest). Probably, Blizzard created it to use by Act5 Barbarian Warriors but Taunt doesn't look much useful.
Great alternative to many sorceress items, only problem is Zod rune. But if you found a Staff with +3 to one-three skills that you use, that means you've got +7 total while Heart of the Oak + Spirit give only +5. And you don't have to invest mass strength to wear Monarch.
7. Flickering Flame:
Can be good when you need fire resists and using Fire skills on same time, for example when using Spirit shield.
Looks like useful starter item for Bowazons. Offering piercing attack till Razortail is found. Cannot be frozen and Mana leech are good bonuses to that.
