Some gear has these numbers. It says Minor Rune of xxx (0/2)
(1) Does something.
(2) Does something better.

Does this mean this item has a rune? If so, does it mean you need to have two of those runes on this piece of gear to get the second effect?

1 Answer 1


(0/2) means that you have 0 out of a possible 2 of these runes equipped. When you have 1 of these runes equipped you will get the bonus listed under (1), and when you have 2 equipped you will get the bonus listed under (2) as well.

For instance, from your screenshot you have an item that has a Minor Rune of Hoelbrak in it. If you were to equip it, you would get an extra 10 power because you now have one of this rune equipped. If you were to then equip a pair of boots with another of these runes in it you will get an extra 10% Might Duration for equipping those boots.

  • So if you have two runes, do you get both effects? Or just (2)? Aug 30, 2012 at 2:36

    Both effects. It's similar to a "set" rune

  • So is this to encourage people to double up on runes? Do all runes have (2) affixes or do some have more/less?

  • @Emerica.: You can do what you like with them. I believe there are some that have more than 2 (up to 6), but I don't think I've seen any with just 1. In fact, I've heard people recommend not going all the way to 6 with some runes. It just depends what the bonuses are and what you actually need. Aug 30, 2012 at 12:29
  • @Emerica.: I stand corrected. I've just picked up a sigil without any set bonus, so they do exist also. Aug 30, 2012 at 12:50
