This chapter will give you information about all those items in the game that you can't wear. It also has information about magic related items. However, for information about the actual spells, how they work and their use, see chapter 4. Books and most oils consist of a base item type, book of and oil of listed in the table below. Each book then has a spell assigned to it and oils have an oil type assigned.
|Book of||-||2, 8, 14, 20|
Runes and oils were introduced in Hellfire and do not exist in Diablo. Runes are placed in the dungeons and when a monster or player walks over them the spell is released. They can also be used directly on a target. Oils are used on items to boost their properties. Note that only effects from oils that affect the durability are carried over when you start a new game.
|Rune of Fire||100||1||Casts Fireball||No requirement|
|Rune of Lightning||200||3||Casts Lightning Wall||Requires 13 magic|
|Rune of Stone||300||7||Casts Stone Curse||Requires 25 magic|
|Greater Rune of Fire||400||7||Casts Immolation||Requires 42 magic|
|Greater Rune of Lightning||500||7||Casts Nova||Requires 42 magic|
1Runes can be found in the dungeon or bought from Adria.
2Actually not the exact spell but one that is similar to the listed one. It is the player's level that effects the damage/duration of the runes.
Oils might need some more explanation. They are created by the game in two different ways. You won't see that as a player and there is actually no difference in how they work depending on how they were created. The first three oils in the list below actually exist as a single base item. All other oils, including also versions of the first three ones, are created as a base item oil of to which an oil type is then assigned, just like spell books. They are listed below the thick line.
