It can give you a mana boost, all skills +3, a faster caster rate, bonuses against demons, and so on. But getting HOTO runes is not a simple process. If you want, you can come to MMOWTS to buy Diablo 2 Resurrected Items, which is the fastest way, but for players who don’t want to spend extra money, MMOWTS will also introduce other ways.
How to get Heat of the Oak Runeword (HOTO)?
To get HOTO, you need a non-magic stave or mace with 4 sockets and 4 runes - Ko, Vex, Pul, and Thul. The best option is to try to get staff is trying to get a Gnarled or Battle Staff that can drop on any difficulty. Even if you find them without 4 sockets, you can complete the Larzuke quest in Act V and bring them to 4 sockets.
The same system applies to maces, the first one you find is flail. It must be level 26, so you should be able to get them in Act IV of normal difficulty or higher. One of the most popular places for farming is Secret Cow level, so if you are interested, you can check it out.
Thul is a relatively low-level rune, you can obtain it by farming The Countess in Forgotten Tower on Nightmare difficulty. You can obtain Ko and Pul from Act IV on Nightmare difficulty.
Vex rune is the part you need to worry about when making HOTO, it is very difficult to grind. But if you are very lucky, you can even get them randomly through Hell difficulty. Some players said that they can drop from The Pit or Cow level of Hell difficulty. The best way is to use 2 Gul runes and 1 Ruby to convert it into Vex.
Once you have a staff or mace with 4 sockets and corresponding runes. Follow the order of Ko, Vex, Pul and Thul into the socket. Your character needs to be at least level 65 to use it.
