So this has been asked many times here, so I'm making this quide to show how it works :)

I went to this site. Quote is from post #3.

Quote
1) Download this file: https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B_MKcrNsKcK6Zjg2NzYwOTMtYTQ3OC00M2FmLTliYzgtMTNlZDcyMTAyNzcx&hl=en

2) Place it in the "Diablo II\data\global\excel" folder so that it looks something like this: Diablo II\data\global\excel\Runes.txt (note: you will need to create these folders)

3) Add -direct -txt to the shortcut command-line so that it looks something like this: "C:\Diablo II\Diablo II.exe" -direct -txt

4) Try out the runeword to see if it works. If it didn't work, close the game using the Task Manager... do NOT exit the game normally or it will save the lost runes.


This is the direct link to download the runes file:

Follow the instructions really carefully to get this to work. here's a picture of how I did it:




The lower screenshot is from my desktop shortcut.
the "-window" is not needed if you want to play fullscreen, so you can ignore that.

Or you can just type -w instead of -window, works too.

While you are enabling Ladder rune words in SP, you might want to enable a few rune words which the developers apparently forgot to enable in 1.11.
The supported item types and complete rune word stats can be viewed here. Note that these two are not even Ladder Words.

    h2h: (Assassin Only) Claw Class weapon
    weap: weapon

In the Runes.txt file (from step 1) all you need to do is put a 1 in the complete column in the rows of Pattern and Plague.
Save the file and proceed with steps 2)-4).

Anyway if you show up with "new" runewords in a wt ppl will most likely call you a cheater. :p

Pattern and Plague appeared to be done in 1.11, and if only Blizzard weren't so lazy , both would have been available on the realms for nearly a decade by now. ^^

Well, you might also argue that enabling Ladder rune words off-realm or extending the stash size are means of cheating, although not severe.
I say the creator of a walkthrough defines a set of rules from the very beginning, and progress is then judged by everyone else on that basis.
It works just fine.
