In the world of casters, the Heart Of The Oak (HOTO) runeword is extremely popular because, when used properly, it provides a plethora of useful bonuses to all classes and builds, particularly when fighting demons. The exception to this is that maces cannot be used to create this weapon; instead, any mace or staff class weapon can be used to create it. Flails are extremely popular among players who want to use their other hand as a shield because they can be wielded with just one hand. Flails are particularly useful for this purpose because of their shape. Using a 4-socket staff with the perfect set of modifiers will save you time and money if you're playing as a Sorceress. Instead of using the staff you already have, you'll want to create a Heart Of The Oak staff.
Heart of the Oak's runeword KoVexPulThul can only be correctly spelled out if the base weapon has exactly four sockets, which can only be achieved by using a base weapon with exactly four sockets in the game. Always keep in mind that you must add the runes to the weapon in the exact same order that they were received, or else you will be unable to obtain Heart Of The Oak from the chest. Begin with the Ko rune and work your way through the Vex rune, the Pul rune, and finally the Thul rune to complete the sequence.
Only flails found in Act IV Normal and later will have a chance to have four sockets, but you can find a normal flail and add sockets using the Horadric Cube (only flails found in Act IV Normal and later will have a chance to have four sockets), or you can use Larzuk after completing the Siege of Harrogath quest line in Act V. Flails with four sockets can be found anywhere in Act IV Normal and later, or you can find a normal
Given that it first appears in Act IV on Normal difficulty and then continues to appear throughout the game, Thul is by far the most straightforward of the HOTO runes to locate. Thul is the most straightforward of the HOTO runes to locate. Following Ko, which is the most straightforward of the three characters, but it is significantly more difficult to locate than the previous two. It starts dropping during Act II on the Nightmare difficulty; however, you'll have a better chance of finding it at the Hellforge on either the Nightmare or Hell difficulties, or receiving it from The Countess on either difficulty if you play on the Nightmare difficulty. Although Pul behaves similarly when playing Nightmare, it does not begin to drop until the fourth act of the game. In addition, Vex is extremely difficult to come by in large quantities, especially in the United States. The Countess or Hellforge will not give you the D2R item, so you'll have to wait for a random drop somewhere on Hell difficulty to appear.
