Grief is a runeword consisting of Eth-Tir-Lo-Mal-Ral for five-socketed swords and axes in Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. Though it does not reflect on the character stats, this runeword gives the best damage per second when crafted in a fast-swinging weapon, such as the Phase Blade.

Also, the extra damage it gives to the hero is not a percentage increase. It is a flat increase, leading to a higher value than shown on the screen.
