When dealing with Rune Words in Diablo II: Resurrected, you have a ton of options. Some of the best early game options come from very simple Rune Words when the gear they make is used just right. Knowing how to interact with this system can give you a big boost in power. Diablo II: Resurrected has a lot of complex systems, and you really should learn them. The runewords are incredibly useful once you learn how to use each recipe. This guide will teach you how to make one of the best low-level armors in the game. When making a Runic piece of gear, you need to start with a few things on hand. To do all of this, you need get to level 17, so go level up until you get there. Once you get level 17, you can now make Stealth armor in Diablo 2 Resurrected.
The Stealth armor in Diablo 2 Resurrected is a great piece of kit for leveling as it boosts certain defenses and increases movement speed. This is great for farming zones for low-level drops and rushing bosses in the early stages.
How to make Stealth Armor in Diablo 2 Resurrected
To make Stealth Armor in Diablo 2 Resurrected, you will need the following items:
- Tal Rune
- Eth Rune
- Nonmagic two-socket body armor
To get the Runes, you can actually farm a specific boss. Tal and Eth are both common runes, so if you’re lucky, The Countess will drop one of each the first time you defeat her. You can just keep exiting and entering the game as many times as you want to continually try to get extra drops as well. These runes drop from many other places as well, but farming the Countess is the easiest by far.
The other thing you need is a basic piece of armor. Charsi and Gheed both sell armor, so keep checking their stock until one comes up. If you want to farm for it, go into any part of Act I and start slaying mobs. But really, you should just keep checking Rogue Encampment vendors as it’s much more predictable.
The runeword is TalEth, so you need to socket in the Tal Rune, and then the Eth rune. Any other order than TalEth will not result in a Stealth armor in Diablo II: Resurrected.
