Stealth Runeword - D2R 2.6
Tal + Eth
2 Socket Body Armor
Stealth is a cornerstone of Diablo II speedrunning. It is accessible very early in the game and accelerates the pace of your game progression. Faster Run/Walk will reduce the amount of time travelling between objectives and in town. Faster Cast Rate is also very beneficial to all caster classes – many classes will continue to use Stealth while clearing Hell if a better option (Que-Hegan’s Wisdom, Skin of the Vipermagi) isn’t available since FCR does not naturally spawn on body armor. Even the 25% Faster Hit Recovery is not inconsequential in the early-game, especially if you are attempting to push through game content with low life and resistances.
2-socket armor bases can be acquired very easily from a vendor. Most players will farm normal countess and run it a few times to find Tal + Eth. Stealth can usually be replaced once a Spirit Monarch has been obtained.
If you'd rather skip farming you can quickly buy D2R Items from our D2R Store.
