Use The Stealth Runeword in Diablo 2 to Get an Edge Over Everything Around You

Stealth is a Runeword used in body armor and favored by players with low-level characters due to both its low level requirement and the fact that its stats offer something for every class and build out there.

Requirements:

Body Armor with 2 sockets

Runes (in order): Tal + Eth

Required Level: 17

The Stats:

Magic Damage Reduced By 3

+6 To Dexterity

+15 To Maximum Stamina

Poison Resist +30%

Regenerate Mana 15%

25% Faster Run/Walk

25% Faster Cast Rate

25% Faster Hit Recovery

Runes (in order): Tal + Eth

TAL and ETH are common runes. ETH is very common and you receive TAL (plus RAL and ORT) as a quest reward in Act V.

Required Level: 17

Your character can start wearing armor equipped with the Stealth Runeword at the low level of 17. Body armor equipped with the Steal Runeword is very often better compared to the other armors that are available for players around that level.

Poison Resist +30%

A boost to Poison Resist stands this Runeword in good stead due to the fact that the Final SuperUnique of Act 1 is Andariel, whose successful attack not only deals good physical damage, but poisons for quite a high amount of damage as well.

A +30% boost to Poison Resist makes it easier to kill Andariel on Normal Difficulty, before moving on to Act 2.

Regenerate Mana 15%

This is a good mod for all casters, or physical fighters who might not have enough mana to use their skills.

25% Faster Run/Walk

Faster Run/Walk is a mod that makes your character run or walk faster. It is an important mod for PvM (a player mainly concentrating on the game, ie. Players vs. Monsters), as it allows you escape from monsters who prove too powerful for you. It is an even more important mod for PvP (Players dueling with other Players), where being faster allows you to close the distance between yourself and the enemy that is hurling death at you from a far distance (the usual scenario is of melee characters chasing down casters)

25% Faster Cast Rate

This mod is very useful to casters, because it reduces the amount of frames that happens when a caster casts their magical spells and attacks. The less frames required to cast a spell, the less time it takes to cast that spell!

25% Faster Hit Recovery

Good for melee fighters who require more % FHR to break their target breakpoint.

Summary:

Stealth is an attractive Runeword because it is easy to make, it can be used early in the game, and offers something for everybody. What’s not to like?

Big Charms Comes With Big, Charming Bonuses in Diablo 2 – Your Guide to Gheeds

Gheed is the obsequious traveling merchant who takes shelter behind the safe walls of the Rogue Encampment in Act 1. He sells armors and weapons and also offers your characters the chance to Gamble for better equipment.

In honor of Gheed, we have Gheed’s Fortune, a unique Large Charm much desired by Diablo 2 players.

As a unique Large Charm, you may only carry one in your backpack at any one time.

The Stats

Required Level: 62

80-160% Extra Gold From Monsters

Reduces All Vendor Prices 10-15%

20-40% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items

80-160% Extra Gold From Monsters

Gold is used primarily to maintain your weapons and armor, and also for Gambling. Some weapons and armor require an exorbitant amount of gold to repair at the blacksmith, and this is where this nice mod comes into play. With a Gheed’s fortune in your inventory, you will find less difficult to maintain enough gold for fixing your equipment, and for those who are Gambling addicts, this mod is a godsend.

Reduces All Vendor Prices 10-15%

This mod is very attractive to those players who like to spend their gold on Gambling for better equipment.

Players can gamble for better equipment by visiting the merchant in the headquarters for a particular Act. In Act 1, this would be Gheed.

What then happens is that when you select the Gambling option, you will have the opportunity to buy a few choices of items from the merchant. Once you have done so, it goes into your inventory and is immediately identified. There is chance that the item you have bought is a normal Magical item (89.85%), a Rare Item (10%), a Set item (0.10%) or a Unique item (0.05%).

Gheed’s fortune is attractive to players who like to gamble because not only do you get more gold from killing (as explained above), but the items available on the Gambling window are cheaper as well, meaning that you get more bang for your buck!

20-40% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items

Diablo 2 is all about getting the best items for your character. With the right items, your character becomes tougher to kill, is able to deal more damage, and just generally becomes more of a bad-ass.

An MF  (Magic Find) Run in a Diablo 2 game is where players equip their characters with items that offers the mod %Better chance of Getting Magic Items, where a higher % is better in terms of increasing the chances of getting better item drops from unique monsters, but while still being able to dish out decent damage.

Gheed’s Fortune is a fantastic addition when you eventually decide to do your MF Run, especially if you get a near perfect or perfect Gheed (where near perfect would be around 35-40% MF).

Summary:

Gheed’s Fortune is a unique charm highly valued by players who enjoy Gambling (almost all players) and players who enjoy getting better gear by doing MF Runs (all players). The only bad thing that could be said about Gheed’s Fortune is the fact that your character hasn’t found it yet!
