How to Make Stealth Armor in Diablo 2 Resurrected

Diablo 2 Resurrected Stealth armor is one of the best pieces of armor you can craft, though getting it takes a bit of work.

You'll need to farm an early boss to gather the necessary runes, then make use of Diablo 2's Runewords system to create the enchanted gear. Here's where to find the runes and what makes stealth armor so good. The stat boosts make it worth the brief time rune farming takes, and it's even a good choice to take into battle against Andariel, Duriel, Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal.

Stealth armor requires the Tal and Eth runes, which, unsurprisingly, make the TalEth Runeword when combined. The Countess is your best bet for getting these runes. She occupies the bottom floor of the Forgotten Tower and drops both runes fairly often.

As with most Diablo 2 bosses, there's no guarantee you'll get what you're after. Leave the area and come back for The Countess to respawn, and try again.

Crafting stealth armor is just a matter of putting the runes in, so you'll need a set of armor with two slots. Use Tal first, then Eth to form the word. Runewords only work if the runes are slotted in the correct order. If you use Eth first and it doesn't work, that's why.

Here's what you get in return:

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
