Diablo 2 Best Starter Runewords

This list includes Diablo 2 Best Starter Runewords for early-mid level characters. They will greatly simplify levelling, and their main advantage is the availability of new players who have not yet managed to get high-tier runes. You will receive most of these runes for completing quests:

  • The Forgotten Tower (Act I)
  • Hell’s Forge (Act IV)
  • Rescue on Mount Arreat (Act V)

Diablo 2 Rune Farming Guide

Many of the runes you need will drop out during levelling, and the missing ones will be easy to knock out by farming Countess (Act I, Forgotten Tower level 5th in the Black Marsh) or chests in Lower Kurast (Act III).

How to create Runeword, as well as their full list, you can see here. And below you can see the list of Diablo 2 Best Starter Runewords.
