What rune words can I build at lower levels?

  • I started a new ladder character and am beginning to find random runes in Act II (Normal). What rune words can I reasonably find runes for and create while I'm still in Normal?

    I know of Stealth (TalEth), but the words on the Arreat Summit aren't listed by level, rather alphabetically. Is there a handy reference that lists them all by max rune level?

    One of the best low/mid level runes imo is Stealth for your merc armor (ShaelUmPulLum) and Spirit(TalThulOrtAmn) for your own shield/weapon (if you are a caster). Duress(ShaelUmThul) is another good choice for merc armor that's fairly easy to get. Make sure you put it into an ethereal armor as merc armor does not degrade.
