Question on runeword level requirement

I wanted to make a runeword as midlevel weapon for a char, but diabloii.net stated no level requirement for it. Does that mean the weapon's level req will be the RW's req level? Or the runes'?

If rune requierement > weapon requierement, it will be the runes's. If weapon requierement > Rune requierement, it will be weapon's.

Thanks. Already suspected that, but wanted to be sure. Those runes don't come easy...

That's why an HONOR runeword in an eth lance is a very strong performer mid-game because the reqs for an eth lance is ~ 25 and within the dex and str range for an act2 merc. The runeword level req is ~ 27/28 so he can almost use it right away.

Whereas STONE runeword has a level req of ~ 47 but if you make it in an eth Sacred armor then an act2 merc can't use it for many levels beyond 47 because of level and dex/str reqs.

Stone's minimum cLvl req will be 47 (Um rune being the higest rune in Stone having that cLvl req)

If made in an eth Sacred Armor the "minimum" cLvl req would be 66. (The cLvl req for SA's) Although putting it on at that lvl could prove troublesome :p
