    Are some runes more likely to poof??

    Just lost my only HR, and I was wondering wether HR's are more likely to poof than, fx ist? Are blizzard more focused on HR's than other stuff?

    It'd be handy to know, since my future trades will envolve ists if this is the case.

    any duped item may poof at any time, all forms of perming are a myth
    its best to keep your hrs on a seperate mule that never joins public games

    Any runes Mal and up are likely to poof, except for Guls. ffejrxx was right, only duped runes can poof (I'm pretty sure...), so only the runes you trade for (or dupe yourself :evil:) will poof...thus, mostly traded-for runes Mal and up, excluding Gul...:grin:

    dunno what happened with europe in last few months, but right now its filled with various duped items

    you should particularly be careful with runes higher than vex, sojs, bk rings and any perfect items/runewords

    yes, these can and will all poof

    duped hrs can poof regardless of whether you have 1 or 2 of the same in the same mule

    The only HRs that will never poof are those you find yourself.

    follow this rule : If its duped - Your chance of Poofing is big : The most common traded runes are the 3rd most duped (reason 4?) = ppl relize that other runes are being Duped- thus - they get smart and ask for runes that are (ironically) the most duped. Cuz ppl think that HighRunes are duped
    Highrunes arnt duped very often (at least for me)

    From what I heard, the dupe detection attempts to find 2 runes of the same ID and removes 1 of them. Having 2 of the same run on the same mule drastically increases your chances, doesn't it.

    You're joking, right? The amount of legit HRs is very very small. HRs are duped all the time. Just because it doesn't poof after x amount of games doesn't mean that it is legit.

    if there are 2 identical duped items in a game, the odds of it poofing will be 50%, if 3 identical duped items in a game, the odds of them poofing will be %66

    when ruststorm is run, all but 1 of each dup will poof, odds for each poofing are (100*(n-1)/n)%

    Play single player where the only items that are duped are the ones you dupe yourself. And they won't be poofed even if they are duped!

    But how can you tell that they are from the same source? You simply can't. Hence why I said no 2 of the same rune on the same mule. At least it won't poof because of the other one.
    Why dupe when you can hack? I mean, if you are willing to dupe on SP, might as well go all the way...... (not that I endorse it)

    One thing ive never got, is, if you cube 2 duped runes, is the outcome counted as duped? I mean obviously, all any duper would have to do would be to cube twice the number of runes and cube them, so Im guessing it doesnt, but how about if one of the runes is duped? Does 1 poof and you get the other back? Or would they both poof, just because your legit rune has been "tainted".

    If there was a duped one used, everything made from it will go.

    I still have heard no real proof of this one, especially since there is no way that Blizz can store enough data against someone who dupe and cube repeatively (it will take megabyte or even gigabytes per item to perfectly protect against such methods and varients). The closest thing I can come up with is cryptographic/hashing methods. But those has a probability to delete legit items too (although rather small).

    Who knows, maybe 1 day your legit SoJ might get deleted as well simply because it has a bad hash (although if that does happen......, consider yourself as lucky as finding a high rune).
