Breath of Dying?

Hi, i traded myself a six socketed Phase Blade! Now my question is if i can make a Breath of Dying of it? I checked diabloii.net runewords info, and I didn't find anything there. On the picture of Breath of dying it says Colossus Blade, so I got insecure if i really can make a Breath of dying with a six socketed Phase Blade.

well not a waste per se but eth weapons usually have higher damages so ppl like to use those for BOTD, since BOTD is indestructible anyways.

BTW make sure whatever weapon u are using is a nonmagical one (ie, white instead of blue). You can't make runewords out of blue stuff.

Grey text means that it's either Ethereal, socketable or both. Magic items are blue. You're right. ;P

I think that it would be waste to socket it in a Phase Blade, especially because it's not ethereal (since Ethereal items usually have higher damage, and that Zod, logically, renders them immune to durability loss, therefore your item lives forever.) I think you should find a nice Ethereal CB with the most damage so that your runes aren't wasted.

There's a cube recipe (Socketed Item + Hel + Scroll of Town Portal, perhaps) to removed all runes, gems and jewels socketed in a socketed item, but you lose everything except for the item with its sockets (without what's in them.)

Remember, the order matters when you place the runes. If you mess up on the first rune, don't be scared to use a Hel to remove it if the rune isn't too big. =P

Thx for information! Soon I'll be getting my self a nice ethreal cb BOTD,,,, :)
I'm sorry but I just have to ask... It seems you are pretty new to the game if you're not even sure if a weapon is normal or magical. My question is, how in the world were you able to get the runes for a BOTD, the rarest runes in the game. If I read your post incorrectly and you really meant that you will now begin your search for the runes to make the BOTD, you have quite a long journey ahead of you (and that's an understatement).

Probably has friends who gave him the runes, like my friends did when I first started playing.

El and Eld the rarest runes in the game?! :p

That Zod is irritatingly hard to find though...

I'm surprised no one asked you what kind of character are you and what skills are you using? There are certain attack speed breakpoints that most people want to hit when doing a certain attack. Furthermore, it matters on the character & the skill since some skills calculate by total Increased Attack Speed (IAS) and some go by Weapon IAS only.

So... what's your char and what skills are you using, and ultimately what equipment will you have on them?
