    Don't know if this has been done before but - Frequency of runes in rune words

    Ok, so I got bored one day, and decided to make a list of all the runes needed to make at least 1 of every rune word in 1.09, 1.10, and total for both patches. I saw some interesting things in rune placements, as well as how many were used in total. One thing I would've liked to see would be more of a balance of equipment being able to be made with rune words, as well as the quality of runes for them (some runewords use too many high level runes).

    Of the 170 supposed rune words that should be in the game, only a total of 44 are available.

    Frequency of Runes in 1.09 Rune Words:
    El 3
    Eld 1
    Tir 7
    Nef 5
    Eth 7
    Ith 3
    Tal 4
    Ral 4
    Ort 4
    Thul 2
    Amn 3
    Sol 4
    Shael 2
    Dol 3
    Hel 2
    Io 3
    Lum 3
    Ko 2
    Fal 1
    Lem 1
    Pul 0
    Um 0
    Mal 1
    Ist 1
    Gul 1
    Vex 1
    Ohm 0
    Lo 0
    Sur 0
    Ber 0
    Jah 1
    Cham 0
    Zod 0

    Frequency of Runes in 1.10 Rune Words:
    El 1
    Eld 2
    Tir 2
    Nef
    Eth 2
    Ith 1
    Tal
    Ral 2
    Ort 2

    Vex 3
    Ohm 6
    Lo 2

    Useful info for me, helps to decide which higher level runes that I can upgrade without regreting later. I have quite a number of high level runes that I want to upgrade to a BER.

    It takes 32 Guls to make Ber. Good luck. I eventually will cube a Ber too, through trading and hellforge quests.

    Yeap, not to mention the one I have on Enigma :)

    Crushing Blow is one of the best mod in 1.10 IMO. I wanted to get one just to feel back the empty hole in my rune fullhouse. I think I still have 2 SURs, couple of Lo's to get there.

    Thanks for compiling this. At least we now know that every rune can be used in *something*...

    Hehe, interesting...

    Some runes seem to be much more useful than some others, Ber, Ohm, Ist, Um...they are used in many runewords, not like Gul which is useful for one runeword only (Fury)

    Something else worth looking at is which runes are the highest rune in a runeword. Generally they are more sought after because if you have the highest one you're a pretty good chance to have the lower ones ("oh no I can't make Enigma because I haven't got an Ith!")

    In 1.09:
    Tir 1
    Nef 1
    Ith 1
    Tal 1
    Ral 1
    Ort 3
    Amn 2
    Sol 2
    Shael 1
    Io 2
    Lum 2
    Ko 1
    Fal 1
    Lem 1
    Mal 1
    Vex 1
    Jah 1

    In 1.10:
    Lem 1
    Um 3
    Mal 1
    Ist 1
    Gul 1
    Vex 1
    Ohm 3
    Sur 1
    Ber 3
    Jah 2
    Cham 2
    Zod 1

    Spot the difference :rolleyes:
    Not going to bother combining them because they hardly overlap at all.
