    Duped runes are basically Duplicated runes. They were cloned, xeroxed, copied, what have you, and aren't legit. Hackers have done this with different methods throughout the years.

    Botted items are items that were picked up with Bots. Programs that go around Killing things and picking up the loot, or shopping for them.

    Both will get your cd-keys cancelled (at times :rolleyes: ) if caught producing these items. Possessing them won't get you banned, but the runes may disappear.

    Trading on this sites Trade Forums is MUCH easier than online and as long as you read the rules, really shouldn't be as many verbal attacks... those things are taken care of. There's also a Trade Values Forum to help you out.

    Ok, thanks for the reply...

    Is there any way you can tell if a rune is duped before you trade it? And are botted items easily told apart either? I had a guy tell me to ask people to move items around in the trade screen before concluding a deal because he said some guys can somehow pretend to sell you things, so your trade goes, but he keeps his....

    The sad thing is: You can't tell dupes of botted items apart from legit items. That's why they cause so many problems. One thing however you can see:

    Some items may be hacked, this means their stats will altered to make them more powerful, so when you trade for an item make sure you know its approximate stats.
