    Eth base items for caster runewords

    Hi, just wondering if eth crystal swords or flails are worth more than regular ones when making certain runewords, such as cta, hoto, spirit, and such. The reqs on an eth crystal sword is 33str and no dex, so pretty much anyone can equip it, the reason im wondering if its any good, is because pretty much anyone can equip the regular one as well.

    I know some people like the "cool factor" of an eth weapon, but i'd hate to wait around for someone like that to be able to sell such a weapon :p

    So, are they generally worth more than regular ones? just cant imagine anyone actually depending on it being eth

    thanks for any info :)

    Some people like to use ethereals for the style. There are not many people willing to pay more for runeword in eth and those whou are will want a perfect one. For example noone will pay more for HOTO in eth flail if its not perfect (40 res).

    There's a difference between selling it with a runeword and without a runeword, of course.

    You can sell them for a bit more, maybe by 50%-100%. The lower the value in comparison to the runes, the less important the price difference will be for the buyer.

    To equip my Hammerdin with a nice eth HoTo I traded a eth flail 4 sox for a very good crafted amu.

    After the trade the guy asked if I was insane to trade of a "godly" amu for just a flail...

    Guess I am insane :)
