    Maybe it was a dupe. Most likely.

    Yeah,Rust Storm ate it most probably.You should be careful when trading runes.If the guy offers large numbers of runes chances are they are duped.Also if he offers runes at suspiciously low price-same thing.If he uses the leet language-I'd say don't trade.If you want to make a big runeword,wait for a while to be sure that the runes don't disappear.It will be bad if one duped rune spoils the whole thing.I waited for more than a month before completing Doom-all of the runes were traded at TCs.

    I just traded for my first ever high rune which was a Ber today. I left the game and went in a few and it was still there. Well about an hour later poof its gone. This was my only ever high end anything and I was so excited about being close to make a godly runeword. I guess I learned my lesson and should have been suspecius that he told me to enter a private game with him. There were a few others in the game also. Oh well after that the gods of diablo gave me a sympathy gift of a Stormshield which I also never had b4. Thanks Brem.

    dont socketables lose their item codes once socketed into an item? or did they change that? Anyone here have runes disappear from WITHIN an item? I know duel mod max dmg jewels got ripped out, but since that was ALL of them for some reason, that may have just been a check for additional +20 or something max dmg.

    my rule is, don't trade for high runes, because what happend to most of you all will happen,
    OR
    trade high runes ONLY with your friends that you actually trust and know that they found them
    OR
    put them into an armor/weapon/etc as soon as you get them, to prevent them from dispearing (have the other runes for the rune word ready, and place them as soon as you get the high one u need)

    i would think most people would know that there was a massive rune dupe, and that 95% of runes will disapear from the rust storm,.

    to me its not worth the disapointment of having one disapear to get that enigma, i'm just trying to find the runes on my own, or cubing up
    just have a ber rune to go, whooo who!

    DITTO DITTO DITTO.

    Even with the people I trust I do not take my chances. I put the runes in the socketable item as soon as I get them. The way I usually do it is trade for the runes in order of the rune sequence so that I could just add them even though I can't complete the entire runeword.

    Unfortunately, this is the only true safe way to keep high runes from "poofing"...unless you actually found the rune yourself.

    Fatmantan, sorry about your loss.
