    You see, Diablo II is filled with evil, self-centered people who's job is to make your D2 experience ****tier than theirs. Everyone wants to be the best, and it's to the point of paying upwards of 2 or 3 dollars PER RUNE.

    Your rune disappeared because it was a dupe, and B.Net could give 2 ****s less if your duped rune poofed. Same with most people on B.Net, actually.

    The truth is that there is virtually no way to keep your runes safe, other than to find them on your own. And good luck with that, as the normal currency in the game has switched over to the rarest items. A stupid move made by stupid, greedy players. I don't believe runes were meant to be currency, but they are.

    In the end you must realize that it's only a game, and you might want to move on with your life because there are people out there that forget that, and make it their life. Sure, they have the best items 10x over on every char, and they can beat you in PvP. But who cares? Behind that arrogant "n00b stfu" attitude is probably just some rich little prick with no friends, and all the time in the world to spend wasting time clicking a mouse in front of a keyboard in a game that was made for greedy self righteous pricks like himself.

    And those are my thoughts on the subject. Someone please flame me and tell me I'm wrong because I really care.

    Peace,

    Well, the above post is a little harsh, but your runes did "poof" because they were created by a process we call duping. They were not found in game but created by messing with the server and exploiting some bugs in the Diablo code. When the game figures this out, it will delete the runes from your inventory. It may take a day or a week, but they will disappear if they are not legit (most likely).

    One recommendation I have for you is to not trade for high runes, which makes almost all of the higher runewords unavailable. Or, make sure you get whatever socketed item you want to use before you get the high runes. Socket the runes immediately when you get them before leaving the game and they may stick around much longer. Keep in mind, that this is NOT full-proof. All duped runes will eventually disappear.

    Good luck

    You should've socketed them immediately.
    If you managed to get both hrs, you should've managed to get an armor as well.

    It is usuall best to go in this order

    1. Get the item you want the r/w to be in
    2. find/trade for the runes in the order they come in the r/w
    eg making hoto (ko,vex,pul,thul) get a ko put it in the socket, get a vex put it in the socket...and so on
    3. your item is made and no poofing

    Perming is a myth.

    People think you can perm by going into the trade window then immediately exiting the game.

    Perming only exsists in Duper heaven.

    Perming is indeed a myth just like the previous post says.
