    If you could design a build around one runeword...

    What runeword would it be and what would it go into?

    A friend told me that he would give me the runes to make any runeword I wanted, and I want to build something slightly unique around a cool runeword.

    Hit me with some cool builds!

    Last Wish!

    Then snicker mischievously and make a bunch of other runewords, or actually make it and hope blizzard brings the Ubers to single player in 1.14. :crazyeyes:

    i've been wanting to make a wrath strafer for a long while. that would get my vote. probably in a non zon bow so i could put it on other characters afterward too.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far, keep 'em coming!

    This seems interesting, but all you can use is the normal attack in bearform right?

    Wow, that seems awesome but...seems almost too easy once you get all that stuff equipped. Very intriguing though.

    I would like to try a warcry barbarian. I don't know if that is my number one choice, for I assume I would tire of him somewhat quickly, but I would love to have "Enigma" and give it a whirl (or not whirl, as the case may be...).

    I actually thought about a WC barbarian first since I have like 13 Wizardspikes, but the repetitiveness was a big turn off for me.

    It's a very safe character, but from what I understand the killing speed drops off quite sharply in hell.

    I'm currently making a Sept (one character from each class) using an 'Ice' bow. Only finished the Barb so far (because as per usual I got distracted by something else), but I was surprised how effective he proved to be. I thought the damage would be too low for acts 4 and 5 in Hell, but it wasn't.

    Hmmm, what bow did you put it in? Crusader? Shadow?

    I have almost no experience with Amazons, so the ins and outs of bows are a mystery to me.

    If I wasn't playing vanilla expansion, I would choose to make a scythe Infinity and build a ES, Nova sorc around that. It was by far the most fun character I played on the realm.

    Diamond Bow. Not my choice, it was an item given to me by someone else. Have a read of my Pat thread to see what I did with it, and what a couple of other people suggested.

    If you want some fun with bows, I suggest a Strafer. Can be a real power character with the right gear, and is still viable with rubbish. Has the same advantage as a Zeal, Frenzy, Fury, Fend, Jab, and Dragon Talon: multiple quick attacks. In partiucular, a Strafer with 100% Pierce (achievable with a couple of the unique bows or Razortail unique belt) is a stack of fun.

    Awesome, great read. Ice seems very interesting, and I may give it a try.

    Re: If you could design a build around one runeword...

    It is interesting, but difficult to obtain (requires a Jah). Most people with Jah would tend to prioritise other rune words which are far more useful to more characters, like Enigma and Faith. I only have it because I was gifted it. It has a particular appeal to me because I favour bow wielders over all other characters.

    Harmony + Enchant = gg. Either Blizz or Orb to slow down enemies, the revived Urdars beat them silly.

    It's such a great idea, why haven't I made one before... :grin:

    Infinity with a FN/FB sorc, cause why not?

    I feel you.

    I wanted to make a Bramble rabies druid, because poison is cool. But if I could pick ANY runeword that works for more builds, I would go with Beast - could make awsome builds with any char and its got mad stylepoints.
