    If you had only one Ber rune.....

    as I now find myself with, what rune word would you make with it? Chains of Honor? Beast? Anything else? Advice, please. (No I will not accept 'give it to me!' as a valid answer.)

    legit or traded for?

    If I had one atm, I would make myself an enigma... need both enigma and CoH, but with enigma on my MF'er it will be faster to find the wealth needed for CoH ;)

    I think I'd also make an enigma if I had a single ber to use (provided I also had a jah), most likely in a mage plate so that multiple characters could use it :)

    Give it to m....... oh wait.

    Depends on if it's legit or not. If I had a legit ber rune I'd definitely make a legit beast or CoH. Or maybe I'd hold onto it and see if I could cube up a 2nd legit hr for more options. If it's just a random one that's traded for then I'd either use it for a runeword or trade it for something I need.

    You'll get a lot more value out of making a CoH. Beast isn't really all that useful for many builds on its own. Coh works very well on any character that needs +skills, or resists, or even physical damage PvM.

    I think Chains of Honour enables many builds, bit like Fortitude. Beast would rock the boat for all kinds of wacky bear sorcs etc. Don't save for Enigma, it's a boring armour. Infinity is an option as well, but more geared towards perfecting already powerful builds. I would make CoH or Beast.

    Unfortunately that's just going to put you into a continuous loop of giving it to yourself, then giving it to yourself, then giving it to yourself, etc. You'd never actually get to use it!

    Re: If you had only one Ber rune.....

    I would make enigma, If I already have that then Chains of Honor, and if I have that then.... Not sure. Problem is I have quite a few high runes saved over the years but they are non ladder, I have nothing yet on ladder. So anything I get will be used for trade to make enigma for my mf hammer.

    A "boring" armor? What is that supposed to mean? Do you not think that any player who has never had such an armor before would enjoy it immensely? The first time I had an enigma on my summoner was the best d2 moment I'd had in a very long time.

    What an arrogance to call such quality gear "boring". Blergh.

    Also, infinity isn't about "perfecting already powerful builds". Infinity isn't luxury to a Light sorc. Making a light sorc without infinity isn't worth it, any other experienced sorc player will agree.

    Re: If you had only one Ber rune.....

    Agree with dirkw here :D, Enigma actually enables a lot more builds, as coh is in my eyes an expensive um'd vipermagi.
    Bottemline, you have a lot of options, you should pick one where there is no cheap alternative for, and then enigma>>>>coh. You could pick beast, but I think there are more builds usefull with enigma then there are with a beast (imho).

    This is ofcourse if you can save up for the jah ;)

    Elucidation: I was bored after making enigma. No MF nor killing char really does much compared to a hammerdin. That was before 1.10 realm only runewords, singleplayer.

    Viper with dr, more skills and mf, like Maybach vs Volkswagen :)

    I'd wait until getting a legit Jah to make an Enigma.

    Ok, what's the deal with Enigma? Why so many ppl use enigma to MF? It doesn't even give that much MF (1% / clvl, right?)

    I MF with my sorc with Full Tal's and have Gull + Rhyme on switch. If I'd put enigma, it would really ruin my sorc! CoH on the other hand...

    [And I don't want to make a Hdin!]

    Alecz, there are more characters that can mf then a sorceress or hdin. Nobody should ever put an enigma on a sorc, but enigma enables a lot more pvp-builds aswell, so you can use it later aswell.
    Btw, I'd never use a coh on a mf character, as I think an mf char should be used with cheap eq aswell.

    Nepeta, in your comparison between coh and viper you forgot to count in the price difference and the 30 fcr (which is needed for 200 fcr sorc's). I think you totally missed my point though. I said that you should compare the possibilities and see what can be gotten elsewhere (cheaper).
    Enigma has more strenght, same skills, a lot less resists, same dr, more life, .... But all these mod's can be obtained somewhere else. Enigma has teleport, which enables a lot new builds who aren't very fast mf-chars without eni, and can introduce in pvp aswell.
