    Infinity Runeword wont work

    A friend showed me a runeword that was excellent for mercs.
    It was Ber-Mal-Ber-Ist in polearms, After a long time of trading
    and mf running to try to get my runes I finally had them! I was
    satisfied as a 3 year old kid getting his first bicykle.. I attach them
    into my polearm one after one and when attaching the last one.

    <POFF> NOTHING HAPPENS?!



    A dissapointed Jesaja.

    You probably used magical (blue colored) polearm with 4 sockets. Can't make runewords into them. Just normal/superior socketed items (grey colored) can be used for runewords, no other.

    Next time make sure you collect more information regarding the issue, before you waste so many good runes.

    I once made obedience in what i thought was a polearm, but what i finally noticed it didnt work because it was a spear class weapon crap runes so no big deal but i would have been pissed if i it were a couple ber's.

    Ouch. Bummer man.

    Several things could've gone wrong.

    You used a spear instead of a polearm.
    You're not on Ladder.
    You used a magic (blue) item rather than a normal gray socketed one.
    You didn't put the rune in the exact order they are listed in for that RW.
    You got one of the runes confused, but Ber, Mal, Ber, Ist is the proper set.

    Check here for details on all the RWs. The intro is very thorough about defining proper weapon types.

    I know how you feel. When it came out in January, Infinity was my Holy Grail. It took a few months (call me snail), but I made one and my sorc is VERY happy!:clap:
