    Ladder only runewords

    in the spf faq i read this....


    Q: 'Ladder Only'?

    A: I thought I already told you Ladder Only stuff was enabled in SP...


    so does this mean that the runewords and items are available in single player?

    (or do i continue wishing?)

    thanks for not flaming.

    Everything except the new "realm only" runewords can be made in Single Player. No Annihilus either since the Diablo Clone doesn't spawn

    since i never bnet. i didnt know the diff between realm and ladder...

    Correct. There's an easy way to tell if a runeword isn't available in Single Player. Is it either 1) ridiculously overpowered for the trivial runes it uses or 2) use multiple very high-end runes, such as 3X Jah. If it meets either of these criteria, it is probably not available in Single Player.

    But true. I wouldn't mind some of those ridiculously overpowered trivial runewords. *sob*

    Yeah... I guess the confusion arises because half (or more...) of the new runewords are Ladder-only. Maybe I ought to revamp the FAQ a bit... hmm.

    Maybe you should, we get 2 or 3 threads a week asking about ladder only items and runewords.

    hmm, overpowered ? dont think so... in case you looked at them carefully you ll notice that most of them have some (more or less) hidden downside...

    example spirit : only shields that can have 4 sockets have strg req of 156 ( monarch ) or more, so, even though it is a awsome caster shield, it also has a serious effect on your stats distribution... :uhhuh:

    Can you imagine two of those (weapon/shield) on a low-level Hammerdin though? *shudder*

    And yeah, 156 Str is a lot, but for that extra +1 skill point, resists, FHR, and FCR it's a sacrifice well worth making! IMO, anyway... :uhhuh:

    4 socket Pally shield can get early and with less req.

    Now think the combo of 1x shield + 1x sword

    It is not overpowered, it is crazy insan overpowered.

    You can always don't make it in a pally shield. I would make it for a act 3 merc though.

    For the crazy rune requirement, why not make it in a pally shield, when you find a better shield, just make another one, and so on ...

    Yes, you can throw a shield to A3 merc, no problem at all, don't forget give him a sword too.

    Spirit gives +mana and +22 vita and +1 skills. the + mana is ~ 30 skill points in energy for some characters. so spirit gives you 50+ skill points actually so the 156 str req is actually around 100.. i mean, argh i cant explain it...

    @Shade: WHat low level hammerdin? in bnet low level chars don't fight..

    Thast very true. All low level hammerdins on bnet are low level because they have yet to get a rush. Then within 20 minutes there baal running and using the expensive impossible to find legit runewords.

    Are you doing the correct recipe?
    [font=arial,helvetica][size=-1][font=arial,helvetica][size=-1]3 Amn Runes + 1 Chipped Amethyst = Sol Rune
    If you are, then i have no idea why it wouldnt work.[/size][/font][/size][/font]
