    Lionheart!

    My highest SP character is a bowazon, and a crappy one at that. Since she was started a long time ago, before I really got into strategy online, she's not very well planned out, and suffers from dire errors like excessive skill points in Magic Arrow and Ice Arrow. And her equipment is nothing super, since I don't have any better characters to MF for her. But she can still take care of herself. She's in Act 5 Hell (done the first 2 quests) and I think proves that even a crappy character can solo Hell in 1.10. At least, you can if you have a lvl 17 Valkyrie. :)

    Anyway, waaay back in Act 1 Hell, I found a 3 socket Archon Plate. Then one of my other chars had a Fal rune drop from one of Lister's mob in Nightmare. Then, this morning.. someone in the Frozen Highlands dropped a Lum! Lionheart was within my grasp! I didn't have a Hel, but I had 3 Dols, so that was OK.

    ..but I didn't have a chipped emerald..

    So I dug out my crappy lvl 22 Sorc that I was bored with, and unleashed the Texas Chainlightning Massacre in Act 1. I was unlucky - I saw 9 other chippies fall before the emerald. But finally it was mine!

    The results: loads more life, 55-ish extra damage on average, almost all of my resists are positive now (for most of Hell I've had 2-3 negative), and my merc inherits my Boneflesh armor.

    Voila! http://members.iinet.net.au/~dcarson/lionheart.jpg

    OK, I know it's no BotD, but it's by far the highest runeword I've made. Next best was a Rhyme shield made long, long ago..

    Edit: new avatar in honour of the occasion

    That is a very nice cheap runeword. I use it or smoke on all my lower melee characters. Congrats!

    Cheap?! <sigh>

    I seriously considered Smoke, when I found that Lum (I had a 2-socket Great Hauberk in my stash I could have put it in), since it only needs the one "high" rune, and gives better resists than the Lionheart. But the rest of the package was too good to pass up. If I find another Lum I think I will make a Smoke for one of my other chars. Or save it for upgrading an exceptional unique weapon (I have a Pul! My highest rune! Got it from the Hellforge..)

    Bad choice of words. Sorry for any offense. I don't consider the runes rare, but I should of realized not everyone has the same luck. Sorry! Cheers!

    Oh, it wasn't offense, just a sigh. One of those "damn, I've almost completed the game in Hell, and an item that uses 2 of the 3 highest runes I've found is considered cheap" sighs. :)

    Do you accumulate these runes through Countess-ing? Or just general play with more characters, more Hellforges, more Hell play than me?

    Countess, and now I'm obsessed with cubing. 1.10 allowed all those "useless" rune drops to later be changed into something good. Also, playing through, I seem to get a lot of low/mid runes which can be cubed. And as for hellforge, I've almost always gotten Lum's or Um's. Just keep playing, I've not found anything above Lo. but (VERY slowly) I'm cubing there. Cheers!

    I'm glad you have now experienced my favorite runeword in all of D2. Easy to make, lots of stats (60 i believe), res, and even 20% ED! Its a great runeword

    I use Lionheart on all my melee characters, the mods are just wonderful. I am now looking for a 3 socket Sacred Armour to give to my level 99 Werewolf.

    cheers,
