    Mid-low runes, what to do with them?

    Ello.

    I'm just wondering what to do with runes between Shael and Fal (excluding Hel which is indeed somewhat useful). Those runes aren't much wanted in trading and neither are they used in crafting. So, what's the best way to use them?

    Runewords like rhyme, smoke, black, white, lionheart, treachery, harmony, just off the top of my head. There are a few more mid-runewords besides these.

    The problem is, you can never spend them fast enough that way. I have like 10 shaels now, and have cubed up quite a few runes myself.

    Heh, I play SP, where running countess is much easier. I have over 150 each of shaels and sols. I just won't pick up anymore until I need them- which, I expect, will be never.

    Many of those mid-level runes are used for cube formulas, items upgrades in particular. They're not that useless, you see.

    I'm not saying they are completely useless but just that there's apparently no use to collect stash full of them. I guess upgrading them is what I'll start doing.

    Yeah, at least upgrade all up to Thul. From then on you have to find some additional gems to work those up. It's quite worth it though. Everytime you go a few runes higher you'd find one with use which you can collect.

    I've grown to love Dol's, since it's so easy to cube them up to Hel's. Join an 8-player tombrun as a, f.ex., high-lvl Javazon, and you are guaranteed a ton of chipped gems.

    But Ral's are worth so much more than Thul's.

    Yeah that wasn't my point. Let me explain. Every time you cube up runes you'll come across a rune with more value than the ones direcly below or above it, Ral being one of them. Hel too ofcourse and the Spirit packs to a lesser degree.
