    People simply join a game and let their mules sit there for two hours, so that they can't expire. That's all.....not that exciting huh? Bah sorry I thought you said perming mules.

    Some people believe if they enter a trade window (and put the runes into it - I'm not sure), then close (abort) it and leave the game immediately, the rune will somehow lose its ID number, not being detectable as a dupe, so it won't be deleted. I doubt that (and I don't do it), but it won't hurt, I guess..

    As trading HRs isn't forbidden here, I see no reason to regard that technique as a hack or cheat. Anyway, I wouldn't object if the mods decide otherwise.

    these perming techniques have never been proven. So I would not rely on them 100% every time you trade for a HR on bnet.

    If u realy want to perm a rune put in a runeword right you trade it or uppgrade it to a higher rune (u will need 2 runes to uppgrade if HR). If u find your HR keep it! It wont poof! :D

    How about if one started to not accept a Jah for a Jah, but demanded 2x Ber and the correct gem instead? This wouldn't be a problem for the forge rushers out there (and definetly not the dupers....).

    This may lead to Zods falling in price, tho, but aren't they actually pretty cheap compared to their rarity already?

    Yup, the trade value for zod/jah (at least on Europe where I used to play) was 5-5.5 ist, whereas ber/lo/ohm cost 6. When the new rw's came out, lo shot up to 8 ist for a while, and from what I hear, sur costs something like 4 ist.

    Pretty crappy, given the real rarity of those runes, but I hear on West NL hr's cost something like ist mal, or 8 million gold or something. lol way to take the fun out of the game, you could earn 2 enigmas in a day :rolleyes:

    those are perming methods that have never been proved either. Some people have had runes in a runeword poof on them. Even when you upgrade a rune, blizzard sometimes just poofs the upgraded rune as well.

    Is it true that upgrading a duped rune will cause it to poof? If so... :(

    I don't think anyone actually knows the mechanics of how runes poof.

    They used to say runes will poof when their item id matches another in the same game. Though many people have tried this and nothing has happened.

    Some have runes for months where they join and leave game with them and then suddenly poof.

    Some say putting the runes in a runeword or socketing them into something will perm them but many runes have also poofed within the runeword.

    Upgrading runes will perm them but again, a lot of upgraded runes have also poofed.
