    potentially silly question on runewords

    My sorc could do with a decent shield. I've seen from the stickies that Rhyme runeword is fairly good but i want more res. If i create a rhyme runeword, then go to Larzuk and get more sockets for PDiamonds do i lose the runeword?

    You could try it and tell what happened?









    Can't socket already socketed items.

    Equip Moser's Blessed Circle shield. Similar blocking, much greater resistances (with 2xPdiamonds) and as a sorc, you don't need CBF so much (casting rate is not influenced when you are chilled).
    You can also try to shop Chromatic/Artisans shield of defelcting, which is similar to Mosers.

    Sanctuary is a potential option also.

    3 Socketed Shields
    Ko + Ko + Mal

    +20% Faster Hit Recovery
    +20% Faster Block Rate
    20% Increased Chance of Blocking
    +130-160% Enhanced Defense (varies)
    +250 Defense vs. Missile
    +20 To Dexterity
    All Resistances +50-70 (varies)
    Magic Damage Reduced By 7
    Level 12 Slow Missiles (60 Charges)

    Nice blocking and such.
    Good resists, even with the worst of roles.
    20 dex so you can put some more points in vitality while still keeping max blocking.

    certainly more expensive then a Moser's though.

    A cheaper alternative to Sanctuary:

    Ancient's Pledge
    Ral + Ort + Tal
    +50% Enhanced Defense
    Cold Resist +43%
    Fire Resist +48%
    Lightning Resist +48%
    Poison Resist +48%
    10% Damage Goes To Mana

    You get the runes in Act V as the second quest reward but you might find them all beforehand.

    Although you'd get more resistances from filling the three sockets with perfect diamonds (57% resist all).

    What you use really depends on how rich you are. If your poor go with the above or a Rhyme. If your moderately rich then go with Hrus or Hp_Sauce's suggestions.

    Rhyme has decent other mods, but if you just need resists stick 3 diamonds in a shield.. its the cheapest way for about 60 res all.
