    Question about cube upgrade formula

    Now, I don't yet have the runes to try this yet, but I'm wondering if Runewords count as 'unique' armors and weapons, for the cube upgrade formulas (i.e. normal unique to exceptional unique to elite unique). Or would they count under 'normal' armors and weapons, since they began life as just plain socketed items... would they not fall under either category? Either normal or unique items? Is it one of those things that if you want the exceptional or elite version of that runeword, you just have to find the appropriate socketed item to begin with, no upgrades possible?

    Also, in the same light... do crafted items fall under either category?

    You can't upgrade crafted/runeword, only rares and uniques

    I've tried it and the answer is no.

    This makes it really hard to find that perfect item in an elite version to make a runeword in.
