    Hey all

    First off sorry if this is in the wrong place, I could not find a better place to post it.

    I was stupid and socketed my runes into an item with stats, because I got excited and thought I could get a "super-runeword". Is there a way to take the runes out of the armor in SP or shall I just suck it up and go grind again?

    "Blizzard cannot restore lost items for any reason including due to your failure to properly create a Rune Word."

    Only way to get your runes back is "cheating" i.e. an editor. Probably best to farm more, especially if they weren't high runes. I had a friend fail to make Destruction on bnet once (Vex Lo Ber Jah Ko) by putting it in the wrong item (Axe). It sucks but it happens.

    Edit: quick tip. If you ever mess something up, minimize the game. Then close Diablo with task manager to prevent it from saving. This shouldn't be abused obviously, but it may help if you mess up in the future or click the wrong difficulty.

    My first piece of advice is to read about Runes on the wiki if you haven't already. Unfortunately the Runes are lost forever and you just have a stat stick now.

    They are gone, get over it.
    What runes were they anyway?

    They were one of the lower ones, but I just wanted to redo the mistake, seems I at least earned some real life xp for my stupidity :D
