    Runes

    I gathered some runes and have a few questions about this strange magical stones.

    1. How do you know wich runes are worth something and wich are not? I got some runes from killing the countess, some giving 30/35% resist if you stick it on some armor/shield, wich sounds pretty good to me for only one socket, but I have no ide what they are worth.

    2. I tried transmuting 3 equal runes thinking I could upgrade them like I can with gems, but got a totally different rune instead. How do I know what the runes will transform in to?

    3. I heard there are some "hidden" bonuses you can get with some sort of runes. What are they and how do you get them?

    Hope you can help out a newbie.

    Re: Runes

    We have a separate forum for these kinds of questions: http://diablo.incgamers.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=25

    1. It depends on your realm and in particular whether you are on ladder or non-ladder. Have a look at the stickied guides or search for threads which might answer your questions.

    There are no hidden bonuses, but you probably heard about runewords. Certain sets of runes in certain types of equipment will add further abilities into an item, beyond what the runes offer themselves. See here: http://classic.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/runewords.shtml

    Re: Runes

    The other questions have been answered above, but I thought this one needed to be answered. When you put 3 equal runes (some need gems also) and cube them you get the next rune up from that.

    Check out this site for all your cube recipes (including rune upgrades)

    and here for the different types of runes and the specifics of their bonuses
