    Runeword/Polearms Question

    My apologies if this has been asked.

    My apologies if this is a dumb question.

    Can you make a runeword for polearms in a spear? I want to make an infinity for my merc in an Ethereal Superior Lance. Will it work, or will I be out 4 perfectly good runes?

    Muchas Gracias.

    Spears & polearms are different things.
    A polearm runeword will not work on a spear.
    Nuff said :p

    Sorry, you could still make one for a "4 socket weapon" like Phoenix or Fortitude.

    If you can make infinity, stating you're wealthy, you should know polearms & spears aren't the same :bonk:
    Where did you get the runeword from? Probably from the areat summit I'dd guess, where above the runeword page all differences are made.
    (sorry for some possible misspellings)

    Nope and it SUCKS.
    I love spears and I hate polearms, and the only decent RWs that I can actually make for spears besides BOTD is freaking Eternity and HoJ...

    The RWs that will work in spears:
    Fury (expensive, and not as good as other options, IMO)
    Honor (mid levels)
    Malice (low levels)
    Silence (see Fury)
    Strength (low levels)
    Venom (bah)
    BoTD
    CTA
    Eternity
    Hand of Justice
    Passion
    Phoenix
    Wind (double bah)

    The RW that will work in Poles but not spears are:
    Crescent Moon
    Doom
    Destruction
    Infinity
    Insight
    Obedience
    Pride
    Rift

    I think that list is complete. If anybody sees anything I left out, LMK.

    I think honor is more for low lvls as it can give you the most dmg possible for a low lvl.
    got a honor on my lvl 29 pally in a 'low str req' twin axe and it has 111 max dmg :)
