    Runewords with duped runes

    Sorry for bringing up the dupe issue, but here's the catch.

    I like lance whirly babos and intend to make one with ebotd war pike. The plan is to trade for vex first, stick it into pike, then trade for zod and finish runeword in the same game where I trade for it. Questions are:

    1. Do I run the risk of seeing vex poofing? (Europe, ladder)

    2. And how about zod? Will it poof after the rune word is completed, or only via a rust storm?

    Thx for any help.

    The only thing I can think of to help avoid poofing is to keep the runes on a mule that never enters pubby games. Even then, there is no guarantee... as I'm sure Gorny will pop in and tell you.

    If it's a dupe, it will vanish at some point.

    Xenon is the only peson I've ever heard/seen say/show that runes can poof within runewords. It's very rare.

    Socketing runes is certainly saferr than having them loose on a char, but it's still no guarantee.

    I heard that when you use duped runes in a runeword that runeword will disappear after about two years or so. I mean the entire rune word item will disappear. One major runeword out of every character. One of my freinds works at a D2 Item site which sells items and dupes and he says after two years some of his runeword items disapeared.

    He also said they will never stop people from duping because theres always a way to find out how to dupe. The game database is too cheap.

    Also there was a trick with maphack once you activate it lags right? that was a dupe trick back than, but doesn't work anymore.

    He is still duping items for about three years now and made alot of bucks.

    I had a ber rune poof when i created the first game after the trade. So, not even having them on a mule that never enter pubby games is safe.

    i've lost Ber and Ist rune.. After those times, i have made runewords like this:

    1. Bought / found item i want runeword into.

    2. Get ALL runes (all hrs last one, so they don't have time to dissappear on my hands)

    3. Put them into item as soon as priory allows

    Like this i haven't lost any runewords/runes FROM my items.

    I see. Well, my problem is whether I might lose vex if couldn't trade for zod at the same game.. :(

    Can vex poof if I stick it in pike, while keeping the runeword incomplete? Well, simpler question: did people mass-dupe vexes in europe..? :)

    I've never had an imcomplete runeword poof on me yet. Also, Europe is like the most legit place on the world. All runes there are like legit, thats why hgih runes that are like Ber and Jah are worth alot. Not like East or West where 1 high rune = another high rune.

    Jah ~ 4 Ist

    Taken from the Europe laddder item value Guide

    Yup, no duping going on there. Completely legit.

    @sirwhere

    No they duped every single high rune except for Vex. The dupers decided Vex had an icky name and so they didn't dupe them.

    If it's a myth, then you won't have any problem proving so. Please do this.
