    So I had an Um rune poof today...

    I mean seriously, what's USEast Ladder coming to? Um runes are getting duped? What a load of crap. I mean geez, that's pretty sad. It's not even worth that much. Duping has gotten horrific. Next ladder reset? Not soon enough.

    On a lighter note, I found an Ohm today off of Shenk's minions. I've also found 3 Mals since I first started playing again in early August. Yay for me!

    Runes lower than um were duped on Useast this ladder season.

    Congrats on the ohm find.

    How else would people be paying 50 Hr for pcomb lifers? <---CRAZY


    I love how people are advertising for 'self-found' this-and-that. There's no way to tell...unless you trust the person...and then 'self-found' Zods should be pretty rare.

    Common things I've heard of poofing: Coa, maras, spider...the list goes on.

    Reset wont help. I think we're screwed. Just be content with everyone having perf gear and go from there, I say.

    The poofing of duped runes won't stop in a new ladder.Ladder reset will result in a "clean" ladder for 3-4 days,after that,welcome back duping madness.
    Ruststorm is the only possible answer to duping imho.

    Didn't perm the game long enough and it was wasn't there after I switched chars. But it could have been duped!

    I don't understand ruststorm. Cheaters dupe stuff and then trade those duped items to legit players with legit stuff. Rust deletes the legit players items leaving them with nothing. They lose what they earned and what they traded for. The cheater is left with legit loot.

    Seems like this feature is mostly about punishing legit players.

    It discourages legit people from trading for high runes, which are all dupes. The non-legit people have their runes poof over and over. Sounds ok to me.

    Duping has ruined SoJ on USEast Non Ladder... with one SoJ, you could get Arach's, a low Mara's, HoZ, a HR, etc. Now it's impossible to trade SoJs except in bulk (which are used to spawn Uber Diablo). There's no point using it on a character anyway, because they constantly poof... and people use FCR rings on casters.

    my legit HR's this season consist of 2 vex, 1 jah and 1 ohm + (3mal and 2 ists) as well. I couldn't even make a legit nigma with those.... i got no choice but to trade for other hrs...

    so we are suppose to find those zod's ourselves to make all those runewords...

    sounds illogical for blizzard to enforce something like that.

    Think about the runeword Last Wish, the runes required are just ridiculous, and it's Ladder only. So you have a limited time to find those runes. Then they start discouraging trading for them as well. What does Blizzard expect? That we find 3 Jah's...? I believe Blizzard should fix the rune drop percentage, or atleast in Single Player where it's not that easy to make a runeword like Enigma.

    I think ruststorm is not even the best solution, as it's been mentionned, it's mostly legit players that pay for it. However I have no better idea.

    Last wish was made to make the best of a bad situation. That bad situation being that they can't fix duping (it's been in the game forever, and they couldn't fix it when D2 was their 'active' game, so I'm sure they've realized they don't have the resources for it now).
