The useless runeword

It comes word about this weird runeword "ETERNITY":

Amn + Ber + Ist + Sol + Sur

Indestructible
+260-310% Enhanced Damage (varies)
+9 To Minimum Damage
7% Life Stolen Per Hit
20% Chance of Crushing Blow
Hit Blinds Target
Slows Target By 33%
Regenerate Mana 16%
Replenish Life +16
Cannot Be Frozen
30% Better Chance Of Getting Magic Items
Level 8 Revive (** Charges)

Ok, it haves some nice damage boost, and thanks to "Indestructible" option can be made in ETH weapon (5 soc melee only), BUT compared with the rest HIGH rune words (not even mentioning those since 10.12.04) it is absolute crap. If any of us haves BER and SUR definetly will use them wisely, than placing them in the required order of this redicilous Blizzard creation.
CBF could be good if you are missing it from the rest of equipment, slows target also can be usefull, but who will want on a high-end expensive weapon, mods like mana regenerate, rephlenishe life and Revive on charges.
Lvl 8 revive with ** charges can help in certain builds, but if you use ETH base weapon to take the full advantages of this expensive runeword, it means.... NOT rechargable Revive!

Yeah it is a quite strange runeword. It also lacks ias. I thought about it for a blade fury assa as ias doesn't matter there, but then the indestructable mod, revive, reg. mana and cbf is wasted. But crushing blow, slow, blind, leach and dam is quite nice for a blade fury assa.

Try taking a closer look at "Wind" if you really need to compare useless runewords.

Wind
2 Socket Melee Weapons
Sur + El
10% Chance To Cast Level 9 Tornado On Striking
+20% Faster Run/Walk
+40% Increased Attack Speed
+15% Faster Hit Recovery
+120-160% Enhanced Damage (varies)
-50% Target Defense
+53 To Attack Rating
Hit Blinds Target
+1 To Light Radius
Level 13 Twister (127 Charges)

While the run/walk is nice, I can make much better weapons with cheaper runes

Every thought of that in a sword on a dream sorc?? the ctc would be incredibly powerful since they are mastery oriented.

Wind has the -50% enemy def mod, very nice for PvP if you're an aura user.

also the FHR and IAS help.

It's not bad, its just designed for a very specific purpose.

It would suck major ass on a sorc since no ias on it, and those are sucky low lvl spells anyway. (molten boulder - LOL?, lvl 12 volcano - suuure very powerful, and i wont even go into nova, seen many nova sorcs around? and that ctc is lvl 22 only :).)
