Trading "Economy" Lately, I get the distinct impression that virtually everyone who's considered "wealthy" in this quaint little Diablo 2 trading economy (specifically ladder) has done so by exploiting the dupe situation. That is, either by explicitly duping runes themselves, or by somehow tacitly riding the dupe wave(s) to a profitable conclusion. The best items in the game (i.e. ones not derived from combinations of runes) have mostly sunken to pathetic trade values, whereas relatively-common items that serve no purpose but to host runewords have been inflated past their rarity. I think this sort of economy makes it very difficult for new players (or at least, honest ones) to achieve anything more than a middling status. I'm sure everyone else has thoughts on this, so what are they?
