    Trading: Poofing and perming

    Hi

    Just have a quick question on poofing HRs and potentially poofing items in general.

    I understand that HRs are the standard currency when it comes to trading for high-end items. But people also constantly complain of poofing; by this they mean Blizzard's ruststorm.

    A question: How do u perm potentially poofing items?

    I heard once that you should create the runewords asap so that there is less chance of the HRs poofing. Is this correct? Or will the runes still poof even though they are part of a formed runeword?

    The other thing I hear constantly is that if you suspect you are carrying a duped HR, make sure whenever the character carrying the HR is playing, the game is permed. Yes, no?

    In other words: how do you 'perm' a poofy item?

    all forms perming are a myth, any duped item can dissapear at any time
    duped hrs in runewords can poof the item, but its rare

    its best to keep your hrs on a mule that never joins public games to prevent them from poofing, mule some when needed to an item mule when your ready to trade them

    Is this happened to you? Since i got runewords made of hr's and i don't think all runes are "real", and none of them have disappeared. Anyway few of my ists disappeared ealier. I recommend that u don't trade for hr's if u are not making runeword of them. That's what i've done and works good for me.

    A pity then. In trading forums, the standard currency is HRs. And for higher end things, like say, pally torches and Pcombs, people usually auction off them for HRs.

    I still remember the days when Pskulls could be traded off for an SoJ or equivalent.

    Oh well. Thanks anyway.

    As far as I know, there's only 1 way of perming HR's.
    It only requires a chicken or a goat, a sharp knife and a night of full moon :grin: !

    it's actually ironic that i haven't used a legit hr i've found..i prefer using the dupes i trade for to make the runewords. I sometimes know/suspect when the hr/soj is 'real'. usually the person who trades the hr/soj is new and wants lower end set items for their starting character...
