Trying to take advantage Ok I've been playing DiabloII since it first came out; leaving & returning whenever the ladder resets. And I have never taking advantage of the runewords that can be made. Oh I have made a few of the simple ones but I have never had any really "high" runes to make some of the better items that can be made. This go round I at least have found or traded for a few of the runes that might make the game a little more interesting. I am sure this is just because BNet has just loosened up the purse strings regarding rune drops. But anyway I find myself sitting with a Sur, Ohm, Um, Mals, Kos and the usual lower ones. I know I can't make the lower resist Polearm and tear the game up with a conviction merc; but after looking at what I can make I am even more unsure what looks good to try out. I primarily play a skellymancer & a hybrid bowzon/javazon, occasionally a cold sorc. I have checked the following for which I either have or could trade for the runes: Bramble - Might put it on my skellymancer but is it worth it for really just the Thorns aura Call To Arms - In what, a polearm for my merc or a bow Delirium - Would this really work in a helm on my merc Duress - why Gloom - not much here either Sanctuary - Shield that doesn't seem to help very much Wind - Total waste of a Sur Obedience - Now this is kinda interesting Rift - On my merc this would be interesting but doesn't have ED My question guys is it worth it to try any of these runewords out? The only one I have looked at that I really am sure to try is Harmony on my Bowzon to see how all of that elemental damage works out with a strafe attack. If any of you guys have tried any of these out and were happy with the results, I sure would appreciate you responding here & letting me know the what & why of the words you used. Thanks for your replies.
