    V 1.11 Runewords and Veil of Steel questions

    1. Do any of you guys make use of any of the 1.11 armor runewords (other than Treachery?) I made Myth and Peace, and found them underwhelming, to say the least. (Although I do like the CTC Valkyrie on Peace).

    2. Any use of the Veil of Steel helm with any class or specific build? I have one, but I have no idea how I got it, probably some screwy trade.

    As always, thanks for your response.

    I am not too sure, but I think peace is used in LLD for the critical strike.

    I made Bone armor for my single player necro, it has decent resists and it was the only way I could get +2 necro skills on an armor since I'm not rich enough for a coh in sp. I couldn't imagine using it on bnet though.

    I used to use Veil of Steel and Guardian Angel on my merc to give him 90 all resist. This lets him tank hell trav pretty well.

    Some of the 1.11 runewords are much better than others, necro one is good for poor people and peace has CS and slvl 15 Valkyrie (2% though), but look at the barb one 'myth' if there is a crap item in D2, this is it, -req? What were they thinking? I'd rather use biggins bonnet.

    Principle isn't far behind either, considering you need a Gul to make it.:shocked:

    Yeah and it has really great mods like max poison res, and slower stamina drain!

    myth has -req coz it has a hel..... And no you wouldnt rather biggings bonnet as it doesnt fit your body being a hat...

    Myth has it's uses, Very cheap armor for +2 sks. Good fo rearly ladder of if you wanna make a bo drone.

    Edit- veil of steel is a nice item (good merc helm if eth) i suppose could come in useful on a bargain smiter if you need the res

    2 things about Myth--
    1. if you're a berserker you don't need defense
    2. high level shout makes up for Myth not having good defense :scratchchin:

    I always wanted to put myth on an act 5 merc.
    The skills should work, -req may be useful to equip it early and the holw and taunt may be interesting.

    I've tried that before.

    The howl and taunt didn't really add up to much, because they were not reliable and (because of that) lacked overall impact.

    I really didn't delve into this case deeply though, as the initial results were pretty disappointing. Maybe something great could still come off it if you overloaded on ias, dno.
