    Wtf! Runeword not work

    I finally tracked a decent armor to forge my Lionheart into. It was an ancient armor with 232 def and 3 sockets only.

    But it didn't work! I inserted the runes in the right order first Hel, then Lum, then Fal.

    Why's up with that? *sniff*

    The only reason I can come up with, is if the armor was a magical, socketed armor. It has to be a "grey" armor.

    if the runes are in right order, it should work as long as the armor just is a normal socketed one. If it is magic with 3 sockets, it will not work. Only 'grey' items for runewords.

    Yeah, that was my primary theory too, and it turned out to be the issue I think. I just thought the blue name wouldn't matter, as long as the only attributes were sockets :\ I'll never buy an armor again.

    Not possible. I sold it to Larzuk shortly after in a moment of anger and despair o_O

    .... in a Nat's Armour. :D

    And BTW most ladder only runewords do work in Single Player. It's just the latest batch of 20 odd that don't.
