Runewords How to

Runewords socketed correctly create Runic Items, among the most powerful items in the game. They are always the same, varying only by the stats of the item you insert them into, so you can look over the menu and pick out just what you want.

Runes list: Amn, Ber, Cham, Dol, El, Eld, Eth, Fal, Gul, Hel, Io, Ist, Ith, Jah, Ko, Lem, Lo, Lum, Mal, Nef, Ohm, Ort, Pul, Ral, Shael, Sol, Sur, Tal, Thul, Tir, Um, Vex, Zod.

How To Make a RuneWord:

1) Items used for RuneWords must be gray text items, normal, exceptional, or Elite. Low Quality, Superior, and Ethereal can be used, but you can not use magical, Rare, Set, Crafted, or Unique items, even if they have the correct number of sockets.
2) The item must be of the correct type.
3) The item must have exactly the correct number of sockets (no more).
4) You must socket the Runes in the correct order.
