ES Runewords

&ref(): File not found: "wikirunewords.JPG" at page "Runeword Discussion";

  • schism isn't too overpowered. i think the 2 oskills are a bit much and the CtC Fissure might be better as CtC Enchant. Reformation is way to oskill crazy. 6 oskill on 1 item is way too much. Besides those aren't even good oskills for a eth melee weapon. I would try an oskill attack or ed% aura -- logger120? 09-27-2007 (Thu) 09:18:56
  • Obviously, schism is non-ethereal and can be used by fire casters too, and reformation is ethereal, but i tried to take a bit off the total max damage. Straight enhanced damage can be dstoned if desired. Not 100% happy with the stacked indestructible mod, but i wanted both wo and zod in there together. It's not like it's a triple-stacked ITD (cough*last wish*cough) -- Parabola? 09-26-2007 (Wed) 13:11:20
  • Been in the sandbox trying to figure out what's going on here, if this edit is a bit messy i'm sorry, it's my first wiki edit attempt. Just to get the ball rolling on the discussion page here, i offer these two runewords -comprised of a mixture of LoD and ES runes, designed to be end-game melee weapons which are somewhat comparable to the uberdamage rare weapons. Goal was to make weapons which offer an alternative to rares, but aren't so strong as to become automatic must-have choices for all melee chars. I've got no idea if i've hit the mark with these (probably a bit overpowered) -- Parabola? 09-26-2007 (Wed) 13:01:22

Translation Section

  • ES Runewords are basically real Japanese words. You don't have to strictly stick to this principle, though. "Fuchi" (for RW Edge) means an edge in Japanese, while "Ameria" (for RW Princess) is the name of an anime character who is
