But what is incredibly stupid about that is, since their are Ladder-only RW's on NL, BUT YOU CAN"T MAKE THEM, the value of the item soars to unimaginable prices. IMO, an extremly stupid move on Blizzards part.
former ladder chars take their equipment with them when they get booted off the ladder.
so there is now a very limmited number of ladder only runewords off the ladder.
however that number will not go up again until the next ladder reset
sorry but you're boned
<edit> the same should hold true for ladder only uniques
