Some Runewords are now nerfed / bugged?

Hej... a good friend tried to make the Lore runeword yesterday. He used
Ort, then Sol in a 2 socket grim helm, so all should have been fine. It did
not make the runeword, only added the rune bonuses to the helm.

He tried to make the item on Battle.net, US East, and we are both on
the new Ladder. This was in a Normal game in the Rogue Encampment,
standing near the stash chest. Neither of us are using any hacks or
anything of that sort, so before you ask that is not a possible cause.

Is there any word yet on other runewords having problems after v1.11
was installed? I have not seen anything reported yet in the past few
days of threads here, so forgive me if I missed one. If anyone has some
information, it might be helpful to all here.

I made a lore on us east ladder 2 or 3 days ago an it worked fine. The grim helm wasnt a magical helm with 2 sockets was it?

Are you sure it wasn't a "Mechanics Grim Helm"? This won't display any bonuses, but it's still a magical item...

Also, just in case: the thing did have 2 sockets, not three? Everyone knows that you can stick 2 CDs into a case that has room for 3, but it works slightly different with runes :)

I did not see the item beforehand, but afterward it said it was an 'Artisans'
something or other, which I took to mean what it was now that it had two
runes in it. So, since my friend has been playing for years now, I assume
he could tell a magic from a non-magic helm, yes. :D

Definitely only two.

And agreed about 2 vs 3 cds in a case. :)

The 'artisans' is a magical mod on the item. It's what granted it the 2 sockets, it didn't work because it was a magical helm. My sorc on Useast ladder has made 2 lores this season, and they worked fine.
