A white one cannot be shopped. You'll have to find it yourself or trade for it.

Try running an area with no MF to increase your chances. Several sites (don't have a link on-hand) have drop calculators to figure out your best chances to find one.

Thanks. I understand that the difference between using suwayya and runic claw for a ww sin is the speed of mb and trap laying is faster with runic, is this true? WW speed with chaos and fury is the same?

I'd look in level 85 areas such as the Pit and Cows, but don't get your hopes too high.

It's the speed of trap laying, yes. Whirlwind stays the same speed with any claw you can make Chaos or Fury in. (the IAS brings them to the fastest speed.) MB is affected by FCR, and not IAS.

BTW, I just looked on a drop calculator (for 1.10) and Hell Cows has the best odds per kill (and there's a lot to kill).

Your absolute BEST bet is to get some items of value or curency to offer and post on some trade forums (here, blizz trades, etc.). You can look forever and not find a runic with nice skills. You can trade for a 3 venom runic relatively cheaply. They aren't expensive. Just post a trade and keep it bumped, esp. on the blizz forums. I was able to get a 2x runics with +3 venom and +3 mindblast on both of them (with DF on one and blade shield on the other). Took about 2 to 3 weeks of effort.
