Wrong Runeword, yeeeeeeeeeeeeeah !

ok check this out :
at that time i wasnt vry rich, just like 2 or 3 hrs worth.
then i decided that a good way of getting rich was to make hotos :
vex = soj in eu sc nl, so if u make hoto 30, u tradee it for soj (at that time u could) and u make bewtter u make a nice benefit!..
so, i go find my soj and trade for vex
then i get 4sock flail, ko pul thul...
so in my inventory, all stuff to make a hoto !
and my 2 bros behind me couldnt believe it !
so i go ahead like " Dont miss it, DONT miss it ! "
then " aw its fine its fine im not a crap noob"
so Ko then Vex then Pul then Thul...
no bonuses display...
then i watch closer
Ko Vex Thul Pul.
I drop it and leave the game
then i realize that i could have kept the flail to unsock it...
after hit came the day after... was horrible...
i just cant tell

I once joined a game called "Brg Ko". I traded my ko rune for the guy's 2 lems runes :uhhuh: i decide to stay for a bit and gamble. suddenly, the guy types F***!!! all in caps and leaves. i go to where he was (right by stash) and i find something twinkling on the ground: 4 socketed crystal sword with Ko-Vex-Pul-Thul. iirc, i sold it for a lot of money to charsi :lol:

Yea...See I never have this problem. I always double check the runes/order/item class before I make a runeword.

About the guy trying to make hoto from a crystal sword, I think he should've been a little smarter. Yeah, it shows he was thinking because crystal sword has no dex requirement, where a flail does, but if it was possible wouldnt people be using crystal swords instead of flails? Hehe.

What pains me to see is people making a Hoto from a higher class flail, such as Scourge. It really isn't that hard to find a 4os flail. Even if you have trouble finding socketed items, its worth the wait to me for the stat points you'll save.

Lessee, here's my list of RW's made and attempted but screwed up on(that I can remember:lol:):

1 Rhyme
1 Failed Rhyme when I put TAL instead of SHAEL lol
1 Failed Insight, when I put it into a dang good... SPEAR!!! Bah.
1 Almost made Oath, but ladder reset before I could say forget it and put them into the Ettin Axe I had...
4 Stealth
12 Steel- one's on my nl FR druid right now- Crystal Sword- does anyone know what the FR is for anyway?
1 nearly-made CtA until I forgot that ladder reset and I asked for a mal instead of an ist. So I still need the ist. lol And a 5os flail.
1 Nadir- I sold it immediately because it cost one hundred thousand to replace the charges on the one I made on a skull cap...

And that's all I remember.

A friend of mine made a Ber-Ith-Jah armor last ladder season. I didn't feel too bad for him, because another pal of his (who was very wealthy, it would seem) traded him some high runes for it. I can't imagine the sickening feeling he had when he messed itup, though.
