    What do you mean by "strung"??

    I wouldnt consider ANY of those to be good.. at lower levels yes, however end game they're practically useless and your char will have an unbelievably hard time making it through hell. I understand however that perhaps you play single player where its virtually impossible to attain the uber 1.10 patch runewords since you can't trade.. but mostly those stink. The only applicable one imo is the honor runeword for LLD

    im not saying its impossible, I did the same with a conc barb and an honor ettin axe, rhyme shield, lore helm, and lionheart armor.. but once you start finding items they become very quickly irrelevant. great starting runewords nonetheless, but I dont think they deserve the title of best, more like basic

    these are all original runewords, but i also used an act1 cold arrow merc with an edge bow (tir tal amn) for the thorns aura, seemed to work pretty good.

    Ive since abandoned the barb though and I use him for crafting specific items :)

    Spirit (Tal+thul+ort+amn) lvl req 25!! and AWESOME affixes, unbalanced at that low lvl, but more then fine in the endgame!

    Rhyme is one of the best shields in the game well into Hell. Level 29 it comes in right when you need it most. Lioneheart is pretty special for a bowie right through Nightmare.

    Insight in a polearm is amazing on your mercs, unlocking the Sorc, Bone Necros and Hammerdins so you can finally play them the way they are meant to be played.

    I think there may be some misconceptions here. There is an active Single Player trade forum here, and runes are not difficult to find in SP with some discipline. I've self found Vex, Ber, Cham, and Zod in SP, for example. Dedicated Lower Kurast runners can stockpile significant numbers of high runes, and have a great advantage over online players as they can keep the same map for as long as they like.

    I find Smoke one of the best items in the game. Until I can lay my hands on something better :D I use one on my L90 paladin, another one on lightning sorc (all SP) ...

    Let me add another question in addition to the first one I asked: "What runeword are you currently aiming for?"

    I am aiming for White - Dol Io > a perfect rune for a Necromancer's wand :)

    Since CoH doesn't have a Jah, he assumed you were a bit high ( celebrating new year ).

    Also I don't know what a strung runeword is.

    Well, I am currently (for the last 3-4 months) looking for Ber. For Beast or CoH. Not sure yet. ;)
