Can someone please explain what in the hell happened here? is it not supposed to be- insert 4 jewels, El then Xis in that order?

I asked the 4/20 friends that I saw online- no response. Now I'm wondering - was i supposed to cube Xis with El to make an El Xis and then insert it into the last slot? i'm so fucking baffled- please, ffs, halp.

this way dont work anymore u need to cube elrune+xis to make the enchanted rune first before u make the rw

yes, with the new 1.2.0 patch, enhanced runewords (with the Xis runes) are no longer 4 jewels, el rune, then xis rune. you need to cube the el rune with the xis rune, to make the new elXis rune, put 5 jewels in the item, and then the elXis rune

Atleast one? I haven't played in nearly 7 years and to be honest... after none of my friends would explain it and I couldn't find info on it anywhere.. I'll probably just go back to playing RoTF, LoL and PoE.

Was nice knowing y'all.. kinda.

it's in the patch notes, as well as the documentation....generally a good idea to look through patch notes and any documentation whenever you come back from a long absence, for any game, but particularly MXL

Many more from what I've seen. But you are right, it's badly informed... seems to be only on patch notes?

it's not badly informed. it's not some undocumented change, or a 1-line description in the patch notes that simply says "changes to enhaced runewords".

it's a multi-line description CLEARLY stating this exact change (the fact that you now cube the runes together to make a single rune, instead of using an interchangable rune + xis rune), giving you an extra socket for jewels/gems. it's not ambiguous, hidden, or otherwise unclear.

if you cant be bothered reading the patch notes, dont go blaming the devs for "badly informing" a change...

It could be more clearly written on the rune.

instead of "can be cubed with low rune"
could be something like "must be cubed with low rune"

.....because it isnt the only use? you can still use 6 Xis runes in body armor for Natasha's Legacy RW.

Same pattern of behavior. Always someone else's fault.

To some extent, let's just assume even if you were ENTITLED to your indignation...

Let's remember what this game is. It's less than an Indie game. It's not even a commercial game. It's a mod which has... I don't know taken the same amount of effort to produce minus the paid customer support? The outcome is as I've learnt since playing not too long ago, is their meticulous documentation. As much as can be expected. Being grown up also involves managing expectations.

Remember when you accused me of being condescending and talking down to you? Newsflash, when you're whining and it's always someone else's fault, not admitting even a sliver of your own oversight, you're practically asking for it like a sub in a german dom party.
