ye it's also lame that despite topic name clearly stating realm content, SP players still come to complain.
@MrFunk: well over the years I've seen some people be skeptical about secret content. I get a bunch of PMs like: "I'm guy A and I don't come to forums 24/7 and I have no friends on TSW so how am I supposed to know this? Plz make them public". Well that's the whole point. If they were listed in the docs, they just become "yet another item".
Making secret items has a few advantages, one of them is: not everyone will use them, so there can be room for some crazyness, such as sorc morph / slain proc in this case, but also things like Liche Form on supremacy RW and whatnot. Also, there is one elemental RW for each itemtype, so it would be inconsistent to add just a couple of RWs for certain itemtypes, instead of adding a second ele runeword for all.
Finally, I think the feeling of knowing "there can always be something more" is overall positive. If I was just another player, and found out after months that there is a secret RW with liche form, I would be really hyped, not upset because others knew about this before than me.
Also I've seen claims of people about these RWs not being "accessible" for reasons such as "nobody will tell me the runes combination", but that's BS, anyone can get that from the short questions thread.
