I'm using a crafted weapon. Do those have limited on ED? I rolled one with 200 ED, and additional ED orbs did nothing but increase the required level.
In case you don't know: You can downgrade runes.
ED is capped at 200%. But you can go beyond that.
In case of crafted weapons: If they already have 200 ED, that's it. You can only increase that further either with the right runes or with Perfect skulls.
As for the correct creation of rune words:
Get a superior sacred base item and reroll it as often as you need in order to get the highest possible damage. It can get up to 35% ED, but take a look at the damage/defense values to determine what's best. Sometimes a 20% ED roll can be better than a 35% ED roll because of the varying base values. Note though that if you have an eth item, that you shouldn't reroll it, since eth items have a 50% higher base damage/defense.
After that lucky it. If that didn't work, reroll it again and repeat that until you get the successful lucky upgrade for another 20% ED.
Then add as many mystic orbs as the RW allows. If you use a xis rune you shouldn't add any orbs unless you're level 125.
Then add the jewels and the rune (If you have an eth item, use 1 jewel with the indestructible modifier). The additional ED from the rw can surpass the cap of 200 ED as well. For example: If you have 130% ED already (55% from superior and lucky + 75% from orbs) and the runeword gives +180-200 ED, you'll reach somewhere around 310 - 330 ED on that weapon/armor. Reroll the rw by unsocketing it and putting it in the item again to get the highest possible ED value or other stats that you desire.
