One day I decided to buy and equip my 'Runes of the Pirate', because I became interested in farming at the Ruins of Orr, and wanting more magic find. The problem came when I looked at one of my pieces of armor which contained my 'Runes of the Afflicated'. It was bugged, and claimed that there were 7/6 runes equipped on 'one' piece of armor, were as my Pirate runes, where on 5 other pieces and claimed that there were 5/6 runes currently. What?! That means I have 12 runes on my character, which I believe the current limit is 7-8 (breathing mask, back included).
I left the game for about 3 months before returning this month waiting for new content to be released (plus friends aren't as active anymore with the game), and I am still surprised that it hasn't gotten patched up. So what's your thoughts on this? Hacks/Unfair player advantage? Just bugged and doesn't provide anything or I'm just a lucky dog? Thank you. (Btw for you wondering if you can transmutate the runes to other armor sets (which is only the leggings) yes it is possible without losing anything.)
