Runes & Miscellaneous

  • Been long overdue that the "Truth about Prenerf" thread was revamped, so here it is. Have broken this down into 4 sections, see Weapons / Shield & Focus / Greens


    Everything here is subject to change and additions. If you can see a mistake or notice something is missing please say so and it shall be changed. The goal here is to use community collective knowledge to get as close to the truth as possible.


    An item is considered Pre-Nerf if it cannot drop anymore. In other words, the possibility of the game generating these stats or items has been physically removed by the coders at Anet, mainly 2005/2006 around the release of Factions. The only way to acquire Pre-Nerf items is through trading with other players.

    minus 50hp Major runes, all versions

    Superior runes with Minor rune icon

  • I'd like to add also superiour runes on purple armor pieces (not only blue pieces), also major runes with wrong icon / blue color such as absorption, major vigor and recovery, clarity, purity and restoration


    Also depending how you put it, Broken toy, model toy and Whimsical Essence could be considered prenerf? Since new gray giant codes haven't been given in ages


    Late [email protected] Tattered Girls cape also

  • Also depending how you put it, Broken toy, model toy and Whimsical Essence could be considered prenerf? Since new gray giant codes haven't been given in ages

    I'd be hesitant to add this as somebody with an existing unused code could still add a new one to the game couldn't they? Good its been mentioned but I don't think it meets the stated definition of "Prenerf". Anybody else got an opinion on this?


    Tattered Girls cape - Is this a quest item? First I've heard of it.
