Runemaster zero %elemental?  You're kidding, right?
You are right, I forget the effect of rune weapon itself. I had always remembered it adds huge amount of int.
But that's still not a notable number compared with Earth or Storm. So the effect of this chest armor would still be huge.

Guess it depends on how you class elemental.  Thunderstrike does lightning damage/electrical burn, Runeword: Explode is fire/burn, Menhir's Wall has elemental lightning and elemental damage, Seal of Fate has elemental damage and Runic Mines has elemental and frostburn.  So a lot of the skills have some sort of elemental damage.

i don't think this is poorly thought out.. but it's too weird



looks good for a mage.. until you see the requirements
Anyone investing in elemental damage would try to keep str to a minimum, 560 is exorbital

Unless you have a way to reduce these requirements to nothing. I can imagine melee elemental runesmith would actually become playable with this, and maybe one more item to scale int or %elemental, like Polydegmon or Shavo's relic. And a single Timaios or common item with "weightless" prefix like a shield.

Does this even drop in game though? I have never seen it.

yes it does.. i have at least 2 of these.. i can imagine this can be a good option for a pure elemental runesmith.. maybe for str + int casters also.. the thing is, if I'm not mistaken, this item was around even before AE.. so str doesn't affect spells yet and there was no runesmith yet.. I'm not sure anymore but maybe someone can confirm

tq-db.net itself shows ragnarok expansion items as such and this one is not one of them. It has a notable loot table too, exclusive to act II https://www.tq-db.net/equipment/horus-refuge
