Made a second sword with the runeword Spirit since the first one failed, but the second one failed also.
both were also in correct order so: Tal Thul Ort Amn and i crafted both with my ladder char.
Is this a known bug?
i tried to remove the runes from my first attempt so i googled and found out that i had to place a Hel and a town ortal scroll with the sword into the cube,so i did that and the runes were gone (!) but the sword was also a grey one and the runes in correct order.
Thanks for the answers and clarifications, i were able to successfully craft two other swords now with my two other empty four socket sword bases!
