New Runewords
No specific recipes were offered, although there was a clue that they planned to bring back versions of two old mystery Runewords that were found years ago in game files that never made an appearance in game, Plague and Pattern . They did say that they wished to make some Runewords that used lesser-used Runes, and that they wanted to fill in some gaps in the current Runewords.
