This weapon is best suited for those that have Polearm leveled already. In the right hands, it is a very formiable weapon. The +6 DEX is noticable. The +5% Double attack is jaw-dropping. As a sam/war, I equip an Electrum Ring and get refresh from a rdm. The refresh keeps my MP @ 17/20 for the entire time that it is on. When I have Haste, Refresh, Roshi Jinpachi, AF1 hands, Tonosama Rice Balls and /war subbed, I can:

-Double Attack just about every round (its really kinda ridiculous).
-Solo SC with Meditate 80% of the time (please note that I have AF1 Helm and AF2 Kote for 160tp Meditates).
-Solo a 3 part WS every now and then (Penta > Double Thrust > Penta).
-Crank out lots and lots of criticals! +6 DEX is like taking and Emp.Pin and a pair of Leaping Boots and gluing them to your weapon. When all is added up, I use this thing with +31 DEX,

I think that this weapon can catch on as a serious xp item if given the proper showcase.

just wanted to mention that just because you can equip it doesnt mean your has the corresponding combat skill.

for example, im a blm and i wanted to use this weapon for fun, but blm dont have a polearm combat skill... so i cant skill it, my dmg sucks and i dont even have a ws <.<

wasted money ; ;

This weapon is obtained from the Strange Apparatus' all around vanadialc.

Each SA drops a particular Rune Item(- arrows, they come from all of them and are fairly common)

This one - The Rune Halberd - Comes from the one in Outer Horototo Ruins, and requires a Purple Chip(note-if you give any other chip to it, or a purple chip to any other SA, a lv 75 elemental will spawn, and you get nothing)

The chance of getting a halberd is greatly increaced if you enter your password(they are diffrent for each SA and person, but always the same for the same SA and person)

The latent effect is activated by having MP, and comsumes 3 mp/tick.

I've done 5 Strange Apparatuses today, and I've gotten 2 of these. Is that normal? I thought the relic items were really rare.

They're goin for 200-300k on Quetz, anyone need one, send Keidan a tell.

The Rune weapons are supposed to be rare, although I've only done a few runs at these, the best I ever got was only 1 Arcane Flowerpot.

The Relic weapons are Dynamis drops though. ^~

I know this has been said but...

WOW! A polearm that adds 68 defense! And 396 hit points. It's almost like a suit of armor for your weapon slot. Fun times. There's another entry for this item, with Dmg and Delay instead of Def and HP.

Rune latent effects kick in when you have MP and they take -1(or 3, I forget) MP/tick.

I'm thinking that your chances of getting this from a Mysterious Device is increased for using the right chip. I think the Purple Chip would work, because most Spear WS are lightning.
HP 396?

Its Delay 396 not HP 396 ^-^

the latent effect activation is a constant mp drain while the item is equipped; this is the same for all rune weapons and the rate is 4mp/3sec
so you'd either have to sub a mage/hybrid job or have something like serket ring on or actually be a mage/hybrid job

This isn't true, the latent effect does not drain mp when you equip the item. It does drain MP when you enguage a mob. for the overall statboosts I dont see how any of these weapons are really worth it.
