      This page is a disaster.

      Doesn't list weapons in terms of attack base ( i.e. -10, 0, +10), lists runewords that can't be made from claws (crescent moon), and doesn't give a lot of actual useful mechanical information like range, damage scaling from stats, skills mechanic interactions, upgrade options for say bartucs, etc. etc.

      Incredibly useless page overall considering this info is now 20 years available at other places.
