How does rune combiner work?

When combining 5 runes to get a higher-tier one, can you get runes that you already have unlocked 9 of, or are you guaranteed to get a rune that you are still missing?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

who is voting this duplicate? Is reading and comprehending that hard? –  Hackworth Jul 29 '12 at 18:16
This is a duplicate because the first question is asking about how the rune combiner works. A complete answer to the first question should fully cover the nuances of the rune combiner and its mechanics, whose scope would cover this one. Feel free to ping the answerer (@Raven in this case) in a comment on the answer to get it updated, or alternatively, put a bounty on it so it gets more attention and you get the information you need. –  FAE Jul 29 '12 at 20:37
@fae Maybe I just have a different understanding of what "exact" means. I am not asking how the rune combiner works... I am asking, very specifically, whether or not it respects the 9 rune limit. What is so hard to understand? I don't know how to phrase it differently. –  Hackworth Jul 29 '12 at 20:48

As already covered in this question the runes you get are random.

And since they are random you can get one you already own a full set(9) of.

if you always get the same rune from a certain combination, then surely there must be a recipe list somewhere? –  Hackworth Jul 29 '12 at 10:05
@Ender thanks for pointing it out. My initial answer was only from my experience. –  Lerkes Jul 29 '12 at 11:54
The question does not mention whether or not it can give you a 10th rune of a kind. I asked my question specifically because of that, since for example you can't buy more than 9 runes of a kind, so it's not unreasonable to think the rune combiner also respects that limit. So the answer you linked does not cover my question. –  Hackworth Jul 29 '12 at 13:08
@Hackworth There would be no reason that I could have 15x +0.95 AD runes if not by this way. –  Lerkes Jul 29 '12 at 17:43

As already said, its random so you can get anything. You should probably try to combo first all lower tier runes, before buying all the runes you want.
