The new Runes of Protection

Having just browsed the descriptions of Runes of Protection in the Item Mall, it appears that they only protect against weapon breakage, not downgrading, and that the Basic RoP can downgrade by 50%, Silver by 25% and Gold by 10%.

In which case, attempting to upgrade a level 10 item with HS and a Basic Rop could result in a level 5 weapon, a Silver RoP in a level 7/8 and even using a Gold RoP could result in a level 9...?

Have I understood this correctly?

Yes and no.

The runes work as you described however they are still based on the upgrade item used.
So if you use a HS with a rop, it can give you +1 / -1 / 0 / break....but the break in this case is replaced by the ROP's downgrade.

Also Platinum rune can give you a +2 or +3 while upgrading.

Not to mention using those on anything below at least +17 would be waste .
