    101 Hell Countess Runs

    So, I decided to document the results from 101 hell countess runs, during these runs I lvled from 80-87. Please keep in mind that I included all runes that dropped during a run in the tally, not just what the Countess dropped. It took me 2 weeks to finish these runs, and after doing almost nothing except countess for 2 weeks I can safely say that it's not worth it to run just her. However it is worth it to run down and kill her occasionally. About navigating the tower, all left hand turns seems to get you to lvl 5 the fastest 95% of the time.

    Wow, when I read the thread title I wondered how long that must have taken you... I doubt I would have had the patience. Thanks for the info, now I know that doing Countess runs isn't good for me. :lol:

    Wow, congrats on the effort!

    You will find that Hell Andy is much more likely to drop nice items. In the many times that my friends and I run by her she tends to drop a bit better than the Countess.

    Unfortunately, her rune track record is not as good...

    Yeah it was actually on the way there, think it dropped in either cold plains or black marsh. Just got a Gheeds from Andy, 19th run, 118/15/38. ^^

    Good job! I'm looking forward to the 100 Andy runs. I think you'll get better results, as far as equipment is concerned. I'm also curious, how much magic find are you using?

    Finally, if I need an El or and Eld rune, I know where to go!

    At the start of the runs almost no magic find, now using around 280 on switch. But resists drop down to 50's, so I try to only do it on bosses.

    Hmmm... I think I'll do 100 Andy runs and see what happens. I just did about 15 alternating drops with a BO bard (my sorc isn't good enough to tele solo in Hell) and the only good things were Wizardspike (which I gave to Matt) and Dwarf Star (which the barb got). I tink I have 262 MF.

    Then there is always Mr. Meph. On my first 13 runs with my new sorc he dropped andariels visage, arkain valor (+2) natures piece and a bunch of lesser uniques.

    I was there when the 4 EL's dropped.

    At that point I asked, why don't we just do a game in normal?

    Also Tral's Cantor dropped from on of the armor stands. AnubisXy was happy to add this to his collection

    So if I disregard the other items you found there (or on the way there), I see:

    Pul, Lum, Hel.

    Wow, I'm glad I've only done 1 hell countess run (for quest, dropped really poorly). Several nightmare runs (25+) and nothing better than Ral, although my friend got abou 5 amns in the same number of tries (in NM).

    I've heard that NM countess is more productive than Hell countess, because she's safer/faster, and the odds of her dropping the mid-runes (i.e. higher than Ral, but lower than Lum, etc) are about equal to hell countess. Hell countess CAN drop higher, but it doesn't mean she WILL.

    I think a far more productive way to get runes is rush character to NM hellforge, or even hell helforge (if you have a character to swing the hell rush). NM hellforge has basically dropped all my best runes. (I'm still working up to mule farming Hell hellforge).

    Looks like you could have stopped after the first two runs and not missed much...

    Believe me, i tried to talk him out of doing more like after 20. Anubis is a very stuborn man. A great person to play with but very stubborn.

    One should always tank her with a sorc. Have yet to get above a Pul rune in the runs but the mids fall like mad.
