    500 Council runs

    I've now completed my 500th Council run, I know that not a huge number but I really prefer adventuring, my total rune finds thus far equals a Vex, an Um and a Pul, with nothing else over a Ko. On average I get about 30 runes per 100 runs. They have been mostly done on /P3, using three different character on a number of different maps. Is this a usual find or have I been unlucky?

    im pretty sure ive done hours and hours of council runs and i think my highest rune was a Ko. I'm running them at /p7, but i know other people has had way more success than I.

    i have done about 200 runs, but they are slower because i also do durance level three, taking out every council member, and meph.

    Runes i have found: 2 x Lo, 1 x Um, 1 x Mal, 1 x Fal, and many low level ones. I am hoping for a Vex. Both Lo's and Um dropped from the chests in Maffer Dragonhands room
    in Durance 3.

    on a side note: i have found 4 unique amulets, they all dropped in Durance 3. first one was Highlord's and that was awesome. The next three were all the same one ... The Mahim-Oak Curio, which made me cry.

    I think those two chests and the one behind Mephisto are of the same kind of those in LK.

    Also, I've found the Counsil to be rather disappointing in rune drops as well, so I'm back in LK now. Sure, it's boring and all, but once I got my last Ber for Enigma I'm outta there. That is, until I decide I really want to make two Dreams.

    yup, i even the screens. i'll post em here and you can see the two chests i mean. i just realized one of them dropped outside in Travincal now that i see the screens again. But they all dropped within about 20 runs.

    Lo #1, upper Maffer Dragonhand chest

    Lo #2, Travincal near entrance to Durance, dropped from a council member

    Puts me to think, the 1.13 update really helped on rune drops didn't it?

    I haven't been playing any characters in Hell lately though, so I'm yet to try it.

    The one behind meph (all the way at the back with the vampires) is a special chest. It is the only one in that area.

    @TheNix: I did about 200-300 runs and I found Vex, Um, Pul. I much prefer questing new builds or even running through all of act 4 and 5 with a completed character more, so I've also found many more runes that way. It's fewer runes per hour, but it's much more fun.

    Re: 500 Council runs

    travi runs were disappointing to me to
    however countess drops must have been pretty much increased
    in around 500-600 runs i found:
    1 ist
    4 mals
    4 ums
    2 puls
    many many lower runes
    and some other uniques
