    Too bad about the runes Shermo...But again some pretty decent "trinkets" on the side:) Too bad that sorceress amulet wasn't +2 skills...Some nice charms although the skillers aren't the best. Again it seems a waste to hunt LK for runes, but you do get a lot of cool stuff too, and if you ever do get that lucky shot it'll all seem worth it.

    I inspired someone... I'm touched! :D

    And those are some lousy results runewise! Do 100 more, and I can almost promise you that at least the rune finds will be better.

    Lower Kurast; you run around and open all the chests on p8 hoping for a Ber. At least, in theory.

    LK = Lower Kurast (chest hunting)

    These 100 are not so good - runewise. I do LK runs too, but I have done 5 consecutive runs at maximum - they are so boring for me. I still didn't get a single skiller, but get some good runes as FAL, KO, LEM.

    honest?

    so it's a better rune hunting ground than the countess? well, i know the countess can't drop such high runes (i forget her upper limit), but man can she lay on the lower end runes...

    hmmm. and how long should a run take typically?

    btw. can someone linkeh me to more LK run results?

    thx
    :) matt

    Heh, hey Matt!

    Well basically you don't do LK runs for runes in general, you do it because there are so many "popables" which has a higher chance for high rune drops than regular monsters.

    Its been a long time no see Matt. Look for Illiana posts, she has given the results of her four hundred runs.

    Chests have higher chance to drop runes (and jewelry) more than most monsters. You can run LK at P8 very quickly and because there are lot of chests, it can bring some results... There is nothing special about LK chests. Oh there are 3 super chests then can pop a lot of items (with forced magic quality)

    Kurast Bazaar and Upper Kurast should be about the same, as they also have lots and lots of containers. Check the area level, it might be higher there.

    It's all about Time Vs Effort.

    Lots and lots to pop and potentially up to a Ber rune which is what most people are going for. Lots of charms, jewels and items and crafting supplies.

    Easy and quick and you never know about hitting a high rune. One rune will make all the difference.

    You know Shermo, you may have had lousy rune luck but if you hit a high rune like an Ist then that's like 2 Mals or 4 Ums or 8 Puls ....

    supermatt, you may have been playing d2x forever ... but you haven't been spending that much time here on SPF as far as I can tell. You know, we are a secretive bunch. :wink2: We need all the luck and strategy we can get being legit and Single Player (for the most part). Bnetters don't have to resort to such "esoteric" tactics because of rune trading/Ebay/duping etc.

    hehe. yeah, i used to be pretty regular round here, but after 15 Mat/Pats (and roughly 1550 level-ups) i haven't really played D2X in about a year so haven't been around much over that time.

    anyway, i just resumed my abandoned Hammerdin (A3 Nm) and started a DTalon Trapped (A1 Hell) so my interest is returning.

    ;) matt

    Something interesting that I noticed while doing my runs: The Guys with polearms (fanatics?) still chase me even though I've smashed the orb. I think that the only thing that makes a difference is what level your character is. My sorc's lvl 81.

    I think the "smash the orb" thing is just a rumour

    No it isn't. Check your quest window, if the orb was really smashed. I think that when the last quest change to "Kill Mephisto in his durance", fanatics should be running from you. If they don't, kill Mephisto, that will be sure then.

    interesting, never heard of the "smash the orb rumour" however when i run lk with my clvl89 hammerdin those guys always run away.
    he has 0mf and is my base item finder. i almost never find runes in lk but get 100's gems and loads of charms. i think this alone makes it worthwhile. and i WILL find a 4soc archon plate, i WILL! :)
