    The title is pretty much it. I just want to find some runes and would like to narrow my search down.

    countess, best for all mid level runes. Can drop up to Lo, though with every slim chances.

    Other option are alvl 85 area's, cows and baal/diablo depending on what rune you are searching for.

    P.S. Certainly have a look at the drop calculator form atma - see single player forum.

    Though not an area, the Hellforge cannot be discounted.
    Glitch rushing mules to hell HF can be a pretty nice rune-profit.

    Seeing alot of results/brag threads about finding it from CS. Popular MF area so people are bound to find one from there along with a possibility of a good item

    Any high level area, I'd say. According to Atma, hell cows have a better chance in dropping HRs, but I've yet to see one there. However...

    Sorry, but it happened yesterday and I just had to show off :p The relative point is you have a fairly equal chance of finding a high level rune in all 85 areas. I personally like the pit because of the amount of elite non-magical weapons and armors that drop, which -- if lucky when cubing -- could get you an HR, too.

    LK Super Chests also are great option especially in SP with static maps.

    Can drop up to Ber with "relative" regularity compared to anywhere else.

    Mmm ye I always find the real exceptional stuff in the pits. I love running it.

    You can go and look for correlations, you won't find any. Most high area levels have one thing in common: they need to be run countless times to be profitable.
