Runes like Ral,Tal,Amn,Thul,Ort,Hel are in high demand now. If your purpose is not to make legit runewords, hunting those low runes by do countess and massive killing. Otherwise do cows and travincal like crazy and hope HRs will drop.I have only got low runes from countess...Sol, shael, tal, ral... Very boring with these runes. I will try cows and travincal.
Couldn't agree more. I've been key running a numbered set of private games (2 computers, so 2-player games) to see what key drop rates I observe in, say, 100 games of Countess/Summoner/Nihlathak runs (currently 5 keys/18 games [5/54 bosses: 1H/1T/3D], so I've got some dry times ahead of me). One of the random goobs in Tower level 5 dropped Ist; Countess dropped El/Eld. Next run, Countess dropped Ko. Never know what to expect.Just keep hacking away and eventually she will drop good stuff. Plus she can drop keys which are worth alot nowadays.
I do that too.Dondrei said:Well, except that in the old days I'd join Baal run games - although the lazy sods rarely bothered with Baal himself, they were just lvling with his minions. I'd wait until they got through the minions and then slaughter Baal solo and take his loot.
Remember, they want to do as little work as humanly possible.Dondrei said:It really wouldn't take that long to get from the WP to Baal if they all worked together and they could lvl and MF as they go, but nooo
