    Best place to find a VEX rune?

    After Prez recommended a "Heart of the Oak" weapon for my wind Druid I checked it out and It looks like it would be a great choice. Now the hard part, where to find a VEX rune. I have a level 85 necromancer that can go most places in the game safely, so where should I start to look. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

    I tried searching all throughout hell without any luck. In the end I just kept making chars for hell hellforge runs until I got 2 gul's to cube into vex :) You could also probably trade for it.

    i found 2 vex runes throughout my d2 career, one is an unattanable(unrunnable area) thanks to 1.1 beefing of monsters. Cow runs, in hell, i found a vex off of a chest. THe other was on a diablo or baal run, i always check chests and various tombs those things, because they usually hold nice items.

    Finding high runes is rediculously hard.

    I suggest pit runes or countess runs. I'd bet money that you wont just find one though. Take that dudes advice and cube up some guls or trade for it.

    Chances are, you'll find an item worth vex before you find vex itself.

    On West Shako will not get you a vex. They trade for SS +

    Monster drop % has Hephasto and Nithalak on top of the heap. I would honestly try to trade for it if you want it badly enough. It will cost a bundle though.

    I've also found 2 Vex runes in my entire time playing. Both in 1.09. One was in the cow level and the other was in one of the ice levels (either Crystalline Passage, Glacial Trail, or Ancients Way). Don't know if those are the best places to find one but that's where I've found mine. Good luck!

    Looks like you need marrowwalk boots! as unlike me, you haven't put any points in bone prison.
    Build looks pretty good otherwise. Trang helm is hard to get!
