Does Char lvl affect rune drops in nm or hell Hellforge?

I have done nm hell forges 4 times using lvl 21 chars and the runes i got were never higher then lum!

But when i do a nm hellforge with a lvl 40+ char I got a um.
Also when i do hell Hellforge with my 80 zon I got IST.

So do u guys think hellforges rune dropes base on char lvl or just luck?

Just luck, as far as I know. The runes are randomly selected from within the available range.

just bad luck. i got back to back ists. :)
5 level 70+ chars: fal, lum, ist, fal, pul :scratch:
It's random. There are epople here that rush level 1's to hell jsut to do the hellforge quests.. maybe thay can elaborate, but I don't think they would do them unless they had a shot at the higher runes.

Hellforge rune drops:
- Normal: El - Amn
- Nightmare: Sol - Um
- Hell: Hel - Gul
clvl or number of players in the game does NOT influence rune drops.

does more chars in the game affect the total number of runes dropped or is it alway 2 like it seems to me?
Quest drop is ALWAYS 1 rune (+ some perfect and flawless gems) and is not affected by number of players in the game.

I do not know thougt what happens if several players with Hellforge quest are members in the same party. Logically thinking it should be 8 quest runes in one drop if 8 chars who hadn´t done this quest before is allied in the moment when the Stone destroys. I always do this quest alone - just to be sure that nobody else will grab my rune, so - I have no expirience of such situation.

If you do a Hellforge quest and more than one person gets the quest at the time, you'll still get only 1 rune, but you'll get the extra gems. I did this by accident once in normal, though I didn't mind at the time.
