    Hello all, been lurking around here on-and-off for many a years - would pop by and search out the info I needed, I've finally broken down and created an account so figured I would go ahead and say hello, and now to the point..

    Been running LK lately to gather up runes, gems, charms and jewels. The other day I found a decent map (Super chests are right next to WP) Alas, there is only one campfire - I've kept the map for one reason, and will keep it until I get what I want. I have a quite stable Sacred Targe rack, where I get the targe drop probably 6-7/10 runs.. I've already managed to get quite a few white 45's, even one superior one with 45 Res.

    Though since I already have this rack at the ready I decided I should stick it out and try to get a juicy Exile base for ever come a day I would like to build one. I have to say I'm getting quite irritated, I am not finding many ethereal targes, and when I do the RES is quite awful, I think the best I have managed to snag up thus far is a 38 RES all.

    Would anyone have any idea/stats on what the chances are to find ethereal compared to white? I think I read somewhere I was looking at 1/4k odds of a chance of getting the base I wanted - but even once I find a 40+ Res eth base I need to hope the cube recipe is nice to me and grants me 4SOC.

    So there's that, thanks for reading! Any info/encouragement would be great.

    (~ I know Sirpoops had a rack of this sort but I couldn't find a thread showing how long it took him to get the base ~)

    What Nulio said, I'm looking to Eth-Bug it once I get the right base :)

    Well at least I've found this so far today, so that's something - it's been a while..

    Ethereal odds are 1/10. I do not know the actual affix odds, but you would need to roll the highest affix and then roll a high number within that. Once you have a high res eth shield, you now have a 50% chance to get four sockets. (Pretty sure it rolls 1-6 still on the cube recipe, rolling 4, 5 or 6 will get you dour sockets.

    Make's it tempting to lower /p to 3 in order to spawn less NPC. I can tell whenever I will spawn the ST off the rack judging by if I get a NPC in my path before I click it, lowering the player count would make the ST rack more stable making it quicker to get the base I want, and therefore let me move on to roll a better map for just hunting runes and the such.

    Yea.. Perhaps I'll do that, from what I can tell you still can get all the runes aside from Jah, Cham, Zod - regardless of /p count in 1.13, correct?.

    E: Got a nice 'Dream' base for if the time ever come's I want to make that I guess,

    Hey, welcome to the SPF! It's really good to see a lot of lurkers deciding to post recently. Since you've been lurking for a while, you probably know where the stickies and rules are. Be nice to EU's, definitely drop by the bar for a drink and some spam, and enjoy yourself. Good luck getting that 4os eSacred Targe!
