First HR ever found

I was running countess today and did the normal zeal fanat slash n kill business. finished that and to my surprise the little ole girl dropped me a mal rune and a Tkey. that mal is the first HR ive ever found and probably the best thing I've found this ladder season.:cool: sorry if this sounds like gloating but im not used to finding "good stuff" as they say.

Congrats on the find.

This reminds me of when I found my first HR. A Sur rune...

....10 hours before the last ladder reset >.<

The world of Diablo 2, hates me =( lol.

That's an awesome find. And considering Mal runes are worth more and more now because people wanna make those secksey Griefs.

Unless I'm missing something here, HR is considered Vex and up?

Mal is lower than Ist and Gul, which are both lower than Vex...?


Diabloii.Net Member
Yeah, but a lot of people are desperate for Mal runes, because it's used for Grief.
I know people ask to trade it 1:1 as a HR.

It all depends on the realm you are on.

On EU HR = vex+

On USeast and USwest (as I understand) HR = mal+

On europe, HRs are what you can't get from a lucky hellforge.

That is:
Gul is not a HR
Vex is a semi-HR worth around 1/2 HR before dupes take over.
Ohm is the first HR worth around 6 ists before dupes take over.

All other HRs are usually worth 6 ists too, although they are extremely scarce in the very start of a ladder, and at ladder start HRs are often only traded for other HRs.

EDIT: Sur and Cham don't have as many popular RWs, so their value drop faster than the rest. Usually stops at 4 ists for a while. All before dupes take over.
