First world high rune drop :D

today has been a pretty good day for me, out of about 20 countess runs in the past few hours I got 2 puls, an um, and a shako. other than countess and hellforge this is my first high rune drop in all my time playing d2, even though its just a *gul* :crazyeyes:

Re: First world high rune drop :D

imo, gul isn't a high rune. Vex and above are high runes to me. I think most people agree with me on that. Especially because of the latest patch. i miss the days where all high runes were treated as equal and people considered ist and above as high runes. Last week i wanted to trade 3 ist for a vex, and people then say "vex is worth 4 ist" lol. If I had 4 ist i could make my own vex..

Gul is not a high rune, I reserve that name for the runes that cannot be obtained from the hellforge. Gul is half a highrune though on ladder, where it can be cubed with another Gul into Vex. On nonladder, Gul is pretty much junk.

I've also seen some outrageous ignorance of rune cubing in some Battle.net trades. Imagine someone offering 3 Pul for Um? Would make sense on nonladder, but on ladder this is first grade stupidity.

I wanted to trade 1 ist vs 16 lems but nobody wanted to trade ._.

I once tried to trade 50-something Ists for a Ber rune.
No dice. I didn't have enough Ist runes.

Nice find even though its a mid-high rune.

Ive got 2 ists this week doing LK runs nad nothing else above lem.

My only HR found was back in 1.09 during the cow runs....and it was a Sur and at that time they did nothing :yuck: The best I could do was trade it for 3 sojs.

Re: First world high rune drop :D

yea back in 1.12 I got a few guls off hell hellforge and a total of no more than 2 ists from hell countess. but this being my first super low (.01% I believe) world rune drop, even though its just a gul, it made me pretty happy

Congratulations on your rune drop, I'm sure you'll find something even better in no time. :D

I've played diablo 2 for years and years and the best rune drop I ever had was UM from my helforge. Since 1.13 has come out I've found at least 1 of every rune except ber, cham and zod. It feels pretty damn good to have my own self made rune word.

Finding a Gul is never a bad thing....just keep in mind you're still a damn long sight from getting an Enigma :)

Gratz on the drop, but I am sure you will find better drops in no time :)

Me and a friend have been lucky enough to find 1xIst, 1xGul, 1xVex, 2xLo & 1xcham, all within the last 3 weeks. So really can't complain :)

Sorry to rain on the parade but Gul isn't a high rune anymore. Really, nowadays only Vex+ counts as a high rune, and vex is questionable.
