    Hardcore drops more runes?

    Hello,

    I have noticed that my hardcore characters find more runes, more often, and better quality runes than my softcore characters. At first I thought it was just luck, but after studying four different HC characters vs. four SC characters I have found that the hardcore characters collected on average of 23 more runes per difficulty level. This is in Single Player Mode- not on the realms.

    Is there something to this? Has anyone else noticed this?

    The game is exactly the same except for one small factor...

    Unless you're playing different patches it's just by chance that this is happening.

    yeah, the only thing thats different is that once you die you're dead. Everything else is the same.

    Perhaps you are just taking more time with the HC characters and noticing more runes? Or clearing more area's and killing more monsters?

    My initial thought that it was just luck was right then.

    Thanks :thumbsup:

    Yes, that's right. High runes aren't really worth anything on hardcore because they are so common. I'll trade you my 36% tarnhelm for your Ist. I'm also looking for a Vex rune and have some Sigon's Boots to offer (15 defense).
