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?
