    Hell Hellforge.

    Well I've been trying to find out the absolute highest rune that drops from Hell Hellforge... But all I can seem to find is conflicting reports of either Vex/Gul being the highest. I've seen claims of people finding 5 or 6 Vex's from the Hellforge, but never seen a screenshot of it... Likewise with Gul's... So I ask, can a Vex drop from Hellforge? Or were these people just extremely lucky with a Vex dropping in the vicinity of the Hellforge every time, or perhaps it was just fabricated lies. Screenshots would be appreciated. Thank you! :)

    Re: Hell Hellforge.

    in short, Gul is highest.
    Where did you hear Vex dropping from HF?

    Re: Hell Hellforge.

    People talk about Vex's dropping from HF as a result of rushing in with numerous characters and cubing up the total. They're only using 'Vex' as a unit of measure, not as an actual rune. Hense "six Vexes" really means runes which could be cubed to six vexs or even cubed down... which can't be done, but is still used in the lingo.

    A Ber is worth 16 vex's.

    Re: Hell Hellforge.

    Not sure where I've heard it exactly... Google yielded some results with claims that Vex actually -dropped- not that they got enough runes to cube up 6 Vex's... Perhaps it goes as far as Vex on the realms or HC realms or something... Diablowiki claims Vex is the highest rune to drop from the Hell Hellforge as of patch 1.12... So maybe people are misguided or there's just no hard evidence but it is indeed possible... Regardless of either Vex or Gul being the highest, I never got a Vex. lol

    13 different runes can fall from each hellforge (norm, night, hell). The highest of these 13 in hell is Gul. I think Um is the highest in night, and Thul in norm.

    Re: Hell Hellforge.

    Guessing is where these questions come from. The first non-OP post linked straight to the correct answer (granted, trusting the arreat summit has a few downfalls too, but they are very minor these days). Why throw out random guesses on top of that.

    As nosignal linked to (11 runes each):

    Normal: El - Amn
    Nightmare: Sol - Um
    Hell: Hel - Gul

    http://diablo.wikia.com/wiki/Vex_Rune

    This wiki seems to state that the Vex is the highest... This is where a lot of my initial speculation generated from... I had a look at the patch notes that are listed on the page... No mention of Vex being made the new highest rune from Hellforge... Perhaps the people were just misguided, lol

    Re: Hell Hellforge.

    That's the fun of the Internet these days, there are answers to every question, all that's left is to figure out the correct answer.

    As far as D2 goes, the knowledge here is certainly above average.

    Of course other forums/wikis wil probably say the same. Good luck.
