    hellforge drops?

    if you remember your recent hellforge drops, please post them.
    But only if you remember all recent hellforge drops, not only the good or only the bad ones.
    I want to have a rough idea of what the chances are to get a good rune and if hellforge runs are worth it.

    i am currently capable of playing in hell, but not to kill fast and certainly not with mf gear on. Therefore mfing is a problem. maybe hellforge runs can be an alternative way to get some trading matereal.

    if anyone on europe HCL wants to do hellforge runs but needs a player to play and do the runs with, please message me *DyingWish

    i have a sorc capable of wandering trough hell, but she is pretty damn slow at it. If you have a better character for the rushes that'd be nice, and im sure we can find a fair way to share the runes.

    Best would it be of course if we can do this with 8 players where 1 guy rushes 7 others to hell act4 then does the hellforge 7 times in a row.
    I think it could be a nice project this way.

    For those that still dont know, yes you can get in hell act4 without level restrictions (for the ancients)

    On a side note, would this also make those characters viable mules since they were played for such a long time?

    i hope the runs would not take 2 hours.

    other than that, of course they can be used as mules, if you do all your mules like this, you can mule in hell difficulty, sounds cool huh ?

    I'm in east, but my last hellforge drop was a Mal. On a side note I got Mal from Countess last night, so it might be easier for you to do Countess runs, since she's easier than the Hellforge beasties.

    If you have 0 mf, would it help getting better runes?

    It wouldn't help or hurt either way. MF does not affect rune drops. What happens is the game decides the item type it is going to drop, then the quality. Then MF kicks in to decide if it is magical, rare, set, or unique. So Runes are purely luck all the way. If the game decides a rune is going to drop, it then decides which kind. The decision is tested against the monster's lvl and if it passes, that rune is dropped, if not it goes down to the next rune etc. Or it can decide to drop an El rune, which EVERYTHING IN THE GAME DROPS FOR ME CONSTANTLY

    I seem to recall that someone tested hellforge rune drops in 1.09 hell and in 100 runs got roughly equal numbers of each of the medium-rare runes sol to um.
    In 1.10 you can certainly get up to ist (I have had three). The question is, can you get higher? Does anyone know?

    I have about 70-80 characters that can do both the Nightmare and Hell mode Hellforge quests...I just haven't gotten around to doing all the hellforge quests yet.

    I'll give you a list of my findings once I get it done.
