well, it can be only 1 thru 6, so that would mean you have a 1 in 3 chance of rolling a 2 or less. if your about to make 3... odds are... well odds are your going to keep them no matter what they roll!

Imagine rolling a dice three times with 3 sides, A, B and C. I was asking what the probability would be for me to get ONE B OR C in THREE tries.

The chance for that is 1 minus the chance for it not to happen = 1 - 1/3 * 1/3 * 1/3 = 0.96 = 96%

Well...at least I am not trying it.

First try, Oh nuts! Ist BEFORE Ohm!
Second try, Ok... Amn, Ral, Mal, Ist... HEY! Oh NO!! FIVE sockets not FOUR!!
Third try, GOOD! Wait....NUTS! 2 BC 1 BO 1 BC...
Oh well...I'm Off to socket Grief! Where is that Six socket sword I had?

No, seriously, rolling anything higher than 2 (out of 6), should statistically be made in the first roll, since the chance is 2/3.
Plain maths, mate!

I, however, stand above laws of nature, and would roll 1's three times in a row.

You were ALMOST right anyhow. I got that 4%.

Try 1: +1 BO
Try 2: +2 BO
Try 3: +2 BO

Your luck is like mine then. I don't do runewords often for that reason.
