    How many Zods do you think have ever been found?

    I was wondering about this the other day. Due to Zod's extreme rareness, how many Zod runes have been found since LoD's inception, or since the last ladder reset? Anyone know anyone who's found a Zod?

    I've never found any hr, let alone a Zod. There's only one guy in my whole guild who's ever found one that I know of.

    Since LOD? I'd say 5.

    (I've found 2 HR's since LOD came out.)

    Only hrs I ever found where from the forge quest..mals ist and guls....if they count....

    Only 1 zod needed...then dupe city....

    I did find a SOJ this season. Probably best find ever. Interestingly the maggot queen lava bug thing dropped it while rushing a fellow forum member (or one of her minions not sure exactly) but I thought it was pretty cool.

    Over 30,000. I'm sure billions of enemies capable of dropping a zod have been killed by the millions of players of Diablo 2 in the 5 or so years zods have been able to drop.

    10,177 for about 5 yrs if at avg 5000 monsters able to drop ZOD were killed every second.

    See this SQL :badteeth:

    select floor((((61450628+19971454)/2)/((5000)*60*24))*5*12*30) from dual;

    FLOOR((((61450628+19971454)/2)/((10000/2)*60*24))*5*12*30)

    I still refuse to accept any rune below Vex as a true high rune. (Europe)

    Considering the amount of players who have played Diablo 2: LoD, i'd guess.. A freaking lot. Several Zods probaly drop per day.

    what I find funny is that ist and mal are considered hrs. And Gul, which is above both of them in the list, is not. And I do believe you are right. Otherwise, and the way things are going, before too long even el runes will be hrs as well lol. they probably already are and we simply dont know it yet :laugh:

    If it really comes to that point...

    *bnet pubby noob runs countess*
    *screams:"OMG OMG, countess dropped me 3 HR's!!!!*
    *look on the floor, sees 3x El rune...*

    I'm definatelly quitting Diablo then, and I'm making a vow right here and now that I'll break my CD's in atleast a dozen pieces...

    I wonder if it'll get to be like the Chaos Empire mod. HRs drop like crazy, and low runes less frequently (by drop, I mean are really easy to get). Like Dawnmaster said above, Els will be worth mucho stuffo.

    Well in the entire history of the SPF, there have been ~ 6 zods found. That's a pretty good sample, if you want to estimate the number of users here and the hours they play, as well as play style and the /players 8 command.

    Just VERY roughly guessing, I think you're looking at somewhere between 80 - 400 legit zods?

    Edit: And outside the SPF I can only recall 2 people saying they'd ever found a zod (that I thought might even remotely be true. Some idiot here made a post about finding 4 zods in one ladder season. :rolleyes:)

    Edit2 (I suck at getting it all in one post)

    According to ATMA you need to kill in the vicinity of 61 billion enemies (non-ghost types) for 1 zod rune.

    this is about right. (these monsters having to be a high lvl, 90+ i think, this would take MANY hell games, wrecking every minion, boss etc. id say about 150 legit zods ever found... just a guess)

    edit- in one rush i found a soj off hell andy, an Ohm off travincal, and an Ist off the forge. (cant remember mephy and diablo's drops but they were semi-good)

    lol tho sometimes what can give us the tuffest times in doing a runeword are the low runes most of us dont keep any of. An example of that was recently when I tried to do insight. And yes, I know all the runes are low enough. But with the others I save for spirits etc. then I tried finding tir. Did countess runs for half an hour or so before I got one. Made the insight (came out ok). later that day I did some chaos runs. And was like every other monster was making fun of me. I got FOUR tir runes lol.
