    As everybody mentioned: runes and respecs.

    Atma does not work with essences, respec tokens and keys. This can however be solved, but if you're starting out from scratch and do not intend to time travel I will suggest you start out with GoMule.

    As somebody mentioned, you can go through the game as dual tree and respec to single tree. Meteorb and blizzballer are the standard suggestions. I'd recommend a Hydra/Orb. It's not as fast, but I found it to have reasonable kill speed and using Hydras as "scouts" provided great safety. However, my char was far from untwinked and never made guardian, as she died in WSK Hell.

    Welcome back! :thumbup:

    According to inDiablo.de's Drop Calculator, in 1.10-1.12 the worst chance of a Zod Rune dropping from a normal monster capable of dropping one was 1/61,450,629; since 1.13 it has been 1/3,841,314. The chance of Baal dropping one in Hell at /players 3 has gone from 1/2,926,221 to 1/178,728 (the chance of him dropping a Cham Rune has gone from 1/836,149 to 1/68,484).

    Running the Super Unique Council Members and their minions in Travincal in Hell has become popular due to the following odds at /players 7-8:

    Code:
    RUNE   DROP CHANCE
           1.13       1.10-1.12
    ---------------------------
    Cham   1/73,580   1/877,946
    Jah    1/49,054   1/585,297
    Ber    1/54,781   1/501,779
    Sur    1/36,521   1/334,520
    Lo     1/40,513   1/286,827
    Ohm    1/27,009   1/191,218
    Vex    1/28,453   1/163,994
    There are 11 Council Members in Travincal in Hell, so the chance of at least one of them dropping a Cham Rune is ~1/6,690 (1 - ( (73579/73580)^11) ). Although casual or questing players still aren't likely to find these runes, those actively seeking them should now measure the time it takes in tens of hours rather than hundreds.

    My mind hurt from reading that. You sound like a guy me and my brother stumbled upon. When he was recanting his go-abouts from earlier that day, he told about how he told about it to someone and then instantly told us that he just told us about it. And me and my brother talks about talking about that mostly.

    Google Translate always makes the output from spambots make so much more sense. Just translate from source language to lang #2, #3, and so on, and then back to the source.

    Guess I'll pop in here.

    All anecdote but here goes. I NEVER found a HR pre 1.13. Granted, I never tried grinding for them, but in SP 1.13, I've found ~30 since July :D Maybe 22 of those were from LK though.

    There used to be a program that would go through your atma stashes and generate a HTML page of all your items; with separate columns for Ethereal, and give you total numbers for things like runes and PGems, but I can't find mention of it. If I recall, the HTML page it generated was black with white text, and it was used in single player trading pretty often? Anyone recall what it's called?

    Gomule can do that at the touch of a button, now.

    But yeah, Flavie did that, though I could never get it to work.

    I guess I really need to go sort out Gomule, then. I think Flavie was right, though.

    Is there still an Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple answer thread here, or is that something I'm transposing from another forum over here?

    Apparently there was one but it was removed at some point because it wasn't really helpful for finding answers, iirc.

    Anyway, we ask lots of simple questions in the "anything goes D2 lounge" thread. So try there! Or here :p
