    NM Andy has the best chances of dropping a SoJ. But keep in mind that Hell bosses can drop other nice things as well, even if their SoJ dropping chances is a bit lower.

    Shenk is actually an overseer, not an observer ;p

    I haven't plugged the numbers, but I suspect killing all of the NM council will net more SOJs over time, as there are several of them, and are extremely easy to find.

    nm council can also spawn Dwarf Star and Raven Frost so only one unique ring of 51 is a soj instead of 1 of 31 at Andy which gives you every time a quest drop

    I think the idea is that although the chances are lower than andy dropping you one it is MUCH easier and quicker to kill shenk than it is to go farming andy. Ditto for council - though they're a little harder to kill.

    In terms of time (not runs) it might be better to run Council and Shenk.

    It may be a rumour about shenk dropping more sojs and the logistics dont work as he can drop the higher lvl rings but the only soj Ive found since 1.09 came from hell shenk a week ago.:grin:

    You need to play Expansion in order to play around with runes.

    If you do decide to run NM Andy, it's best to use a character that has glitched Andy.

    ANDERIAL GLITCH:

    1) Kill Andy THE FIRST TIME in a particular difficulty.

    2) Talk to Warriv

    3) Exit the game.

    If you do this, every time you then kill Andy in that difficulty you will get a glitched drop: only rares, sets or uniques. There may be other ways to do this, but I know this works on LOD, classic, realm or single player.

    odds for Soj

    ATMA calc (400MF):
    NM Andariel (1st drop), P1 (solo game): 1:1509
    NM Andariel (1st drop), P3 1:1030
    NM Schenk the Overseer 1:62940
    Hell Schenk the Overseer 1:66957

    I think you can run Andy once in a minute, Schenk once in 25 secs (rough estimation, I can run Andy twice in a minute in SP with constant map)

    Yep. I didn't even learn about it until v1.11. I just automatically do it whenever I now kill Andy.
