    Key Drops - no longer drop???

    I use a lvl 92 hammerdin to solo for keys in 1+p games

    So far out of 70 run not keys?

    Whats going on as usually I remember having loads in this amount of time. (returned to game after a break)

    I guess the only think i can say is make sure you run the correct monsters and check that its actually hell diff. Your hammerdin is perhaps so strong he doesnt notice :p

    Keys are still dropping. Do you run Nith, Countess and summoner or just one of them in a game?

    Its better to just run Nith, its faster and drops seem better with him. Then trade them up for hates and terrors

    Somtimes they drop somtimes they dont. Maybe next runs you will get a few key drops.

    Then Nihlathak must hate me. I never get keys from him.

    I also feel that keys really don't drop often...

    Maybe it's just a bad luck streak :scratch: ?...
    Make sure to run keys in 8-players games for better results.

    I dont think it makes that much of a difference. Running in 8 player games takes longer and is more dangerous. I only ever run in private games and get plenty of keys of Nith.

    As a matter of interest what realm are you on? I run Europe NL

    That's the point. If they dropped with every drop, UT wouldn't be that great of an experience.

    I had nearly an 80 run drought for keys. Just as I was bout to toss the d2 lod cd like a frisbee out the window I finally started getting some keys....

    Just luck really -- If i look over all my key runs (well over a 1000) the odds seem to be 1:12 over all -- but there were time were i got 5 keys in 10 runs and other times where there would be 30+ tries with no luck...

    IIRC the chances of a key drop dont depent on number of players in game.

    ya streaks are a statistical reality .. with every kill there's a CHANCE something will drop .. over time (sometimes a long period of time) the actual drop rate might mirror what the expected drop rate is, much like a lottery.

    it still feels crappy to have a bad run (no pun intended) .. but the next one might be far better!

    I find that the Keys drop pretty regularly for me. I can expect to find enough Keys to open all 3 portals in a few hours or so. Maybe I'm just lucky. :rolleyes:

    Yes it does. Nila has about 11% chance to drop a key in an 8 player game, thats why so many ppl run him in baals. Today I actualy had to race with someone to nila in a baalrun... Luckely he didnt knew about the haals of vaught wall pattern thingy. :tongue:
