Looking for a Utility...

I'll be very, very upset with myself if someone posts a "a quick search gave me this link" answer to this question, because I tried my darnedest to no success...

I've seen mention, in the past, of a program that can count up yer Runes and display them, and tells you your "net worth", etc.

Could someone please point me in the direction of such a program?

Here is a link to the thread about it.
Nothing I couldn't find with a quick search. :wink3:

edit: Truth be told it did take a few minutes. :badteeth:

Thanks a huge bundle. Seems I just didn't go back far enough in time!

*kicks xduckster in the shins just for trying to show me up, but it's okay because I'm wearing this silly rubber rooster outfit*

Just to give you some tips on searching:
I used advanced search and limited my search to the single player forum. It took a search or 2 to figure out that it was silospen who wrote the program. Then, I looked at all threads created by silospen and wallah!

Glad I could help.

Actually last week I was bored so I wrote a similar program in excel when I was trying to calculate the runes I still needed for my crappy CtA. It didn't use the atma dump. I put the number in from flavie and got my results. If you want I can post that program.
I found that my program was a bit more versatile because you can decide not to use all of your runes in the calculations.

Flavie counts Runes as well (and shows what you would have after upgrading)

I've not really compared but it might actually be faster to run the countess a bit for these 17 "cubed" runes.

I will argue against cubing and have done the math. If you're looking for Pul or higher runes, you can find them faster than you can cube Hel and lower runes, and that's not counting locating PGems. Once that is taken into consideration its probably around Ko runes where you can find Puls faster than you can cube up to them.

Standard Disclaimer: Of course if you enjoy putting several things in the cube, pushing a button, and seeing different things come out of the cube then have at it (or try crafing and rerolling).

Of course, I do check the Runes tab on Flavie, its great to be able to see the info right there in a tool that is already so handy.

So if I am looking for a Lem and Um rune, would I be better off looking for it rather than going down the cubing road? If so, does NM countess drop either of those?

Thanks.

I have not checked if they can, but the will drop with better chances from hell.

Just don't expect them to drop in a few runs, specially the Um will require some runs before you either find it or cube it.

NM Countess only drops of to Io runes with her special rune drop. I'm sure she's a bit faster run and it probably seems simpler to run her than move to hell but it will take 486 Io runes to cube the Um alone. With a 1 : 80 drop chance, you're looking at 38,888 NM countess runs to get the runes to cube an Um.

Cubing sounds nice and can be handy to cube up one or two levels but its an exponetial function and adds up way faster than you would imagine.

If you need an Um and a Lem and aren't already prepared to HF rush then Hell countess is by far the best bet.

I guess I can shelf the possibility of getting the Um and work on getting the Lem as that is probably more realistic (and desired). Off to running Hell countess I suppose. Thanks for the answers Randall and jjscud. Much appreciated.
