Low runes dropping from forge So I'm basically new here, just started back in about a month ago after not playing since 1.09. I'm finally getting the hang of it again and am start to build some decent chars. I rush NM every once in a while so that I can aquire some runes for trading and rune words. Are there better ways to find good runes like that? If so, how? I heard single repairing the hammer makes for a better drop and I think this might work. Before hearing that, I usually got sol - hel from NM , and after I've gotten a pul, and average drop is lum or ko. Now I still had my forge in hell and wanted to wait to level because I also heard that drop depends on level. I got my zon up to 89 and figured I might as well do it since it will be a while till i get higher. So I clear it out get the hammer, single repair and wait in anticipation for the drop, and hoping for maybe ist as I've dropped that while being rushed before. The gems start falling, then the rune. Hel. What? This seems extremely low to me, and kind of disappointing because I know it will be a while until I can rush hell comfortably. Does anyone know why this drop was so bad? How do most people get their high level runes like ist, jah, ber, etc, the stuff that's good for most runewords? Is there a better way than what I'm doing?
