    Lower Kurast (hell): Run 401-500

    It is a bit scary... I'm still not getting bored. I love finding all those gems, charms, jewels and runes, even if most of them are completely useless. But you're here for the results I suppose... :D

    Runs were done with a level 90 Blizzard sorceress on /players 8, all hollow logs/chests/corpses/stashes/skeletons were opened, and the average run time was 3 and a half minutes.

    Grand charms: 72 and no skillers... Boo!
    Large charms: 70 (all boring... Boo!)
    Small charms: 49, kept these: 3 mana/6 mf, 20 life, 4% res all, 11 life/4% resist all, 29 AR/18 life

    Jewels: 58, all crafting material

    Uniques/sets:

    Pompei's wrath
    Spire of Lazarus
    Milabrega's orb x2
    Angelic sickle
    Manald heal (7%)
    Razor's egde
    Cathan's sigil
    The Chieftain
    Razortail
    Dangoon's teaching
    MAgnus' skin
    Ripsaw
    Culwen's point x2
    Spirit keeper (grail, from an armour rack)
    Bloodfist (eth)
    Woestave
    Whitstan's guard
    Trang Ouls scales
    M'avina's tenet
    Dwarf star
    Soulfeast tine (eth)
    Bloodletter
    Skystrike
    Naj' circlet
    Sigon's shelter

    Runes:

    Tal x11
    Io
    Ral x6
    Amn x5
    Ort x7
    Dol
    Shael x2
    Thul x3
    Hel
    VEX!!!!

    Looks like HotO is finally within my reach! And then of course there were 119 perfect gems. Still haven't started my crafting/rerolling spree, but I think I will do that some time next week. Time for run 501! :eek:

    Congratulations on the Vex. If one supposes another could 'earn it' by showing insanity-grazing dedication, you've earned it ;) GL with your next 100.

    11 life/4% resist all :)

    I love reading these posts, they are very inspiring. I have actually done 5 LK runs based no reading this... I have no idea how you have done 500. A BER must be next... GL

    Congats on the nice finds (especially the Vex). You should consider playing
    1.07 if you like doing Lower Kurast runs. Although it has no players 8
    settings, you can rack some great things while chest running. :)

    Illiana, congrats on the Vex. It's not a Ber, but now your just a Zod away from BotD. How many do you plan to do? Another question did the Vex come from? Superchest?

    I never have any luck when i try to find runes. My best finds are always just playing the game. I also hate the fact that it was my hammerdin that found both of my highest runes. Vex and Gul.

    Still its great to see these threads to get an idea of what you might have to put in to reap a high rune.

    Congrats on the Vex!! I knew it would pay off. I think it's basically like pindle runs (or any other runs) that you WILL get something good, if you don't give up. It's just a matter of invested time! Great! :thumbsup:

    Thank you again for the detailed report. The information is really great.

    I'm suprised you can keep the time per run down so low, while still ID'ing so much. I tend to waste a lot of time with rares etc, trying to decide if I'll keep it (when I'm running Meph/Pindle/etc)

    Congratulations on the VEX. Thats a nice find, a nice reward for your dedicated research.

    You are tempting me away from my necros; I don't think a skelemancer can run Kurast at a reasonable speed -- minions are too willing to get distracted and fighting everything.

    Congrats on the find! Keep up the good work. Seeing the results of 10000 LK runs will be most useful for the stats junkies here :)

    My LK runner has large free room in inventory, something like 5x4 free space (usually I go with only 3x4 or 2x4 free space in inventory) - it helps a lot.

    EDIT: Illiana- congrats to VEX, if I didn't see the rune results in the beginning of your post and bad results in charms/jewel section, I thought that you finally scored a decent rune. And you did.

    I am super happy that rune wise the runs finally payed off for you :D Think about it... you would need 4 Ist's to cube a Vex... now how many Countess runs would that take?

    Good you are not bored yet too, their are higher runes out their waiting for you to find them... keep up the good work :cool:

    That's exactly it. How many Countess runs would it take to get 4 ists? I would venture to ay a Hell of alot.

    Congrats on the Vex!
