Lower Kurast (Hell): Run 801 - 900

I have lots of time on my hands, obviously. Waiting for the results of my last exam has some advantages after all! (Well, it's only my last exam if I passed it... otherwise I'd have to retake it. :D ) Anyways, I completed yet another set of 100 Lower kurast runs. Runs were done with a level 91 Blizzard sorc sporting ~330 mf, at /players8. All chests/hollow logs/corpses etc. were investigated.

Grand charms: 78 (Four skillers: +1 sorc lightning, +1 sorc fire//4 strength, +1 necro poison & bone//1-3 fire damage, +1 druid elemental//4 dexterity)
Large charms: 49 (no keepers)
Small charms: 67 (kept these: 20 life, 5% resist all, another 20 life, 15 life)
Jewels: 54 (kept these: 38% ed, 26%ed//8 dex)

Unique/set:
Iratha's cuff
Nokozan relic x2 (so disappointing... I get my hopes up every time a gold piece of jewellery drops)
Islestrike
Visceratuant
Rattlecage
Gravepalm
Venomgrip
The diggler
Berserker's hauberk
Iratha's collar
Arcanna's sign
Thunderstroke
Berserker's headgear
Sparking mail
Soul harvest
Telling of beads (grail!!! have at least one of all green amulets now)
Kinemil's awl
Coldkill
Isenheart's case
Rusthandle
Blastbark
Death bit
Ichorsting
Nature's peace (my third... I'd prefer a SoJ :p )
Griswold's edge
Gore riders
Snake cord
Vidala's ambush (grail!)
Civerb's icon
Silks of the victor
Bloodfist
Vidala's vetlock
Magnus' skin
Arcanna's deathwand
Rune master (3 sockets)
Sigon's gauntlets
Stoutnail (eth)

Runes:
Lem
Ral x3
Io
Tal x9
Thul x5
Amn x6
Ort x11
Sol x4
Hel
Dol x3

And a grand total of 117 perfect gems.

On a sidenote, I still feel sane. Really, I do. *Illiana gets up and starts dancing with the pink elephants.*

Hmm... still no high r00n? That's dumb luck. The next/last(?) set of runs just have to give you a decent rune. The Telling of Beads is nice but still...

Good luck with that :thumbsup:

Yeah the runes are a bit lagging this time, but the other items make up for it. 4 nice skillers and some usefull items besides it make another 100 runs not wasted! :)

Would the rune drops improve with less MF? Or do chests etc. work differently from the infamous Countess runs?

MF has nothing to do with runes on either. What makes a difference on countess runs is player setting. A high player setting on countess will cause her to drop more items. Items are dropped before the runes are, and there's a limit of 7 items total. So if she drops 4 items, you can only get 3 runes. But MF has absolutely nothing to do with rune drops.

What I would find interesting is if after 1000 runs (I'm assuming thats all you are planning on doing) is to compile all your runs, and give a listing of runes found. Doesn't mean I'm gonna run out and try it, but still interesting. :)

Just be careful when you wake up in a tree. That first step is a doozy.

Good luck with the exam Illiana...if only you've put 1/10 the effort into it as you have with these runs you should ace it:) Nice skillers! Go go Ber rune.

I worry about you Illiana ... really, I do. However, I also applaud your determination. You must really like these runs to do so many.

Keep being sane alright? :thumbsup:

Hang in there Illiana. I'm working to collect on bets that you won't find it before the 1000th run :thumbsup:

How come the runes were less this time though, doing anything different?

What are the actual chances of a high rune dropping on the thousandth run? I'm guessing still next to nil.

The chances of a high rune dropping on the thousandth run are no better than the chances of a high rune on the first run, the second run, or the millionth run. If you mean what are the chances of a high rune dropping by the thousandth run, then it's several orders of magnitude higher than the chances of a high rune by the first run (though still quite low).

Does Urlik's guide actually say what the odds are in chest popping for a Ber rune in Act3 Hell?

Probably really bad.

But how bad considering that Illiana is popping every chest, skeleton, log and bucket as well as killing everything in sight? Times that by 1000 runs ... probably still barely scratches the surface for a Ber.
