    Lower Kurast (Hell): Run 901-1000

    If I am going to be admitted to the SPF looney farm, could you all please wait until after I've found a Ber? Thanks! :D

    Runs were done with a level 91 Blizzard sorc (330 mf) at /players8, all chests/hollow logs/corpses etc. were investigated. Average time per run was 3 and a half minutes.

    Grand charms: 63 (kept: +1 assassin traps//4 dex, +1 druid elemental//26% gold
    Large charms: 64 (these are easily the most boring charms. No keepers here!)
    Small charms: 60 (kept: 19 life, 6% mf, 5% mf)
    Jewels: 54 (kept: 35% ed//4 minimum damage, 6%mf//-15% requirements)

    Uniques/sets:

    Dangoon's teaching
    The Chieftain
    Civerb's cudgel
    Hellplague x2
    Arctic binding
    Bartuc's cutthroat
    Vidala's vetlock x2
    Butcher's pupil
    Arcanna's flesh
    Vidala's barb
    Demonhorn's edge
    Tancred's weird
    Angelic armour
    Tancred's skull
    M'Avina's tenet
    LAnce guard
    String of ears
    Steelclash
    Heart carver
    Bonehew
    Natalya's boots
    Isenhart's horns
    NAgelring (30% mf)
    Hawkmail
    Cleglaw's pincers
    Manald heal (6%)
    The minotaur
    Viadala's snare
    Sigon's wrap
    Isenhart's parry
    Bladebone
    Nagelring (20%)
    Hsarus iron heel
    Death's touch
    Sigon's shelter
    Shadowfang
    The Gnasher (grail)
    Tancred's crowbill
    Tearhunch
    Aldur's stony gaze
    Bladebuckle
    M'Avina's icy clutch
    Jalal's mane

    Runes:
    Ort x4
    Thul x6
    Ral x7
    Sol x5
    Hel x2
    Dol
    Tal x16 (leet...)
    Amn x4
    Shael x2
    Io x2
    Lum
    Ko

    Still no Ber. Ah well. I actually started doing these runs because I was looking for skill charms, and I didn't do the runs on nightmare difficulty because I liked the fact that on Hell there was the possibility for high runes.

    Time to start my next series of 1000 runs! :p

    1000 runs and still no high rune? No wonder we are suspicious when some g0zu first time poster claims he found two Beer r00ns in one LK run :rolleyes:

    Just keep running, the big drop is just around the corner* :thumbsup:

    *Really, it has to be

    After all this running you must be close to the big one. Dont know how many runs it took for me to get a Sur rune but I only did sewers L2 runs. Very fast

    man 3 and a half minutes per run is pretty fast. i think it would take me a while just to memorize where all the logs and whatnot are.

    :eek:

    I'm just gonna say this. You are easily the most persistent LK runner I think I've ever seen. Good luck finding that high rune, I think you should be getting close. 1000 runs...wow...

    LK Runs don't seem appealing anymore..

    I know that on my first few runs I found a Gul Rune, but nothing better after that.

    I quit doing them a long time ago. I think I made it to 30 runs.

    IMO, Countess and a lot of cubing is much funner, and entertaining.

    Whoa 1000 runs? Good achievment. Still no BER? Hmmm, maybe high runes are just myth?

    Maxgerin also did 1000 runs, got no more than a single Ist I believe, after cubing. High runes are just about luck. Just go and make a gosu build that kan do p8 hell with 200 mf and spend a month in level 80+ areas :p

    Because of all the chests/logs/corpses and the relatively few monsters. Once you kill Meph/Council, the little guys in the robes all run away from you.

    Highest that can drop is a Ber, which is what Iliana is hoping for.

    Ok, I still don't get why people do LK runs :) Nice change of environment though.

    HF= hell hellforge? In that case, one would need 32 Guls to cube a Ber, with a chance of 1/11 to get a Gul, you'd have to do aproximately 352 runs.

    Heh. I can see it now.

    Thrugg or some other stat geek comes through and states;
    "Whoops. I made a mistake. You can't even find a Gul in Lower Kurast. My bad."

    Honestly I think you're not helping the "LK is a good place to find runes" idea.

    Because some guys get a high level rune every 100 runs :D...

    Is the same with countess i smile every time someone says "yaa I found a Ist/Gul/Mal in 100 Runs and 3 Puls and 2 Um's" :)

    I made 500 runs and got 1 Pul From Countess....

    The good runes are out there... you just have to be persistent (which you are) and lucky (which you could use a little more of). I certainly feel bad as I did nowhere around 1000 LK runs to get lucky... twice :(
