Other Items(Not Runes)-
If everyone could contribute to this thread we could see the effectivnes of these runs.
I'll post my stats later day or tommorow. Start poppin those chests!!!

P.S. Tell us what charachter you use. Mines a hammerdin, due to his vigor and holy shield its a sinch.

Check out the SPF, there are a few threads about this

My results of 988 LK runs (no prizes for guessing why I stopped on the 988th):

ber rune,
gul rune,
um rune
pul rune x 3

but if you're playing on bnet, why are you bothering to find runes?

edit: A sorceress with 200% fcr is by far the best character for this. telekenesis + teleport are your friends

Uh, it's hard to make runewords without runes. Also, some runes are nice for their own properties.

You can't just think "oh, you're on bnet, everyone dupes runes, so they must be free". Very few people actually dupe, and those people certainly aren't giving away free runes, they're selling them for real money. If you have nothing or very little, it's difficult if not impossible to trade for higher runes.

Checking chests in Kurast doesn't sound like playing a game, but like doing monotone work. It seems it's just as unrewarding as making Countess runs. I for myself don't see any reason for doing Kurast runs if your characters are good enough to kill monsters quickly in hell act 3 or higher.

The one HR found doesn't tell anything about drop chances for high runes and it could have happened anywhere in hell act 3 or higher. It was simply luck. You probably have to do a million of Kurast runs to get meaningful statistics regarding HRs.

Regarding monster drops, better check drop chances with ATMA. Too bad that program doesn't show droppings from chest-like and barrel-like objects.

I gave up after the 7th runs. Just too boring, found 1 eld 2 GC, and thousands of gabbage. I'd rather run NM countess, at least she give me a RAL/TAL/ORT/THUR/AMN everyrun on the average and it takes only 2 minutes

Hi

I do lots of LK runs when waiting on my friends to arive on Bnet, mostly for the flawless gems so i'm never disapointed when i've found nothing special (in 8 player games u always find Flawless gems)

My best finds are a Guardian Angel, a Shako, some small charms 19 and 18 life and a Sur rune :D

I also like to do Mephi in the same game when the ppl in the game are not questing (like trade game's and such) when ppl are questing i help them out if they ask me to.

So I don't really do lot's of LK runs (between 3 - 5 on an evening of playing) and i like it that way, so it doesn't get boring.


Bert

PS: i used to do more runs to get me some um's to get my hammerdin started, now he's completly equiped with all the typical hammerdin goodies so I like LK runs, it got my char started and once u have a good char stuff starts dropping everywhere it seems, u only need patience.

I do a lot of LK runs with my bowzon (Harmony weapon + Freezing arrow). Can't really say how many I do per day or how many I did in total this season, but almost every day of running LK I collect on average:
- 20+ pgems
- at least one rune Lem-Ist, and a ton of lower ones
- 5-10 charms/jewels worth keeping for trade/personal use
- weapon and armor stands resulted in numerous Eth CVs, CAs, Threshers, 15ed Amors like Dusk etc

Some really good drops I found in these runs:
- 2x 313 poison sc (worth 9-10 ist)
- a few 4s GMB/MB +3 (not sure if from chest or not but found it there anyway)
- skillers with life (found quite a few)
- 3-17-19 sc

I probably forgot to mention all the goodies I found in LK, but I am quite satisfied with LK runs in total. Requires little work if nothing else.

I'd rather do cow runs. Lots of gems. Monarchs drop fairly regularly (worth Pul on USWest if you get 4 sockets or Larzuk a plain one) and the right Sacred Targe or +3 Grand Matron can net you some serious runes. Also, cows are fun to stomp on. It also seems like the most "I found a legit HR" stories happen on cows.

that may be true. But it's going to be far easier to find something that you can trade for runes than finding the runes themselves

dual ali baba (no sockets required)
wealth armor
chance guards

and suddenly, opening chests becomes very very profitable. :)

Yes, but if no one looked for runes, No one could trade their items 4 runes...

So u'r basicly saying that we are seeking stuff to trade them for duped HR's?

In fact, i believe you are right but look at it this way: I have a lot of fun with my enigma, who i never could have traded for if there weren’t no duped HR.

If all HR where legit, the prices would sky rocket and almost nobody except the very rich or very lucky would be able to enjoy an enigma.

Mind I am not promoting duping or trading duped runes, i even believe bliz could do something about it: they should increas the drop rate for HR or make HF do better drops.

I’m sorry for the OT.

Did some runs yesterday

Time to complete runs: 23 min
Run1- GC +1 pala Combat plain
Run2- eld, el, el
Run3- SC + 18 life

Can we expect chests and props to be incorporated in the sweet ATMA drop calc?
Hehe, I've been asked that question so many times lately. As it is, I'm rather busy in R/L and I only just got my paws on a Mac so I'm starting to look into ATMac .. still a rather steep learning curve ahead of me.
