    OT - Rune math...

    I had a thought... The new 1.10 possibility to upgrade runes all the way to Zod made me think about how many El runes you'd need to get one Zod. After some calculating I landed at:

    1 Zod = 1,85 x 10^15 El (that is 185 followed by 13 zeros)

    These El runes would require 2,1 x 10^12 accounts to be muled (2100 BILLIONS accounts). And this excludes any and all gems needed to go through with the upgrading. Do you think Blizzard would be happy if I muled away a Zod rune in El runes? :)

    Heh, yeah, it's a pretty crazy amount of runes you need to do it. Also, I think someone determined that it wasn't possible for someone to cube a zod just from el runes. It would take much to long to do all that clicking.


    Better get started :D

    I could be wrong, but I believe runegrading is only possible with runes that are thul or higher.

    You could always upgrade the first 9 or 10 (sorry I forget). The new ladder thing is upgrading all the way. Edit: the first 9 or 10 you just need 3 runes in the cube, no additional ingredients required.

    @Toli - did you take into acct that it only takes 2 runes for the higher upgrades?

    Don't forget to add the space for cubes. and I think with the 2 runes he just did 3 because of the req. of a flawless.

    Relax Toli, no appologies needed from a "nonplaying" person, hell I wouldnt take the time to try and calculate it anyway, and if you look at it in Engineering terms you are close enuff with the proper "significant digits".

    I am like 1849999999999875 ELs short of my ZOD but I have my ETH 6 Sock Zerker, VEX and the other runes! GIB ELS PLZ!!!
