Quality Runes from Helforge

I had noticed that when rushing old 1.09 characters to helforge the drops rune drops seemed to be higher then with only 1 person in the game. So I decided to test this w/ my new character (a shockidin).
I'm in a 4 person game in nightmare and am doing the quest on the way there a hel rune drops for a normal guy (my luck day i'm thinking). Then I hit the helforge and an UM RUNE:surprise: drops. I almost fell out of my chair.
Does anyone know if the quality of the rune dropped is dependent on the number of players in the game, or did I just get very lucky:scratch: ?

My numbers suggest you were just lucky. I am not done with my lists, but so far the Forge drops completely random between a certain interval of runes...it doesn't seem like number of players has anything to do with it.

Its given me MALs and ISTs even.

*beep* wrong....it DOES decide the amount of gems it drops. (for each that hasn't completed the quest)

But players in the game has nothing to do with the quality or number of runes (always 1) that drops.

Is that true, because it drops like 4 or 5 gems even if you do it solo....

Try standing with two characters that both need the quest, instead of just dropping one gem per drop, it now drops 2 gems.

But its hardly worth it, since you lose 1 rune from this.

It might only be worth it on normal mode where rune drops stinks.

I always do the quest solo, I guess I never noticed that.

I've boosted 3 people past the hellforge quest lately and their drops were: Ist, Ist, Gul.

My last three Hellforge drops: Pul, Fal, Lem

I see a pattern. :p

I did about 15 rushes with my level 89 hammerdin or something, each time I got Fal/Pul/Lem/Ko Runes. . .good if this had been ladder, but the thing is it wasn't. I then played through the game with a overlord and got a Um Rune. I then played through once more remaking my hammerdin since it was my first 1.1 character I remade him to use a low strength enigma. Again a Um Rune drops. I think, hm maybee if I rush now something good will drop? I do two rushes, what do I get, Ko runes. It's so annoying, I think pindle/forge hates me. . never give me one good item, except that nightwing's viel pindle gave me on ladder. . . .but that's the only good unique he's ever given me.
