rune hunting

just started playing after a long time and wanted to try out some of the awesome new rune words! I was wondering were the best spot was to find runes, wanted to try out infinity with a sorceress, and Ber runes look like a problem finding :D

Thanks in advance

For me, it's better for me to MF for items to trade for a Ber rune then find one. If I did find one, I'll probably keep it since most of the runes in the market are duped.

Hell Countess and Hellforge are probably your best bets, but I don't think they drop you the higher end runes.

Hell Countess has her special drop of 0-3 runes (around 1:1100 for Ist, and then increasing odds down to El which is the item she drops the most of). She could drop up to Lo, but she doesn't have any better odds than any other boss of doing that. Random uniques down there can drop any rune but Zod, and should be killed for that reason (and because most of them are pussies;))

Hell Hellforge gives one rune, Hel up to Gul, with equal odds for each.

Hell Forge is just about luck...Your character level has nothing to do with it. Difficulty does have something to do with it so don't expect a Gul in Nightmare.

Lower Kurast, Countess, Hellforge are good places to get runes...The River Of Flame and The Chaos Sanctuary are also good because there are lots of monsters and ghost type monsters have a slightly higher chance to drop runes. Rune hunting is just luck, even if you play exlusively in areas that have good chances of rune "droppings" you will most likely never see any high runes:( I've played 4 years and have only ever found 1 high rune.
