    yes. you can get higher from hell countess, but you get more consistent drops imho from nm.

    if you want high drops consistently, there's only hellforge.

    i did a bunch of each, nm appears to average @2 runes per run, hell countess is @1.2 or lower.

    i think the reason is that hell countess is more likely to drop items, while runes are more likely to appear during no-drops.

    hell countess can drop up to IST ( ? ) from her runedrop and up to VEX from her itemdrop (not very likely though)
    Don´t know about norm/nm countess since im not interessted in that, i´d say it´s a waste running NM countess unless you are playing untwinked and don´t have access to hell countess or something.

    Other good places for runes is:

    Flayer jungle act3 cause of the numbers of enemyes
    River of Flame / Chaos sanctuary act4 cause of the ghost-type monster (they have higher chance to drop runes)
    WorldstoneKeep act5 cause of the numbers of enemyes and sometimes ghost-type monsters.

    IIRC hephasto (the dude guarding hellforge) have the biggest chance of dropping a ZOD.
    I´ve heard council would be good aswell.

    (all above is in hell ofc)
