Runes actually drop

Had a good day yesterday, with a vex dropping in the hell tombs off a champion death beetle - my meteorb sorc was helping 7 other chars through the Duriel quest. Then later a mal dropped in the hell throne.

The mal didn't surprise me (though it was nice), but the vex in the tombs did. I guess it shows that killing tons of monsters fast in hell difficulty can pay off. Probably didn't hurt to be in an 8-player game. It also doesn't hurt to be out front doing all the killing, because you see all the drops immediately.

xoxo,

Greer (lvl 97 sorc)

Wait... high runes can drop from monsters?! All this time the only place I thought I could find them was from the trade window.

That monkey avatar may be a bit overdone. There's what, at least three people with it here?

Jonw is just hallucinating! Runes indeed only appear in the trade window as Almost posted.

Actually I just found an Ist rune about 15 minutes ago from a critter on a key run.

So far in the last years since runes were introduced I have found a few Puls and Mals, an Ist or two, Vex, Ohm, Lo and Ber. Also Gul in NL but who cares.

Shenk & gang dropped me a Ber. 2 months later, Eldritch topped that & left me a Cham. Now I got 2 legit high runes sitting pretty on my mule... :smiley:

Got ist from countess, 2 x vex from both hell cows and doing hell cs runs, and I'm pretty sure I got a mal from some monster. Off topic, but also found 2 pcombs, 2 chillling charms in nm cs....i was shocked
