    runes drop like crazy in 1.13?

    I was just playing around for a couple hours, and already found a jah in a basket and a mal in a coffin. No iron maiden?

    Is this hell mode or super nerfed mode?

    Re: runes drop like crazy in 1.13?

    That's luck. I've managed to finally make fort for my barb after playing virtually every day since 1.13 was released. The higher drop rate isn't ideal for SP people who can do 4 trav runs in a minute, and some people will always get lucky, but imo it's necessary if you want to give most legitimate players a chance to make some of the high-end runewords.

    I'll agree that they could've nerfed IM instead of removing it but unfortunately for us it's an old game they don't want to spend too much resources on.

    Runes drop like crazy , riiiight .

    My strafer runs all lvl 85 areas , Lower kurast , Travincal.
    My sorc runs Hell Andariel and Mephisto
    My Necro runs lvl 85 areas , Hell Countess , Diablo and Baal .

    With those 3 characters I have pretty much every area in the game on farm .

    High runes collected so far " 0 "

    Gonna run out of stash space if they keep dropping at this rate :p

    It's all luck :)

    Luck is obviously still a factor, but high runes have a much higher chance to drop. I've found Cham and Zod this season already.

    Really the removal of IM is what makes it feel nerfed - it changes the dynamic a ton.

    The rune drop rate isn't crazy, its just reasonable now. Pre 1.13 I found one vex myself in all my time playing, yet had runewords and hrs galore. Now it's actually possible to find the hrs you want in a "reasonable" amount of time.

    Good for you OP, I've only found one ber & ist, and I've been running high places like crazy for the past 4-5 months.

    Re: runes drop like crazy in 1.13?

    Rune drops were adjusted so HRs are much more common. A bit of increase for El-Ist, and HRs are 1.5-4 times for common now. Not quite a big difference on paper, but at least market is fulfilled with botted HRs, not duped ones.

    Re: runes drop like crazy in 1.13?

    even though i found more hrs then last ladder (last ladder count: 2:)), i'd still say, it is about pure luck.

    it is not dropping like "crazy". its your luck which gone up a bit "crazy":)

    Re: runes drop like crazy in 1.13?

    The rune drops in 1.13c are crazy. A Ber in 1.13c is almost exactly as rare as an Um in 1.12a (ignoring hell forges). Um runes didn't drop all of the time in 1.12a but they certainly weren't impossibly rare. I found 15 or 16 high runes with the current drop rates in just over a month before I got bored of the ridiculousness. As luck would have it my 15 or 16 high runes included 3 Jahs and 5 Bers.

    Re: runes drop like crazy in 1.13?

    I don't think it was so much getting bored of the ridiculousness, it was the amount of runs you crammed into a month =P

    I'm pretty burned out and bored with the game myself, but really, how many times can you kill the same monsters over and over without it not getting monotonous.

    Re: runes drop like crazy in 1.13?

    It really sounds like this is for the best though - it gives players the chance to finally (legitimately) make some of the runewords they always wanted to, before D3 comes out.

    Though I was pretty impressed with the rate of rune drops when I played for a bit after the most recent ladder reset. Some of the low ones were definitely pretty spammy.

    Re: runes drop like crazy in 1.13?

    There are two reasons for all the reports.

    1. Higher drop chances.
    2. More botting.

    I'm getting wary when people tell that they found 3 HRs in one day or so. I know for sure that a lot of people here share my suspicions about botters, but I usually cannot prove a thing (so I won't mention names or tell what else adds to my suspicions). That's me as a trading mod, but as a trader, I'm free to act on impressions, so I avoid to deal with these people.

    Re: runes drop like crazy in 1.13?

    I found 4 hrs this ladder, 3 of them the same week (lo, ber, lo), and 2 of them the same day within 2 hours and an Ohm a week later. You can't just draw conclusions like this... it's a matter of luck. I didn't find anymore since them and it's been over two weeks ago now :) legit grief, eth forty sacred, coh and cta :) all being used by my chars now but for the grief that was too low :(.

    Re: runes drop like crazy in 1.13?

    A lot of things are decided because of impressions, including a few of the most important decisions in your life, e.g. whom you are going to marry. I'm probably wrong with a couple of my impressions, but everybody has to make decisions on issues which we might not have enough information about. Impressions are important, but as said, I'm not acting on them if I don't have to or if would be inappropriate.

    With other words, if something unlikely happens to you which might be explained with cheating, it might be better not to mention it. Otherwise people might ask questions or you lose a bit of the trust which they put into you.
