    Runes are random, The best place is countess but that doesn't mean you are going to get any good ones. High runes are so rare you shouldn't ever plan on finding one.

    Re: Runes

    i belive people run LK super chests to get those higher runes because they are bugged and drop higher runes alot more frequently, still you'll need to do about 10k runs before you find a certain rune, any hr? i think it was 3.7k runs or so, GL

    countess can drop um and pul (about 770 and 513 runs), she can drop up to an ist(1344 runs) with her special rune drops, she can drop Gul Vex Ohm and Lo but it'll take well over 100k runs for these to drop

    You don't need to rune hunt, just magic find and trade items.

    Re: Runes

    yea and hel too. haha.

    Its a tedious process but if u think about it, grushing ur charcs to hell and do forge. the time taken is much more than mfing countess but there is a very very much higher possiblity of getting those runes mentioned den from countess.

    Thats is if you are juz rune huunting.

    Hell Cows if you can run it in 8 person games also gives good results purely on the basis of the amount of drops, but comes with it's own set of issues as well.

    Re: Runes

    I find the fastest way to puls and ums and on is key hunting.

    One keyset = pul and transmute up.

    I haven't been doing this very long or much but I have a few ists, mals, lots of ums.

    Re: Runes

    if you have no problems trading for HRs, just run Nihlithak for Dkeys. on West SCL, going rate is 12D = HR, i think?

    Re: Runes

    2 dkey = pul
    4pul = 1 HR

    so 8 dkeys = 1hr

    Re: Runes

    True, trading is definitely the quickest and easiest way, I just don't like the high probability of a duped rune.

    Couple of questions, considering most traded runes are duped:
    1. Do duped runes still poof? If not, I may consider going back to trading rather than forge running.

    2. If you cube up the duped runes, are the resulting runes safe, or can they poof also?

    3. Do runewords made with duped runes disappear when warden or ruststorm (whatever it's called) is run?


    Regarding countess, I don't even bother anymore (except for keys when needed). After hundreds of countess runs, I got SOOO many els, elds and tirs and nothing higher than a dol. I'd rather get forge minimum of SOL (NM) and HEL (HELL) each run. Doing 3-6 runs a night can get me some hr's pretty quickly, if I get a few UMs or GULs from time to time.
