    superchests

    can somebody please explain to me what a super chest is, like..what it looks like, and what makes it special? I hear everybody talking about MFing in Lower Kurast, so I went there, opened a ton of regular chests, turned over logs, bodies, etc..nothing special, so I'm real curious?

    Find the campfires in LK. They'll be one or two campfires. The two huts nearest the campfires (one to the NE and one to the W) contain superchests. (One in the one to the NE and two to the W.)

    There's a whole thread on LK running in the SPF. :smiley:

    They have the best chance of dropping HRs, though its still very small of a chance.

    you can tell they are superchests when instead of one or two items they explode all over the place

    Re: superchests

    I actually ran them around 100 times and nothing of interest dropped. I always blamed it was a SP thingy, since there's is where the results came from. But then again, 100 times is very little to statistically prove something.

    Still SP, Thy. It might nog say anything about Bnet.

    edit: that guy is insane though. I've never heard a real project about it on Bnet.

    Re: superchests

    Do it have to be a full game to give decent drops, or can i do LK alone in a private game?

    Private games should drop the same amount. I don't think the no-drop rule applies to chests at all.

    Re: superchests

    Personally I don't just hit the chests. I'll whack monsters and any other poppables on the way to the chests. It's worth it. A friend of mine got a Cham from one of those little leaper things.

    More players = more whackables. :grin:

    Re: superchests

    It's not worth it on bnet. You can't run more than 20 runs an hour, which would mean that the 17000 lk runs would take you around 850 hours.

    Even if you could make unlimited games an hour, it would still not be worth it. The guys in question went on for 170 hours of running. If you spend that amount on countess//mephie//andy//nihla you are bound to find a LOT more goodies than he did.

    (The 170h is based on his a 100 runs/h estimation)

    (You might not find the amount of runes he did, but more than enough to trade for far more runes (and better ones : who needs surs//chams etc)

    Re: superchests

    That's very much false. There is a reason why LK is run at p7/8 in SP, as that is the only known time the chests may drop Bers.

    Thanks, Gorny. I got a PM from him this morning that, while not offensive, was just irritating spam.
