I recently built a FO/CL sorc for running the countess and I've done as well as I could have rushing a sorc to hell forge in much less time. I probably haven't done 50 countess runs so far and I've grabbed a mal, hel, shael and many amns. Better than I had expected.
My barb with Enigma just teles through the tower and clear her out pretty fast. Have done it a few hundred times, but sadly only found a Um, 2 Puls and a couple of lower runes. I still think she's pretty good for runes, because you can keep like Rals and trade 40 of them for currency or whatever. It's for crafting caster ammies or something like that.
