    and it dropped an UM rune. I don't know too much about runevalues (aside from the obvious) but this is a good thing, ya? o_O

    yes, that's a nice rune to drop from hellforge. not sure what the highest actually is on nightmare difficulty. it may in fact be um.

    The highest it can drop is an UM...and the average chance of getting a rune is about equal. (but since very few run it in large quantities, it will often seem like some runes are popping up more than others)

    I suppose it depends on your lvl too?

    Personally, I do both nm and hell hellforges at around lvl 80 to have a better chance of a decent high rune.

    I've had 2 ist, 1 gul, 2 um and 1 fal from 3 characters. Yeah, I was lucky on the ists - but it's worth waiting for I reckon.

    Clvl has nothing to do with Forge drops.
    I've had many chars. under lvl5 drop Ist~Gul.

    Forge Rushing would be obsolete if a low level character couldn't get those leet rune.

    Really? Good on ya :)

    Makes a mockery of items only allowed to drop max 6 chars above your own, doesn't it !!

    I'll review my strategy on hellforge. Thx.

    So its a good thing these things aren't character level dependant.

    Personally, I think it's a good thing. I have two copies of classic, and I might get my hands on another LoD so I can hellforge rush myself - I think I could do it fairly quickly.

    It takes quite a while to do...especially with only 2 copies...it will at the very least take many many hours, even with a teleporting sorc...and you might end up with a SOL and a HEL rune for your troubles.

    Yeah, believe me, i get excited when i put that blue stone on the hell forge... and nothing's better than putting a frown on my face when i see a hell forge drop a "hel" rune... and i thought it couldn't get worse when i tried it and got a lowly "lum"... le sigh... i'll get that gul someday

    Don't worry, we have enough copies to make it worthwhile.

    Takes me 2-3 hours, is that considered "many many"?
    I usually break that up over a few sessions also.
    Norm 20 mins, Nm 20-30 mins, Hell around 60 mins.
    I like to take my time and mf some in Hell.

    The most time consuming part is getting past Baal but
    I don't mind running him a few times with boatloads of mf
    till someone that needs the quest joins. Even in Norm he can
    drop some decent items.

    Even if I get the worst possible Forge drops I'll still get Sol,Hel,
    2socket quests and whatever runes\uniques\charms that drop along the way.

    D2 time well spent IMO.

    Last night I did 2 self Fordge rushes (2 computers) results from first rush was UM in NM and HEL in Hell. Second Rush was HEL in NM and UM in Hell I found it rather funny and pissy at the same time.

    I've always waited till I'm ready to move onto hell mode before attempt NM hellforge, around lvl70+. This way I can do it with ease in a full game. I don't know if the amount of people in the game effects the rune drop, how every; you do seem to get more gems.
