Unbelievable Countess Run

I tried to run countess in normal in order to make a malice Ith El Eth. After ten trial, some part is still missing, and it frustrating. Cos what? I need that El badly! :confused:

In this 10 runs I got : 2 Eld, 2Tir, 3Nef, 4Eth, 4Ith, 4Tal, 3Ral :lol: WTH! :mad:

There is about a 1/340 chance of no Els at all in 10 solo normal Countess runs. Uncommon but bound to happen to someone. Good Work :)

Don't worry. Try to get e.g. the Spirit or Oath runes from hell Countess and the Els will be back :lol:

I'll keep my eyes peeles for you Kris, I seem to happen by them a lot lately (of course, watch me never find one ever again now that I've said that) :rolleyes:

I had the most insane countess run last week. I ran her for about half an hour, and found 2 mals and 2 ums...incredible. Since then, I haven't found higher than io. Although I'm sure this is not the case, it makes me wonder whether a log is kept...

just for the double edge name ?
Yes. I somehow think it's stylish and it doesn't matter where to put it in because the runes are so cheap. The character who will get it happens to be a bowazon (my only character with no secondary weapon) and she can wield any bow in the game anyway IIRC.

Tarzanell, thanks for that ;)

Find a white and socket with cube... I think they can get only 3 sockets, so there's a 2/3 chanse of getting one.

Yeah its a 2/3rd chance (well better stated 4/6th) to get the 3 socketed edge bow from a white one with a 3 socket maximum, if you're looking for 3 sockets its best to run in normal if the item can drop.

I admit I haven't searched that hard so far :) The next set of runes for the socketing recipe will be used on the next edge bow I will find.

If three sockets is the max, why use the cube? Larzuk WILL give you the max...
Use the quest to socket rares and uniques, much more effective use I say.

For white items the cube recipe is dirt cheap, in fact it's a good way to build up worth for trading. You can run normal countess for chippies and the needed runes and then run act 1 hell or late nightmare for white items, socket them and see what you can get, Some people will offer alot for the perfect item type with the correct sockets for runewords.

As an added bonus white items are everywhere, no need to run the same boss over and over hopeing for 1 item that isn't common.

edge is good, i have an egde egde bow :p on my goldfind/mf barb

and on countess last night in about 3 or 4 runs i found 2 lem runes off her, so she will have her random luck rune where you get good rune then few runs get one more. i run countress because i like to craft, count drops good runes like ral, amn, ect. use for most used cube crafts.

You can just go shopping and buy one from normal difficulty's Gheed or Charsi. ( Since I only use that bow for the price deduction, and not for merc or any fighting purpose. )

Sure, I can buy or pick up the first bow with three sockets, but I wanted an edge bow and thanks to Myrakh-2 I have one now. However, I'm quite sure you cannot buy nomagical edge bows in a shop because it's an exceptional bow. At the level they become available for shopping, only magical items will appear in the inventory, I guess.

Act I merchants don't sell anything but normal items anyway due to a bug. (That's Charsi for sure, and I think Gheed too, not entirely certain with akara, never shopped her, but who wants exep or leet wands/staffs anyway?)

Larzuk doesn't always give maximum sockets. I had a nice wand with +3 Poison Nova and took it to Larzuk. It came out 1 socket and I was so____(fill in the blank).

Some wands only get 1 socket. Depends on the type.
