    Warning/Rant

    When I play diablo, my character should have a warning sign over his head. Because I think I must be the most unluck forge runner ever. Here is the situation. I've run hell forge probably 30 times or more. During that time i've picked up several hel runes, a few um runes (ok um runes are nice I admit it), 1 mal rune and several pul runes. That is it. Seriously. Never, not once an ist or a gul. It's gotten to the point that I was helping this one guy out one time and he got a low rune, don't remeber what but I think it was a Lem. In other words my bad luck is spreading. My last character just grabbed another hel rune. The amazing this is that I've had great luck with NM Hell forge getting its best drops often.

    So basically if you see me in a hel game stay away I might be contagious.

    um rune and a mal rune? you are lucky. of the 7 chars i was able to get to the forge, iirc 5 was hel and 2 was io. i just found an um rune in a NM baal run game, so i guess its not my bad luck with runes, its just the bad forge rune.

    Yup, a few Ums and a Mal in 30-odd runs are not that bad

    I had a long run of "bad luck" on hell forge runs but then got Ist, Gul, Pul, Gul...it goes in streaks sometimes. hope you get Cham* next run! Well Ist anyway.......



    *poster knows Gul is max drop in Hell forge.

    Wait till you get Gul twice in a row on NONLADDER, then you know your luck is misplaced.

    Considering that statistically he should have about 5 Ist/Gul runes I would call it bad luck.

    about a 1.25% chance of no Ist/Gul in 30 runs. Not good luck by any means, but nothing completely unexpected.

    It won't help, but the chance actually is (9/11)^30=0.24% :rolleyes:

    Wow, that's pretty unlucky. From my only two forges(I don't do other peoples forges) I've had an Ist and a Gul.

    Damn, another pul. Seriously this is getting ridiculous. On the bright side though I did find a mal in the bloody hills or whatever it is called.
