Worst Forge Drops

I had to share this... I think my sorc got the worst 3 forge drops possible...

Normal: Tir, P Skull
Nightmare: Sol, P Emerald
Hell: Hel, P Skull

I couldn't believe all the crap I got from 3 forge runs... I did better in three countess runs... I got a pul :)

Feel free to add your bad forges :)

That is about 1 in every 1331. but still it is higher than the chance to get pul from Countess.

What's the purpose of this thread? Each forge has exactly 11 runes it can drop, with each rune having the same probability, 1:11.

Therefore, your chance to get the lowest rune in both normal, nightmare and hell is (1/11)*(1/11)*(1/11)=1/1331.

Which, incidentally, is the same chance as
- getting the best rune from all three forges
- getting any rune of your choosing from each of the forges
- getting 3x IST in 3 consecutive hellforge runs
- getting 3xHEL from hell-hellforge in 3 consecutive hellforge runs
- getting any set of 3 runes of your choosing from hell-hellforge in 3 consecutive hellforge runs
- ...

EDIT: people often don't understand that they get the same chance for IST or GUL as they have for HEL from hell-hellforge, simply because everyone is happy if IST drops, and everyone is pissed if HEL drops --- you get the same number of ISTs and HELs over time, but it feels like you are getting a lot less ISTs...

Hmm... Maybe I'm just lucky. I've gotten like 3 io's and some mal's, even a hel from hell forge.

Then again I also got 2 gul's, morphed a vex, and made a perfect hoto...

but that's besides the point ;)

And, for the post above... each rune has 1:11 chance, but some people really get bad luck...

For example, me and a friend do forge runs all the time. I've gotten many ists, more guls, and very few below that.

He never even saw an ist until I showed him the one I morphed last night... I couldn't believe it. But he's only had a gul drop, one mal, and the rest lower. He's done almost as many forges as I have, and he's done *very* bad. Just bad luck...

Not the 3 worst since you got a tir in normal. One of my last chars was the winner of worst forges ever with el, sol and hel :thumbsup: :lol:

My worst hell forge drop was a hel rune. I usually am very lucky and only get good runes. It probably drops a bad rune 1 every 5 hell forges.

Random chances are bullwhaever...

In my whole D2 history of Hell forges (which is around 40), I got 3 ists, 2 Guls, 1 Mal, 2 Um and a Pul. Rest lower. It's pathetic.

Statistically, it should average out, but any sort of drops in D2 has a very wide standard deviation. Which means, luck plays A LOT in this game.

Just think. Two people who've never met each other / know nothing about each other...

One gets nothing but the best runes from Hell Forge...

And I get nothing but the worst runes from Hell Forge...

I was £$"*%^d when my HC barb got a Hel rune from both NM and Hell Hellforges.

Well, I sure feel lucky. The only 2 times I did the NM hellforge(I don't have that many people in nm yet lol) I got Um runes. With them being the highest, I feel happy, but I need to get a good enough person to rush in hell for the forges there. I would get a ton of runes. :D

I had a streak of Hell hellforges, maybe 18-20 or so of just Lum, Io, Hel, Fals. 1 Ko mixed in there, but none higher.

Always seems to get good runes when I'm paying friends the forge though.
