    Hell Countess Rune Drop Frequency?

    I usually do Nihlathak runs to get DKeys to build wealth, but have started running the Countess with my Tal's Meteorb to see how it compares. It takes a little longer to run the Countess, and the keys are worth less than Nihl's DKeys, but the rune drops might make it more than worth it.

    Today, doing about 25 or so runs, Countess dropped Mal, Pul, Lum and a bunch of lower runes. I'm thinking this is a rather lucky set of runs for me. What is everyone's experience with Countess and rune drops? I'm interested in seeing how frequently people have seen the Countess drop Lem-Vex runes.

    70% of the time: El,Eld,Eth,Ith
    30% of the time: Sol,Hel,Ort,Amn

    Best rune ever from countess in over 300 runs = Ko rune
    Did anyone have a table with her drop percentages?

    I got a Lum yesterday, that's about the best I ever get from her.

    I'm running her on my druid atm, and before that I used a sorc and a barb, so in allthat time I've probably done upwars of 100 runs, don't ever remember finding a HR, or even a diescent mid-rune.

    I will have to get back to you later for some exact information. I am at work and have limited access to the sites I would like to see for this.

    But I am fairly certain that her drop rate for runes is the same as they are normally. If that makes sense. Let me look and see if I can find it real quick without any blocked sites.

    Its blocked but here is a linky it might be what you are looking for.

    Re: Hell Countess Rune Drop Frequency?

    As I'm running her, I'm getting some OK non-rune drops; rare rings, a +1 Martial Arts GC and a couple set items. For whatever reason, Nihlathak has pretty much dropped junk for me over the past few months (besides keys). I'm beginning to believe that Hell Countess is MUCH more profitable than Nihlathak. Even though the Countess is a little longer per run, I think the run times even out - I have really no risk of death in a Countess run, while I do have a small risk in a Nihlathak run. I HATE losing XP, so I always gotta go get that body back . . .

    Re: Hell Countess Rune Drop Frequency?

    well up to ist countess has the highest drop rate but its still like 1:1000

    you got fairly lucky getting mal pul and lum in 35 runs but she is pretty good...why not run all 3 keys and sll them as sets(worth more that way)

    My best was Amn, or probably Sol. But at least she was also the one who dropped my new character :p

    Re: Hell Countess Rune Drop Frequency?

    i dont think its worth it runnning keys. I have played for 4 weeks on the new ladder and got around 4-5 hrs in value. And no keyrunning. wast of time imo(key value is dropping to)
