    Ran Deeps 3 times w/ a full grp on normal and hard and no one got the rune arm.

    Through the whole group everyone's insisting that the drop rates are no different on normal, hard or elite, while I continually told them that elite has a much better drop rate and I highly doubt Turbine would be letting people get the rune arms after a dinky normal run.

    It doesnt take much experience for even a lvl 7 character to solo Deeps on normal, I'm not sure why they would get the rune arm which has superior Potency III and is ML 7 while doing that.

    I then soloed it on elite and got the rune arm on the first try.

    I'm collecting them ahead of time for when I'm *hopefully* able to unlock artificier in U12. This is my experience so far:

    WW 1st elite run : runearm check!
    STK 2nd elite run : runearm check!
    Catacombs 2nd elite run : runearm check!
    Tangleroot 2 elite runs skunk, 1 normal : runearm check!


    On a side note, DDO wiki needs updated with any new named runearms, I hear there are two more in Gianthold Tor named (i think) Chill of Winter and Arching Sky in the other two dragon chests that are not listed on wiki.

    Wiki doesn't list one for Sharn Syndicate or 3BC... does anyone know if there actually is one for those packs?

    You are able to obtain a rune arm in the Subterrane in Garamol's chest.

    I ran em all twice just to try for an arm-w/o success. Drop rate appears bugged. Some of my friends are getting them every time while others are never getting them.

    Ran STK elite and WW elite today (on a higher level character that will be TRd to Arti when its available via favour like its supposed to be), STK didn't drop it, WW did, first time.

    Its not a guaranteed drop, but I'd say that was a reasonable rate, and I can't believe I was really that lucky. Guildies have reported them dropping too, whether they are on artificers or not.

    Well.... I don't have alot of high level alts, also all the ones I have are first lifers without raid gear (raiding isn't my thing). I understand that in MMO's they have to keep you grinding for gear to keep you playing... at least that's the way it mostly works... I just can't stand that... don't have the patience to do a quest/series of quests 20+ times with nothing to show for it. At least Shroud you are gaining ingredients thus making progress.

    So...

    You have far more patience than I. On a happier note I'm an altaholic so even tho I don't grind for gear I guess you could say I grind for alt progress and improvement. The TR process seems to have been designed with me in mind.

    Default I think there is a problem with Rune Arm drops

    Well, I just finished tangleroot for the 3rd time and no rune arm. All attempts have been on my drow artificer. I have seen just about everyone who when with me get one and none of them artificers. I just cannot believe i could be that unlucky.

    Now that I think about it all of the rune arms I got on Lamania were with non artificer classes. I farmed them before they released the class with a copied alt.

    I am going to run these again on another class and see what happens. I am wondering of those who posted, how many of you who have arms are artificers? Some of you are not who have gotten arms and all who have posted no luck are artificers.

    So question, How many of you are getting rune arms with your artificers vs. non artificer classes. I will post my results

    ww x2 - no rune arm
    stk x2 - no rune arm
    tr x3 - no rune arm

    Now I will run them on my monk.

    The garamol one seemed to drop quite consistently, also seen it several times in the end-reward list of the carnival chain after numerous times completing.

    That's why I farmed the garamol-yielded Tira's Splendor and Reign of Madness' Glorious Obscenity Rune Arms before I TR'ed into an artificer (yes, I finally got around to TR'ing, and so far, it's pretty good. Little repetitive, but at least the robot dog and machine guns make it worth the while).

    I finally got another rune arm. I just could not bear passing up the exp. On my artificer so I decided to run shantokor again. Ran on normal for the bonus(hard and elite already complete). Flicker was in the end reward list. This was my 3rd completion of STK.

    The good news, I was able to get a rune arm. The bad, rune arms don't always drop. A guildy told me they had to run STK 5 times before getting flicker on their artificer. Maybe we both had a string of bad luck. At least we got one. So, hang in there if you fall into the unlucky side of life.

    I think I will move on to Deleras and sorrow dusk. I am happy I got my flicker, the best low level arm in my opinion.

    My luck:

    redemption: 1st try (quest reward)
    water works: 0 for 1
    stk: 0 for 1
    tangleroot: 1st try (quest chain reward), it showed up but I was running to get my visor, and I took the visor, maybe I'll do it again for the arm
    delera: 1st try (quest reward), but I was doing it for the Voice, and I took the Voice, did the chain again and got it again (and took it)

    If you run The Tide Turns, you'll definitely get that RuneArm by the 3rd run (may get it on earlier runs). Plus it's the lowest level RA with an level 2 Imbue!

    I did get the WW one (first run). TR gave me no love (one run).

    Soloed Deeps on normal one time, got the Pea-shooter. History: Ran WW 4 times to get Flamewarden, Tangleroot 3 times. Deleras, 1st try. That's it for me.... so far. (I thought I would never get that 1st one from WW)
