    Default Wild speculation on existence of Necropolis Rune Arm

    I'm satisfied Sharn Syndicate doesn't have one, since approximately 8 billion Artificers have run through that series with no reports.

    I doubt 3BC has one since there's nothing else named there, and I suspect a lot of 'everything once on elite' toons have run through there recently with no reports.

    Surely though, Necropolis has one. I'm happy to rule out Bloody Crypt and Shadow Crypt - since despite being likely locations, those end chests have probably been ransacked by many toons in the name of XP farming since U11 came out.

    So, I'm thinking Cursed Crypt maybe? Given the insanely low drop-rates of other named gear in there, it's possible that not enough traffic has passed through that chest since U11 to see a single drop.

    The two other alternatives as I see it are as a rare explorer drop - which is slightly more plausible given the existence of Vulsejhthgnasdfx's Gem and tapestry shreds, but rather unlikely. The final chance is Abbott, but given a lack of reports of a find, I'd rule it out.

    So - the thrilling conclusion of this post is that I reckon there's a chance there's a rune arm in the Cursed Crypt chest.

    Also: Amrath. Rare in explorer area drop? Else would probably get noses out of join in messing up belt/ring drops in qs/raid. Would love it to drop only in end chests of Elite A New Invasion. That would be spectacularly evil.

    No rune arm on a guildie's 20th Abbot, although that does not rule out other possible spots.

    Thanks Sirgog; yeah I'd be very surprised if an Abbot runearm turned up now.

    My last thought on this is potentially a Litany of the Dead mini-boss chest: Mentau would make a ton of sense to me.

    There could be one on the Tome page quest list. Anyone turned in for a Skiver and saw a bonus?

    who knows, it might even be in the shield quest instead, since it isn't technically a weapon

    I saw a bound rune arm on an end reward list for shadow crypt. I have seen rune arms on many end reward lists that all are bound.

    I didn't take them since I don't plan on rolling an arti....but since I have only seen them on end reward lists and it seems variable (they don't always show up) it might take running many quests to get the rune arm to show up.

    Most of the ones that I am aware of are quest chain rewards, from chains that have other named items on their list.

    or Redemtion in Korthos. (and all Korthos quests have named items as end rewards)

    But I did pull a named one from Gargamels(sp) chest in the sub-t.

    um.. i think you're thinking of Garamol.. Gargamel was the guy who was the evil wizard from the smurfs - but yeah, i tend to refer to him as Gargamel too, i'm easily amused sometimes

    that would be a great one though, would have to be blue.

    I just hope someone discovers a tier 4 one that isn't Gianthold Tor or the Titan raid. :P I Know people can solo tor, but i haven't tried it yet, and don't really look forward to trying it at level, with that hireling summon trick for the levers, knowing my luck with lag. :P

    Hopefully next update will add more, and since every other item has random drops, it would be kind of neat to have random rune arms, although unlikely.

    Did shield turn in.

    Nothing but shields and a Legendary Victory. Calling off the hunt. If it's not a Tome (checked by guildie) or Shield (checked personally) hand-in, or in Mentau's Lab (to ransack twice) or wing of Litany (to ransack once), or been sighted in Abbott, I'm willing to say it doesn't exist.





    No more bumps from me.

    PS. Will be amusingly livid if they add a rune-arm as a shield turn-in in U12
