    How many beetles full of wood (around 2k a trip with wood on me as well) does it usually take to get a runic? Burned like 6k wood for naught so far. Commonly take that much?

    The drop rate has been very poor and streaky for me. Sometimes after going through around 50k wood, I'll get two saws in a row. So a rough estimate is about 25k wood per saw.

    Your personal luck decides. It can be very random. I was down there today to try my luck and I got 4 runic saws (2 oak, 1 ash and 1 yew) out of 3 charges wood (1600 on packy and 200 on me per charge).
