I believe countess and hephasto (the hellforge smith guy) have good odds at dropping runes. A lot of the mid-rare ones can drop from everybody and the rarest drop from the higher level folk: Pit, Worldstone, Baal, Pindle
The best to run travincal hell is a hammedin, imho , with white dwarf & max fire resist(basically immunse to fire), hide behind those walls & BH them to death .. very fast runs. My group of friends keep doing trav runs... very worth to find alot of items (eg.. vipermagi, tal ammy, mara's, alma negra gheeds, & lots more .....)
