Darn Act IV Plans

Hardcore
I am going on about 30 runs now, no plans. And every time I do the runs in MP3 or MP4, it feels like I am just one debuff away from dying. The key warden seems to have at least 1 pack with it, sometimes 2, and it feels like the old days of porting in, taking out 1 elite, porting out, repeat since I am always kiting to the entrance.

Even worse, I have only gotten a key drop once of that sucker.
I got lucky with my plans in SC and HC, two runs each on MP2.
I haven't even tried for them yet- I'm just not sure how much an HFR is worth to me at the moment LOL
first time my son fought him on mp 0 it dropped for him...I got it the second time I did him on mp 0 or 1 (can't remember) as did my friend...luck can be on your side at times...
No worries zork it will come. I have been runnning my CM wiz with a buddy to try and get theirs and we many times have a spot open. Next time you can come with us we usually run on mp4-6.

Cool, should take me an hour or so per white mob...
If you live that long.

Ill raise my drink in your honor ;)
That is a long string of bad luck on finding that Infernal Machine plan, and I hope it drops for you soon. Personally, I'd suggest reducing the Monster Power to improve your chances of surviving if you're going to keep doing it solo, but I tend to play it overly safe in hardcore.

make a new character and level it up, the plan drops on the first kill as you play through the quests once.

there is no such mechanic. plans are randomly dropped. 5% at mp0 with 5 stacks to 100% at mp10 with 5 stacks.
i've only found one key ever on any difficulty on any act, so I feel ya.
i had a hard time hunting for the plan too, i was keeping track of the likelihood of my unluckiness, i got down to below 1% before it finally dropped for me.
Damn, that sucks. I got mine on my 4th or 5th sc mp0 run through without even trying to farm it, so I was lucky I guess. Never seen a single key off any of the wardens yet, though...
30 runs in MP3-4 sounds a little excessive, are you sure you had 5NV each time?
Anyway, it took me some time to get the plans and the keys, then took me more time to find a normal team that would do the uber fights with me in high enough MP (was MP8) so the demon parts will have a high chance to drop.
Managed to get all the demon parts.
With shaking hands I went and made the ring.
RNG kicked in and it was so bad I brimstoned it right away.
