How many tries did it take to get waterworks gear?

I have been browsing the forums and seen many questions on WW gear, but no one seems to say how long it took them to get their gear. I have seen a lot of people with the gear and was wondering how many tries it took you to get it? I just tried WW and it took me a really long time.....can't imagine going through it to farm.
Thanks!

back when waterworks was first released, my balance and death wizards both got their full sets in about 6 runs~ hat and robe on the first one, and a few extra for the boots.

after ki added mastery amulets to the mix, people overfarmed for them and drops were drastically reduced, meaning that it took me forever. storm and life both started the instance at level 60, and were level 75 and 78 (respectively) by the time they got their full sets (though life did score a storm mastery amulet from luska). fortunately for me, i had crafted the level 56 wintertusk gear for both of them, so that they wouldn't be at a disadvantage if they didn't have it.

i have 2 wizards there now, and have done 2 runs with them~ myth got his robe on the first trip through, and ice got hers on the second; still missing hat and boots for both, but my myth has his wt crafted stuff and ice is currently working on the cl crafting quest in order to craft hers (since she is my highest-level wiz on my second account), so i'm not worried about either of them going without.

if you haven't done so already, frostflake, craft the wt gear for your wizard. it's pretty much on par with waterworks, so you won't be at a disadvantage if you don't feel up to farming for years.

my "weekend" is monday/tuesday this week~ if anyone wants to join me for a run, my wizards will be around between 2-7am atlantic time (12-5am central, 10pm-3am pacific), probably in one of the less-crowded realms.

Got the robe on the 9th run, the hat on the 11th run, and the boots on the 18th run.

Yep I have bad luck

My storm has her full set after about eight runs, as of just now. In those runs she got four hats, one pair of boots, one robe.

I got full Waterworks gear on my storm in 5 runs. It can vary, but I would say the chances of getting Waterworks gear is more common than Zeus gear.
