    That completely depends on where you will be MFing. Give us a few areas you'll concentrate on and we can give some suggestions.

    overall best, i would go with sorc or necromancer.

    necromancer- go with fishymancer

    sorc- again, depends on what areas you wanna MF. either meteorb or a blizzsorc

    I love my Meteorb. She can handle almost every Mf area. Pretty cheap overall build too.

    My lightning Sorceresses can take on pretty much any area in the game without any real problems.

    if you want to MF areas then a fishymancer would be a good option

    Hammerdin is good, but the gear is expenive.

    Blizz sorc is an excellent boss runner and the gear is pretty cheap.

    The number one most important thing is to play something you have fun playing. You be spending a lot of time with your magic find character. Next is versatility unless you just want to run one place over and over.

    Either of those is good. Hammerdins are uberly powerful. Here ae a couple of other suggestions.

    Trapper with lightning sentry-death dentry-fireblast + 1 point shadow master.
    Great crowd control with mind blast/cloak of shadows. Can shop for trap cladows and shadow helm/claws. Easy to get going with no equipment at all and can do any runs.

    Blizzard-Glacial Spike-Firewall sorceress.
    Great crowd control with glacial spike. This helps your merc and you survive. Blizzard will be able to take down meph/baal fairly quickly. Run anywheres in the game.

    Hydra-Orb sorceress.
    Safe build and good for parties and hardcore.

    Summoner necromancers are very equipment independant and can run anywheres.

    I have a meteorb atm, she can handle mephisto, andy, pindle with much ease. She can do baal too with not many troubles. Baal minions just take a while longer then i feel they should, but thats probably because i have no skill modifying charms, and im only level 83ish. Only troubles I have is when theres a TON of burning souls in the minion room. I can handle diablo too, except sometimes iron maiden ****s up my merc, and I can get overwhelmed by the mobs pretty quickly. It takes extra work sometimes, depending on what combination/amount of mobs you get at a seal, but doable.

    Im thinking of making an MF Hammerdin when i finish up my uber trist kicksin. MF Hammerdims seem to be able to dominate anything they want to mf... andy/meph/diablo/baal etc.

    Re: Best mf character ?

    And though I have never played the character and it may have been nerfed somewhat there were a lot of guides once upon a time talking about using a ww/zerker barb in particular because of the ability to dual wield ali babas for the final killing hit, as well as the item find skill for double drops. If you like mele characters it could be a possibility.

    i use a frenzy barb for mf. his only sources of mf are gheeds, a ptopazed skullders, some mf on his ammy and double ali baba on switch (which adds up to 380 mf). the rest of his gear is standard pvm. a good mid-price weapon choice would be oath and crescent moon, which can even kill normal physical immune monsters without switching weapons and works well against bosses.

    the final blow with ali babas can take a while in late hell.

    I even here some hardcore barb mfers get dual 6ist phase blades for last hit, grand total of 360 mf on those two blades alone, thats pretty sick.
