    I second that, I'm not really looking for magic/rare/unique/set right now .. but more the high quality 'white' items, so basically I took off nearly all my MF gear, to run the pits. Its great! I find lots of high quality 'whites' and the runs are SUPER fast, because I'm wearing all of my 'Power Gear' I've done it for like the last 2 weeks off and on, and I've already filled 1 full account (8 characters) will kick a** white stuff.. :)

    Statistically, the best place to find high lvl runes #26-#33 is the council thru the travincial WP act 3.

    As for items...the Pits.

    I hate to disagree but I personally have NEVER gotten anything worth a lick from the pit. It's the pits as far as I'm concerned. I have an ** Sorcess with 435% mf. I'll run crypt, mausoleum, tristram, pit and andy ... then I'll run over to act II lost city. The pitt has been by far the greatest disappointment.

    I have done a few pit runs with my friend and we haven't found anything. However, I haven't done nearly as many runs as he has so I don't really know what he has found.

    Luck also plays a part in it. I just started running the pits last week and so far have found. Dark Adherent, Trang Oul's Scales, a small 100 poision damage charm, Blood Raven's Charge, and some other lesser uniques. All with less than 200% MF.

    On the other hand, A friend of mine from these forums has found a Zod rune.

    The best place to pick up highlevel runes (up to UM and up to GUL) is the Hellforge quest, has a 100% drop chance and the chance of the runes are equal.

    Hehehehehe

    shako, 2 silks and steel rends all came within a half hour of each other, the tals armor dropped the same day. the tals armor dropped with me killing the monster with about 200 mf.
    with my merc i have a lil over 500 and i let him kill all the special monsters that spawn.

    are you realy serious? before i hit ladder i used my 99 barb and must have made COUNTLESS council runs and never had one run worth mentioning but maybe like a ko at best.

    if that's true that's kinda odd lol.

    Actually, I ran the pit for a while with 401%mf, (about 2 or 3 weeks) then I said to hell with the MF, and put on my best gear and ran it like 10 times faster, and I actually tend to find more stuff with the lower MF, + I find a lot of useful normal/socketed stuff as well.
