just use a mf shield on weapon switch like a 4ist shield milbegas rhyme etcShanksie1337 said:is IST'ing a HoZ the best way to go?
( i have the ist and the HoZ, i am just wondering if there is a better option before i commit).
ty in advance.
(EU L btw sc)
ok you don't make sense - i assume u missed a few "," in there so:evild2player said:just use a mf shield on weapon switch like a 4ist shield milbegas rhyme etc
as for the resists, between the HoZ (50), the Wizardspike (75) and the anni (min of 10) i shall be pretty much sorted for resists. With a Gull/ali baba on switch for extra mf for the kill i should be fine. Besides why waste an UM when a p diamond in the shield is SO much cheaper!?memememe173 said:If you can spare the resist on the shield then sure but if you could say um the shield and then put on an item somewhere else (travs instead of treahaunch ex) that would give alot more
true but if i can get to 400 mf using much fewer items - ie in my case:UselessOne said:If you already have high MF (400+), whats the point of using an Ist to just get 25-30% more MF? The extra 30% will have practically no impact on how many extra unique or set items that will drop. The more important thing is what treasure class drops from a monster and MF has no impact on that.
yea i meant for killin bosses..Shanksie1337 said:as for the resists, between the HoZ (50), the Wizardspike (75) and the anni (min of 10) i shall be pretty much sorted for resists.

As for the WT's they are included already - see above for resists - ppl worry too much about resists when mf'ing - assume your char is at a decent level - ie nice health and ideal gear - and the extra resists, (not that mine will be bad), are simply not needed.
Wouldn't Ist have to be required in Enigma for this to make any sense?UselessOne said:It just seems to me that there is a better uses for an Ist rune-one being Enigma. This would also allow you to do Meph runs with your hammerdin. Most people, if they had only one Ist rune and had the choice of socketing a shield with an Ist or making Enigma, would not hesitate to make and use Enigma even though it would have less MF than Skullders. If I had one Skullders and one Enigma, I would put Skullders on a Sorc and Enigma on a pallly to make the items as useful as possible.
Of course, all my arguments are a moot point if you already have Enigmas, Skullders and lots of Ist runes lying around.
I actually don't have an Enigma or an Ist rune for that matter. I was just assuming that Shanksie1337 was fairly well off item wise since he has an Ist, and an HoZ, which are items I would love to have.iceball_aarf said:UselessOne: even without enigma you can do Meph mf runs, and yes it takes usually 2-3minutes, it is really that easy... just remember to quaff superhealing potions everytime your life goes below 50%, with 3 rows of superpots and 1 of supermana pots a hammerdinn is more than set....
Why would you ist a baba but not a wizspike? Wizspike has much better mods and it seems like you don't mf much. Besides ist isn't worth too much nowadays anyway(at least on non ladder). There worth like 2-4 ums.Antiochous_3 said:All i know is if i only had one ist i would use it in a baba, or in a rune word that i needed and deffinatly not put it into a wiz spike. Besides, i think it is always good to think about resale value if u ever decide that u dont need an item, and a ist wiz spike is gonna be worth much less than the ist and wizzy seperatly.
