    eth cb

    is it possible to shop for a plain eth cb, one that i could use a socket quest on, and turn into a botd. if so, where is the best place for this?

    No, you cannot shop for ethereal items.

    And you certainly can't shop for non-magical exceptional and elite items.

    Run the Pit (or other level 85 area) with very little MF on, you'll get one eventually.

    What kind of range would you call very little?

    Does Etherealness require any MF? If not, then wouldn't it be better to run the Pit with no MF on?

    Yea I understand that little mf is good, but what I'm asking is whether or not NO mf would be better than little mf in finding an eth cb.

    yea man no mf would be better bcuz if you have mf you have more chances to fing magical items and you want a normal colossus blade not a magical colossus blade

    so all in all WEAR no magic find ablsolutely none if you want to increase ur chances of finding eth cb

    MF *should* not affect the chances of an item being ethereal but the quality of the item. I believe a roll is done after determining the quality of the item to see if it will be ethereal or not and this is independent of MF. In 1.09, it was a 1:20 chance of an item being eth. ... not sure what it is in 1.10

    Hence, 0% MF means you will find more plain items ... them being ethereal comes after the fact.
