    Find Item Skill question

    Does mf count towards wat items you find with find item?
    And wat are the chances of you actually finding a unique compared to killing?
    Would you guys recommend it for mfing?

    MF works with it
    I believe it is 1/2-1/4 or so as far as uniques and such go
    I use it on my mfer however I keep 2 heart carvers on me which give +8 to find item which saves a few skill points that you could use to bring up resist dam or def

    But, how many points you guys suggest to put in Find items? I try to use Ali Baba + Gull dagger with 1 pts in FI. After BO and +skill in other gears, I got like lvl 4 or 5 FI. But, I found that many times, I can't even find a thing by horking 10+ corpses. Indeed, I have several heart C. dagger around. I could use 1 heart C. dagger+ ali baba or gull or dual heart C. daggers, but that will significantly reduce my MF (lvl 73 now, so, MF = 146 with dual ali baba or 174 with ali baba+gull). So, is pumping FI worth it? Say, make the find % around 40-45% after BO and +skill gears without using heart C. dagger.

    PS: basically, the choice between : higher MF but lower % to find or lower MF but higher % to find. which one would be better? certainly, high MF+high FI would be best.

    Thanks!

    40-50% is my goal when I use it

    MF is all about repitition

    so more chances lower mf> few chances higher mf

    So, you suggest put only 1 pt in FI (or even 0 pt) and use dual heart C. daggers or 1 heart c. dagger + ali baba/gull ? Or it is really not good to put, say 3-5 real pt. in FI ?

    Hi, DhR_PVP:

    Thanks for your suggestion. But, the problem is if I am using combat gears (like IK set or other good gears but without too much MF), then, when you switch to dual heart carver, you have very small to zero MF actually. Or you have any good suggestion for MF/Battle gears at the same time, then I can comfortablely use 2 heart carver just for horking the corpses.

    My gear now (lvl 73)
    Windhammer (will chage to IK maul after lvl 76)
    IK belt, glove, helm (with 2 PT), boot
    Ring: Angellic ring and RevanFrost
    Ammy: Angelic Ammy
    Armor: Angelic armor (oh, well, if I can find IK armor, I'll replace it :rant: )
    So, I have +50 MF from 3 pieces of angelic set and +86 (+38 from helm and +48 from 2 PT) from IK helm and +25 from the IK boot = 161 MF only. Now, I switch to ali baba+gull, I get 136+73+100 = 334 MF.

    Suggestion, please.

    BTW, I am using conc. as main attack, I have 1 pt in berserk and WW.

    Thanks!

    IK helm
    Tal Belt
    Chance Gaurds
    War Tavs
    Bk ring
    Madnal Ring
    MF ammy (magical with barb skills)
    Skulders would be ideal for armor but a 3pt Black hades would get the job done

    This set up wont be idea for anything other than bosses like meph and pindle but it will stand up to them untill you can have a better set up

    Just do Gull and Heart Carver. Don't bother horking normal monsters, only champs and uniques. Especially in 1-player games; even if you don't get the game to give you another drop, the chances are extremely high that the drop turns out to be "nodrop", meaning you don't get anything anyway :p
