Its not that hard to build a MF sorc, firstly load her with mf items

3 topaz helm/ tarn helm
tancreds armor
tancreds amulet
2 rare 30+ mf rings
2 nagels
30+ mf boots
Chance guards
milabergas sheild
gull
goldwrap

then after having all that MF gear you need to choose a killing skill, the most recommended are blizzard, meteor, and hydra.

once you have chosen your killing skill max that skill and corresponding synergies. dont forget to get teleport :) also a few points in warmth would be good.

As far as the sorc being the best mf char in classic goes they have their ups and downs. they have tele and can get to bosses faster but have horrible resists and tend to die alot if not played with the up most caution. Barbs make very good MF chars as well since they can get the resists, and life while packing on the MF gear.

I recomend using a sorc to kill andy in hell. If you load up with too much MF you wont be able to do this because andy will kick ur butt. Max your resists and use frosties for more mana. Kill her with 100-200 MF and it's only a matter of time before you find SOJ.

is it possible if someone would make a mf barb build guide then?
I can give u a mini guide to mf barbs.

skills- max bo, wep mastery,shout, ww, 1 increased speed, ~5 into nat resist.
stats-no dex, no energy, all vit, nuff strngth 4 ur end game wep.

gear-
3ptopaz helm or high mf tarnhelm
sigs boots, gloves, and belt (50 mf, life steal, resists, defense)
angelic rings, ammy, and armour (100 mf, huge ar, dtm, life, high fire resist)
weapon:
for the poor a low martel, steeldriver, bonesnap. (NOT a lance unless it has 75 durability or else it will break 2 easily.) For the richer a high damage martel w/ 180 dura, w/ mana leach socket w/ pskull.

Of course any high damage 2 handed weapon w/ nice durability is fine

This is a basic, cheap setup, although there are certainly better out there using all rares, but they would cost a few sojs to make 1

I actually had a point into find item on my barb, and yes, 2 gulls. I found that i never really used them tho. I have 200 mf using my weapon (256 anc axe w/ 150 dura, pink, pskd ;D) and its more than nuff. Not that theirs time to use FI on corpses when you pretty much kill all groups in a few ww's

Hey, guy, wake up! This is d2c, not d2x.
the max mf for a rare ring is 15%, while 40% for a blue magic ring and 25% for boots.

Hi, that's for LoD. Classic does not have Tombreaver, and the Puts aren't exactly an attractive place to run in Classic.

Your'e right...that's what I get for not actually playing Classic.

They used to spawn back in 1.06 and earlier (along with rare boots with up to 34% mf). So if you are really rich, or have been playing forever you might have some.

fredsta why use two angelic rings instead of switching one for a manald? i'm assuming your axe has mana leech, but i dont see the advantage of using two of those rings

Because you only need a minimal amount of mana leach on a ww barb, using 2 angelic rings with the ammy and armour gives you 50 mf per angelic ring, a massive amount of ar to speed up killing, and other nice mods. I socketed my axe with a perfect skull to get man leach, although you could just find a weapon with base mana leach.

back on topic to mf SORCS , my mf sorc uses a perfect tarn, tancreds ammy and boots, a 17/30/20 shield with resists p diamonded, goldwrap, twitchthroe, shard, magefists, an soj and a 35 mf blue ring. This gives me nice mf, some resists, 75% block and +2 skills. I find it better than a sorc loaded up on pure mf because it can kill faster, has 70 fcr, and isnt as fragile so i can teleport to andy, meph, whereever safely and without decked out mf more rares drop, which is what you want.
