How much mf% do you use?

Just wondering how much mf% ppl are using to find all this godly gear.

My 85 trapsin has 513% base, merc 121% and I have found little of note doing multitudes of E/S/P runs, some pit runs, etc.
Do the D2 Gods hate me or what?

My sorcy has 260 mf base w/ 325 on switch.

My sin has 250 mf.

Best find was a Shako from Hell Meph.

I usually play with around 15 to 150 MF. Anymore and I find that my resists aren't golden (assuming they were before!) or that I'm sacrificing too much gear necessary for survival. My main MFer at this point is my summoner Necro, who's lvl 82 and uses Ali Baba (no ists yet...), tal's belt (13%), 28 Nagel and a couple of charms, 5 and 7.

Best find so far... hrmm. I'll let you know when I find it!

I ususally run with between 150 and 200. I never give up resists for MF.

Best find.................shako from NM Baal.

My MF is generally curved. Character starts with 0, starts finding more and more MF gear, peaks at around 250, starts finding more and more good PvM gear, MF stays around 50 by accident (shako).

Oh, and my 2 best finds were SS with 53% from pindle while I was bored one time, and 202-931 self repairing dual leech cryptic axe with <100 from Eldritch when my sin was just starting out. Oh, I made baal drop a Tal's armor [email protected]% (I know it was my kill because merc got exp) but that went to the telesorc.

Running Hell:
~580 on the sorc
Merc = 0

Running NM:
~580 on the sorc
~180 of the merc


Used to be right at 800 before Porsche decided not to be with me anymore. Oh now THAT was an MF sorc.

Level 77 orb sorc for NM - 320ish.

Level 85 summoner necro for Hell - About 20 (Say what you want, but he's safe, very safe).

My best find was Tal's armor in the Pit.

580!?! How do you get that much mf?

I tought I was doing good in hell with 80 resist all with 50 mf from 3 pieces of the IK set. Man my mf guys are lame :(

Too bad mf doesn't help when it comes to finding runes... damn countess, I'm only 248,000 elds from chains of honor (the number is probably wrong, too much whiskey to calculate the exact number).... sigh

I have around 200ish mf but you should try and go for around 400, if you can get around 800, tho if u can't stay nearer to 400 i heard its better if u do.

Ive found so much more playing with 100-200% then i ever did in 09 with 2-3xs that. I see no reason to stack on 400, 500 , 600% mf if you sacrifice anything to do so.

Well if you do lots of meph runs, then you can sacrifice a little. Weapon switch is the main thing, my weapon switch adds 254 mf

Amen. I am running abou 150 on my lvl 75 Zon and have maxed resists in Hell. I'd rather be safer than richer...but that's just me.

Best finds? GA and a PUL...but I'm just starting Hell so hopefully better to come. ;)

Around 60. May not be alot but keeps my level 92 FA/IA amazon (yes, a bow amazon, who would have thought?) alive. Also good enough to help me find Tal's Armor. :)

My mephrunner has 3%MF, from a coldres sc with a second mod wich is 3%MF. She finds things like azure, LS, thunderstroke's, slayergaurd, etc... I have a concbarb to run eldritch and shenk again with no MF, amongst other things he has found 2 storms.

What ever they can have and get resists!

My Sorc is a lvler build wiht Alibaba and some 5-6 mf charms so I will gess might be 150ish. Necro uses Skullcollecter in Pit type runs and has a couple mf charms so maybe 100. I find most of what I need but havent found anything in the pit to talk about other than some nice charms and jewels and a few rares.

If I can snag a Shako and feel more comfortable on my sorc I will have more, but rihgt now she is built to live and find crap second. I have seen way to many peeps build up some MF, load em out and go die. I have NEVER lost an MF character and dont intend to.

Lvl 84 MF javazon with ~250 MF (or so).
HF merc with 170 MF

Resists in hell are max 75 except for cold at about 50, and poison at 30-ish. I could easily max on switch if I socketed Rebuke sheild with a diamond.

Never found much good:
Tianawhatevers Rebuke (sheild)
Duriels shell
2x Dwarfstars
Rare eth 615 dmg polearm class merc weapon (works awesome, but still not as good as hone sudan)
Tals ammy
Tals mask

Just found some rare maiden javs: +2 jav skills, replenish, mana steal. Upgrade to exceptional left them at 110 max throw damage. Not bad for 1 gold-repair. Sure, they're not titans, but on the other hand they come with built-in mana leech (which titans lack).

Waiting for my 2nd cdkey so I can MF hell much more safely with lvl 32 BO attached to my body. :) I've been doing eld/shenk/pit mostly in hell up to this point.

I've currently got a 69 sorc with a full Angelics set which gives me around 90% mf and rare mesh boots with another 16%mf on them. Did some runs in NM Saturday and found:

Spire of Honor Lance - from Pindle
Skin of Viper Magi - from Shenk
Lum rune - from superunique on my way to Meph
Blastbark bow from - Pindle
Heartcarver rondel - Andariel.

Also found rare plus asn plus skills ammy w/ teleport from Pindle.

I believe that was over the course of about 25-30 runs.

Also found several other common low-level uniques which I tossed in a act 1 pubbie for people to grab.
