    I've seen 30k+ drop at a time, but im sure you can get much higher than that with some Lem rune equipment.

    30k is about the highest I've seen but maybe tonight I'll go hit the council with chancies + 2 dwarf star + gheeds + ali-baba and see what drops :)

    Since I gambled a Tal's Ammy I've been gambling mad :)

    2600% is nuts.

    I reckon a barb would be best. Equipment? Hmmmm...

    Crown of thieves-100% (+lem=150%)
    Gf ammy (30%?)
    Wealth-300%
    2 lem'd babas (assume lvl 80)-700%
    Goldwrap-80%
    dwarf stars-200%
    chancies-200%
    infernostrides-70%

    1730% so far. Good ww killing weapons would probably be BOTD + silence zerkers (silence for resists + skills)
    So about 1000% gf comes from charms (gheeds =160% at best tho).
    All I need are BOTD and silence :(

    Oh yeah, and a boatload of lems.:D

    Hmm maximum Gold Find char -

    Barb's Gear
    150 - Crown of Thieves (Lem)
    080 - Ammy
    300 - Wealth
    900 - Two 6xLem weapons
    200 - Chance Guards
    200 - 2xDwarf Star
    080 - Belt
    080 - Boots
    500 - Charms (620 on-ladder with Gheed's)
    ====
    2490% Gold Find (2610% on-ladder)

    Merc's Gear
    150 - Crown of Thieves (Lem)
    450 - 6xLem weapon
    300 - Wealth
    ====
    900% Gold Find

    Total Gold Find with merc getting the kill = 3390% (3510% on-ladder)

    I'd probably do the skills like this -
    - Max BO, Mastery, Frenzy
    - 10 War Cry
    - 8 Natural Resist
    - 1 Berserk, Whirlwind and prereqs
    - rest in Find Item

    Mana would be an issue, so you'd probably have to wear Crescent Moon instead of an ammy with Gold Find. Also, resists would be quite low.

    Best char would be a Necro IMO. Do hell cows, take down one, CE the rest, pick up the massive gold piles afterwards.

    IF you managed to find an amulet with a perfect 'of wealth' suffix, you could get up to 80% gold find.

    I guess you guys forgot adding the gold find charms into the equation.

    If you're off ladder, pre 1.09 belts and boots could get more than 80. FYI I have a pre 1.08 belt with 104 GF. Not to mention 1.08 war travelers are 100 GF.

    Assuming you have the best gold find charms possible, you could have 10x Grands and 10x Smalls, for a total of 500%.

    Well that's true, but not as worse as wishing for perfect GF on a rare belt, rare boots, goldwrap, or infernostrides.

    I seem to find alot of goldfind scs(usually perfect) 1/3 the time. So I'm sure those are common. The grand ones being 40GF is a little more tricky. Having the mod shimmering or a skill charm that'll help you, even more trickier.

    The only ones that can ever hit the max or near max and kill well are the magic users. I think I wrote a max GF char outline a long while back.

    I have a non-ladder level 99 Necro that is a goldfinder. With the merc he's got about 2550% goldfind and used to do Hell cows and get 8K-14K gold per cow. Hell Travincal dropped the most, highest I remember was 110K. I'm making another one on ladder at this very moment, only level 20 and has about 460% goldfind right now. Gonna use him for gambling :)
