Looking for answers on best gear....

Aloha Dear reader(s),

I am Currently playing a level 87 Strafe-azon, and like it.
I am interested in learning the best set-up for MF hunts AND the best set-up for normal hunting. I have acquired some nice equipment, and I would just like to know the best gear to use. This can be up to all the ubergear.

Hope to hear from the experienced players soon.

This is not the BEST setup but its the comfort area between max MF and killing speed for my strafe zon on the ladder.

Helm - P Topaz SteelSkull
Armor - P Topaz Skullders
Belt - Upgraded 4 slot Goldwrap
Gloves - Laying of Hands
Boots - Cow King Hooves (+20 Dex + 25%mf)
Ammy - Rare Zon Leech + MF + 2 skill ammy

Bow - Shael'd Windforce

MF Charms and Gheeds in inventory - 330 MF

Takes about 5.5 -7 min per pit run depending on distance of pit entrance from outer WP

Great, ty for your input.

Do you find a lot in those runs?, I myself am greatly dissappointed.
I have around 340-350% MF, and on an average of 20 runs a day, i find no keepers for days and days.

Either I am extrmely unlucky , or a lot of peeps on the boards are " not exactly " telling the truth on their Pit-runs on ladder.....

The pit is not Mephisto - It takes a lot of runs to net any quality keeper items. I race against the clock while running the pit to keep the boredom in check. Some of my pit finds are:
IK Armor
Steel Pillar
Shako x 2
Eth Titans
Jah
Eaglehorn
Schaeffers
Valor

The pit takes time and patience. Run the pit in multiplayer games so more items drop.

forget the pitt. Just go save anya in hell difficulty and get the red portal open to do Pindle runs. You can just run right past the first area to the hall where pindle is and throw up your decoy and blast away. You shoudl be able to kill him and his buddies in like 30 seconds and be out of there. Then go directly to the frigid WP and go north like 20 feet. You'll see eldritch and sometimes 1 or 2 other Supers. Then go south to the foothills to kill Shenk.
Some runs you'll only find these 3 Supers, but some runs you'll kill 5-6 supers. This whole run can be done fast with a JAvazon, not sure how a straffzon does. I can do the whole run in 2-3 min and find 5 or 6 rares/uniques each time with only 230% mf. I've found everything from HoZ shield and beyond.

Consider using Tal's armor, mask and belt. It'll give you good MF, very good resists (55% all resist), the all-important dual leech, good dex bonus and a good life/mana bonus. These 3 set items provide the ultimate compliment for an MF zon IMO. The armor is a bit expensive, though.

OT: Do you play USWEST? If so, I'd be interested in your Eth Titans, cuz no one comes to my games, and I've made about 20 or so.
