    Max MF of 50% for magical (blue) amulets?

    Is that the top end for a perfect 'Fortuitous' + 'of Luck' ammy? I've only seen one of these drop (42%). Seems like a fairly rare event. Is there an estimate for the probability of generating complimentary affix/suffixes on a magical item?

    Yes, 50% is the max MF on an amulet.
    The chance of getting matching affixes like that is fairly small. You have a 25% chance of getting both prefix and suffix to start with, and while I'm afraid the usual source for probabilities is down at the moment, you then have odds that will be on the 1/100 scale for each of Fortuitous and Luck, and then you also have to get them perfect which is an additional 1/5 and 1/10 respectively. Altogether pretty bad odds.
    The best I've ever found is 41%.

    They did in 1.09, but not anymore. I found a 50%mf amu, and I couldn't sell it for a decent price.

    The affixcalc is back up :)

    At best, the odds are 1 : 4631 for a Fortitious Amulet of Luck (Ilvl 26), a 50% MF one would be much rarer at 1 : 231550.
    At Ilvl 85 (most common Ilvl I guess) the odds are 1 : 12689 for just the affixes and 1 : 634450 for a perfect one.

    I guess the best place to search for the high MF amulets is at the normal cow lvl.

    Thanks RTB....a wealth of information as usual. And as luck would have it, the amulet in question did indeed drop in the normal cow lvl.
