An odd number, eh? And I guess the number of lucky charms you're wearing and if you have a horseshoe hanging over your computer are also a factor.magnum said:just wondering what the perfect mf% is. B/c i seem to find better when my % is around 360, and an odd number. then over 500 its good also. Just asking what the ideal % is.
Best MF percentage imho is about 200-250. After that the diminishing returns on MF, especially unique, kick in pretty badly. And with 200-230 your killing speed barely suffers. Anyone who says he can still kill as fast with 700 MF is simply lying. Killing speed is a major factor, especially when you run the pit. If I do a run in 3 min with 200MF and you do the same run with 700MF in 9-10min you are not going to find better items than me.adamfgt78 said:An odd number, eh?

Seriously, there is no magic number. More is better, but not when it effects you're killing or surivial rate. 350-400 or so should be sufficient. If more mf beyond that effects your killing, the small increase in actual mf won't be worth it.
magnum said:i dont understand this... i mean if mf is what it says then the more the mf the better and more frequent good items will drop, i seem to hae ve found better by running in and killing suff with my palli, which took me 20 or so andy/meph runs to find a shako and a few skullders, i found just today doin 1 cow run a bartucs a valk wing and 2 ums, and more than 90% of the time i find chit, thx for all of your imput guys, this might help me take a different approach on my mf'ing
I disagree. I've done both, although the range was 250 for fast, and 800 for slow. My reasoning is: elite items don't drop all that often, so I want the maximum chance of them being uniques, set, rare, even magical. I noticed a huge difference in item quality between the two mf levels. Seeing a white item drop with 800 mf in the Pit is an event.Daemonaz said:If I do a run in 3 min with 200MF and you do the same run with 700MF in 9-10min you are not going to find better items than me.
I think........ MF numbers aside... you are one lucky person.... lolmagnum said:naw i wasnt exxaggerating it really happened, i umd my friends upd hoz, and umd one of the shakos. I found a couple wc weaps, and another crecent moon today, i guess it really has to do on the speed of the run, that info helped out a shitload
