    Hammerdin - 90 - All bosses and the two temples in Kurast Causeway (high level areas), sometimes also going for Hephasto when bored.
    Bowzon - 93 - The Pit/Flayer Jungle/Lower Kurast(chest popping)
    Javazon - 91 - Cow level

    EDIT: Approx. 200-300% MF on every char.

    Zealot 250mf- clear every TC87 area in a run
    Hammerdin 350mf, 475mf on switch WSK, both are single player characters with very minimal trading

    edit, and i found a Shaefers in the pits 3 days ago :D but yeah good items there are few and far between.

    Where: everywhere, essentially. I do prefer WSK/Baal, Durance/Mephisto, RoF/CS/Diablo and Catacombs/Andy for obvious reasons, but I hop around the whole D2 map. A lot of areas are lvl 80+, and lower areas can still drop great stuff...

    Since I take a lot of mules to the forge, I do certain maps considerably more often than others...
    All my mules get Cain as well.

    Char: Skelemancer. Making a Bowazon now.

    MF: somewhere 250-300 with weaponswitch. Bowazon will have next to no MF in her gear as all the slots are needed for other things :-(

    Lvl 91 Hammerdin ~ 250 mfind

    I do 2 kinds of runs depending on mood:

    Short run: just gun straight to my targets, and don't waste time killing other minions or poping chests...

    Andy
    Meph
    Pindle
    Aproximate Time Taken: +/- 6 mins depending on dungeon's sizes

    Long run: pick up and Id every possibly good item, grab all the gold, kill everything and pop all the chests

    Andy and his room
    Meph and Durance of Hate 3
    Pindle & Friends
    Baal and Worldstone Keep 2/3 and Throne Room
    Pits
    Countess
    Cows
    Forge
    Very rarely - Diablo (I HATE doom knights IMing my merc...)

    Aproximate Time Taken: + 30 mins

    Easy enough. Just start it with a different character and go in with your old one.

    If he only has one CD key he'll need to get leg/switch char/open portal/switch char in less than one minute, or wait for at least 5 minutes to be able to switch chars.

    So it's better to start with the main char, do something else, get the leg, then open the portal with the opener...
