Should i make an mf sorc?

Right now i have a lovely dualdreem zeal sorc and i can afford a secondary mf sorc easy. The reason i'm thinking if because i hear of so much nice stuff ppl find while mfing in baal games and such. I know it's late in ladder but it could be nice to mf once in a while^^

For MF, the question is never about the cost of making the char, it's always "do you have the patience?"

I agree with kuafu. MFing fun until you get bored. Then better have a brake. MFing between trades sounds good for some variety. Still it will mean endless runs until something really pricy drops.

Just for MFing Andy, Mephisto, Baal you might want to go simply with a pure Blizz Sorc. Other options are Meteorb or Blizzballer.

Personally, I don't see much point in MFing for uniques at this point in the ladder. There's more wealth in socketables and keys (at least that's economy in US East)

re:

What I did was make an lighting/eshield sorc for key running and mfing and I do great. About 10 minutes per run, and I mf/key run Countess, Summoner, Meph, Pindle, Nith, and Baal.

Well, if you like finding the items yourself, then MF is terrific. Sometimes some items just aren't available for trade for whatever reason.

we can talk all day about MF%, where and how to run, but in the end its all pretty random. All you can really do to get around it is to do lots and lots of MF runs - eventually the drops will come.

The odds are you will never be able to find a complete tal set yourself, but you can probably find something valuable enough to trade for entire set. Make sure you know what has value and what doesn't. You may never find the items you are looking for, but odds are you will find something valueable sooner or later.

ok, well that does make sense, its just so dang frustrating that whenever u want something that the person that will sell it to u, will drive the price up

Try to trade on this forum, people are usually reasonable here.
