    Some days, you just have it

    I don't know if this is how it goes for most people, but for me it usually seems to go feast or famine for MF. For example, I've found 4 BK rings total on realms, but 2 came in one day and the other 2 on another single day a few months later. Today, after a dry spell this week, I hauled in:

    Vampire Gaze
    Shadow GC
    Tomb Reaver
    Herald of Zakarum
    Stormlash (!)

    ...and made a 5 bc / 6 bo / 3 b CTA. Woot! Any others string together some nice finds?

    I know what you mean, man.

    I had a very nice week, last week.
    Grand total of three Arach's, two Mara's, one Shako, a ****load of godly rare rings and weapons, two Eschuta's, one Death's Fathom, two pairs of War Traveller's, eight skillers (three with a nice life mod), five good Raven Frosts and three 20 life SC's.

    A great week!

    Well since this post is already up... Yesterday, I was trying to do a countess run but noticed a tree next to the WP and realized i was in the Dark Wood instead of Black Marsh. I figured let's see what that boss would drop since I already see him. One hammer... dead.. and nothing. But the hammer continues and kills one of his minions and out pops... a freakin Lo Rune! You sometimes have to trudge through dry spells, but you gotta love it when you get on a nice roll like this.

    LOL Excellent story.
    Some of my best drops have been from anonymous monsters on my way to my MF target (e.g. AoKL in the Black Marsh on my way to visit the Countess).

    I don't hardly mf anymore, so this was even more interesting for me, but last week i had one day where i did my 10 gold find runs with my gf barb, and on one of the last runs, got a 5ll bk ring. So i got kinda excited, and ran meph 4 times after that with my sorc, got a pair of eth treks on the second run, and an arachs on the third run. Best drops ive ever gotten :D And i havent got jack since then either, lol.

    Hey, I'm thinking about making an mfer when I get Diablo up and running. Got any tips? Like what class, what gear, where to MF? Anything is appreciated.

    worst bad streak:
    3x 12/1 faiths in a row (all in different bows i dont like to reroll hr using r/w).

    best streak:
    gore riders and war travs a few feet apart in same chaos game

    i've had worse luck and better luck but those are the ones i remember because all the instances happened on the same day.
