suggestions on hammerdin mfing...?

well i got bored of ladder pvp and wanted to mf a bit, so i made a hammerdin.

i need suggestions as to where i can effectively mf and how to get my mf up past 350.

i can solo any part of the game pretty easily, but that's with rushing/pvm equipment.
shako
hoto
enigma
HoZ
perf mara
2x soj
arach
magefist
silkweaves
call to arms + lidless on switch

merc
botd ghost spear
tal armor
shako


i wanted to figure out a way to get good mf, without having to tp back to town to put on mf gear just to get the final hit. hell baal is a snap, and so is the pit. but i'm tired of running out of mana or having to tp back to town for mf gear.
ist ist ali baba
49 wartravs
perf chance

so...any suggestions? i'm going to ist my HoZ and ptopaz my shako. my merc already has ptopazed everything. thanks for any help.

btw: i can't believe i made a paladin other than a zealot, lol.

Why mf'ing? You already got most of the good items this game has to offer.

If you really want more mf, may I suggest that expensive is not equivalent to good. For example, why put tal's armor on a merc? Only **% mf, it is far worse than a Skullders. Give merc an Eternity weapon, instead of a BotD to get 30% more. Use a 6-Ist crystal sword yourself, if that does not hurt your casting too much.

my merc dies without res, so tal's gives 40 to all but poison. i also ptopazed it, so it has 112 now. eternity i could go for. i could also go 6ist sword, but the point is to kill...and not have to tp back to town every few minutes. i might try silence, as it has some mf and + 2 skills.

While my Hammerdin has a HotO, when Mfing, I normally use ali baba's with 2 ists in it, and it does not hurt the killing power to much.. The hammers do massive damage anyhow, so I would suggest that route.

Use frosties or chance for the gloves. Fcr isnt too important while mfing. And if you really need mana why not put a single point in either redemption or meditation? That way you could use war travs all the time.

that's true. i already finished all the skills at 80 and i'm at 84, so i have all the rest of my skill pts to go. now then..where should i mf?

Don't baal runs have a higher tc? So wouldn't that make baal runs a better choice?
all worldstone lvls, chaos sanctuary, the pit, etc etc are all the same lvl and can drop anything in the game.

Find a nice elite pally shield with 30+ resistances, throw a Shael and an Eth in there for a nice 25% MF with CBF, excellent blocking, and over 50 resist all.
