    Sorry for beeing a newb, - but we got a start somewhere right???

    I have just finished D2 in Normal and are now playing Tristam again and again in NM.
    After I switched to max + in magic find I found set items 4 times in a row.
    Then I went on to the countess and have done everything except Andariel in act 1.
    But now when I go back to Tristram I don't get any set items anymore (3 times in a row).

    Was I just unbelievable lucky in the beginning (my + magic find only amount to around 80%)?
    Am I just unbelievable unlucky now?
    Or does the chance lower as my character gains exp?

    Could it be because one of the items I found was a nice bill - which does the job a lot faster the before???

    I think I saw a calculator for this on the net once. And it didn't ask for my level, how good my equipment was etc, - which could suggest that it was just luck and/or unluck.

    Please comment.

    +100% mf doesnt mean youll find magic items 100% of the time. Its like this:

    [TH="bgcolor: #1A0303"]Magic Find[/TH] [TH="bgcolor: #1A0303"]Rare Find[/TH] [TH="bgcolor: #1A0303"]Set Find[/TH] [TH="bgcolor: #1A0303"]Unique Find[/TH]
    50 46 45 41
    100 85 83 71
    200 150 142 111
    300 200 187 136
    400 240 222 153
    500 272 250 166
    750 333 300 187
    1000 375 333 200
    Thats taken from the Diablo Wiki.

    I guess you were just lucky! And the first time you kill a boss, for example Andariel, you get additional item drops.

    EDIT: Fyi, most players settle for 200+mf. Myself, I build 1 mf char, a sorc, which usually ends up with at least 550 mf. (currently has 607)

    Thanks - I suppose I was mostly too lucky in the beginning then :(

    My sorceress (lvl 78) has an MF of 261% and I have gathered a lot of high quality loot playing her. She's my best character I have so far for item finding and the first ever character to have completed a set thanks to her MF. Here are some of the best items I have gathered so far from her:

    the whole Angelic Raiment (2 Angelic Halos)
    Crescent Moon amulet
    Atma's Scarab
    the Nokozan Relic
    the Mahim-Oak Curio
    the Eye of Etlich (yes! 4 unique amulets!)
    2 Manald Heals
    an ethereal Demon Limb Tyrant club with self repair :eek:
    a Snowclash battlebelt
    teh Aldur's Advance
    the Warpspear Gothic Staff
    2 Heaven's Brethren (Dangoon's, Haemosu's)
    and 2 Tal Rasha`s :eek: omg (Fine spun cloth, Horadric Crest)
