im gonna have to agree becuase i just found an soj in act 1 hell just walking around and my mf is only 400 so i dont really think it matters too much. I wouldnt sacrice grear for mf. unless gear already has mf on it
I think you all underestamate mf. Its chance to find a magic item. Magic is blue. It does not mean more chance to find uniques. And you do find lots of blue items. Although more chance on magics increases chance on rares. Since the mf increases magic items and not lets say sockets. Magic items have a chance to become rares and uniques and sockets don't. so passively it does help.
Try mf'ing for 4 hours with a char with 650 mf and one with 0 mf. I will garantee the one with 650 mf finds more "useable" stuff.
well if it didnt matter then why would blizzard put it in?? think about it. why would they lie to us and tell us that you will have higher percentage of mf if it didnt really matter??
anyways i think that your mf percentage is a crucial factor and it does matter on whether or not you get a unique. i used to spend my time mfing with 250 and kept getting goldwraps, nagelrings, and other common stuff. ive never found anything worth more than a pul.
the best i ever found was a 3 socketed dusk shroud which i used for a nigma. anyways i want to make a point that people with larger mf's get higher levels of items. soj is a very rare item and people with very large mf's find them every now and then when i have never found one.
there i have disabled the argument that mf doesnt matter. sorry killing lil things but i had to do it. its not personal.
what most people dont notice is that Runes (in general) arent magic items. A high value of mf (chance to get a better magic item) will make each mob, say the countess, drop a magic item and thus no (high) rune. A good % of chance to get a better item (meaning better than the random generator would create) gives u more chance to get say, a rare instead of blue. Set instead Rare and Unique instead Rare/Set. Which item will drop is 100% random. Its just the quality the % mf works for.
mobs that drop everything are mainly Diablo, Pindleskin and Baal. Choose the one u want and test ur patience ;P

wrong....u can have 0 mf and still find an soj.....u can have 0 mf and still find best item in game......nm andy(or anyone) can't drop any better items per say if u have 500 mf comparred to 100 mf she can only drop items matching her monster leval or lower....just with higher mf u have a better chance at finding the better items that she is capable of dropping...like we have been saying item type to be dropped is determined befor quality of item....so if game wants to drop ring....its gonna drop a ring but ur mf helps decide if the ring is set magical rare or unique.....
well i guess i stated it wrong. i was making your point. what i meant was that my mf was crappy and that was why i wasnt finding anything. i feel a good mf is like 500 but its hard to accomplishing without sacrificing power. howevers since nm andy is the most likely monster to drop it, i think it would be easy to sacrifice since i made a good build with my orbtress.
yes....i run nm andy the most..even with my levl 80 hardcore mfer sorc....i could run hell andy ....but if nm andy drops a set ammy...small chance its a tals and if she drops a unique ring....small chance its a soj...only problem with nm andy whos mosnter leval is 49....skiller gcs need a monster of leval 50 or higher to drop,,,ouch
then i guess it would be an act of war towards the entire community to kill him then huh?? o well. little penguin know that you exist only because of your friend. lord silver i recommend a wolf as your friend. wolves are vicious carnivores that are smart, hunt in groups with a plan, and tear their prey apart. they are man's true best friend. only thing is that you must earn their trust early on. if you are not worthy of their trust they will not be loyal. but the wolf was to see you as a capable leader he will follow you to the depths of hell.
yes yes it is i have found an soj cowing b4 as well with piss all mf, i found a ist and vex doin the a hell cow game same game again with piss all mf. Why did blizzard put mf in the game cuz they could, why did they put the gem in thejoin/ create game area cuz they could. I have to agree that some mf is better then none but i dont think that having 1000mf you will find better items more often then somone with only 300 that is just my opion anyway.
