Well, i've been MFing with my trapsin for awhile now. I really enjoy playing with that char and she makes MFing fun.
I've mostly been around travi+pindle+shenk i nightmare but wanted better drops so now i do shenk+boss above shenk+pindle in hell. The drops arent that good (about 400mf) so I do some runs in the ancient tunnels in lost city where i've found some good stuff. IK parts and Bul Kathor (spelling?) ring. But yet, those were a lot of runs and most of the time i got crap.
Where do you recommend a lightning trapsin to MF at? Wish I could do travi in hell but they are always lightning immune.
The reason I post it here, is because we HC players are aware of the resists and gear and cant boost our MF like SC players. If I post this at the general forum i'll prolly get a lot of silly answers
in nm places like the pit and ancient tunnels don't have anything special. in hell those places have a high mlvl meaning they can drop really high items. in nm they dont have this, so dont bother running those areas.
for nm stick to eldritch/shenk, pindle is ok but not as good as eld/shenk IMO. You could also do meph but i find eld/shenk to be much faster/more profitable.
eld/shenk aren't act bosses so they dont drop a unique or rare every time but they do have the chance to. it just takes some patience to get these guys to spit something out.
for a trappasin, seems like you're already running the best spots. meph and andy are just too long to get to without tele. So s/e/p and the ancient tunnels are good choices. The only problem with the tunnels (i love running them with my sorc cause no cold immunes) is that there aren't a ton of bosses. You could try the pit... but those archers are li, right? Could also run the tower if your merc is good enough. Tons of bosses there (though again, some light immunes).
So just keep doing what you're doing... the drops will come.
[COLOR=Lime]Besides what was mentioned, I'd also recommend Andy. She can have some pretty sweet drops in hell too. If you are looking for a soj, someone posted the odds of her dropping in nm, and I believe they were pretty good.[/COLOR]
I have found the best drops from meph so far but a run lasts about 20 min(ouch) I have bout 550 mf and eldrich never drops uni. but i have cleared above him in frigid for some good drops. Of 500 mf runs I have yet to find any really super drops.
