12/30/2013 - Hello all! New year around the corner! I'm back, was gone for a little while, but now I'm going to update the guide and give you my vision for the new year of MF'n!! So, I ripped my previous MF character in Torture Chamber Boss room and remade a Summoner MF to compare the two builds. Summoner MF is a great build I recommend everyone to make one for those moments where you just want to solo farm or just looking for some summoner fun. I kinda got alittle bored of it and im ready to take on my new vision of MF. So without further or do, lets get on with the guide.
My New 1.0.4 End-Game Build Scion Tree
My New 1.0.4 End Game Build Witch Tree
New Shield = New Idea !! XD
So because of this baby:
I've decided to buy 2 Heartbreakers and Swap to the shield on Bosses for more rarity.
Buying two Heartbreakers allows me to still have cullen capabilities throughout the whole map but especially when I swap to the shield for MORE IIR. This build relies heavily on the stats of a archon shield late game so I will not be able to use the shield 100% of the time but I will swap to it, IN a safe place to cullen bosses.
1.0.1 Updates and Person Direction for the build
So as get higher and higher in level and End-Game and see how the build is personally going, I've decided to make a few changes to the build. Your welcome to discuss or follow along with me or tailor how you see fit for yourself.
Obtaining Andvarious Rings x2
Now that I've obtained 1 ring I looking more into survivability and not ripping with low All-Res or Low ES.
So I've decided to take all the Totem DMG nodes off because it wasn't making a significant difference in dmg for me and get more ES nodes. I do plan however to try and obtain totem life and Resistances as best as I can because my totems are dying quite fast in situations where I need to cullenstrike.
Flame Totem vs. Shockwave Totem
Because I've run into countless issues with people complaining about flame totem FPS issues in gameplay. I've been looking for alternate options and I've decided to possibly try and MF with shockwave totem. I don't think it will work properly until I get a 5 link and a few nodes that increase the Area of Effect. Will update once I figure it out.
My new direction for the build is this :
Using a 5 or 6 link of this order left to right
and maybe Enhance
A lot of you may not know me but I've played PoE quite heavily at the start of Open Beta to now. My main focus is to make builds that produce drops. I'm all about the maximizing return on investment and what better way to do that in PoE then to make an MF(Magic Find) Character!
Overview of the MF character:
In my opinion, the sole purpose of a MF character is to come to the table with as much Rarity and Quantity as possible and to ensure last hit on most mobs specifically targeting Blues, Rares, Rogues and Uniques. I believe it is not to be looked as a Damage Dealer but more as a Utility build. With that being said, I make my builds centered around two things. Maximizing IIR and IIQ and survivability.
Pros & Cons
-100% Resistance to Chaos Damage (No need to buy expensive gear w/ chaos res)
-Maximizing investment of time and effort in-game. (Where ever you go you bring MF w/ you!)
-Great Build to meet new people, make new friends/acquaintances
-A very high demand build in Map groups
-Expensive to gear properly and efficiently
-Flame totem causes FPS issues with certain people causing sometimes people not wanting to have you in group
-Annoying to level to end-game
Return On Investment:
MF build are not by any means cheap or affordable! They are quite expensive, but the return is so gratifying! Start saving your currency from the start! Chances are you will rarely see anything drop that will be apart of your build gear wise. The majority of your gear will be from purchases!
Some of the most expensive pieces of gear you will need to start saving up for are the following:
**** 11/4/13 - Been over a week into new leagues and I have yet to see an Andvarius Ring. I think Chris removed it from 4 Month leagues....
Some other 'Key Items' to Buy ASAP
IIQ vs IIR
Because Item Quantity gem and IIQ attribute was technically removed from the game in 4 months league it will in my opinion change the gear setup a little. We want to get the Max about of IIQ we can first and then get IIR everywhere else. Thats's why I personally feel the following items are best in slot:
With these items you can still obtain a maximum of 91% of Item Quantity. Which is pretty impressive. The rest is filled with where ever you can find IIR =D!!!
Basic Info about the build
Normal - Kill all
Cruel - Help Alira (cast speed buff)
Mercilous - Kill all
will be your main spell because it saves you a gem slot combining totem w/ flame dmg. (instead of using two gem slots like Spell totem and spark. We combine flame totem with LMP or GMP along with Cullen strike to effectively Kill shot mobs and bosses.
You will start off HP/ES Hybrid getting all the nearby HP nodes along the way... I will update a level by level skills tree soon to show you the path.
FLASKS <---- Very Important
Here is a section that people rarely talk about that got me killed quite a few times before I had to figure it out on my own:
FOR WHEN YOU CI -
These two flask are MANDETORY!!
Bleeding DMG and Burning DMG are serious stuff in END Game!! If you don't come prepared for countering them when you get hit by them it could cost you your character!!! Try to combine it with Increased Charge Recovery.
Other flasked to have as well:
FOR WHEN YOUR HP/ES HYBRID use:
Gems / Links
The main 4-6 Link will be:
In this order from left to right:
**** You can use Lesser Multiple Projectiles instead of Greater for more DPS or just cause it's cheaper to buy
(Without Heartbreaker) -
(With Heartbreaker) -

The Endgame Build
Grabbing most Totem Nodes
After Playing for a few weeks now there have been some theory-crafting discussions I've been having with my friends and other MF players. Here is a section where I would like to discuss and provide those ideas.
During a Piety Run I was blessed with the drop of:
And then came the discussion that I could swap weapons right before boss to gain an extra 40% rarity. I'm not sure if the cullenstrike on the weapon applies to spells as a heartbreaker but I am still currently using Cullenstrike Gem.
