hand weapon with MF on it

Do you guys know of any single hand weapon with more then 100% Better MF on it?

I am currently playing a MF Sorceress and I am using a gull dagger. I was just wandering, if there was anything better out there.

dual ist ali baba or socket the gull with ist. Another one would be 6 ist crystal sword(or some 6 socket weapon you feel comfortable). Kinda hard for people who don't have much ist runes

Blade Of Ali Baba
Tulwar

One-Hand Damage: (25-35) To (56-77) (40.5-56 Avg)
Required Level: 35
Required Strength: 70
Required Dexterity: 42
Durability: 32
Base Weapon Speed: [20]
+60-120% Enhanced Damage (varies)
+ (2.5 Per Character Level) 2-247 % Extra Gold From Monsters (Based On Character Level)
+ (1 Per Character Level) 1-99 % Better Chance of Getting Magic Items (Based On Character Level)
+15 To Mana
+5-15 To Dexterity (varies)
Socketed (2)

Ideal end-game MF weapon. MF per level, 2 sockets for MF jewels/Ist runes, and can be upgraded if desired too.

If you had insane amounts of luck the absolute best one-handed MF weapon is an 'IstIstIstIstIstIst' Phase Blade. 180% MF, and still room for a shield. (Or another Phase Blade if you're a Barbarian!)

but the odds of finding an ali baba, enough runes, and still having 2 socket rewards from larzuk are slim unless you plan it that way.

Every Blade of Ali Baba has 2 sockets. You don't have to use your socketing rewards to gt those :)

Also keep in mind that an Ali-Baba socketed with perfect topazes is decent enough.

Once you have several ists to spare you should be able to afford the unsocketing recipe.

Not quite, the topazes would add lightning damage, unless that's what you meant. MF jewels are pretty easy too come by, though. :)

Just as a reminder but a topaz only gives mf on armor and helms. On weapons it just gives lightning damage, and shields rest lighting.

Helms: 24% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items
Armor: 24% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items

Jewels with magic find are reasonably easy to come by. By the time you find an Ist you'll probably have found many more Ali Babas so you don't have to worry too much about the sockets.

If you like to gamble you could also socket Lems for the gold find.
