Does MF increase only the chance that a rare will drop? or does it also increase the chance the items stats will be better

If it works anything like it did in D2, then it has a chance to increase the quality of the item dropped, meaning legendary>rare>magical>exceptional>regular. The stats on the individual item will be on par with other similar items found without magic find.

TLDR, MF causes more frequent drops, but the quality remains the same.

Don't forget it improves the quality of the particular lved item:

That's why you will fine a LV 50 rare and then with magic find a lv 50 rare that's TWICE AS POWERFUL!!!? You'll be like WTF!? Isn't this the SAME lv item? The answer is YES, BUT bc of the higher rate of a higher chance quality item dropping then that is what will be provided.

I was curious and questioning till I started farming with over 150% MF and was like HOLY WOW COW!
