"Uh, no. Thats wrong. all off it".
Really? How so? I have facts to back up my statements. Mostly paraphrased from a blue. So, how is all of my post wrong? Did blizz not say that it rolls in a certain order? did they not say that mf increases odds of more/better affix rolls?
did they say "yes, mf increases probability of a set or legendary item drop"?!?!?! NOOOOOO! They never said that mf increases probability of a legendary or set item drop.
Nice try on the edit to bud! Nice try. gg

They claim MF does not do anything but increase odds of more an better affixes per roll. And it decides first if its a set, leg, rare, magic, white, or nothing at all.
In other words. Legendary and Set items have an established "probability" that they will drop, and MF increases odds that said drop will have more affixes and allegedly better ones.
Again, they make statements, but its nothing clear cut "yes, having MF increases chance of a legendary drop". Because IT DOES NOT.
Case in point. 1.04 "we will quadruple drops". Note, they did not directly say that this had anythign to do with legendarys or sets. We all could see the difference in the amount of rares and magic items, but what about sets an legendarys? Did their drop rate get quadrupled?
Nope. That did not change until patch 1.05. "we will double the drop rate of set an legendary items".
This could mean. Yes, at first the legendarys and sets were quadrupled in patch 1.04, along with all other items, and in 1.05 they were again doubled. Not likely.
Its more like 1.04 saw no change from 1.03 in legendary an set item drops. The change was independant and only affected rares and magics.
TLDR: Set and Legendary items will drop at the same rate with or without MF. Look at the wording. It rolls set, leg, rare, magic, white or nothing. If it rolls a rare, the affixes roll next.
So increasing affix odds has no impact on overal leg or set drop. There.
