Yikes. 50MF on a follower only gives 10MF. The gimp you give to them stacking MF almost makes it not worth it.

You could have seen this by looking at the follower's stat details, for future reference.

It's not a big deal unless you don't have that great of gear on your character. There's a point that you kill stuff so fast that they can't really help anyway. But for much lesser geared people, yeah, there's a trade off. It's good this way since you have to weigh the small MF benefit against some extra DPS. If you could get 50% MF everyone would probably do that no matter what and it would be a "no brainer".

Followers do so little damage anyway that I load them up with MF just to make every little bit count.

Does it still apply if the follower is dead?

It only gives 20%? Can you Double it in the next patch, please?

I use Kormac for max MF, his damage is terrible but the heals / regen / stuns are nice. Basically I just give him vit/mf gear with a legendary 25% mf 1hand.
