I have now farmed for 50 hours. This is the result:
29 legendaries, 58 rare rings... still no Leoric's Signet :/
- my MF gear: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/VirtuosoZ-1207/hero/2959520
I just found a 24% ring in the Forgotten Ruins too. And I was actually missing a fair amount of MF when I got it; my MF gear set and paragon level 5 add up to 269% starting MF, I only had 2 stacks of valor, and I had Fortune Shrine on, making it add up to 324% by the time the ring dropped on the ground. I wasn't at full stacks because I felt like starting farming runs at the checkpoint right outside the Forgotten Ruins entrance and farming the FR as the first area instead of VotA. I don't even remember whether the group of skeletons I multishotted to get the ring to drop were a group of mobs or an elite pack.

Ouch, I thought I was the only one lol. I'll tally my hours and legendaries in a minute. Just from guess it's 40+ hrs and 28+ legendary.
I think I'm pretty much going to quit today, new patch on the horizon gonna spend time on PTR and I'm about 10 levels behind in paragons due to this and likely items worth more than what I'd find for the ring.

I have that already, I'm committed to farm it out of principle in spending so much time to get it. Think of it as a very overrated achievement lol. I have no intention of using it..however I might want to think about it now since I've lost so much paragon lvl time farming it.

Tried 4 runs, got for legendaries. 1 each time trying. Got the 2x Rabid Strike, Broken Crown and Sin Seekers?. So maybe a legendary each hour. Mostly from non-elite packs.
Got 268 mf without Valor, maybe more with the Sunkeeper on (Paladin has MF-gear as well).
Selected Black Soulstone quest, Nepalem Valor buff around Alcarnus and then from Oasis till Kulle or Belial.
Before the patch (1.0.5) hits you can still go over 375% from follower bonuses. I believe you get 20% of the effect from their gear. MF Rings Amulet and Shield are what im using on templar.
Read blue post: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6413171867?page=1#15
Combined MF from gear, shrine, and follower is intended to cap at 300%. However as of 1.0.4, equipping your follower with MF gear appears to raise your Magic-Find beyond 300% as it is displayed in your Details tooltip.
Example: I have 295% MF gear + paragon 6% = 301%, and my tooltip shows 300%. (Cap working as intended.) Now I hire my 17% MF enchantress. That number goes up to 317%. This does not mean that my MF is actually going above 300% -- only that there is a bug with the number displayed in my tooltip, making it appear as 317%, when in fact it is still only 300%.
Either way, Blizzard will certainly fix this MF in the next patch -- meaning you should NOT buy any expensive follower gear to try to surpass 300% MF right now. Bad investment. In fact, if you have a 45% MF Sun Keeper you should probably sell it now, as it's value will drop substantially when 1.0.5 goes live.
Can't say I am happy about the number of legendary drops I have had in 2 weeks (2x belt, 2x chest armor, 2x bow), but my search has FINALLY ended, got a 26% yesterday morning. I had settled in for the last couple of days doing the following with max MF;
Black Canyon to Alcarnus for NV then Sewers and Oasis.
I must say I was pretty damn happy when it did eventually drop I had nearly given up hope!! Came off a Swarm elite pack in the sewers.
