"From my experience..."
"Well, I had 300 MF, but no legendary 10 runs"
"No, no.. MP 5 gives you better loot"
"Switching characters can improve your chances"
"Try restarting the game, gives you a better chance of finding legs"
"No. MF is broken!"
"The chances of a legendary is 1/1000 elites"
This right here is called a game guide.
Read the fine print. This is all we know that is 100% fact. All other accusations, as far as we know are false.
This is directly from the game guide. Please learn to read before making bold assumptions
"Magic find affects the quality of items you acquire from killing enemies (but not treasure chests, vases, weapon racks, or other environmental objects). It doesn’t give you a chance to get more items on a given kill – instead, it increases the chance that an item you find will be magical, and more potent than it would be otherwise." - Blizzard Game Guide
This statement means that MF will:
1) Have a better chance to find"rare" "magic" and "legendary" items
2) Have a better chance get MORE affixes on those rares.
Just because you people are having bad luck you rant about MF. Trust me if you ran on 0% MF for 10,000 runs, then ran on 200% MF for 10,000 runs, I'll bet you will get:
More better rolled rares (as in more 5-6 affix rares, thus ultimately improving overall quality of rares)
It increases your "base drop rate" while also increasing your chances of getting MORE affixes.
If you do not have two tests with a large sample size, like 10,000 runs ...Which I know none of you do, and a variable (Magic find in this case) then your
Argument / Data / Assumption / Conclusion is invalid.
