Magic Find Cap

(Locked)

I've heard so many conflicting answers about this its ridiculous.

So what is it?

Is it 375% - (300 + NV)
Is it 550% - (base 300 plus MP10)
Is it 625% - Base 300 plus MP10 plus NV)

I've heard all 3 of the above figures quoted.

So which one is it and what is your source please?
300% base cap.

NV stacks break that cap, as do MP levels.

So, if you're farming MP10, you can get 300% base, plus 75% NV stacks, plus 250% MP levels. 625%.

Technically, everything you just said is correct, you can just add everything together.

625%, Gotcha. Thanks.
Character MF + (NV * 15) + (MP * 25) = MF

Character MF can never be higher than 300.

EDIT: I guess I also want to point out the reason you probably feel you are getting "different" answers is because you need to look at the equation. NV and MP are part of the equation, the maximum MF possible in MP 1 and MP 10 are very different.

the MP bonus is also different depending on what difficulty you are running. eg the above values are correct for Inferno whereas the bonus per MP level is less on Hell.

also worth noting a change that is/will be in the PTR that means Fortune shrines will stack on top of any MF/GF value you have, so the +25% you get will add and exceed any cap that you may currently be up against.
in 1.07 the cap is

300% (gear+followers+shrine total cap)
75% (NV)
250% (inferno mp10)
total 625%

in 1.08 the MF/GF cap is
300% (gear+followers total cap)
25% (shrine)
250% (inferno mp10)
30% (strength of many. 3 additional player buff)
75% (NV)

Currently in patch 1.0.7, the hard cap on Magic Find is 625% (300% soft cap + 75% NV stacks + 250% MP 10 on Inferno).

Starting in patch 1.0.8 however, the Magic Find bonus from shrines will be able to exceed the “soft cap” of 300% that players can achieve from a combination of their own gear and their follower’s gear. In patch 1.0.8 we’re also adding a buff to multiplayer games called “Strength in Numbers” which allows for a 10% bonus to Magic Find, Gold Find, and experience per additional player in a multiplayer game, up to a maximum of 30% in a four-player game. The Magic Find and Gold find bonuses of this multiplayer feature can exceed their respective 300% cap as well.

So after patch 1.0.8, if you have 300% Magic Find from your gear, have 5 stacks of NV (+75% MF), are playing on Inferno at MP10 (+250% MF), have a Fortune Shrine buff active (+25% MF), AND are playing a four player multiplayer game (+30% MF), you can hit the maximum of a 680% bonus to Magic Find. Shiny!

Keep in mind that this cap will be lower for if you aren’t playing on Inferno and/or aren’t using Monster Power level 10, etc.

Follower + Multiplayer Bonus XP? So we can use follower in group in the coming patch?!
I tough that in 1.0.8 NV, multiplayer bonus and shrine would be multiplicative instead of additive, that means you could reach even higher values.
(300 (char) + 250 (MP10))*2.05(NV + 4 players) = 1127,5
Isn't it the case anymore ??

No. he wrote wrongly.

I've stated earlier

in 1.08 the MF/GF cap is
300% (gear+followers total cap)
25% (shrine)
250% (inferno mp10)
30% (strength of many. 3 additional player buff)

total = 680%

I don't think so. I think the Blue mean 300MF from Gear/follow. You can't get more than 300MF on your character and thats from Gear and/with follower or Paragon 100.

Max 300MF - From Gear/follower or Paragon 100
Max 75MF - From 5NVs. 1 NV is 25% MF
Max 25MF - From Shrine
Max 250MF - From Playing on MP10. Each MP worth 25% MF
Max 30MF - From a full party. Each player that join you worth 10% MF "NEW"

300+75+25+30+250 = Total 680%. Thats the max MF we can get after in 1.0.8.

I went ahead and edited my original post for clarity.

In patch 1.0.8, followers will function just as they do currently in patch 1.0.7. If you are playing solo, then they can join you on your adventures, but if you are playing multiplayer, they will remain in town.

Whether you are playing solo (with a follower) or multiplayer (without a follower), the soft cap of Magic Find that you can achieve from your hero's gear, your follower's gear, and the contributions of your Paragon levels is 300%.
I thought the full party bonus was a multipler, not an addition; So:

650% * 1.3 = 845?

Just patch 1.08 already so you can bring out itemization !


Imma agree. I have enjoyed the PTR and I see that it is a ! WiN !, so drop it live, ASAP, plz???
Can we pretty please remove the MF cap and implement a diminishing returns system?

Since I'm making requests, can we pretty please remove MF bonus from paragon (and GF too) so that MF matters again as an end-game affix? Let's make D3 play like a Diablo game pretty please.


Support. The dev team always say diversity but every movement they make is anti diversity
