    Thumbs down Nephalem Valor > Magic Find... MF is Broken

    Hello,

    I wanted to check, how does MF works...
    I used 140MF without NV buff and went to kill Zoltan Kull and he drop non of yellow in 10 games.
    When I have 0 MF and stack of Nephalem Valor (5) 75% mf I'm getting 1-3 yellow and 3-5 blues.


    What You think? How does MF works in D3?

    Jop, bosses are broken. It makes zero sense, but blizzard forces us to not farm bosses tis way and kill elites instead.

    Bosses tend to drop 1-4 rares everytime with full NV buff. Maybe its a bug because you only get guaranteed rares on first boss kill in normal diff, dont know.. But with MF gear and 5NV stack you get pretty awesome stuff from elites/champions and chests.

    The reason bosses don't drop as much is because people complained how Diablo 2 was nothing but doing constant Mephisto, Baal or Pindle runs.

    These drops are explained by how NV buff actually works. It doesn't just increase your MF, there's a hidden effect for bosses only that increases the quantity and quality of drops. You always get at least two rares with 5 stacks regardless of your MF (and something like 6-8 items total).

    I don't think anyone gathered enough data to tell how much your actual MF from gear affects boss drops.

    Here is Problem. I have gear 140mf and 38k dps. And when I go to boss without NV buff I got nothing.

    NV => increase MF by 15% each one to 5 stack
    So in diablo 3 MF =! MF Is ****ing ridiculous
    How does 2 x 3 =! 6 ? No logic here.

    NV does not tell you that it is only for bos it is mf and mf should be mf.

    MF works just fine. Increasing a nearly 0% chance of getting a yellow from Kulle through MF will still result in a nearly 0% chance of getting a rare from him, however

    One of the systems in the game which actually works. Which I guess is praiseworthy.

    Thank You, for Reply, it have to be hiden, but should be explicable in game, because it is no logical.

    It rewards running areas and finishing the run with a boss. I think it's a pretty good system.
