    Hi there...

    I just wanted to ask if this is still working.

    From few days i'm having no better loot while MF swap (before elite kill obv.)

    Anyone have considerations and/or tested thees days??

    Thanks

    I've only done a few runs and indeed I do not seem to see noticeable improvements with the switch. I was wondering the same thing. However it might just be a stream of bad luck, I lack evidence to claim it does not work any more.

    It should still work. My DH uses a full MF set of gear for combat, and I definitely notice a lot more rares dropping than when I farm with a toon that doesn't have any.

    Do you mean that you swap ALL EQUIP OF YOURS before an elite kill???? o_O

    You should play Starcraft 2 man... you would have an APM at least of 300

    Nah, I geared my DH with a set of gear that has high MF + enough dex and all resist to do ok in A1 Inferno.

    But doing a gear swap with all gear wouldnt be too hard with practise anyway.

    Haha I did used to play sc2... but I wasn't good at it. My APM in it was terrible =P

    Do you have your MF items always on then ? If so, it seems you are not swapping to MF gear just before the kill. No ?
    Btw I did a few more run but I still cannot come to a conclusion.

    I haven't noticed any change when i gear swap in Whimseyshire. I still seem to get more rares when i get a chance to swap over.

    I doubt they would ninja nerf it considering all the blue posts about it.

    If there was some sort of nerf you'd see it in your details screen. Its still working as always, but i wish they would hurry up and make a decision so they can put MF back on chests.

    I'm pretty fine with stacking NV, but that's just me.

    BTW, are the percentages simply added together or do certain sources provide a multiplier of its own? For example, the 25% MF shrines are less useful if added th the NV bonus.

    MF is stacking together, no diminishing curve...

    btw. the increase in yellow, especially from normal mobs (since I got higher MF) is significant, hard to say about elites, where you have guaranteed rare... also more affixes on yellow items (6) are more frequently seen....

    now that i know theres actually 4 tiers to rares from 3 to 6 affixes, stacking more MF even with elites "guranteed" rare makes sense, since it probably goes through the normal legendary->6->5 etc and just has a failsafe 100% chance when it checks 3 affixes.

    That would be the most straight forward way of implementing it i think, and there does seem to be a large focus on simplfying all the equations in D3 compared to D2.
