Does MF decrease the probability of dropping normal items ? According to ATMA, it doesn't. Although usually I 100% believe ATMA, this time I have some doubt: I thought that a dropped magic or rare item, or unique, with not enough MF to trigger a magic/rare (or set/unique etc.) drop, would have been normal. So it seems to me, but I could be wrong, that the residual probability of dropping a normal with a high MF should be the probability of dropping it with zero MF, diminished by the sum of probabilities of dropping a magic/rare etc. caused by the high MF. Maybe it is marginal only, but the numbers are strictly identical in ATMA (I compared them for Archon Plate, but it should be the same for all items, I guess). Also there is an apparent feeling, when in game, that more normal (or socketed) items drop with little MF than with high MF. But this could just be an appearance, due to the little or no blue/yellow items dropping with no MF. Any idea or correct theory to contradict the views above ?
