    Magic find useless for charms?

    http://diablo3.ingame.de/tips/calcs...ch=110&mode=lod&interface=default&window=true

    is this calculator accurate? i was trying to figure out what my odds were of getting charms off of random mobs with varying amounts of magic find....

    According to the calculator, magic find doesn't even matter, your odds of getting charms off any mob are the same with 0%MF as it is with 1000%MF. also, according to this calculator-- the odds of getting non-magic items off of trash-mobs is lower the higher your magic find is... so less socketables the more MF i have.

    If this is the case i'd rather stack gold find LOL.

    More magic find does not increase the amount of items. It only increases the chance that when an item drops it becomes magic, rare, set or unique.

    Except for three, charms are always magic. Two of those (anni and torch) are acquired by special events, so the only thing that more magic find increases here is the chance to find Gheeds.

    Well more mf would decrease the chance of white items. That is one of the big down falls of high mf. But statistics say more mf=better.

    But that's 100% unrelated with this thread since there aren't any white charms.

    Re: Magic find useless for charms?

    If I can ask something slightly related, the mode that calc applies to is Lord of Destruction...does that calc also hold true for Classic (given the fact that there are fewer unique/set drops and fewers affixes for rares and magics)?

    If it does not hold, then is there a way to see drop probability for Classic?

    --EDIT

    That German calc has the ability to display for Classic.

    in classic the same principle applies: the more mf the less whites drop, however if u go for quest drops u´ll most likely don´t want any mf, since that would increase the unique and set drop rate and decrease the rare drop rate. except ur hunting sojs or those tri-dura items

    bottom line: the only effect MF will have on charms is increase the likelihood of getting a Gheeds.

    Shouldn't it be the opposite thing?

    Re: Magic find useless for charms?

    One more shot at explaining this.

    The same number of charms will drop no matter what level of magic find you have. "Magic Find" normally increases the drop frequency of Uniques, Sets, Rares and Magic Items. Thus, for polearms, a larger level of magic find means more S/U's, more rares and more blues -but fewer whites and greys.

    All charms are magic except for Gheed's, which is unique. In order to increase the chance of a Gheed's dropping, the probability of other charms dropping must go down. So, uniquely, in the case of charms, Magic Find means you will find slightly fewer magic charms but have a slightly higher chance of getting the Unique charm, Gheed's.
