MF theory may be this is complete total poo, but I think I give it a shot. I have a boner who run mf, at Elderich shenk and pindle, sometime do pits too, but it take too long to run. anyway, what I realise is that item drops are better when it is a uncivilised time, like 6:45 in the morning, which I normally play. in contrast, friday night or saturday morning runs are usually unproductive. which I have a theory that is if there are more people on the server/ b net, there will be less likely to drop good (good as in dropping higher level item and MF % for unique / set get lowered). can anyone explore on this topic?
