Possible Negative Effects from Overloading MF? Most of us are familiar that MF increases the chances of an item being magical or better. Since my move to SP I've found myself experimenting more to find that ideal balance. Here's my current dilemma. As you go higher and higher, your sets and uniques effectively drop off from diminishing returns, while your magic stays the same. For example, using atma, for 100% MF 71 uniques, 83 set 85 rare 100 magic At say 300% MF: 136 unique 187 set 200 rare 300 Magical As you keep going, magical items increase, but uniques and sets effectively drop off. The trend I feel like I'm seeing is that by increasing MF after a certain point, it appears to be more detrimental, not because of killing speed, but because more items will be magical, thus meaning you need to go through even more blues and yellows to get greens and browns. When you focus on bosses or uniques whose drops are always at least magical, it seems that the diminishing returns formula ends up punishing for loading mf where you consider the ratios of sets/uniques vs rares/magicals. While I know MF is basically supposed to improve the rolls for each item dropped, because of diminishing returns, wouldn't that mean mfers that focus on monsters with guaranteed magical drops actually lessen their chances overall?
