1) Is having five stacks of Nephalem Valor better than having high MF gear in terms of drops?
2) Does having Nephalem Valor have any other special effects besides raising MF/GF?
3) Does anyone know the cut offs of MF for each type of drop? ie. >100 for rares to drop, >250 for set items to drop, etc.
I ask because there are certain places I can run super quickly, vs. those that take forever.
Running a certain checkpoint to kill 3 champs with full MF gear (10 minutes)
Running a full quest (Butcher) with no MF gear but getting 5 stacks (30 minutes)
I don't see the advantage of running the second scenario at all vs. the first.
