Depends entirely on your gear. If you can blow through a3 stuff (with mf gear) then it is obviously where you should farm.Posted in: Theorycrafting and Analysis

Since blizzard already has game creation logs, it would be fairly safe to assume it is easy to track anyone who exploits this bug.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Once MF swapping "fix" is implemented, it is likely they will revert this back to having chests be affected by mf.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

It's climate in northern europe for SUMMER only. This isn't very conclusive especially since the largest part of "global warming" is affecting the colder seasons more.Posted in: Off-Topic
And greenjoke, since "climate change" is something that has always happened you take all previous data to see if the earth is out of its normal climate change period.
The even more hilarious thing is that the graph, from like 1900+ is above the "cooling" trend line.. further proving nothing EXCEPT that before 1900 we were in a cooling trend.
The key thing to take away though is that according to this study, the tempature (during summer) has been higher in the past 2000 years where the study has also proven was during a cold trend.. but this is all with like a 1 degree Celsius variance.

More specifically, when you put up an item, it saves a time and date. The time you see is the difference of current time and item time, subtracted from 36hrs. So, yes, as previously stated, even if the AH was down 12 hours after putting an item up, the item would continue to lose time.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
In actuality, I don't see this posing a problem, since there is no posting fee.

You lose NV stacks on this idea on the sole action of swapping an item for another that has MF. Get an upgrade, fine! Get an upgrade with MF, fine! Get two upgrades, both with MF within 3 minutes of each other.. well then youre waiting 3 minutes to use one of them. The chances of finding two solid upgrades within 3 minutes of each other, both having magic find on it are miniscule to the point this does not affect anyone except people who plan to swap out gear to gain an added bonus to magic find.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

It, as I stated, is a solution brought on by combining and tweaking #4 and #5. I see where the title is misleading. So yes, their #5 would fall under my solution because of how general and broad their statement is. I have thrown in a clause to the original post to hopefully clear up this misconception as I am unable to edit thread title.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Edit: Thread title is rather misleading in stating that the solution is different than those proposed by blizzard. In fact it 'can' be classified under their #5 solution, however so can millions of theories since they chose such a broad topic and I am proposing an exact solution instead of simply an idea. If someone capable can change the thread to "The Real Solution to Gear Swapping", I feel that would be a more appropriate title.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
This thread is for finding a solution and NOT debating whether a solution is needed or not. Please refrain from the debate of whether something should be done and only focus on creating a solution since Blizzard has already acknowledge this as a problem and is finding a solution.
From all 5 options, which ones are best vary from opinion to opinion, but if the "issue" of gear swapping is to be addressed, I think it best to approach the issue as follows:
The issue is the action of swapping out gear.
The fix must be directly related to swapping out gear for added MF.
Therefore, upon swapping out a single item for one with MF, let us say 'X' will happen.
When an item is swapped with another item that has MF as an affix, 'X' will happen
Now, follow through with instance of when someone would swap out gear.
Most simply, people have been swapping out gear for either
1) To get an added MF/GF bonus
2) To upgrade an existing item
It is illogical to penalize an individual for finding an upgrade, thus, taking the idea posted by a Blue that over time, the rate of finding an upgrade will slowly decrease, we can come to the conclusion that swapping 1 item should not incur penalty AND the duration for which a penalty can be applied should exist for a miniscule amount of time as compared to the chances of finding an upgrade. This brings us to:
The action taken will affect after swapping more than 1 item with MF within a duration of Y minutes.
When an item is swapped with another item that has MF as an affix, X will happen for every item with MF swapped within Y minutes of of the most recent item swap.
This is the core of the proposition, all that is left finding a time and an action. Taking the action from proposition 5 from Blizzard seems the most logical to deter people from swapping gear, as a loss of a NV stack is monumental with comparing a 4 stack and a 5 stack. Thus, our X will be 'loss of 1 NV stack'. This I believe is where the most debate may ensue, however this removes the problem of gear swapping entirely and other clauses within the final proposition make this safe to make.
Last is to find Y. I believe this should be 3-5 minutes. If you're finding more than 2 legit item upgrades constantly within 3-5 minutes that ALL have the magic find affix, well you sir or madam, should go by a lottery ticket. At this point, the number should be derived from the chances of getting 2 upgrades within this Y time that both have magic find as an added affix. I actually believe the timer could be like 10 or even maybe 30 minutes, but that is a little too excessive.
All in all we find ourselves to a final proposition that I believe to be a better and more solid solution to the issue being addressed:
Quote fromWhen an item is swapped with another item that has Magic Find as an affix, you will lose a stack of Nephalem Valor for every item with Magic Find as an affix swapped in within 3-5 minutes of the most recent item swapped
I swap my amulet for one with 35% magic find. I get the aforementioned debuff.
I swap my ring for one with 10% magic find. I lose a stack of NV if I have one.
I continue swapping out my gear 10000 times, each time with some % of magic find. I lose a stack of NV each swap, if I have one.
