Quote from UnresoIvedQuote from BilgeQuote from TatsuyaQuote from UnresoIvedI'm not talking about farming Act 1 with 200 mf vs farming Act 1 with 0 mf. It's about farming Act 1 with 200 mf while farming Act 3 with 0 mf. Since Act 3 requires much higher stats to clear than Act 1, the amount of magic find on your gear will be greatly reduced. Once you're farming Act 3 with less magic find than in Act 1, Act 3 becomes a less effective farming spot. Thus rendering Act 2/3/4 farming less efficient unless a person uses no magic find or has the maximum magic find.
I don't see the problem with this. This is how MF is suppose to be. Of course your going to get less gear if you have less MF.
Actually, you'll get more i61+ rares farming act 1 with 0 MF than farming act 3 with 0 MF (and high dps / surv).
The fact you can get away with stacking a ton of MF in act 1 is jut gravy on top of the biscuit.
The problem with this is that act 4 should provide the highest chance of getting the best items, not act 1.
Exactly. Right now, the game punishes you for not being able to use magic find in Act 3. Instead, I think the game should reward the player for using that kind of gear. If you're not using a high amount of magic find in Act 3, then you're being punished by receiving less drops than you would in Act 1. It should be that you get equal amounts of gear in Act 3 with little/no magic find and then get rewarded for being able to stack magic find on top of those survival stats.
You can pretty much see my previous post. You're complaining because you want a3 farming to be easier? It isn't going to be easier because it is a place that is further along in the game. You earn your way there. It's the entire point of the game to get better gear so you can progress in a more timely fashion. The entire game is based on efficiency. A 25 minute a1 cemetery, plains, leoric manor, agony, warden, butcher run is more EFFICIENT than a 60 minute a3 bridge, tower, cydaea/azmo run. You may get the chance for higher level of drops and you might even get 3 ilvl 63 from a3, but in a1 you'll get 1 ilvl63 and 12 ilvl 61 with 4 ilvl 62 (all random numbers) which means you've got a higher chance of getting better gear. Maybe not an upgrade for you, but an upgrade for somebody, which in turn, makes it so you can afford a better piece of gear for yourself.
