I am also confused how the MF works regarding legendaries as I struggle to get any legendary while i hear other players get 1-2 every so often (i.e every hour???). Is MF capped at 300? So if i get NP 5 at MP2 with base MF200 and MF is subsequently 300 is all I need for maximum legendary drop?
Any suggestions welcome in how I could optimize my legendary/rare item drop
MF cap from gear, follower (counts 20%), shrines, paragon is capped at 300.
Add NV5 and monster power => maximum of 625 MF (MP10 NV5 when capped).
1-2 legendaries per hour is a rough AVERAGE if you're MF capped and extremely fast and efficient. "Efficiency" entails a long discussion that you can read in many threads, but essentially you're most efficient on the lowest MP level where you can breeze through mobs and kill everything "almost instantly", i.e., you're not standing for a few seconds and shooting at white mobs. However, it's really just an AVERAGE, which means even extremely efficient farmers have dry spells of many hours without a legendary, and then you might get extremely lucky and get a bunch of legendaries within a few minutes.
With your gear my guess is that MP2 is probably the sweet spot where you're most efficient, but maybe someone who plays DH as a main can specify. Paragon 28 is still quite low. You can compensate by buying MF gear, however, I would recommend to go full DPS and bonus XP. Put a ruby in your helm socket, get a Hellfire Ring and if you have the money a Leoric's Signet (you can also put them on your follower if you don't play in a group). Give your followers amulet, ring, weapon with MF (Grand Vizier on Enchantress, Sunkeeper on Templar plus MF on shield). Try to get to higher paragon levels and you'll find a lot more legendaries. However, even at 60 or 70 you can still have several runs without a legendary - it's really just "an average". Always keep in mind: it's RNG, and RNG can be cruel sometimes.
I have indeed grand vizier and High MF ammy/rings on Enchantress
I still was getting confused what was the cap of 300 accounting for
Thanks again for your suggestions
