Have to agree that the old feeling of MF is going down the drain.
Also, from the interview:
We are essentially asking them to trade current power for future power and that is not an uninteresting choice, but is also not a very fun choice. You want to be powerful now, you don’t want to have to wait for power.
Promoting instant gratification ftw.
uh where's the instant gratification in having to make 100 level to obtain the same thing? It is not like that now you have to trash your entire MF set immediately, because devs suddenly "Here take this 300% magic find" you just slowly get rid of it (you can also pass it to different characters) in favour of more combat oriented pieces.
I do think that it is kind of clever actually, instead of saying "we're taking away MF on Gear" they have basically created a system that transitioned the "need" for it on the gear away from it, in a seameless way.
I do kinda hate the current MF system cause I have to nerf my character in order to get the better gear, but in the end is gear I do not use since I need the MF or I won't drop it. But when I drop it I do not use it! it's kinda of a vicious circle.
And swapping is horribly tedious, however it is also necessary at this stage.
The new system does not trivialize the current MF gear, instead it make you, while you level, needing less of it so that you can focus your character on combat stats.
I do not honestly see all the fuss some are making over this.
