How does magic find work?
June 28 - Blizzard posted an update to iLvl 61+ drop rates, prompting this question of how magic find affects end-game drops. Blizzard has stated that with 5 stacks of NV a boss will drop "at least 2 rare items" and Inferno act III & IV drop rates are as follows:
| iLvl 61 | 27.1%| | iLvl 62 | 21.7%| | iLvl 63 | 16.3%|
Does MF gear apply directly to these rates? For instance with 100% MF would the drop rates be as follows?
| 0% MF | 100% MF | | iLvl 61 | 27.1%| 54.2%| | iLvl 62 | 21.7%| 43.4%| | iLvl 63 | 16.3%| 32.6%|
Since the total chance for a iLvl 61+ piece of gear now exceeds 100% what gets "pushed off" the table?
Or am I headed in completely the wrong direction - does MF instead work on the "at least 2 rare items" portion of the loot table, where MF increases the chance of additional rare loot drops and doesn't affect the iLvl chance of the loot dropped?
