The problems associated with MF Gear include:
- having no control of it in PUG's
- additional grind to acquire it
- it uses valuable inventory space to hold as an extra set of equipment
- It only comes in a set amount of attribute distributions
Now enter Hard Mode 2.0
Q: What is hard mode:
Hard Mode is exactly what it sounds like: A toggle-able option unlocked when your character reaches level 80. It increases the games difficulty while increasing drop quality.
Q: How does it work:
When turned on your attributes are significantly reduced even when down-scaled, in turn your magic find and gold find is significantly increased. This effect is less significant in the open world than it is in an instance.
Q: What about party's:
The mode is only controllable by the party leader and is displayed to every member that "This is Hard Mode!" When turned on it will effect the whole party.
Q: What about my old MF gear:
The MF buff will be removed. you can still use the gear but it will be inferior. You can trade your gear in for fair market value (Determined by TP historical average before being removed) by destroying it in the mystic forge. All MF recipes will be removed from the game, as will be random drops (this includes food).
