#2220476 Confirmed to finally be removing Magic Find from items stats...

Posted ChuyDog08 on 18 July 2013 - 05:26 PM

I am ok with them removing MF. However, when they drop that bomb they need to provide details. It will upset a lot of people.

I have several sets of armor depending on what I am playing. I use a separate set for PVE/Dungeon, WvW, and farming. I have the typical MF farming set with 5 + 1 superior runes with MF. I also have ascended MF trinket set with a MF back piece. I spent countless hours grinding to get my set. I have farmed for t6 mats to craft the pieces I could, transmuted looks from other item (some were limited skins), and used laurels/guild commendations/badges that take time to acquire.

If they are removing MF (Magic Find), they need to provide a lot more details. Will I be refunded for all my time and costs? Will I get refunded the laurels, guild commendations, and badges? I hope they don't expect to do an armor/trinket exchange program as I don't need another set of armor and trinkets. I have that already. I would accept a MF exchange program. You could be allowed to turn in your MF gear and be allowed to have those stats be permanently applied to your account. They could make a quest out of it. At the end you could be dipped in pool that dissolves all your MF gear, but fuses your account with those MF properties.

Another big worry about MF is the poor drop rate of items without it. They need to adjust their loot tables if they only reduce MF to the stats we are getting with AP rewards. You can't count increase of MF with food, banners, bonfires, and boosters. Any person farming with MF gear will already have those active in addition to their gear. We will go from 167% MF pre boost to 5% MF from Ap rewards (if you’re lucky to have that many AP). This is a big decrease. I don't want this to be an argument to if MF works or not. I use it and think it works. If it is a placebo effect, then I want to retain that false sense of chance.

I like where they are going, but when talking about removing something many people use, they need to provide more information.

Hey all! my name is Moody. In gw1 i was in the Rangers Beacon as "alwaysranger", so idk if that ring a bell lol....so coming into gw2, the game was all familiar to me and easy to pick up on when it came to farming. i love the Ranger profession and i understand it extremely well. Anyway,

i'm in the Borlis Pass server..although i do think its quite full, it does get empty at times. especially at night. unfortunately the best way to make gold in this game is zerging at chained dyanmic events. so i wanted to share my solo build. i think we all understand that it is alot harder to earn gold than in the previous game so i try to farm as muc has possible even if i'm alone... so If you want to make fast gold and there is nobody around to help you, i think my build works perfectely.

..i also like using this build when there is a zerg such as Plinx in Orr during the day because my elite skill "entangled" puts an AoE on every single npc which allows me to get more drops.

i will post a detailed guide on this build very soon. i'm just extremely busy at the moment, but i hope the video makes sense and that anyone will be able to use it :P

I get the feeling that there are people on this forum that check underneath their bed at night to see if there are any Nexon employees there.

If you've never checked, how do you know they aren't actually there? ;)
