How work Elf boots that give% to magic find work?

Post by Yennefer »

there is no difference in which boots you play, I already checked 20 times, I have 6 lvl elf boots, the same amount of bags fall, no difference. 37.5% magic find, and no difference.

Yes, I’ve noticed the same thing when I wore the boots level five. No difference in quality- never or extremely rare do epics drop.

The same problem happens in one day 3 epic things will fall out, and now for the second day in a row nothing falls

If only there was a little difference, a lot more gold or rare things would fall out, but nothing of the kind was noticed. :|

Found the answer in another topic ////////

Magic Find statistic boosts chance of getting higher rarity of an item. It does not influence frequency of items' drops. Also it does not affect gold drops. For example: if game decided that an item should be dropped then we look at probabilities of dropping an item per rarity. For easier calculations let's assume:
10% to get epic, 20% to get rare, 70% to get common.
Then we apply Magic Find - let's say you have 10% of Magic Find - so your actual probabilities are:
11% to get epic, 22% to get rare, 67% to get common.
Then we draw weighted random rarity and we drop item.

At the rate of drops of Epics, it’s not worth wearing lower speed elf boots since nothing ever falls out that’s purple.
Lower speed means more farming time. At least increase the movement speed of elf boots so they are worth equipping 👍

Hi, I didn't understand what you meant

Well, not exactly that. Not much faster than other boots. But the truth is that the faster (and stronger) the more monsters you kill, well, the chance is probably higher to get an epic. But this is not accurate. I don’t understand the calculation of the system, whether some kind of monster is charged with an epic, or the system decides when to give this epic to someone.

I love watching my friends join after two hours of me playing and they instantly get an epic :(

Yeah that's really a show stopper or game killer.
I also bought a lot of parts for Elf boots...and i'm also very disappointed.
The purple loots are WAY to rare, and the gold rewards are WAY to less.
And: If you find a blue item...wow...but...you cant use it...they are way to weak and not worth gold!

Would be not so bad, if the plot would not be this boring as it is, if you have played this for a week ore more.
Really really nice game, but...see above...

I will not spend hours and days and weeks for NOTHING. Better time spent by playing another game.
