I reached 2515 magic find today and tested it immediately and results are pathetic, i dont know whats going on with this stat but back in time magic find was working and paying back flux that you invest to dragons. I dont get this game anymore and i know somebody will write “its rng dude” “rng”… Im seriously tired, 2500+ is serious number. Everytime who reads this kind of post says rng and escapes. This stat needs to be fixed all over you cant just say rng.
The problem you have is you slowly got to 2500 and you do not realize the difference. I am sure if you ran a week with 1000 mf then put on 2500 you would see the difference. Also to point out it is not like with 2500 you are all of a sudden going to get 10 stellars a day with 20 radiants to Buy Trove Flux break as it just is not the way it works. With 2500 your average drop rate is a ton better than someone with 500. I know this from experience not guessing.
Everytime I read these threads I feel sick.
Everyone always brings up they got stellar drops with lower magic find, but this information is useless. Magic find improves the frequency of higher drops, so what if someone got a stellar at lower magic find, this isn’t counter evidence or evidence of the utility of magic find.
There are a couple ways to properly analyze it, one would be to record the frequency of s1, s2, …, radiant, and stellar drops for a sample of size n. If larger magic find has an impact, you’d see that the frequency of higher drops will larger. You’d need a large sample size because for rare events like stellar drops, the variance is high. Larger sample size => lower sampling variance of the means => lower standard errors. I can suggest a few ways to do a statistical hypothesis test to show the difference, I can even suggest some regression models to model frequency with a covariate being magic find and use that to test the differences too.
The odds are more on your side. They won’t always be though. Not to be redundant with the thread but RNG is RNG. You could have 10k Magic Find and end up getting squat until the end of the Cheap Trove Flux because of RNG. Until they place a trigger that will force a drop, you are guaranteed nothing. Just as you might not get the halloween event mount even with the 25 chest coming later this week.
No… a larger sample size (more dungeons you do) the frequency of sample drops converges to the theoretical frequency. Only in ridiculous rare situations with someone who has 10k magic find would not get good drops… it’s not any way to support an argument
