MF & Infernal Machine Keys(1)Category: GeneralOctober-17-2012 2:06 PM PDT (2 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
I've read Blizzard's notes on the infernal machine, and realize that each MP provides an extra 10% chance at a key. But there is no mention of Magic Find.

Does anyone know if MF positively effects key drop rates? And please mention where you got your information from :) Thanks!

I just wanted to jump in to clarify that Magic Find does not increase the chance of key drops. Only Monster Power level does so.

does that mean nephalem valor buffs dont do anything either?


A full five stacks of Nephalem Valor is required in order for the keys (and the demonic organs) to drop.

lyrilla can you possibly respond to the Infernal machine blog stating that monster power isnt required to get keys and organs to drop?

is this the case, or was it a mistake in the blog?

thanks in advance if im so lucky...


Monster Power isn't required. At MP0, the drop rate for both the keys and organ pieces is 5%. At MP1, that chance increases to 10%, at MP2 it's 20%, and so on until MP10 (which grants a 100% drop chance for those items).

Does MF matter at all for key and organ drops or just MP?


http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6933833314#3

Do Valor Stacks count towards this? Are they required?

Lylirra, as a PR person you really need to drop that attitude. Stop the "I already answered that" tantrum(you already did that multiple times) and PAY ATTENTION for a change!


Just in general, it's good practice to review all the blue responses in a thread before asking a follow-up question, because your question may have already been answered (and, hey, you might even find out some answers to questions to you didn't even know you had). Linking back to the responses wasn't glib, just a quick way to provide information that had already been shared.

Still, I appreciate the feedback. :)

Obrown asked you two things:
1. Do Valor Stacks count towards this?
You completely missed to answer this one! No, its not the same question as the next one, think about it.

2. Are they required?
For this one the answer is indeed "Yes", and yes you and many other Blizzard representatives stated that. Its actually easier to type 3 letters than looking for the link, copy and pasting down. You are doing it as a tantrum act. You should just answer the question, again, nicely: YOU ARE GETTING PAID FOR THIS.


Both questions were addressed by the response I linked. Since a full five stacks of NV are required in order for the keys and organs pieces to be eligible to drop in the first place, any other stack count you have below that doesn't really matter.

So, NV stacks only "count" towards key and organ drop rates in so far as you need a full five in order for those items to drop at all. From there, you can use Monster Power to boost up your chances, but MP is the only thing that will affect the drop rates of the Infernal Machine components.

Still unclear if the organs scale at the same
rate as the keys with MP/ 5NV or if they are affected by Magic Find and 5NV only


Neither keys nor the demonic organ pieces are affected by Magic Find. Similarly, both the keys and organ pieces share the same NV five-stack requirement and the same drop rates (5% at MP0, 10% at MP1, 20% at MP2, all the way up to 100% at MP10).
