I'm sitting at 75-90 MF with food, might go up to 85-100 using turrets to keep a boon up but not tested it yet, and over last week drops seem to have lowered.

Having never equipped any magic find I am sitting on about 7 Gold a full set of exotic gear with 4 mastered crafts. My friend who swears by the stuff becasue he finds decent rares is dirt poor and dies a lot. Obviously my experience won't be the same as everybody else but I don't think magic find helps.

If a champion mob has a 1% chance to drop a rare. It would increase to 2% if you have 100% Magic Find.

my 6 rares through CM Story begs to differ.

100% MF doubles your chance to find the item. It's as simple as that. Now if the chance is incredibly small, like <1%, you will still have a hard time finding it.
