So the changes are for the furher quantity or quality? And how it will impact on non unique items like Umos cough lodestone cough

Its more about quality, the rarer base type items have a lot higher chance of dropping in open world instead of just dunc while dunc have drop chance of bases as it should be as per the quality-tier of item, earlier dunc had high chance of droping things like nagi/ancient armor but almost non existent chance of droping things like leather gloves. The drop table r linked in changelog so u can check it out urself.

The more players partied in a game, the more likely an item will drop from every monster, a.k.a. reducing the nodrop.

This is a very old post about D2:LoD, but the concept is pretty relevant (more players in game = more drops. Partied/unpartied affects the drop rate):

Im confused now, so MF increases the item quality - I will get more ancient armors and naginatas? Or does it mean i will get more magic/rare/unique items?

Did we get 1 less max skill level due to "Witch Queen and Mirror Mirror minigames removed"&"optical detector now grants +1 to Maximum Skill Levels (due to Mirror Mirror removal)" so -2 + 1 = -1?
Did legacy chars get update on their charms because "Tweaked some reward stats, reduced some endgame charm flat stats and moved some stats to earlier charms"?
