15-20 now, and the results were pretty consistent. a lot more with 200~% with much better results. I'm not saying this is scientifically proven by any means, and I'm not willing to put in the amount of work and dedication for it, as I said, this is just "my feeling"
I have found that MF is a balance between kill speed / damage and MF value. You have to get the right balance. You can tell by the color left on the ground. If you are getting mostly rare drops mixed with several uniques, you are in the sweet spot. There will be small amounts of magics and nearly no whites. Once in the sweet spot, there will be a ton of set drops and several Sacred Uniques. My problem is that I keep increasing my damage, which is upsetting my MF balance. I am back to nearly all blue and white drops again. I have never believed that you need more than 2-3 hundred MF to be effective, but the difference of 10 points either + or - can make a big difference.
I have had a bowzon who didn't need hardly any MF at all and was raking in the sets and SUs. Anyways, I have as yet to find my specific gear items, but I am plugging away. I have done DC and Faust now about 35-40 times and still no joy.
Edit: I just discovered Labyrinth totems! Seems to be much better drops now. I am up to level 10 but still haven't found my specific SSUs.
