Do you still need to kill a certain amount of elite packs to get higher MF?

No, in fact there don't appear to be any MF bonuses for higher difficulty levels either. Pretty sure the thinking is that a player should be able to jump right in and play/farm anywhere they wish. Adventure mode isn't implemented so you'll have to wait until ROS for the ability to use waypoints across all acts, but for now there really aren't any restrictions on where you want to play and when you want to play.

So I played a little last night, in normal mode, lvl 46 Hunter(my highest level), feels like i'm back to good ole Diablo 2 were I can **** shit up and have fun hack and slashing my way, I replaced most of my kit with yellows and 2 oranges in +-1 hour of gameplay last night, almost doubling my DPS, same for the gear on my companion. Not just because of the gear thing but there was something "more fun" about it, also.

I'll probably buy reaper of souls now, GG Blizzard on that one.

Just got back into this game from a 5 month hiatus. Looking for some new ppl to grind some paragon/quest with as most of my /f l is now inactive.
i normally play around 6pm pst until i sleep.
comfortable up to t4, normally run t1/2 solo for efficiency though.

hit me up!

Nope, if you don't enjoy the loot hunt then you won't enjoy the end game play. That's what DII longevity was based on and it seems like they devs might finally be on the same page as veteran DII players.

Well, it's a very different game. I personnally can't stand WoW, so I can't really compare the gameplay.
