Great info and I've been trying to figure this all out since I started 3 weeks ago.
So if anyone would be so kind as to clear up a few questions for me then?
1: If the item bonuses on gear are applied before the map loads, could I load a mythic 3 map with my max luck/gold/item/etc gear on and then change to my dps gear and the stats will remain the same?
2: The cap still has me confused a bit. So basically my hirling and I only need 300 gold and luck each to cap at mythic three and not even the shop buff can change that? Is there any condition that might warrant having capped gold/luck on my toons naturally without map, shop or shrine boosts? I thought I saw chests and epic maps... Maybe I am reading it wrong.
3: I see crystallized and eternalized is for my main only but does item find works on a hirling?
I apologize if somewhere in this thread these have been cleared up, work Has my head in a math spin.
