    I just read a topic discussing Legendary items and I just thought I'd have some fun, toss up a poll. Given the low % drop rate of legendaries, and the extremely high Diablo community population, all the hours and leveling and hardcore'ing etc.. how long do you think until Diablo 3 inevitably spits out a nice pretty legendary? :)

    Millions of people playing. this will crush the low % drop rate.

    jay wilson said he got one with 50h in the internal testing. Think 2 million ppl playing on launch day...
  • #4
    before eu/us launch
  • #5
    You should change this to 'How long until your first legendary drops' because millions of people playing on day one, there will be hundreds, if not thousands of legendaries drop.

    I didn't think it would be that high. Plus, I don't care when people think "their" legendary will drop - people who play far less than others would obviously respond 1+month, I was curious when the community thought that the community as a whole would see a legendary.

    At least 1 player out of the ~2 million playing will get a legendary from a barrel before they even get to the SK.

    You might get a legendary on the 1st day, but it will probably take longer. Unless you mean one day played.

    That's the point of a poll, to see how diverse the community is. And there are bound to be legendaries dropping before SK is killed by the majority. Hell I wouldn't be at all surprised if some one had a legendary drop from the first zombie.

    I hope there aren't thousands of legendary drops the first day. That would suck.
  • #13
    I say with in the first 12 hours you will see a legendary drop
  • #14
    Do you mean for each of us or in the game in general? many legendaries will drop the first day in general, but for each of us it will depends a lot on luck ;)

    For me.... i will probably see one within a week of the release.
  • #15
    please keep in mind that "legendary" is the new name for uniques or if you did never play D2 compare them to epics. there are a ton of <lvl20 legendarys, which means the first legendary in release will probably drop within 1h after the asia launch.
  • #16
    Lets see, D3 breaking Pre order records on amazon... and there are legendaries for almost every tier... prolly world wide im guessing thousands a day... what is the point of this thread?
  • #17
    I meant to vote week 1. The playerbase is huge, even if they got the droprate right. It could still happen first couple of days :)

    Day one. With the amount of people that are going to be playing, the amount those people are going to be playing, and the fact that there are multiple legendaries under level 20, it's very probable that one will drop somewhere.
