Despite all my kills, got my best legendary "Andariel's Visage" by clicking on a corpse in Act 1 inferno, sold for 5 millions.
The quest is "Sword of the Stranger -> Khazra Den, there are 2 caves in those fields, one is the Khazra Den that follows your quest.
The other is the one I'm talking about: In front of its entrance there is always a corpse that works like any chest, your char starts to chat wondering how that man has died and a pack of toads will come when you click it, I've found my legendary on it.
I don't know if Bosses have more chances to drop legendaries, 3 out of 4 for me didn't come from an elite mob, I had no NV buff nor Magic Find on me.
In my opinion there is an odd system to drop legendaries, because expecially bosses who have 2 guaranteed rares with 5 stacks NV, should have like x10 times more chances to drop than any mob or chest, and despite what the devs say, it does work like D2 for rares, but in a different way for Legendaries and bosses.
I had 2 legendaries drop while leveling - junk lvl 25 axe and an amazing amulet (at work now so don't know the name). It has 7% movement speed and 90ish intellect, and I belive item lvl is 30ish. My lvl 60 wizz still has it equipped.
In preparation for 1.0.3 I started running Butcher with 210% mf unbuffed (285% with NV). Since then (~20 runs) I had 7 legendaries drop. All junk except a decent roll on String of Ears.
I've had bad luck with drops in general, but I'll still contribute my stats for the greater good!
Lifetime Kills - 146,690
Elite Kills - 6078
Legendaries Dropped - 3
(Centurion first, from Hell Halls of Agony Lvl 1 Nightmare norm mob, (terrible stats), Cindercoat second from Arreat Crater Hell norm mob, dreadful stats and useless, Magefist recently from Halls of Agony Lvl 1 again, Norm, with useless stats and from a normal mob).
Total time played of 221 hours across 5 chars. One of each class; Barb 60, Act II Inferno Kulle kill current quest, DH Act II Inferno just started, Monk 58 Act III Hell Siegebreaker down, Wiz 53 Act I Hell Leoric's Manor, WD, Act II NM just started). So far only 2 rare dropped worth keeping and both from Inferno, one Barb and one DH, and both with zero MF on gear and no NV buff..
