This theory of ...."not in Vault of assasin" is FALSE.
I have got two legendary items from VotA and are level 10 and level 12.
I never get a legendary if I do not start a complete game from the beggining. With 30 runs only on VotA 0 legendary. 1 complete run in act 2 = 1 legendary .
At least , this is my little test.
I don't know if the ring is in VotA. It's not about the ilvl of any legendary that drops, it's about the ilvl of the rings that drop. The ring will only drop in VotA if other rings of the same level drop. So, if you're not getting blue rings of the same level as the legendary, the legendary won't drop. It really doesn't matter what ilvl drops for other items.
I didn't say that it can't drop there. I was wondering if it is the best place. I have specifically looked at the lvl requirements for all rings that drop in VotA, it's ranging from 11 to 18 I think, though most I see is 16 ( = ilvl 19). Leorics is ilvl 17, so any place that drops both ilvl 16 (level req. 13) and ilvl 19 (level req. 16) rings should have a chance to drop Leorics.
I didn't write down my runs. I'm at 3 legendaries right now. The first two both were The Executioner, and both dropped with me just having started a fresh run of VotA with 4 stacks of NV. That's of course a complete coincidence.
There are exactly three things that can be influenced here:
kill speed (= run speed essentially)
zone (monster level, also affects kill speed)
I just wanted to make sure that with VotA, I'm in a good zone!
The more ppl doing this farming route, the cheaper the low lvl legendaries will be (included the Leoric ring), so as the time goes by, if you are not a VERY lucky b@st*rd, does not worth it.
Yes, this is indeed true. This vid was posted a couple of days back. Went home from work and checked AH(EU) and found only 4 rings available. The next day, (yesterday evening) there were 1 and a half pages of leoric signet. hahaha All the prices for rings that proc'd less than 30% exp had some visible price drops. The good this is that if you will be lucky and get the ring with max exp proc (30%), then you can still sell it for a high price. Yesterday there were only 2 rings available with 30% exp and both were over 300 mil bid price
As the price for the ring keeps falling, I hit my low point. Legendary number 9 I got from VotA is a Legendary ring, but turns out to be Manald Heal.... cry!!!
Yeah, I thought "well, I can't hit the lottery if I don't buy at least a few tickets, uh?" and gave it a try. Did it with an infinite Tempest Rush Monk with maxed movespeed for about 6 hours (spread throughout 3 days), found 6 Legendaries, none of them said ring. I'm done for now
100 mill for that ring? Feels very overpriced! But im gonna give it a go for a couple of hours just to try it out
Perfect Magic Find and Gold Find would probably be amazing for those top-of-the-line farmers (would both find much better items and get a ton of extra gold in runs, plus they can focus 110% on offensive affixes).
And they probably wanna have maxed stats for when PvP comes out. 30% is a crapload of exp bonus (if you get a perfect one).
I wish they had something to help people with multiple characters I'm screwed lol..
