Legen...wait for it...dary Drop Rates

  • #61
    played approx 12hrs and got around 5 legends not counting keys and organs
  • #62
    Personally i like the new drop rates:
    Since 1.0.4 i didnt find a single legendary, now after 1.0.5 hit, i got already one legendary and a set item. Both of course rolled such bad stats that they are completely worthless but at least now i feel like i have a chance at eventually finding an item that might either be an improvement for my gear (which is not that good at all) or worth more than 100k gold.
    So i can't say the game got boring because of the patch but the opposite is true: I am finally motivated to farm again, even though i know it will still take a lot of time finding something of worth...

    Dude i got so many egendaries in these last two days i already lost count....
    Well i mostly just did quick runs for keys, all on MP6 or MP7. roughly 11 hours total. Coincidently i made a total of 11 machines.
    All of that with 500%+ MF
    And killed the bosses on the realms at the very least 5 times each.

    Let me try to recap real quick.
    Dead Man Legacy,
    Chantodo WIll,
    Logan Claw
    Sultan of Biinding sand
    Immortal King bigass hammer
    Maximus
    Warmonguer
    2x Lammentation
    Wormwood
    3x Hellrack
    Storm Crow

    Well i guess that is it... but im probably forgeting at least a couple.

    Edit: just remembered, Swamp Land Waders, Gladiator Gauntlets.. there were more im certain.

    Edit 2: Nvm that swap Land i think i got that the day before the patch.

    I'm seeing a lot of people on the official forums saying that "doubling" the drop rate of legendaries was bad because they're finding a lot more than twice as many as they were before the patch.

    But we shouldn't forget that in the higher MP settings not only monsters do drop more items (%-wise, there's an improved chance of a legendary for every enemy, even white mobs) due to the "extra item" chance, but the extra MF from it boosts our MF to lvls we couldn't possibly achieve before.

    If you're farming MP6-7 with 500+ MF and finding a ton of legendaries, things are probably working as intended. Which means you should be able to actually find your own well rolled Immortal King's set, instead of having to use the AH.

    Played for like 3 hours or so the last couple days, and I've found 5 legendaries and 1 set item. So, from my pov, they've been definitely increased. The only mf I have is coming from being level 30 paragon and I'm farming only mp3.

    Btw "wait for it" reminds me of Witch Doctor, Shadow Demon and Zeus' quotes from Dota 2 :D

    The title reminds me of Barney from How I met your mother. But that's probably just me ;)

    Nope its not just you ;)
    He was the one that startet it with: "This night is going to be legen.... wait for it........ DARY!"

    150-200 with MP/NV. And same here - about 6 hours, nothing so far.

    Like I said earlier: if you have better gear and higher paragon level, you have a completely different picture and find lots of legs/sets - just do the math. My friends who are ~20 paragon levels higher also found a lot since the patch. But also, RNG is RNG; I'm having bad luck, they're on a lucky streak.

    I've gotten about 10 or so legendaries/sets since the patch. Which for me is a ridiculous amount tbh. I even found a high LOH Echoing Fury and got a pretty penny for it.

    i've found : 3-4 legendary's and 2 set items the past 3 days, before i could run the same and find NOFING now i actually do find things..
  • #72
    you could throw a couple legendaries for the poor people you know, this is a game after all, no need to be greedy once you got good gear :P


    Thanks ScyberDragon!!! you're awesome!!:D:D

    its higher. I found my first set piece the first day of the patch after never finding one in over 500 hours of play. But it was a crappy Nats Embrace. Also found a cindercoat. And it sucks too

    I think I've found like 15 legendaries and 9 sets so far..

    475 % mf

    since saturday i haven't found any set items and only low lvl legendaries 61 mostly, first 2-3days after patch lots of set items and legendaries, so either i am really unlucky or something is changed even if blizzard says differently, because some of my mates feel the exact same, say rng or whatever, going from lots to nothing for 4days is not rng^^ especially not with the amount of runs i have done since patch

    Yes it is.

    played for 30 mins, not a single legendary drop... this game must be broken.

    since it's totally valid to draw conclusions on small assortments

    Why is MF RnG ? ... RNG should be the stats on the legendary, not finding them.
    Why bother increasing MF from gear, NV, MP if RNG is RNG and it sux ?
    In my opinion MF should be a more reliable stat. Playing for 4 days at 480%+ MF getting no legendaries isn't right !

    Thta is exactly my thought...I want a Str, All Res, Crit Chance Lacuni Prowlers... eventually it will drop. Kinda like it was on D2, o wanted a shako.. kept on killing Mephisto until i got it.

    You wouldn't be saying that if you played for an hour and found 5 legendaries. The RNG is reliable in the long term, you just have to ride out the highs and lows. If they made it deterministic then there would be side effects, like "I just found a legendary, now I know I have no chance to find another one for 2 hours, that sucks", etc.
