Azmodan & legendaries

  • #1
    Does anyone ever get any legendaries from this cheapskate Boss? I have gotten 2 one right after the other one time battling his doormen/doorwomen, (lucky roll on the enemies I guess)

    Azmodan himself just does a lot of hollering and bragging and after his death he gives me crap everytime. Is it even worth it to fight him or just move on to something else?

    Yeah I have got a legendary from him.. it was the grandfather, but still a legendary

    I have. Don't remember what it was exactly but it was a barley decent item (sold for like 3-4 Million).

    Just remember other then the extra loot drops for valour stacks they aren't really that different then normal elite packs. And considering he dies faster then some elite packs....

    I would say it's a form of selection bias. You look at only one sample (Azmodan) and evaluate your magic find drop rate. Let's assume the legendary drop rate is 1 in a 1000, with 300-400 MF it's still below 0.5%. Statistically, you'd have to kill Azmodan more than 200 times to see one legendary. However, there's no guarantee - you could even kill him 500 times without a drop (bad luck), while others get a legendary on first kill (luck). Anyways.

    It's like picking on elite pack on your Alkaizer farm route that is always there (i.e., the first elite pack in keep level 2). Create a tally sheet how often this one drops a legendary. Unless you get "lucky" (hi RNG), you would curse this one elite and possibly after some time even say "the first pack never drops a legendary, I'll skip it". It's all about choosing your sample large enough. If you, however, choose your sample larger (all elite packs in act 3, or, what is more accurate for a typical Alk run: all monsters slain by you in a farming run), this is perceived differently.

    Humans are really really bad in coping with RNG, luck and all these phenomena :-)

    got WD froggy off him yesterday
    low damage roll =(
    i think he is the only boss who gave me legendary EVER when i am starting to think act bosses never drops legendary. I even started to skip bosses because I get more legendaries from from keywardens (4-5 this week alone!)

    Theres no difference between Azmodan or any other boss in terms of loot. Its not like he has negative magic find or less items dropping.
    To answer the question - Yes I've gotten legendaries from him, as well as yellow gloves that sold for 100e. Then again, got the same from trash/chest/corpse.

    Same, but that's all sadly. I don't bother with bosses anymore nowadays.

    Agreed. In fact, with the run I do now I simply start at Azmo's entrance and work backwards. Forget the bosses when you can roll better crap from trash mobs.

    I finally got something from Azmodan, a Madstone a lower end one at that. :D

    I cannot complain however as the area just before you visit him has been very good to me. ^_^
