    Ok, Im paragon level 43 (I think; somewhere around there), and the last 2 and a half paragon levels I have found 2 items with a light column

    1. A plan to build a crappy level 58 legendary set, and
    2. Some pants that weren't even good enough to try and sell.

    I hear stories of people finding a legendary every 15minutes, every hour -- yeah, I don't see it. And this is getting really boring....

    RNG. It's random, so it is a roll of the dice each time. Leg. items will drop, or they wont, as the RNG gods decide. Buck up trooper.

    How/where are you farming and on what MP?

    Your white mob to elite ratio is pretty bad 1/27.2, not sure why that is.

    :) paragon 71 - with full mf (400-425 i think) and only one in 3 alk runs gives me a legendary (maybe 2 if lucky - and ofcourse only 1 in 10 legendaryes if worh more then the brimstone). so in order to be rewarded more you must do the following two things - speed up the runs and have more MF (gear and/or plvl)... its rng - but increasing the chances works.

    quick hints:
    - go down to mp0 - act3 if necessary to increase speed
    - see if you cannot keep some of the good items in the stash for higher mp/uber runs and get some %speed and %mf on cheap gear that does not affect the run speed/dps too much (farming gear)
    - put mf on follower - rings go to 16-18 mf each i believe, amulet goes to 46 and main hand for a sorceress also can be a sun keeper (and another staff i forgot the name) with 40+ mf. So A LOT of mf gain on that alone.

    For fast paragon leveling you must know the basis.
    - hellfire ring - pretty easy to grab a crappy one - just make a couple of tomes from keys and watch the general chat. there are plenty of players that will team up in order to get 3 tomes from 3 players for a mp 6-7 run at ubers. Three to six runs like that and you will have your hellfire ring.
    - leoric signet - it got really cheap - 13 million for a 20-22% xp boost right now.
    - head socket - 27-29% xp ruby is quite cheap - and in a mempo of twilight is most common.
    - cain set - just search the official forum for the names - if you really want to go full xp gear.
    - also xp on follower - rings mostly - a hellfire - and if you have the money a signet for the follower as well

    Hmm I do the run pretty fast. I usually don't die, I don't backtrack unless necessary, and I don't vere out of my way to get things, and I only pick up level 62/63 items. I only get about 175k gold each run. I'll by some crappy amulets and rings with MF and slap them on a follower -- thats a good idea.

    Of course, I just did another run and found this. Not bad, it only reduces my damage by 38k. Is it worth anything on the auction house?

  • #8
    No, sorry. your random roll was dex, so makes it pretty much worthless.

    The stories just keep getting worse the more you read into them.

    At the end of the day the game is designed for you to get fail drops and to rely on the auction house/real money auction house for anything.

    Now, you can either play the flipping game, run bots, buy gold or staright use the REAL money auction house to achieve your goal. Which is sad really, but thats the core of D3....Unless of course you can actually farm NON stop for a very long time for pocket change picking up garbage.

    But really, it all about crit chance, crit damage. And thats about it ....Sadly :(

    Those Chantodo wands are nice too bad they are crap. I could never understand how the Source could be so good, (I have one) yet the wand for the set to get the extras is terrible. I had one before it was actually one of the better ones but I dumped it after a few days.

    Wait until you go from paragon 98 to 100 and find one legendary item (that's what happened to me).

    RNG.

    Yeah i went around 6 paragon levels without getting a legendary drop. I thought "something wrong is happening" at first. afterwards, It was kind of fun cause my mate was having some bad luck too so we had a comp to see who would "break the drought first" as we called it. He won.
    May the heroes rise from the pit of despair and the bards sing of the day of death renewed to everlasting
    immortality....awaiting your return to the lands of Sanctuary may peace be with you on this day...your day of birth.

    I've been following a few of the top people on Twitch TV for a while now, guys who are in the 90's. They don't seem to be in much of a hurry to reach 100, maybe this is why?
