I do have 119% magic find. But that shouldnt count for that much. Blizzard nerfed it i think. Friends of mine get shitloads from Arreat aswell. We only kill elites and loot all chests. T1-2
4 out of 5 drops for me is rings tho. That is something im considering contacting blizzard about. Cant be like this
119% magic find translate to 11.9% increased chance of finding a legendary.
And don't contact Blizzard about RNG like "4 out of 5 drops are rings". I bet they sometimes print those mails and read them to each other when they're having an after work beer. Sure as hell I would. It's RNG... I got 5 two-handed weapons in a row, once, an entire evening of loot full of rubbish. R.N.G.
I totally and completely agree with you. I just felt like commenting, because last night I got 3 rings in a row, within 15 minutes. The first two dropped within 3 minutes of each other, then the last one a little over 10 minutes later.
I think, though, that the game is more aligned with finding maximum density of mobs (that drop loot) and doing that. This run is decent because some of the mobs that drop elite level loot are basically white mobs with lots of health, but they still die quickly.
I think we did this in a group of 4 yesterday (Venaliter was with us), pretty much blowing past everything, for 40~ minutes... 0 legendaries for everyone... I think maybe one of us got one (iirc).
And then the day before I ran like 1+ hour of core runs with Donkington, clearing even elites in seconds, doing tons of runs, and we both got 0 legendaries, he left really frustrated... 5 minutes after he left I got 3 legendary drops and a set plan while farming Whites at the Act 1 Jail (in like 30 minutes)...
So yeah, as I usually say about these "routes" that wield amazing "averages"... R N G
