Speaking of new ban waves I wonder if one is coming tomorrow during the maintenance mode? It would be nice because then semi-serious players like me would have a fighting chance to get a little higher on the leaderboard vs being pushed down or completely off thanks to cheaters like Chainer. 31-32 days into season 12. Okay, depending on the math you use that's about 744 hours so far for season 12. If you total the time played on Chainer's Barb, Monk, and Crusader it's 712 hours.
My claim to fame this season with my Barb was to do a 96 a week or so ago. I think that landed me around 984. It's hardly worthy of bragging, but I have never been on the NA leaderboard, so it was a nice, brief moment in the sun. But, where would it have been without all the Chainers pushing everyone down? Oh, well. I wish Blizzard would take a harder stance.

On average. one in ten items is ancient, so when using 3105 bounty mats for re-rolling you should've gotten (on average) 62.1 ancients. If what you say is true you're really really unlucky. Is it impossible though? No. We don't know the exact primal droprate but it's probably something like one in 200 or 250, so not getting a primal is also slightly unlucky but not at all impossible; out of 20 people who spend 3k bounty mats one is expected to not get a primal. So you were just the unlucky 20th person here. Not unreasonable at all.
Regarding ancient droprates we could speculate if they're higher or lower this patch; I have my own opinion here but to be honest, this belongs into the RNG thread. I'll be monitoring this thread here but for now it looks like there's not much constructive talk going on.
In an attempt to be constructive, I have to say, using bounty mats to re-roll a Karlei's Point is... the worst possible use of bounty mats. Karlei's Point is an exceptional item for one specific reason: it's by far the easiest item to acquire through the "upgrade rare" recipe as there's only two daggers a DH can get. As bounty mats are far more precious (at least to me) than "normal" mats, I would use the upgrade rare recipe in an attempt to get a better Karlei's Point. I know there's no mathematical equation for which is better; it depends on what you have available. But that's my suggestion for anyone trying to get a better dagger.
But at the end of the day it's all RNG and there's NEVER a guarantee to get any item.

No, actually, quite the opposite. A couple of days ago I rerolled a Dead Man's Legacy in the cube and it gave me an ancient item 6 times in a row. They all sucked, but yeah.
On a slightly related note has anyone else noticed this patch appears to have lower rates of proccing Ancients using the cube to either upgrade to legendary or reroll legendary?
For the former im seeing about 1 in 15 at best and the latter seems broken at best - I used 350 bounty mats to get a single ancient Yangs, (70 rerolls) and a further 250 (50 rerolls) got me just 1 more item as Ancient.

As I see it, paragon is where it went off the rails. Oh I understand why and considering the state of the game before paragon it wasnt a particuar bad move. But it is all the game ever is now, buffing sets/builds pushes the GR, but it is still very much a paragon game. The free set, killed most of the T levels aswell as what little use blues and yellows had left (were never a real factor like in D2), it would be better now if lvl 70 blues and yellows just dropped as materials. And as the builds are super item depended, hearing that legendary sound, isnt all that trilling, you skim the item type and might not even bother picking it up, especially if you are pushing GR.
Oh and dont get me started on the Ancient+ drops... by the time Diablo 4 is on the horizon, we will have items of the Ancient-Primal-Super-Monkey-Power-Ultra, which is a super lazy way of doing it.
I miss the excitement of every item that drops. Not too long ago, I went through D1(HD) and D2 (modded) and I enjoyed it immensely and I just wish I could have that feeling with Diablo 3's mechanics and grafics.

The chance of getting more legendary items does increase the higher the grift. However that does not affect the quality of them as someone said above.
The way to get those perfect items is putting in a lot of time and hoping RNG is on your side. Bounties also help. You get bounty mats and reroll an item until you get it with the desired stats.
When playing with a group of players there is also the added ability to group share and gain items other people may not need also helps.
Personally I finished the season with 1 usable primal, and full ancient gear with maybe 2-3 pieces not perfectly rolled. It's all luck.
