Lately there has been talk about once again changing legendaries and other items in order to filter out some of the crap. By making the items better and lowering the drop rates, the idea in once more being excited when a legendary drops is a nice idea.
But how about something different. Leave Legendaries the way the are now, potentially awesome, but usually not. And add a set of ultra rare, but extremely powerful gear called Mythic gear. Mythic gear is high stat extremely strong gear that is account bound an cannot be used in pvp. One-handed mythics would not roll below 1000dps and could roll up to 1700. two handers would cap at 2400. Stats on armor mythic's would be between 250-450.
I mean that's just whatever numbers, but the idea is that they would be items that you wouldn't find very often. (Maybe 1 in 20 Act 3 clears, for example) But when they do drop and you get the blue beam, you'd be excited. While randomness of stats still might sadden you as you get a 400int shoulder while playing your barb, there is still a much higher chance of getting yourself or and alt something worth equiping.
Probably a stupid idea.
but I just wanted to get it out there.
You should post it on the main forum and get BLUE attention for at least a separate set of rare.
