"25%" buff in Nephalem Rifts.

  • So apparently they've buffed legendary drops by 25% in Rifts. I'm curious as to what this actually means since it's quite ambiguous.

    I'm guessing it's just a multiplier. EG. XYZ had 1% chance to drop, whereas now it's 1.25%.

    If that's the case, that "buff" is clearly just for show more than anything, like, "sorry we nerfed your chests" XD

    Where you read this?

    Thanks for posting the link LittleLucas :-)

    Lylirra posted a clarification on what this buff actually entails, and I will just quote her post here as well for those who don't feel like clicking LittleLucas' link :-)
    So, the 25% bonus to Legendary drops in Nephalem Rifts is multiplicative and will actually stack with the scaling Legendary drop rate bonus in Torment 1-6.

    This means if you're playing through a Rift in Normal-Master, you'll have a 25% bonus to Legendary drops. If you're playing through a Rift in Torment 1, you'll have a 43% bonus to Legendary drops (1.15 * 1.25 = 1.43). If you're playing through a Rift in Torment 2, you'll have a 65% bonus to Legendary drops (1.32* 1.25 = 1.65). And so on.

    So Vaneras, does this mean that the hotfix is live in just the US or is it live in all regions?

    It is live in all regions:
