Because of my love for rogue classes, I always wanted to make a viable build with Fan of Knives in it. Because of this, I put a lot of effort into getting a good Sash of Knives way back when it gave a large bonus to FoK damage. When they made the change to Sash of Knives, I made sure to safely store mine away, knowing it could come in handy one day.
It looks like that day might be coming in 2.4. Blizz hinted at a melee DH build involving Impale and Fan of Knives bonuses on the Shadow Set and associated legendaries. It seems like my legacy Sash of Knives would make an amazing fit into this build. There's only one issue. The FoK damage isn't capped (it can go up to 50% and mine is at 43%) and my belt isn't ancient. I would love to be able to reforge my belt to get a top tier one when that time comes. My only issue is I'm afraid that if I reforge it, it will turn into the regular Sash of Knives without the FoK damage.
Has anyone reforged a legacy legendary? Did it turn into the current version or stay the same? I know that Stone of Jordan, Nat's Slayer and a bunch of other legendaries were either upgraded or changed slightly. Did anyone keep the older versions and try to reforge them? Any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated.
I think they stated somewhere that you cannot re-roll legacy items. And even if you can, like StarHawk says, it would simply roll new as if it just dropped, and therefore you'd get a new version of the Sash of Knives *if* it was possible to re-roll. Which I think it isn't anyways.
That's a good suggestion. My PTR is a bit bugged right now (says it needs to update but it won't update anything) but I'm definitely going to try it and report back. Someone on Reddit says that reforging doesn't gain you the new abilities/passives but it will lose any of the old specific ones. So essentially I would be trading my belt's FoK damage for just another stat.
