mmm... about 140 hours for my DH and 40 hours for my Barb... found around 5 legendaries in total... only one was any good... and that was a 284 ARM / 128 STR / Socket Andy... that net me enough gold to give my DH a bit of an upgrade.
99% of the time (i am generalizing here) legendaries are crappy. if you already have a main character and some wealth, shopping for cheap legendaries to level up a 2nd character is easy and effective. However, once you hit Inferno, only the best and properly rolled Legendaries will stay with you.
The only Legendary item I use now was brought from AH... its a dex/ vit /5% dam elemental arrow/1.03 hatred gen/socket Dead Man's Legecy.
WIth the developers buffing Legendaries in the future patch... it will only drive the prices of those items even higher... maybe after that they are worth finding lol.
My main issue with item generation is that the stats varables are so wide it makes a joke out of finding ilevel 60 items. What use is there for a Bow or Quiver to spawn high strength? Do DH use Str? LOL.
Also... as an addendum, I hope they tweak inferno act 1 so only ilevel 60 and above items drop there... finding ilevel 58 - 59 items is annoying when they spawn great mods but its on a crap base.
So I have played over 160 hours of gameplay across two characters, I'm up to act III inferno, and I have never once found a legendary or set item.
I know that making legendaries very rare is good for the AH economy and whatnot, but it has the massive side effect of causing me to be incredibly disheartened and I have pretty much given up playing.
Every day I would log in and do some inferno runs and think "Today! Today is the day I will finally find a legendary item", but it never came. I am sick of doing runs and have gone back to playing LoL.
I enjoy collecting legendary/unique items for the sake of collecting them and having cool items, not necessarily for the stats so I don't care if rares are better than legendaries anyway. You can't collect items when the total is infinite in number (as is with rares).
I feel that something is not right when I go through the whole game without finding one legendary, let alone go through the whole game three and a half times. I hate games that force me to farm, so it's already a compromise that I do it for Diablo, but I just can't do it anymore. I need to be rewarded at incremental stages or I get bored and quit.
I'm not going to use the AH because I hate it and I want to earn my items, not buy them.
Sure, other people have found legendaries, but I haven't, and there's something wrong with that and now my butt hurts.
Almost every legendary and set item suck in this game.
STOP WORRYING ABOUT NOT LOOTING ANY...hell you have a better chance at making gold by NOT getting them.
I have found 28 legendaries and 12 set items. every single fucking one was a peice of living shit. All Ilvl 58+ and all blew complete chunks. That is worse than not finding any imo.
I am pretty sure I salvaged at least 75% of those and sold the rest for like 300-400k each which is stupid when i daily find a rare or 2 to sell for 15m+
