The first day I played since the patch - legendary butchers sickle. Thought to myself awesome I got really lucky =) That was yesterday lol. Today, with 4 stacks of NV and only Plvl 2, just found pus spitter. I'm thinkin yea drop rates are awesome now =P
i think it was luck, the more time you play the more chance u get to drop a legendary, i only got 1 so far since i started player, but people say that A3 is the best farming area in the hole game... Good luck to all!
I found 2 on SC and 2 on HC all in about 40 hours of gaming, next to no MF (maybe 30% at best, idk), I've played about 200 hours total (you can check the total time in my profile, do the math if you care)- only found 1 before patch 1.0.4. Legendary spear (The Threehundredth Spear) got me though A4 inferno with little difficulty, still struggle a bit with ponies. HC char is still alive A2 nightmare- noticed game is better (though easier) with better drops. All in all I think the difficulty is about right now- for those that disagree I'd strongly recommend hardcore before you talk crap. Patch 1.0.4 brought the game more in-line with D2, all in all I still can't understand why the game wasn't released this way in the first place (other than the now blatantly obvious cashgrab). I think rares and legendaries are better balanced now (legendaries were never OP they just have unique abilities- I still think they can gimp a set overall and have no idea why ppl blow as much as they do on them- I'm wearing better rares I bought for 300k than legendaries I've seen on sale for 30m).
TL;DR Well, I'm glad I didn't spend a dime on the RMAH
