So, like many people, I played off and on for awhile but came back hard when 2.0 hit. And it was amazing. Every time I played I ran into multiple legendaries on all my characters - like dozens (and I hope people don't think I'm exaggerating). However, since this latest hotfix, everything feels different. In the past two days, playing roughly the exact same amount of time on the exact same difficulty, I have gotten exactly 2 legendaries across 5 level 60 characters with varying degrees of MF. Also, many elite packs have also been dropping one blue item for me as well. Since the hotfix, the game almost feels like it did pre-2.0. Now, I know there will be people who still say they get legendary and set drops left and right, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience as me. Hopefully Blizzard didn't inadvertently (or purposefully) stealth nerf drops and it's just bad RNG and this won't continue into RoS.
You're not the only one. They definitely nerfed drops. If they didn't then I guess my game is bugged. First week of 2.0, i was literally getting dozens of legendaries. Farming core with 4-5 avg an hour, same with Rumford, now IF i'm lucky I get MAX 1-2. Sometimes even 0, and that happens... quite often. If Im lucky I get 2. Where before if I was lucky I would get 2-4 within a min or two. That's excluding the drops I got on avg per hour. And this weren't just 1-2 runs, but 200+ runs. Now I barely get anything. So if bad luck, I guess I'm having 6th day of super bad luck. Cause there's no way I was being lucky before, my friend was also getting same drops. So they either nerfed it or bugged some characters including mine.
It's just bad RNG. For me the god of RNG has been really generous for the past few days.
My main Wizzard change her weapon 4 time ! Always better one each time. (Two of them was today march 23) Always better stats but no socket still... With all that I have found a total of 8 legendaries today (for 4-6 hours of gameplay). Half of Act 2 to end of Act 4.
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
The season is underway. Don't know if I'll make it through.
I think drops have been buggy since the patch came out. I played through the entire game after resetting quests and only 1 mini boss dropped a legendary; the other 4 legendaries dropped from trash mobs.
I think its RNG, but the way I play the game, its more fun to just play the difficulty where you smash faces and let the time flow without thinking about legendary drops. I simply tormented myself going around hoping for a legendary all the time.
RNG gods can do their bad curse on me, but they can not touch my attitude and joy.
