228 legendary items seems too small of a number???
Yup, it's also what I think. Bashiok stated a while back that the items listed on the website were only representing a small part of the whole items but now, 8 months after the items pages were added, we're told that there are in fact only about 11 Legendary more. In 1-2 months, we will only be farming inferno lvl61-63 mobs and there is only like 1 lvl60 Legendary for each piece of gear beside amulets and rings. Sounds like a joke to me.
You both sound new to diablo...
google 'rare diadem' (take a stroll down the shopping lane and compare their prices to unique helms while you are at it, turns out that just because something is 'unique' or now 'legendary' doesn't mean it is the only viable piece or even close to the best [see. rare diadem])
Since legendarys have fixed affixes finding a 'perfect' unique is no longer an option, but finding a perfect rare is. So prepare for legendary gear just being something you equip while you hunt for rares.
