That LEGENDARY item.
Good day fellas.

So I have 1 of each of the 4 classes and did a complete playthrough on each of them (veteran difficulty) then I proceeded to max my Engineer to lvl 100 in mapworks and completed that (all veteran difficulty).

Then I made a new engineer HARDCORE character (elite difficulty) and I'm on my 2nd playthrough on that and it's lvl 80 now after completing act 3 for the second time.

Now my problem. After all these playthroughs and whatnot I've NEVER found a single legendary item.

What am I dong wrong? Is normal or casual difficulty any better for drop rates?

What's my error. So many playthroughs on so many characters. Over 6% of the ppl worldwide found a Legendary and yet most of them never played through with all characters... wtf.

Juat what are those items? I may even have one, idk?

Why did not you start the NG+ instead of doing Mapworks for level 100? I was founding legendary items only on NG+ and higher. Maybe that is your problem.

After getting lvl 100 I did a full playthrough on NG+++ also on my HARDCORE LVL 80 engi I'm on playthrough 2 (NG+).

Overall 238 hours played and 0 Legendaries.

Must be real bad luck. I have found 5 Legendaries in fewer hours. The lvl 105 Mapworks maps have accounted for 4 including a lvl 102 Voidsabre. The lvl 99 Old Master Q shield and lvl 88 Four Sided Triangle wand are the only two I have equipped. They are awesome.

I'm playing the standard version so, I will probably never see one then.

I'm playing vanilla. 3 of my Legendaries dropped in NG+++ and NG++++ while the Voidsabre is just weird because I didn't think there was any gear above lvl 100.

Soo.... what am I doing wrong? :(

It is random, so...about the only thing I can think of is I am sure 2 of the Legendaries dropped from exploding jugs. None were Boss drops yet I think they are supposed to be slightly more likely to drop a Legendary. I farm lvl 105 10% magic maps with a Rank 6 passive Treasure Hunter scroll and about +40 in luck buffs but that only marginally increases the chance of sweet drops. So, good luck ;)

Now I'm going to have to log in game, just to look for myself, to see what all I have stored. I generally sell everything. I may have sold one already, not knowing what it was. :(

Luck Donus? I try to keep my luck bonus high, no complaints on loot so far. 1 very sweet Legendary Sord "Blood Feast" level 69. ~50 hours in Normal NG++
Fireb4llz Mar 21, 2013 @ 7:07pm 
So I'm one of the only 6% that found one? sweet! :P and how the **** did you get to Act 3 on Elite without dying!?!
Altair Saosin Mar 21, 2013 @ 11:19pm 
I only found one shortly after starting NG+. I uh... I dunno what to tell ya. Very bad luck, I guess?

Looks to me like your into some bad luck! Maybe you will get 2 in the next dungeon - Karma! :)

I think you’re just in bad luck or the drop rate is extremely low... I've got mine on my first playtrhough (about third act I guess) and never used due the low damage.
