So they buffing old legendary's also ?
Yes and no... Legendary items dropping after the release of patch 1.0.4 will be improved, the legendary items that have dropped before patch 1.0.4 will remain as they are now.
How does this affect those of us who are busy collecting sets for the achievement?
See my post below ..v copied from another thread.
The legendary update looks really good and I am looking forward to legendary items that I can use. Reading through the blog just got more awesome all the way through.
Until, that is, I saw this...
New Set Names - As set bonuses won’t interact between pre-1.0.4 and post-1.0.4 sets, the new Sets will have new names, as well as new individual pieces, to prevent confusion.
Now, I play D3 under the rule of progression = loot only, no GAH no RMAH.
Which was a valid way to play according to Blizzard.
I also similarly get longevity out of achievements (which are otherwise meh) by..
Never remaking games, always (almost) full map clears.
Never going to lower difficulties - do everything on Inferno.
Any rare mobs or events are chance on meet in a full map clear.
And in conjunction with my first point, intend to loot a full set for the 6 piece set achie.
I have looted 6 pieces of Immortal King, of which 3 are the 2H weapon, which means I'm 4/6 completed. I need to loot the chest and belt.
I am VERY concerned about the part I quoted. Are old pieces still going to drop? Will new pieces still count with the old pieces for 6/6? Do I need to start from scratch?
