Diablo® III

Legendary drop rate reduced?

With one day exception (2 weeks ago, Saturday, got 6 legs in 3 hours), I can also confirm that drop rates has been decreased. Yesterday, in 6 hours playing at MF between 300 and 450, I got 1 leg, a frostburn, of course. I am very disappointed in this...

I do think the drop rates decrease while the PTR is online, this is what happened in the past every time. They will increase after the update. So use this time to hellfire ring farming keys, and to fast level other chars on MP0. This is what I do. I will be grinding after the patch.

from time to time I get the same impression.
a lot of runs I get nothing. a lot of runs I get a few rares and a lot of elites only drops one rare.
then, one day I make a run that gives me 4 or 5 legendaries (mostly crap).
then, again famine for several days.
and this cycle repeats over and over.

edit: MP0-3 with my plvl90 WD with almost 400%MF at NV5.

I have had lots of Legendary drops but never a set item. I normally get one Legendary drop per day, however over the last few days nothing....RNG

Funny... I think around 30% of the legendary drops I get are set items. one day - as far as I remember, six weeks ago - all the 5 legendaries I got in that day were set items.

damn RNG :P

Not only for your elite Paragon Characters, but for under-60s as well.. Rare items drop more than rare. :-)

It is ok for legendaries to be very rare. It is not ok that once they drop, they have very high chance to be crap. In most cases legendaries will be crap. Due to how rng/affixes work it is very possible you will never have a legendary drop that you could use on your character.

It can't be me just beeing unlucky, can it?


Yes, it can. That's the nature of RNG.

Pretty much this... Bad luck is bad :-(

If we were to change the droprates, we would first make an announcement about it - just like we have done in the past whenever there we made changes of this nature.

First of all, love the meme. Did you make that?

Second of all, have you noticed all those conspiracy theory threads there has been the last couple of months?
- A lot of people won't believe you when you say that you would make an announcement before nerfing something :-P

I played for like 3 hrs yesterday(HC) and found 4 legendaries (2 set item, 3 legendaries in same run) with 169% mf with buff. Before that I got 1 legendary in 3-4 act 3runs. RNG all the way.

Yesterday I found 6 legendaries. In less than 3hours of gameplay. (MF around 200).

Stop these kinds of threads already.

I did indeed. I think Bad Luck Brian is the perfect person to illustrate the nature of RNG ;-)

I have noticed those threads indeed, and I have also noticed the replies in those very threads from people who have had good luck with their drops. :-)
