"Farming Legendary and it works" (Confirmed)

General Discussion
If you run act 3 hell mode and get a 5 stack of NV and play the whole act with the full stack 80% of the time you will get a legendary. I got 3 in 2 today. Had a friend who had never gotten a legendary tr it and he got one.

Now me i had no MF gear on at all just GF, but my friend has 177% MF before the NV buff. He got his a little past the 1/2 mark for the Act

I have other people trying it as well. Today I didn't get on but tomorrow i probably will.

The drops are for level 50 and higher the ring i got sold for 500k very quickly on AH.

So happy farming people! The key is not to loose your 5 stack and you can get that in 20 mins in the first part of the act.

I am giving this farming method away for free because i have friends with more hours in than me and never have gotten a legendary drop.

It's a tried and true method to getting legendary drops.

There is no guarantee you will get one but your chances are 80% better with my method. If you haven't gotten one by cedera you only haev 2 or 3 more elite packsk before Azmo.

If you have MF gear of course you chances go up much better.

Taken from the US forum.

I just tried this! Made 3 runs and got 1 legendary ring lvl 55 the first run + 1 legendary pair of pants the last run. I also used only GF gear (about 160)

These were my first legendary items. I know Hell is crap, but I was able to sell the ring for 5 mils in 20 mins.

EDIT: You don't have to play the whole act 3. Just start from the 5. Quest Machines of War and finish killing Azmodan
Nerf incoming!
Just lucky.. just lucky. Got yesterday 2 legendaries aswell.. in nm act 3 ><.
do you kill the whole act? I mean, going through certain areas where alot of elites are. killing 20-30 elites and than azmodan on act 3...would that be the same?
M.O.A.N time blizz...

by the way M.O.A.N = Mother Of All Nerfs:P
Its about luck, if you farm a3 permanently in inferno. Sometimes you will get 3-4 legendaries in one day and sometimes you wont get it 3-4 days. Btw my friend got 3 legendaries in 4 rare packs. Every pack one legendary. Its all about luck.
It's just luck.. did that multiple times already for my sorcs gear and never had a legendary drop...

Post edited: It takes about 1 hour for me to finish from quest 5 to azmodan
Well i see why this works so well. Act 3 has the highest mob density in the entire game so having a run through the entire act gives you a bazillion small chances to get a legendary.
It's all about luck, on Saturday I got 2 set helms (immortal king and natalya) + legendary wand in one Butcher run, doesn't mean I will always get that.
I heard that if you get 5 Nephalem Valor and you kill stuff in Act IV, you get a good item sometimes.
The day 1.0.3 was released I got a legendary item, then 3 days later I got another! Since I was wearing the same pair of pants when both dropped I can only conclude that my pants influence legendary drop rates. I now wear them whenever I play Diablo 3 for guaranteed Legendary drops! 100% confirmed.
Thanks for the info, now delete this thread and never mention it again :D
i'll give it a try....:)

but like ppl say, its more of a luck factor. Few days ago I got legendary fists from a normal skeleton mob in Festering woods Act 1 Inferno.

I'd recommend you to sell those pants on ebay for tons of money.
Well I have farmed the crap out of Act 1 Inferno (50+ runs) and still no legendaries. This is no pure luck. It would be nice if someone else can confirm this
tried it and found 100 legenderies.
works!
