I've recently over the past maybe 1½ week realised that the drop rate of legendaries are reduced? Can't find anything official on www.diablo3.com but i can surely feel it.
Anyone else noticed this? ( Please note that i am level 100 paragon)
On my way to 100 paragon i did statistics and i have on one day found up to 15 legendaries a day at this point (this was around december.)
Today ive played pretty much all day, both on my 32paragon hardcore WD, my 19Paragon DH softcore and at last also on my 100 paragon, several runs on each character and yet, no legendary. This isnt the first they i experience this.
It can't be me just beeing unlucky, can it? Please let me know if you feel the same, i just find it VERY weird since i can't see the logic of blizzard reducing it again, it will make even more players quit in rage.
Reason why it will make people quit:
At start, legendaries were REALLY rare. It could take up to 30-40k trash kills in between a legendary drop, BUT when you got the drop, it was almost always worth quite a bit!
THEN they increased the drop rate of legendaries / set items around the patch with the hellfire/uber realease and they started dropping really fast ( obviously since they rained into every players inventory) & at this point after a while, u could find many legendaries a day, but not a single one of em beeing worth anything at all, so basicly u just brimstoned it.
NOW i rarely find legendaries, did they reduce the drop chance? if yes WHY? Now the legendaries/set items are WAY down in price and we are back to start, maybe not as many kills before a drop, but quite a bit. And when you get the drop, its worth nothing but a brimstone because people been getting tons of legendary drops over the past months. So why would blizzard reduce the drop rate of legendaries? I dont see the logic part in it? Now people can kill maybe 10k trash before they get a legendary drop that will most likely be a brimstone anyway, so why?
Im sure im not alone on this hinch since a few mates of mine (100paragons) feel the same, that the drop rate has been reduced. :(
Let me know what you think? / Sky Adict ^_^
Ps: But I shall remember your words as I'm lvling higher, if the drop rate decrases there might be something to it,
we are a party od lvl70-85 paragons. We became about 13-15 legs per day in december, each of us. After apx. 15. january we become hardly 2 crappy sets/legs per evening (mostly at the begining of the game, even without NV buffs). And no one wants to play longer than that. We tried to play short games (new game = new ID = other chance to drop theory), long games (whole acts), weak/strong items and low/high dps farming (power level curve theory presented by blizz), max MF / some MF / no MF, singleplayer / full multi, MP1-MP8,..nothing changed the situation.
We can 100% confirm your drop rate experience and we are 100% sure, that the parameters were changed. :(
Playing as a monk, I didn't much appreciate the 5 drops since yesterday, though. All of them were either for wizard only, or intelligence based. Not exactly in line with the 1.0.5 patch intention that more drops should be usable by the class you play...
Most drops i got at lvl 20-40PL there was times when got 40 in like 6h now its 6h for maybe 2 ...
The more i play less i get the higer paragon i get less i get seems kinda bad....
Just like the game, boring. <yawn>
Suit yourself, but in a binomial distribution, whilst most people will be in the middle percentiles, someone unlucky has to be in the 1st percentile and someone lucky has to be in the 100th percentile. What this means is that for every player who complains that their loot drops have completely dried up, there'll be an equal and opposite player for whom loot will appear to be raining down without end.

Thats why this game has failed.
In few days, I will make my 100 paragon 4-times faster than now...
I feel Ive played for nothing that it was fixed all the time to get me to buy stuff. I have never received a legendary or even a valuable item since I have played this game. There is not point looking for loot.
I can no longer recommend this game to friends based on the fact there is nothing to play for any longer, incessant looting will get you nothing.
