guaranteed legendary?

As of patch 2.0.1 the first time you kill a major boss (Butcher, Belial, Azmodan, and Diablo) you're guaranteed to find a Legendary item, but only for characters below level 60. Characters who killed these bosses prior to patch 2.0.1 will still get their guaranteed Legendary the first time they kill one after the patch, but only if they are level 59 or below.

Also, some of you may notice an option in the Game Settings tab called Reset Quests (just under the Change option for selecting your Campaign quest). I should point out that you do not need to use the Reset Quest option in order to be eligible for the guaranteed Legendary for a first time boss kill.

Also, there's no need to reset your quest in order to get these Legendary items!

Not intended, and it is on their radar.

And I think it will probably get fixed. In fact, I don't see how it won't get fixed before RoS hits.

So I guess I should take my lvl 58 monk from pre patch and try to kill each act boss without hitting lvl 60? Challenge accepted.

Does this game not support Mac? Yes IT Does!! There r even mac sections on the forum!!! Don't advertise that your game will run on Mac's then release a broken game. i wouldn't have even bought the game if they didn't promote that you could play it on my Mac... The issue is not if mac's r ideal for gaming the issue is that they release a game that crashes everytime u try to do anything (try to open ah crashes, try to join pubilc game crashes, try to reset quests crashes) So what did I pay for a completly broken game, thats bull@#$%!!!

I'm willing to bet it will get fixed before RoS. Right now running the entire campaign for a level 60 legendary seems like a waste of time.

Doing the quest fresh after restart gives your increased drop rate back, no guarantee. So either blow through the quest-lines at an hour an act with a group, or farm a good spot.

The Skeleton King isn't even an Act Boss.

He's the Beta/Demo boss lol.

I don't see the point of the reset quest button at 60 without something similar to a guaranteed legendary off SK. Even with the guaranteed legendary off SK it doesn't seem worth it. Should probably leave it in or get rid of reset quest.

Right, resetting quests should give you a guaranteed legendary, no matter which act or boss.

Gotta agree with this. When I heard sk had a guaranteed legendary drop on first kill I thought it was a nice incentive to do story mode. I see they increased quest xp so it seems you wanted quest mode to be somewhat viable compared to adventure mode.

Why not have diablo drop a guaranteed legendary first kill on a reset? Even if you ran through the story on the easiest difficulty setting it would take you, what 90 minutes? to get to diablo. Who would it hurt to have a guaranteed legendary boa drop every 2 hours? That would be WAAAAAY less efficient than any normal farming method. And instead would just be a nice incentive if you wanted to do story mode for a change or needed to rush a friend through the game.
