[BUG] Reapers Fear (Reapers Wraps) FAQ

Since the only blizzard post about the reapers fear bug is a wrong and misleading CM post in the "Bug" section, here is an FAQ about the Reapers Fear Issue :

What is Reapers Fear ?
Reapers Fear is a legendary crafting material. Its used by the blacksmith to craft the legendary item Reapers Wraps

What is Reapers Wraps ? Is it usefull
Reapers Wraps are legendary bracers. Reapers Wraps follow the boring 4/2 system like every single legendary in this game but they have a unique legendary affix that makes them very good for some classes/builds : Health globes restore 25–30% of your primary resource.
The "8 properties" in game guide is a typo

Cool ! How do i get the plans ?
Its a 100% drop : Malthael's first kill. There is no problem with the plans.

What is the problem then ?
The crafting material "Reapers Fear" can only drop drom Malthael if :

- You are lvl 60+ and its the first time you kill malthael with this character
OR
- You are lvl 60+ and you kill Malthael after a "Quest Reset" (remove all story progress and replay the story mode from act 1)

IF you are in case 1 or 2 you have ~10% chance to get a Reapers Fear along your guaranteed legendary item.

But a CM post said the drop rate was "too low". Can i get it if i farm A LOT without "First Kill" or "Reset Kill"
No. The CM is clueless and this information is misleading. If its not a first kill or reset kill you have 0% chance to get it no matter how hard you try.

Are you telling me that i have to play the whole campain for 3 to 6 hours for a 10% shot ?
Until its fixed. Yes.

Any information about a Fix ?
Its Diablo 3 dude, not Path of Exile.

I got the Reapers Fear* legendary crafting mat on my THIRD kill on Malthael while in adventure mode. Just saying.

I have been killing maltheal for 12 hrs on t1 and still no reapers fear. Killed him over 200 times. Thank you blizzard for misleading information that drop is too low actually it's zero!! I'm so pissed you can't fix so simple thing as drop chance.

How about legendary shield block amounts? and the extremely elusive Ascendent Shield which has a near 0% chance to drop from weapon stands/armor stands.. Also required in crafting said broken shields?

Cr#P... I just spend approx. 4-5 hours doing all the quests again after a reset - and Malth. only dropped a set item, which is useless to me. No wraps what so ever. :(

I've killed Malthael 8 times under the circumstances of case 1 and 2, and still not a single drop.
I refuse to use 3 hours for another chance to get those blasted bracers. It's simply not worth the time.

I did a reset as well over past fews days and still no fear, I am assuming this is not fixed yet?

they fix "exploits" and the runs everyone is doing in an instant but they cant fix a dammed drop rate...

Hey Lylirra,
Is the drop rate on the legendary from Malthael fixed now? or is that one still bugged?

This is not true. My first time through was my Crusader playthrough, from Act 1 all the way through Act 5, to unlock adventure mode. Malthael didn't drop the plans, OR the material. I Didn't get the plans until I went through a second time, on my Demon Hunter, in which case, I got the plans and a set of bracers, but no material.

I get the material 3 times the 3 times I get a "first kill" , reset 2 times plus the first time.

You can do all acts in normal difficulty in 1 hour dude.

You're apparently missing how many people have stated that even on first kills and resets, they still aren't getting their drops.
