You're correct! The anniversary buff does not influence the Legendary drop rate from Kadala or Horadric Caches. It's good to keep this in mind as you adventure through Sanctuary over the duration of the anniversary celebration.

I hope everyone is enjoying the buff, killing lots of monsters, and finding tons of loot. Happy anniversary, Diablo community!

I am declaring the buff NSFW (Not safe for work) as I am finding myself tempted to call it a day at the office to go home and play ;)

In all seriousness, it has been extremely fun - thanks for all the hard work to those at Blizzard

why would a legendary DROP rate increase affect things that aren't drops? drop means something that dropped on the ground. gambled items go from kadala right to your inventory.

caches are a gray area, because the item DOES drop on the ground of course, but you originally get it inside the cache, which goes right into your inventory.

You know what would be a fun stat to share? The amount of monsters slain from the start of the Anniversary Buff to the end =p.

Played last night - did a run on a rift and also a run in adventure mode to get a cache doing both on T1.

Results were a 2 handed sword legend drop doing rift run - Crappy sword and during the run in adventure mode got 1 recipe to make a sword. Did not get any thing again in a cache.

Didn't notice anything different with the anniversary buff compared to a non-anniversary buff..this was with around 3 hours of gameplay.

Prob bad luck or something is still not working right. Will try again tonight and hope to have different results.

^This^

I know most people claim they get 2-4 per hour without the buff, but this has defintely NOT been the case for me. I'm lucky if I get 1-2 per hour. With the buff it feels about right, although everything so far has just become another forgotten soul.

Grimiku, any word if there's a chance that the anniversary buff will stay or at least buff the legendary percent by a margin, like let's say 50% instead of the 100% that were seeing now. I think I'm speaking for the majority of the community when I say that the actual drop rate were seeing now its close to perfect/rewarding for the player.

Feel the drop rate at the right spot with the buff, given that most of the drop are pretty useless.

I just think they should leave it in, I was playing for hours yesterday , hours and hours and i got maybe 4 legendary items , none where of use to me and im not very well geared but it was nice actually seeing some for a change because normally i can go hours without seeing one drop.
