Some months ago leg plans used to drop everywhere, like 2-3 plans per rift, but i don't know what happened, it's been several months without a single plan, and i'm sure i don't have them all, i know i don't have the helm with block chance affix.

it seems weird that they just stop dropping...

They drop, I found mine in seasons like the same day I hit 70, or 2nd day luckily.

I didn't have issues getting it to drop, but it took like 15 shields to get halfway decent rolls. For some off reason the crap you can get on the shield is all over the place, so unless you are UBER lucky, its going to take quite a few tries to get a decent one...

I thought this was a craft able item.

At least you are afforded that chance to craft...I havent seen a plan of any kind drop in months, it's like blizzard stopped allowing them to drop.

Make sure you aren't making the same mistake I did. I thought for several days that I didn't have this plan because I looked under the "shields" category instead of the "crusader shields" one. :P

Hmm I didn't think about that, but my blacksmith is automatically set to filter by 'highest usable,' but i'll definitely have to look at that to make sure!

Why do you want a piro? i finally crafted an amazing one and farmed up a few build ideas for rolands.

Its just junk :(

I'm hoping what Mortac said is the case, because the Legendary crafting plans generally have a pretty forgiving drop rate. That would be rough streak of bad luck if you never saw one after all that time.

As noted above, Pira Marella is found in the Crusader Shield section of your Blacksmith's recipes instead of the generic Shield category, so it might already be there. Hopefully highlighting this information will benefit some of your fellow Crusaders who might be wondering the same thing. Good luck in your adventures, and with crafting Pira Marella!

... The battle.net site lists it as having a legendary property and _8_ random magic properties. Dare I presume that's an error?

Wraps are supposed to be guaranteed on your first Malthael kill unless I am mistaken.

Except they are not, I suppose you have to be lvl 70 so it drops (but you'll do your first kill in Season much sooner and they didn't drop for me).

Yes that is what I meant. At 70 it's guaranteed.
