Diablo® III

i just found 2 Identical items within 5 min

i was doing act3 niferno with my buddy and i found a legendary skorn (two handed axe). we chat a bit talking how garbage this item is etc etc and we ask ourself why they even designed this crappy item. and than BAM like within 5 min of the first one a second one drops. we both laugh.

30 mins later my buddy asks me which of the 2 is the better one, i tell him as far as i know they are both worth the same - A FIERY BRIMSTONE - lol. but i check them for real and they are IDENTICAL IN EVERY STATS...
its a mathematical impossibility... almost... the item can spawn with too many variations. plz explain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If anything legendary items types have the highest chance to roll the same affixes, as more than half of them are usually preset. Granted, it's an incredibly low chance, but still very much there.

I found two sets and two legenderies during a single run of act 1. That's probably my one-in-a-million story.

Were you the guy selling the 5 duped bows (edit: on the AH) a while back?

Add: I saw them on a link and thread.

no
but i did read a post like a week ago where someone mentionned those rare cases have been reported, but no one knows for sure why they occur.

To me, it feels like and i think the items may have been "duped" mistakenly server side when the level was spawned. if drops are calculated and attributed per monster PRIOR to killing monsters.
Both identical items were on the same dungeon

edit: the more i think of it the more it makes sense. it might be too much for the servers to roll items on every single kills as they occur. there would be loot kill lag and such.

I'm suprised no one has said it.

Blizz likes to double things.

Even the game knows legendaries are so crappy you need at least 2.

I actually found 2 Giant Skull Legendary items within 15 minutes of one another, although they where not identical.

for anyone willing to do add up the odds of this occuring if it was truly random: go check the item: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/skorn

same in everything, even bleed chance and bleed dmg. every stat EVERYTHING same item!

I'm a decently popular streamer, hi to my viewers.

Anyway, one day on stream I "duped" gloves. I was crafting about 40 gloves, and after all was done. I looked over the gloves and had a certain pair of tri-fecta gloves twice... and then once more.

Yes, I had the exact same pair of trifecta gloves 3x. Unfortunately, I can't prove it now. One sold in the RMAH, one via trade, and I'm still trying to RMAH one, so I only have one left.

I've heard it happened where there are exactly two, but in my case it was 3. Unfortunately, I didn't save the video when it was recorded.
