I got a rare every 3-5 runs (so every 3-5 minutes)
One thing that made more loot appear to drop was letting the guards turn into snakes...I firmly believe the guard mobs have different levels and loot tables.
I'm not sure I mentioned it (can find a post saying). I stopped farming this..decided to level my DH, and the 1st zone I hit, dropped a goldskin, half way through...
This was my week..Sunday..Farming for Leorics. 100m+ here I come.
Friday: Made 300k selling crappy legendaries, but no ring. Just not worth it any more. I'm gonna level my alt....20 minutes later....WTF a legendary already? I only have 17% MF.....AH for 2.8M...well at least I got something...now I got 3.1mil lol!
I don't see the point in Royal Audience palace-only speed runs. I did that for 30 minutes straight, all I got were !@#$ blues.
21 total hours: 7 legendaries, 12 rare rings, no LS… Today I think I'll try running The Ruins > Alcarnus > Maghda > Oasis. maybe I can get a cultist to drop the ring.

I did that for 30 minutes straight, all I got were !@#$ blues.I'm not sure why it matters to you if you get anything other then the ring. Blues, rares, other legendary items in Normal are useless anyway. For the record I have found legendary items on Royal Audience and a few rares but again, totally irrelevant since I was only searching for the ring. If you really want to see more rares on the run the put on more MF I guess. I just don't see the point of finding them.

Ive found 3x manalds, 1x balance, 1x [Boneshatter], 1x[The Crudest Boots], 1x [Vigilante Belt] tons of rares and magic items i don't pick up. i just think its Random as hell, i farm in between getting bored of getting Plevels , Ive heard outside of the snakes that Lacunis also can drop it but its all hearsay, probably the guy was trying to troll me.. i dont know. i havent given up but a ring does cut your time on grinding in half, only real reason to get one. going to keep farming until i get a 30%,
going to add [Scrimshaw] to the pile of garbage Ive gotten thus far, invested 5x 8 hour days of farming,
to answer your question as to what im farming,
Path to the Oasis/Dahlgur Oassis
The Forgotten Ruins
Sewers of Caldeum
Black Canyon Mines [Deserted cellar] (only if you get the tunnel of the rockworm)
the ruins level 1 & level 2
For those who do not wish to read: these areas you want to avoid farming period.
Ancient Cave Level 1, Level 2 - Kept Getting req Level 18 rings and other items.
Desolate Sands + CotB/VoA - dont do them waste of time. Too many 18+ Rings Load.
Ancient Waterway system - Too many Manalds Fml.

Nice one! gj
I got kinda lucky today too. Up until today, I had 1 legendary drop every 3.5 hours. Then a legendary voodoo mask dropped on the palace steps. 5 min later, found legendary pants in Black Canyon Mines.
I suppose it doesn't... but if I'm going to be grinding for hours before I see a legendary, it's somewhat reassuring to at least have rares dropping consistently. Makes me feel like I'm on the right track, you know?
Now, regardless of how the drop % works, Elites drop way more items than white mobs; that's more chances to be upgraded to a legendary. And there's lvl 18 elite Noxious Guardians, Skeletal Rangers, and Stinging Swarms right there in the sewers just waiting to give us the goods! ... seems kinda silly not to even go down there.
Ok, not yet, beeen runnin vault mostly with 5 stacks. probably done this for 4 hours so far.
oh and ive been doing it with 395 mf
my route is.
find VotA - checkpoint
caldeum sewers - 1 -2 packs
black canyon - 1-3 packs
dalgur oasis. - run towards aquaducts - 2-4 packs
then i head to the VotA and complete my run.
edit: lately ive been just stacking up in the vault then starting that list of places.
pox faults - fart pants
aquila curias - body armor x2
schrimshaw - 1h
bone shatter - 2h
and about 4-5 rare rings :/
ima keep working on my path. so. Vota drops manalds too :/ :(?

edit just did 2 runs and found 4 uniques :/ 2 in ea game.

That's because that particular run is all about speed. Once you set it up correctly, every time you make a new game you start at the part where you are leaving the throne room and heading back to the sewers killing 12 or so mobs of snakes along the way, then rinse and repeat.
Yeah but there are far more efficient runs that include elites, which have guaranteed drops and give you NV stacks. Example: The quest point for Strange Allies starts you immediately in the sewers, which you can clear through to Adria. After getting at least 1 or 2 stacks right there in the sewers you can take the waypoint to Road to Alcarnus and run right into Alcarnus, which is nothing but Signet-capable mobs, including more elites. Then optionally you can go back to Road and Kassim waypoints to check both sides of Stinging Winds for The Ruins, which is the single best place to farm for Signet.
OMG I just found 2 legendary drops in a single run!
Chest Armor: http://img542.imageshack.us/img542/8172/dbllegend02.jpg
I also tracked my rare drops: 27 in last run (25 min), more than 1 rare per minute! which brings me to...
Total hours farmed: 24, Legendaries: 12, Rare rings: 16
Still haven't found the precious, but I think my current run is damn-near perfect, and it covers a variety of locations so I don't get bored (or lose my 5 NV!)
ok... I just found 2 more legendaries within 11 minutes of eachother (that's 6 in the past 4 hours of farming.) I don't know what's going on, but it feels like Blizzard just hit the Wednesday-Morning-Non-Stop-Legendaries button.
EDIT: Sry for double post; I actually thought it might be glitch. Just can't believe my luck :P
