Leoric's Signet farming stories

I dunno how you do it MasterJay. Im clocking well in excess of 24 hours farm time. Rocking 375% MF - 0 legendaries. I've run almost every type of run, I've run desolate sands (vault and cave) for a while, I've run pure audience runs for a while, I've run pure sewer runs, I've run pure Oasis runs.

Now I'm running vault for 5 stack, then Sewer --> Ruined Cistern --> Oasis and reset.

The zero legendaries is the bit that is hurting me :p

Yup, for those who only farm this ring, it's enough to make you want to slam your head through your keyboard or monitor. I'll do a few runs daily but can keeps my eyes open in I go back to doing these runs non-stop until the ring drops (if luck is on my side, which it usually isn't).

you want to avoid the desolate sands (vault and cave) for farming, going their for quick 5 stacks maybe but hanging around for a legendary ring if you want ill give u one of the many manalds ive gotten so u can bash your head into a wall from frustration like i have.

ive made a list of places you want to avoid because ive gotten manalds.

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
Ruined Cistern

--------------

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.

That's pretty much all im running Convic, VotA for 5 stack only, then on to Sewers --> Ruine Cistern then the Oasis and reset. Appreciate the resposnse anyway! Good luck to everyone out there :)

i also found out that using your mercenary... sometimes you don't get loot when he gets the Killing blow

Convic, I have never experienced this first hand, nor have I seen anybody else mention this. Of course, loot drops are completely random most of the time; it would be difficult to test. But in my experience - when I have 5 Nephalem Valor, and my merc gets the kill on the last elite, I have always gotten at least 1 rare (or a legendary) 100% of the time.

can you give me the source from that statement?

im not gonna go search through 2 weeks worth of posts to find the source for you.


Like Smealiko, I wish to know more about this. I have personally searched the Battle.Net forums, Reddit r/Diablo, and Reddit r/Diablo3, and I have not found any other posts about not get the loot if your mercenary gets the kill... If this is happening, it is certainly a bug. I would like to know if other players have witnessed it occurring.

Please post a link. Thank you, Convic. And I apologize if there's something I missed.

cant find the source, or i would of linked it.

but i gave up on farming this ring earlier in the day yesterday, the time wasted farming for this ring, such a shame. after getting 2x Poxs and 1x see no evil. and than rare ring after rare ring im good. hopefully the Chinese will farm the crap out and deflate the market on it.

I actually did stop a bit and finally did some A3 now I'll be back at it again lol..too invested now.

Wow not sure how you're not getting legendary, invest in a cheap sun keepers for your paladin, that 5-6% MF might be the difference.

Don't do desolates or pure audience runs.

I found mine in about 2 hours farming oasis. 21% ring, sold on rmah for 75$.

PLvL: 6
MF gear: 301 (just buy the cheapest on the AH, full set for ~50k)
Checkpoint in Vault of the Assassins for quick 5 NV stacks
TP to town, WP to Oasis
Clear Oasis
Log Out, resume game at VoTA checkpoint, rinse repeat.
Takes ~10min for a full run as WD + SpirtWalk + 12%boots

Mob level is too high for leoric's to drop in the dungeons of Oasis, stay out of those. You can enter\clear the cellars

4 legendary items dropped before Leoric's. Each sold for 2$ on RMAH.

Ring did not drop off a champ\elite pack. Dropped off normal Dervish.

Moral: dont run past any mob while farming ring. It can drop from any mob in the Oasis. Kill em all!

All these hours u guys waste farming this ring you could have been farming paragon. Just saying.

Also i wouldnt put it past blizzard to nerf the drop rate just to piss these ring farmers off.

It's like fishing:
You sit in the boat all morning without a single bite… then somebody else cruises in, and his lures are barely in the water before he's caught three rainbow trout in a row.

Day 8... 26 legendaries, many copies no ring - starting the day, hour 34...getting low on food and water but apparently my enchantress offered to conjure some.


Your enchantress seems smarter than mine. We roll up to an elite pack, I instantly kill them all with an acid cloud, and she says "I learned much from that!"
...

"Those fallen peons were 45 levels lower than us, and this is the 30th time we've killed enemies just like them! What could you have possibly learned from that? You dope!!!"

the quest is over, a friend of mine got one off the auction house for 45mil and gave it to me earlier today, time to waste more time gaining levels like a retard :D

Quest is over for me as well, found mine yesterday. For your information, it dropped during the necromancer event, from the elite pack that pops at the end of the quest, don't know if it'll help anyone.

Grab him a 1.0.3 Three Hundredth Spear for 700k, instead.

I don't exactly keep my Templar around for his damage, so I'm happy enough with him using his sad little Legacy Three Hundredth. =)
