Underwhelming Legendary Pings/Sound and Fix.

Seriously....slow the fuk down if you have a problem....Good god...it makes a noise, a huge light shines on it...WTF else do you want....

I missed a Legendary just now because I was farming for Leoric's Signet with my DH using Vault/Action Shoot and killed a monster off-screen. I play without sound in a window and listen to audio books and have to stare at the tiny mini-map or I miss them, and I miss them anyway because the map ping is for some inexplicable reason limited to a few seconds.

There needs to be a better notification.

What the hell else do you want? a huge flashing sign across the whole screen "NUB LEGENDARY DROP CHECK EDGE OF SCREEN"

You know, there's a big sign popping up, telling us that a "MASSACRE!" has occurred. Wow! What the hell do we need that for if we could not have a similar pop-up telling us that a Legendary has dropped.

Thank you to the OP for this thread. I had no idea that there were indicators of legendary drops. I have never found a legendary since 1.04.
I only play DH and spiked trap is my primary tool. After 1.05 was released I have been hearing a DING sound that sounds like an item that has successfully sold in the AH , but when I check the AH nothing sold.

So that sound must have been legendaries and I missed them all.

A weakness in the current legendary notification is that an item could drop after I have left the screen due to the monster that dropped it was killed by a spiked trap that was left behind me off the screen.

Let me guess. OP plays a barb and runs past everything.

Yup. He is.

Figures.

Huh? this post makes no sense.

You missed a legendary? How? you obviously didn't miss it because you knew it dropped.

Lol. Exactly. How do you know if you are missing legendaries if you don't see them? Assumptions?

A. I'm clairvoyant
B. I found it by chance long after it dropped

Take a pick

Looping Guile's them song until the legendary/set item is picked up would suffice...

That's the risk you take not even having the game sounds on? If you know it's a problem and you know you are doing something to make it a problem, why don't you fix it yourself and turn on your game sounds?

I have no idea why they can't just have the items appear in your inventory when they drop and do away with ALL of the missed items, and if you are out of room they drop at your characters feet and all the bells and whistles go off...makes sense to me.

Why do we have to pick it up? I never did understand that part.

This. I would say because its due to the game design going back to vanilla wow.

We have gold pickup radius. Why not item pickup? Choose what colours are picked up via tick-boxes. Id rather spend the time chopping monsters up then pickup up stuff.

Whatever...
