Diablo® III

"Search for similar items" not working.

First off, the technical support ticket setup on battle.net is garbage. The options are very limited. My issue is below.

When I right click and "search for similar items" on a legendary, the stats for the item I did it on are not being propagated into the search. This works just fine on yellows, but not on legendaries. A friend said it worked for him which is why I'm making this post. How do I fix this?

It may change in the future but currently it's working as intended. Legendaries can have different stats/affixes/properties than their normal counterparts and aren't going to be able to use the Search for Similar function right now. I agree with Sinobu, your friend is mistaken.

Hmmm. I'll call him out on it. Thanks for the info.

This may be working as intended for now, but is not what players intended to have. The search for similar items for legendary should display the default statisitics and has random properties to fill up the empty choice.

For Example: The Helm of Command (Legendary Helm)
The Search should display:
- Vitality
- Chance to Block
Then the 4 Random Magic Properties

Yes, the 4 magic properties may be very different the other similar lengardary but they can help players narrow down to the properties they want in this legendary. The players can simply click on the 'X' to remove unwanted property too. This will certainly help players a lot like the intention of search for similar item intention in the first place.
