I was curious as to if bosses actually have a chance to drop legendaries or not. Ive often wondered this, and never really seem to remember anyone mentioning getting a legendary/set item from a boss. So have any of you actually had this happen or know if its possible?


I have Keywardens drop more Legs than Act Bosses... And whenever a Leg drop from one of the Keywardens, the Key doesn't drop... Maybe it's just coincident for me.


Same. I actually had 2 set items drop and no key @ mp7. It was sort of bitter sweet, since I had to do another run to get the key :P

Has to be possible, it happenned once to me and I don't think it's a bug. What would add a dimension to this game is if each boss has something like the loot tables in D2LoD. Even it is a very small chance, a player can abosultely count on the possiblity of each boss dropping a specific set of lengendary items. It would bring a purpose to finishing off a stack of 5 NV stacks, before you stop playing or start a new stack of 5.

Nah, the post he quoted was whining off topic too. I get fed up reading stuff like that too.

I've had quite a handful of legendary items drop off of bosses (last one was set item Manajuma dagger). Bosses are in my runs because similar to D2's "treasure classes", in D3, bosses drop a more wide variety of loot, all that the same time. Their legendary pool is larger due to it, however you might get lucky when the system selects a 63 or 62 to roll legendary. Keywardens also have a large pool of items that drop, not as much as a boss, but more than a rare/elite.

I'm liking to kill keywardens to finish my cycle of gameplay because they are quicker to finish than bosses. Whether I call it a nite or decide to start over and collect another 5NV. I would be compelled to do "the" act boss if I knew they had a better chance at dropping a better lendary or even better chances to drop much better items in general.

As it is now, the dance with the Butcher, Belial, Azomodan or Diablow is by far "repetitious".

I have received legendaries from just about everyone, but with 12,500 delete kills, I still have never received a single green item.

I would also like a double beam once too.

While I've not been lucky enough to experience it firsthand, Diablo III bosses do indeed have a chance to drop Legendaries and Set items. :)


then maybe the way drops work should be changed...you think?

Anyone else had a double leg from any keywarden not including the key itself?

The reason you've never heard anyone mention it is because, well, why would you kill a boss? They normally take quite a while (partially due to cinis) and don't seem to have any better drop rate than an elite.

And key warden legs? Yes, I got a key and a wondrous deflector PLAN at the same time. Not gonna lie, pretty sure key wardens have better drop rate than anything in the game, except perhaps diablo. (When I say drop rate I mean number of things dropped, not the likelyhood that any one of them will be a leg.)
