Diablo® III

ugh resplendent chests!

Is this normal? 1009 hours with my DH and in that time not once have I found a legendary/set item from a resplendent chest.... I have found one from basically every other source in the game: bosses, elites, trash mobs, once from a pile of skeleton bones, and several times from the normal chests. Is it even possible to get legendaires from resplendent chests?? I'm starting to think its not even worth opening them. Come to think of it i've never even found a rare from it that is worth more than 10mil gold. Its like they are programmed to spew out trash every time, so bad considering nearly everytime I open it with 5 stacks (mainly in the FoM from the farmer while hunting the keywarden)

Yes, it is possible to get legendary/set from resplendent chest.
Rarely happened but possible.

Yeah, so please allow this option be purchasable on RMAH so people who are unlucky as OP can feel better by buying resplendent chests that drop leg/set. Also allow us to purchase unidentify scrolls that can make items back to unidentified so that we can drop them off next to any person the moment they open a chest and pretend that they found something awesome and so that they can feel rewarded.

I remember playing in the 1.05 ptr, on two very short, separate occasions. Each time I opened one resplendent chest, each time I got one Legendary. I was super excited about it.

When 1.05 went live I noticed that there were less resplendent chests spawning. I thought, oh, this is because we can get legendaries from them now.

I still havn't gotten a single one, lol, oh well…

Though I haven't experienced it myself, I've confirmed with developers that it is indeed possible to get a Legendary item from a Resplendent chest. It doesn't mean it's likely, but it's probably a good idea to leave no chest unopened. ;)

Chests should be rewarding, they feel far from it sadly.

I've gotten several legendaries from resplendent chests. One of which was actually pretty good (a DH Mara's Kaleidoscope).

Like in the 1.05 Patch notes when the developers "confirmed' that it was possible to get the rares/champions achievements? (P.S. grateful they finally fixed this in 1.07!)

Magic Find does not benefit Resplendent Chests, Normal Chests, or any object.

This is why they are really bad. It's been almost a year since magic find affected them.

They do not want you to get good items from chests because it isn't fun.

I want to say that one of the recent patches actually put MF back on Resplendent chests. No other chests or breakable receive that bonus though. So yes, Resplendent chests are worth opening.
