Diablo® III

ugh resplendent chests!

I looted a Dead Mans Legacy from a resplendent chest two days ago, and a Storm Crow from a regular chest the day before that. It's totally possible!

This is false. They act like an elite pack in the fact that they guarantee you a rare, but they are not affected by MF. Opening one is equivalent to killing a pack on MP0 with 0MF and 5 valor stacks that do not give you MF.

Just want to point out that you are NOT guaranteed to get a rare from an elite pack. Yes, the vast majority do give you at least 1 rare but not all of them. There have been times I have had a full stack of NV on MP4 and killed a pack or two without getting a rare.


this is either:

a.) a glitch

or

b.) one of the following:

-an elite pack where you thought you killed them all but forgot one. especially easy to do with a 4 group if you're expecting three
-you thought the rare drop came from another monster
-the loot got thrown around oddly, sometimes it doesn't pile up like it should. may have thrown the rare out to the side so it looked like a separate drop
-your stacks ran out and you didn't realize it/you never had 5 yet to begin with and didn't realize it
-your party killed the elite just before you got down there so you didn't register a drop for it

I've gotten one from a small chest, a weapon rack and even a crate. But never a Res chest...

I've never had this happen but I did get a legendary polearm = brimstone from the guy in act 3 who says "Leave me and take this, I have no use for it anymore". Then Blizzard patched the game on Tuesday and I haven't gotten a legendary since.

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. ;)

Heck, I got one from a loose stone in the last two or three weeks.

i've pulled legendaries in the following non-kill ways:

1) from resp chest (2x, one on normal difficulty and one on inferno; one was HC and one was SC)
2) from a log in the weeping hollow (the vile ward my barb is wearing now)
3) from a dead body (a few times...mostly junk that i don't have any longer)

i've pulled a lot of legendaries from combat but only one set item (zuni ring), wish i saw more green!

I have never found one from resplendent chest. In fact normal chest, bones etc are better for me as i have found a few from them

I've found a legendary on a resplendent chest once but I think there was a glitch in the matrix making that possible. :))
What I've also noticed is that those chests don't drop as well as an elite pack; for example an elite can drop up to 4-5 yellows (nvm the blue items and white) while a resplendent chest 2-3 max.
The logical assumption is that the chest was designed to drop a limited amount of loot.

PS: It's a waste of time opening all the chests and cracking all the vases in the game.

It has to be A because it is not any one of the possibilities that you listed. I also know for sure I am not the only one who has experienced this. This leads me to believe that it is not a glitch and that just you and the other poster have just been lucky to get one everytime.

haha yeh thats the chest i always go after, the farmer making puns about his deceased wife. Ive probably opened it about 200+ times, and nothing... just think its strange because they eject out tonnes of loot and I woulda thought by now that I would have gotten one from it... after all like i said in my 1st post ive got over 1000 hrs , and even found legendaries from objects like bones, and many times from normal chests, its just so weird.
