this is either:
a.) a glitch
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

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'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.
just found wong khim lau from a res chest.
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.
