I also had a Manajuma's Carving Knife (also crappy) drop from a goblin with about half it's health left (though a few months and a couple of patches ago), so I would say that legendaries can drop from anything that can drop items.

02/22/2013 01:34 AMPosted by Svodnikthis 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
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.

02/22/2013 09:45 AMPosted by pigeonspankif it was any of the other possibilities you wouldn't have realized it...that's the entire point.
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 [i]likely[/i], but it's probably a good idea to leave no chest unopened. ;)
02/22/2013 02:16 PMPosted by btbsauli got a legendary from the dying soldier in the fields. of course it was terrible, but that was the one thing i really wanted to accomplish before i uninstalled this game and drank away even the rancid memory of it.
