New Legendary Ideas

03/10/2013 04:03 PMPosted by Dako
All fun but what's there to create? Every hero needs the same affixes... Just make boots with attack speed, chest with high crit chance etc - all there's to do IMO...


Have you checked my suggestions to counter BiS?

How about legendary gems? Something that would require 1 of each marquee gem and probably other crafting materials to make and the result would be a super awesome legendary gem that gives you the stats of each gem color.

example : So say you put it in your weapon, you'd get LoH, extra dmg, crit dmg, and thorns (poop stat but you get the idea) but if you stick it in your armor you'll get int, dex, vit, and strength.

Also a legendary w/ crushing blow would be nice (says my b/f from across the room)

I don't see many people following the mentality that "Legendaries should inspire builds". Here are some I've thought of.

Witch Doctor

Rathma's Haunted Skull
Legendary Voodoo Mask (Witch Doctor Only)
  • Increases Intelligence by 10-25%
  • +100-250 Vitality
  • +50-75 Resistance to All Elements
  • +200-300 Maximum Mana
  • 1 Open Socket
  • Enemies killed by Spirit Barrage or under the effect of Haunt have a 100% chance to be raised as a Skeleton. Skeletons deal X% weapon damage per hit and fight along your side until death. You can have a maximum of 8 Skeletons.


  • Cosmic Tendrils of Trag'Oul
    Legendary Mojo (Witch Doctor Only)
  • +(65–120)–(90–325) Damage
  • 10-15% Chance to cast Spirit Walk(Un-runed) when struck.
  • Reduces cooldown of Soul Harvest by 10 seconds.
  • Each time you use Soul Harvest, you shift your attunment between the Physical and Spirit realm. In the physical realm you and your pets deal and receive an additional 50% physical damage, but non-physical damage taken is reduced by 30%. In the spirit realm you and your pets deal and receive an additional 50% non-physical damage, but physical damage taken is reduced by 30%. This effect lasts 30 seconds.


  • Monk

    Seiei Enbu
    Legendary Spirit Stone (Monk Only)
  • +100-300 Dexterity
  • +60-80 Resistance to All Elements
  • 1 Open Socket
  • Increases cost of Mystic Ally by 25 Spirit.
  • Two Mystic Allies can be active at once, but each one has a 10 second duration. If Eternal Ally is selected, its chance of being reborn is reduced by 75%.
  • In addition to your selected rune, Mystic Ally will remain bound to the Monk's position, and will mimic any Spirit Generator ability or secondary ability you use for 40% of its listed damage after a slight delay. Secondary abilities include:
  • Lashing Tail Kick
  • Tempest Rush
  • Wave of Light
  • Cyclone Strike
  • Dashing Strike
  • Where my potential will take me, no one knows.

    Oh I'd love to see a legendary dag for wd's that would come with mana reg. Of course it'd need other things to make it truly "legendary" like maybe a random skill stat bonus or something? Right now I feel like my wd weapon choices are limited.

    We need another new set item similar to that of trangouls from Diablo 3.

    The set item provides NEW ability skills, DIFFERENT to the default skills from the skill tree.

    Yes not everyone will have access to these new skill set, but then this is abilities that are very good to have, but none core to play the game, as the current basic stats of the class character you are using is sufficient.

    So to get this new skill set from the gear set if fully equipped, is gained through luck and effort, and would make the game even more fun.

    More info about trangouls can be found here
    http://diablo2.diablowiki.net/Trang-Oul's_Avatar

    The proposed set item similar to it would have

    1. fixed stats within a certain range, and a few random stat affixes.
    2. when you wear the full set, your character graphic becomes different and unique.
    3. you gain access to a new skill set of abilities you can choose from.

    1-2 of the following:
      Increases maximum stacks of Frenzy by 1-2

    Here are some general ideas without the specific stats spelled out:

  • Bow that adds a rocket component to all hatred generating skills (to work with Ballistics)
  • Demon Hunter only offhand dagger that can only be equipped with a 1h xbow and provides large damage bonuses to Impale and Fan of Knives
  • Quiver of Snakes: Witch Doctor only quiver that increases damage of poison skills
  • Wizard only quiver that increases damage of arcane skills
  • Mighty Belt that adds AoE damage component to Threatening Shout and Warcry
  • Armor that increases your fire damage based on your fire resistance (or equivalent for any other element)
  • Shield that adds physical damage (or whatever) based on your thorns stat
  • Giant Shrunken Head: mojo with base damage scaled by your strength (or other class-specific item that scales from an off-stat)
  • Shield that removes conditional activation from Revenge, increases cooldown, blocks reduce cooldown by 1 sec
  • Boots that remove cooldown on Leap but add a fury cost and increase damage so as to be a viable fury spender
  • Fist Weapon that turns Exploding Palm into a spirit generator (so it works with Combination Strike) granting a moderate amount of spirit and adding a moderate cooldown

    I'd like to add a general proposal concerning legendary/set plans.

    seeing as dropped legendaries will be getting buffed depending on monster level, I'd like to suggest that for legendary/set plans, in order to keep them competetive, that the required crafting components could include the equivalent piece of white equipment that the plan is supposed to make.

    However, the catch is that the legendary item would then have all of the white items base stats, as well as any affixes on white items (like inc. damage, % atk spd, or increased defense, like we see now), without affecting the available affix pool for that item. potential 'white' affixes could be created to make not only the item hunt more interesting by creating a need for white items, but that legendary/set crafting now becomes a two step process that could make some very desirable gear. This would also create a new gold sink with a new gambling venue, in which players buy very good 'white' gear with the hopes of creating an equally awesome legendary piece.

    I would really like to see a legendary that has a global effect to increase the number of projectiles for runes/abilities that have multiple projectiles. There are several abilities in the game that have 3 projectiles and the item could make it 5. For example:

    Magic Missile (Split)
    Shock Pulse (base)
    Zombie Charge (Wave of Zombies, Zombie Bears)
    Hungering Arrow (Scatter Shot) - split after pierce
    Bola Shot (Acid Strike)
    Cluster Arrows (Shooting Stars)
    Gernades (base)
    Deadly Reach (Piercing Trident) - number of lines of force
    Ancient Spear (Grappling Hooks)

    How about a legend that removes the move speed cap of 25% so that we an actually take advantage of our gear.

    Shard of a Thousand Winters (1 handed weapon)

    Special Effect: Targets struck by ray of frost are surrounded by a vortex of ice increasing cold damage taken by them and surrounding enemies by 2% per second (accumulative). If the Orb of a Thousand Winters is equiped the damage bonus doubled.

    Orb of a Thousand Winters (offhand)

    Special Effect: Elite enemies killed by Ray of Frost, Blizzard or the Frost Hydra explode freezing and dealing 500% weapon damage to all nearby enemies. If the Shard of a Thousand Winters is equiped the AOE and damage is doubled.

    A very common effect in games is splash damage...and not all classes have it. So maybe something like:

    EMP Shockwave Weapon (non class-specific weapon)
    - Surrounding monsters within a 5 yard radius of primary target takes 10% weapon damage.

    PS, I keep trolling all similar threads about giving me Frozen Orb......PLEASE BLIZZARD! (And I'm not talking about that crappy leg that procs Frozen Orb - I'm talking about real Frozen Orb)

    How about this legendary armor for the DH with this power: -

    Allows your Sentry - Chain of Torrent skill to link other player's Sentry - Chain of Torrent skills.

    And allow the fire chain damage to stack obviously....

    Then we'll have our own fire chain as well.
