Diablo® III

New Legendary Ideas

An old Favorite:

The Cranium Basher! or maybe Gavel of Pain/Steeldriver.

Ilvl 62-63 2h Mighty Weapon

DPS in the range of 1250-1450
Strength in range of 150-300
Vitality in range of 75-150
Critical Hit Damage in range of 75-150
<random stat>
<random stat>
<10-15%> Chance on hit to lower the armor values of target by 25% for 10 seconds, stacks up to 3 times

This weapon would be an ideal weapon for a 2h crit damage bash/HOTA build, as the Hammer can stack a debuff lowering armor, meaning that the weapon with some good RNG can provide a Unique group debuff. It adds flavor to the barb class because when I think barb, I think using a giant hammer to bash my way through the demonic hordes!

The look of the weapon would be the fury of the vanished peak model minus the spikey ends, with the hammer part a black, obsidian like material with a faint purple glow.

Returning from the battlefields of old mount arreat, this mighty hammer is designed to destroy armor...and the bodies inside them.

More things like the firewalkers fire trail.

maul and staff that can compete with a skron.

a diabo with block or lots of dodge.

Personally I would love to see more synergy in items, like the combos I can find in skill sets.
I would also love to see the paragon levels in some gear.

I feel everyone's legendaries are rather boring. Everything listed is constantly developed to revolve around the current system of huge mainstat, huge vita, crit chance, <random> however without the focus of build diversity.

We need new stuff! Stuff not already one that get's rid of tunnel vision.

For example, what about a legendary ring which has a proc effect. This would be... something like everyone who bought d3 is reimbursed their money? If not this, then anyone with a d3 account gets to upgrade to the first of the two expansions for free? You must be wearing this ring in order to upgrade, then you may remove it.

Or better yet, boots which have the proc effect which generates PvP that we were told we would be able to enjoy, along with items WORTH FARMING FOR? Along with at least 3 classes in the first expansion because holy god did Blizzard really screw up D3 (Shapeshifter - Dex/Str, Necro, Druid, etc)

Fun stuff aside

Anyways, we need inspiring legendaries. Without real balance going on how about actual time-based items for the sake of rarity? The game has an internal clock which we know based on the massive AH manipulations months ago.

In the Winter, how about ice-based legendaries? Summer gives us fire based legendaries. Note these would be in the same slot, just focus on different things. The easiest example would be a Wizard source. EVERYONE WANTS A FIRE WIZ. WE KNOW THIS because there are no signature fire skills. In fact I am the only wizard I have seen use meteor before.

In the Summer (or just anytime, that was just an idea) - A source with low damage like the homunculus however it cuts the cost of Meteor down to 3/5 (30 arcane or 21 for Star Pact) while buffing the damage? Due to the Wizard's difficulty in harnessing raw fiery scorching flames, the cost of cold-based spells increases by 200-300%. Even better! CM wizards are nullified because no cold spells could be used! In fact the cold spells turn to fire. So the frozen spell (I play wiz and yet I can't think of the freezing spell haha) turns into scorching the ground for intense damage instead, while meteor ravages the countryside.

This would help deter people from narrowing their Wiz into one of two builds - CM wizard or Archon. LETS GET FIRE GOING. On that note, Blizzard please fix the meteor graphics. It's awful. It shoots down at 2 fps and is a disgusting polygonized ball of matter. Make it actually look awesome, along with the flames/fire.

Source - Sunrock (why did this name hit me? its from somewhere....)
Damage: (30-50) - (40 - 150)
Intel: 250-375
Vita: -(50-200)
APoC: 8-14 (yes, 14. make it special)
Crit Damage - 120-200% (thats right. NO CRIT CHANCE. This is because its a !@#$ing METEOR source which should do more DAMAGE)
Increase Fire skill damage by XX%
Fire Resistance: +80-150
Cold Resistance: -50-120 (minus)
Damage Against Elites - 20-35%
Cold spells cooldown is doubled (or 1.5x) / Cold spells cannot be used (Or even a random 50/50 roll between these two! Awesome, not. Less RNG blizzard. LEARN THIS. LESS RNG. So, one of those two only)

My reasoning - CM wizard is nullified. Elites are moving targets and so very hard to hit with the delay. Everything are moving targets. This will be incredible when two wizards pair up with a freezing / fire wiz. [Promote multiplayer action even with the same class.] As to the crit damage vs fire skill damage... no idea. This isn't a balanced item but a showcase of an idea. If this was paired with the fire hydra, along with the mentioned (not guarenteed I get that) item that would allow for two hydras at the same time maybe rolling for fire based damage is better. For those who don't want hydra, maybe crit is better. So maybe this item can have RNG in this sense - which stat (crit or skill damage). Seriously this makes two viable fire builds - Hydra+Meteor or Massive Crit damage Meteor+ Anything (Arcane torrent for weakening enemies with that awesome rune?)

This because a jumble of ideas as I got excited thinking about it. I'm not writer so I hope you read through it and picked it apart and got the jist. =)

Edit: Actually. Temporal Flux + Arcane Hydra (with the 2 hydra item we might get) + this meteor damage could be incredible. I feel that there is another very viable build since Arcane Hydra is AoE.

A nice set shield for dh would be nice, maybe something along the lines of storm shield or a much better lidless wall. I'd like a storm shield with 300dex and 10% crit, maybe some atk speed.

Make it a set bonus for the calamity. Dmg to elites, dex, spd, some other nice bonus.

Maybe even some sweet new dual wield weapon that also provides shielding aspects?

I think a quiver or shield bonus that gives me another pet would be nice too.
2-3 boars, spiders, bats, or a wolf pack.

    for example:

    Do you think this will be feasible?

    Tell me ,please.
