Diablo® III

New Legendary Ideas

I'd be keen to hear more Legendary ideas from you guys, as well as opinions on the suggestions that other players have already made.

Let's get creative all up in here! :)


im not a developer though, that's blizzards job, i can give feedback though to tell you how great or bad something is, or how to do something differently, but specifically giving you ideas i think should be left to the people who are being hired to do so, am i wrong?

    Dunno about the values, I'm not a game designer. So I'll just leave them blank. Most of these parody something that exists.

    Fist of Suns - (Fist)
    x% Add Fire Damage
    x% Add Ice Damage
    x% Add Lightning Damage
    x% Add Poison Damage
    x% Add Elemental Damage

    Joke items:

    Fire Poker - (1h sword)
    x% chance to Blind target
    x% chance to cause Confusion

    Moo Moo Cheese - (ring)
    (unique)
    (lots of sockets)
    (vulnerable to fire dmg)
    Tooltip - "One mans food is another mans loot"

    Had some other ideas but they were too silly.

    This could be a fun quest item that might encourage people to make the Infernal Staff of Herding. It could have an ability like the wand that laughs at you when you die; maybe it would neigh any time you kill an elite!

    Pwnie Stick

    850 - 1400 DPS

    + 175 - 300 Strength
    + 12% Movement Speed
    15% Chance to summon a cloud that will attack your enemies
    50% Magic Find
    50% Gold Find
    + 2 Random Properties
    Neigh! Whinny whinny!

    Deathquake
    Legendary 2h Mighty weapon

    1200-1500 dps
    1.0 attacks per second

    -[whatever the +damage stats are]

    - +250-350 Strength

    -no cooldown on earthquake but reduces to 500% weapon damage over 8 seconds (they can stack)

    - increased crit chance by 2-5% //weapons don't have crit chance right?

    1 of the following:unique properties
    -increased radius on earthquake by 6-12 yards
    -reduced cost of earthquake by 10-15
    -increased damage of earthqake by 5-10% (or rather 25-50% weapon damage)

    1 of the following properties
    -increases fury amount by 10-20 //or however that should be worded
    -increased fury generation by 2-4
    -5-8% life steal

    - 1 empty socket

    The one thing that may be overpowered with this would be The Mountain's Call rune, which eliminates the fury cost and allows it to be spammed; Earthquake is useless the way it is as a 2 minute cooldown: it's damage has never been updated, since rend has been increased to do 700% weapon damage over 5 seconds.

    Meteor Swarm
    Wizard Source

    -[+damage modifier]

    - + 200-300 Intelligence

    -half's the arcane power cost of meteor
    -increases the number of meteors summoned from the meteor shower rune by 1-3
    -gives each meteor a +1-3 second to crater (gives meteor shower crater damage if it doesn't already) //meteor crater damage stacks right?

    1 of the following unique properties
    -increases the radius on the meteor impact by 3-6
    -increases the radius on the meteor crater by 3-6

    1 of the following unique properties
    -increases crater (dot) damage by 10-20%
    -increases impact damage by 5-10%

    Probably a bit biased towards meteor shower, but star pact is practically the only rune used. Still benefits the other runes as well.

    These are two moves I loved back in the beta, with skill reveals. Earthquake was useful in early game, now its crap. I liked meteor shower, and was going to base a build on spectral blades and prodigy thinking each hit from spectral blades would give 4 arcane power (3 attacks, so 12 per enemy) leading to lots of meteors; this would bring truth towards this thought.

    Edit: forgot strength and intelligence respectively

    Hypnotists Handguards
    Legendary Gloves

    One of the following 3 stats
    +130-160 Strength
    +130-160 Agility
    +130-160 Dexterity
    +Attack Speed increased by 8-12%
    +Critical Hit Damage increased by 35-40%
    +20-30 Resistance to all Elements
    +1 Random attributes
    +1-4% Chance to hypnotize a monster when struck

    Hypnotize turns the mob friendly and lets it fight for you, while it loses 3% health every second.
    Limited 3 monsters.

    The important thing to note is that a rare should be able to blow these out of the water with a higher crit damage roll, higher all res roll, vita roll and a better main stat roll. The hypnotize might be a bit overpowered for higher monster powers, but the numbers are just there for suggestion.

    I do like the idea of new legendaries but considering that there are more than 200 legendaries already in the game, shouldn't we give feedback on how to retweak those?

    Also, on a side note, I feel like giving an internal cooldown for an item effect is really a downer. I want to be able to make whole builds centering around a given effect!

    Some ppl are just posting OP items

    I think what blizzard is looking for is items that you can make builds around.

    WD:

    Remove CD of Zombie Wall so that it only has a 5 second cooldown or so when combined with some other gear. We don't want an invincible WD but using wall of zombies more often would be fun.

    a mojo that allows two gargantuan at once would be cool

    monk:

    monk has a LOT of build potential if you just alter some of the restrictions on his attacks. Most notably spirit cost or cooldown. I think that the ability that has the most room for improvement is Inner Sactuary. Its a really cool skill, and I would love to use it, but it is just so outclassed by serenity that it isn't even funny. Having a Spirit Stone that reduced the cooldown of it to 7 Seconds (7 is the perfect number after all) might help it get some more love out of the monk community.

    The more legendaries the better. Diversity is best. In games like these, people like to express individuality. I have concepts, concepts, concepts, but I don't get paid enough to fiddle with the numbers.

    RESPECTABLE (but unremarkable) DAMAGE

    STATS
    Increases number of zombie summoned by 2, but decreases their damage by x%.
    (Summoners want to summon more things.)

    Wizard Staff of ... something displacement
    STATS
    STATS
    Reduce to Teleport drastically, but increases cost to 60 Arcane Power

    Monk Fist of Thousand Fists
    STATS
    STATS
    All hundred fist attacks use the second cycle of the rotation.

    Monk Amulet of Zen
    STATS
    Gain 3 spirit on successful consecutive dodge. Reduces spirit regen to 0.

    p.s. resist that isn't "resist all" is arbitrary and pointless and should be phased out
