Diablo® III

New Legendary Ideas

It would be rly great to have a set that would inflict pain to You DoT, but for the price of great power, maybe even + life leech.
I would use that set gladly since i have enough spirit regeneration, what I lack is power and survivability.

Thorns just has no place in the fast pace world of diablo 3. Should be removed in first place.

I think it has the potential to be in the game but I can see the distaste of it. I think it was Travis Day who said in his blog linking your DPS somehow to the Thorns Damage output, that would definitely be a start but it does give thought on build diversity. One example is a support character with defensive stats and abilities through the roof, thorns just being one of those.

Here`s an example.

Load up on only defensive base stats, (YAY SHIELDS AGAIN) i.e. AR, VIT, Armor, Thorns, Reduce damage from X, etc... focus all skills on support and control abilities for the group and take the thrashing of a life time. You`d essentially be Superman in terms of defense and if you can maintain a reasonable dps you could add some dmg output for the group but this isnt your prime directive.

The improvement to legendaries is a great step in this direction because it allows the developers to add unique abilities in this regard. Sure it`s not some peoples play style but I think the overall goal is to broaden the build diversity with this improvement to items as well. Thoughts??

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! :)

What about crafting of Legendary items and set items.

I like most of them that add something other than just main stats and CD and CC the ones that would add some fun to the items rather than just the pure ability to face roll due to high dps

Remove all the useless legend affixes like "the wand finds your death hilarious" and add in something useful instead.

Legends wands need a good buff, Chantando is superior in almost every way. So are EF. The +0.20-0.25 attack speed makes almost every item useless. You need to add more game changing affixes to more variety of items so that players have more choices.

I think it would be kind of cool to make a legendary set based on Whimshyre. The set legends would only drop from whimshyre and all would sport a colorful candy look.

Happy Cap

100-200 primary stat
50-100 vit
2 random affix
20% chance to summon a cuddle bear to fight along side of you


+200 primary stat
2 random stats
Health globes bonus
20% chance to summon a sprinkle to fight along side of you

Flower Power

Chest armor

+Primary stat
3 socket
+ 12 movement speed
20% chance to summon a unicorn to fight along side you

Rainbow Briches
1 random
2 sockets
crit hit dmg 25%-35%
20% chance to summon a Happy cloud to fight along side of you

Set bonus
2 item bonus
your whymshyre friends attack faster
Leave a colorful rainbow trail as you walk

3 item set
when your whymshyre friends are hit chance to drop a cupcake in battle
+ 3000 health globe bonus

4 item set

+50% chance to summon whymshyre creatures and whymshyre creatures are enraged

Worusk's Earth Splitter - Two-hand Mighty Weapon (ilvl 63)
140~200 - 200~340 Physical damage
35% ~ 50% Increased Weapon Damage
250 ~ 450 Strength
190% Critical Damage (fixed)
Might of Worusk*
+2 Random Attributes

Might of Worusk- Chance on hit to cast an Improved Seismic Slam Rumble rune attack, this Seismic Slam wouldn't do the primary damage of Seismic slam, but only the rune effect instead, at 100% Weapon damage for 3seconds (instead of 60% Wep.dmg. for 2 sec).

This would maybe allow for a viable spec with Seismic Slam with the rumble rune, counting the proc and rumble together as a very powerful AoE damage overtime. The fact being that the weapon is a Mighty weapon the rage cost of Seismic slam would be reduced by the number of targets that Seismic Slam, currently if you hit a good number of targets with S.S with a mighty weapon in hand the cost is almost null.

The high and near perfect Crit.Dmg. fix roll is to make the item desirable even if it doesn't come with a socket, and making it VERY desirable for use if you roll the extra attribute as an open socket. Also high Strength roll because the weapon is a 2hander.

Everyone is suggesting 150 to 200 main stat on there items. Don't you know that rare items we have now role more? I had a sword with over 300 str. It seems silly to request all these godly over powerd items and then skimp on there main stat. We all know what makes things powerfull.

I want to see more creative ideas

my favorite suggestion so far was the fire chane ring. One for your follower and you. Or fire chain between all players with it equiped in public games. Damage based on a percent of the groups total dps. Or dose this seem to corny ? is it to much like the sword that spawned a demon and fire chane? I saw a lot of people using it when it first came out.

Witch doctor Set "Rakanishu's Prophecy" in honor of Trang-oul my favourite items from diablo II

Stats i will let you decide. but make it a 5 piece set

Set bonus

(2) Health of Zombie Dogs and Gargantuan are increased by 10%
(3) Your Zombie dogs are replaced by Fallen Imps
(4) Your Gargantuan Is Replaced by Fallen Overseer
(5) You embrace Rakanishu and turn into a Fallen Shaman

Zombie Dogs turn into:
Gargantuan turns into: http://diablo.wikia.com/wiki/Fallen_Overseer
You turn into: http://diablo.wikia.com/wiki/Fallen_Shaman

As a note set bonus 5 doesnt need to happen you can make the items themselves look like a fallen shaman :)

You appear to be out of the loop in how items roll.

Say an item gets a primary stat over 300, what is happening is something along these lines...

-250 STR
=325STR+75 VIT

I'd love to see something like this... make it super rare and account bound:

Chameleon Armor

Let's say you're wearing an Inna's helm and chest, nat's boots and ring, IK gloves

You get the stats of the armor itself plus it counts as another piece of any and all set items you are currently wearing. So, in the example above, the Chameleon armor counts as a 3rd Inna's, 3rd nats, and 2nd IK set item.
