Diablo® III

So many useless legendaries... Shame

Does anyone use any of these... ever?

A lot of them are low level, but perhaps they should have made some of them useful at endgame level too... Otherwise, whats the point in them? You (might) get to use some of these while levelling a character, which takes all of a few hours.

Some of these are even designed for endgame! you gots to lol... I know they are hopefully addressing itemization soon, but thought i'd make this list as an eye opener of how much actually needs work.

I find it funny how 75% of the legendries available are made to be used for under level 60, yet this is the least amount of time we spend in the game, and you are unlikely to even find any of them during your quest to level 60 unless you buy off the ah.

Legendries under level 60 should have a 1000% increased drop rate. They are useless for endgame and we will only use most of them for a couple of character levels (20 minutes of gameplay) while levelling up.

Make a good argument as to why I should take any of these items off the list above and I’ll do it. Equally argue any items I’ve not listed that should be and I’ll add them.

The only good legendaries are the ones that have stats on them other items don't, mostly crit, crit damage or IAS. This, gentlemen, is how they design stuff these days at Blizzard.

Azura's wrath is a great sword when used properly.. I use one in Inferno MP3 often.. Im still kinda low level though. It does have low dps compared to other swords, but its super fast attack speed makes up for it, and if you can get one with a high "freeze on hit" rating, the sword is extremely useful. I have a friend who uses one combined with a 2nd much higher dps weapon for his barb and does really well on inferno MP10..

Key is getting one with a high freeze percentage.. Mine is like 13.7%, with my attack speed of 3.17 i freeze enemys every couple hits. Works well.. My friends is even better with 100 extra dps than mine, and over 15% chance to freeze.. Using his whirlwind barb, he freezes monsters alot, then does his big damage with his other weapon.. Works really well.

I'd take the Oculus off of that list...but yeah 95% of those listed are completely worthless

Good job.Even ilv63 legend items are aslo 50% useless, don't need identify

What I find really funny is seeing these things on the AH for millions of dollars.

You put up a good argument. I'm considering taking it off the list

Bethesda wants their lore back. :)

At least make them salvageable for Brimstone. Or at least a brimstone nugget that has to be combined to make a full one.

Totally agree.

+1 OP. I was thinking of doing this too. Glad you took the time! Blizzard stated they want to improve legendaries yet again, so hopefully they will look at this and buff accordingly.
Reply Quote
I like the Skycutter too.. But not because its a good sword, i just think it looks cool, lol.. And i like having the Angel follower you get when you use it. lol.

They should at least make some of the lower level legendary's come with a mandatory socket. At least then you can upgrade the DPS on them while your leveling and use them a bit longer..

I actually use a few legendary's on that list, mainly for fun factor reasons though, not due to them being really "good" items.

For levelling some of those are great...the issue is just that they never drop. In D2, there were a plethora of fun levelling items but now, nadda.

I've used DMShade on my wiz as it was dirt cheap to buy, otherwise i've found one levelling set/legendary and of course it was a shield...

i think most rares are better then these legendaries while levelling anyway.Even then while levelling you ony use them for a couple of levels before they are useless :/
Reply Quote
Yup bad legendaries are bad, even if you do find them they are simply not good.

Like others pointed out this is also true for a bunch of legendary items even at the highest levels....
Reply Quote
Legendaries rely on the same random rolling system that rares do.

So, technically, it's just the secondary stats you're hoping to get good rolls on.

Legendaries need to have very good, pre-set stats on them and they need to be better, in many ways, than the run-of-the-mill rares that drop.

Seeing a big STAR on the map with a birght shiny light on them doesn't get me excited because I know that the item has about a 75% chance of sucking anyway.
