are we limited with each legends?

General Discussion
before anyone says they have gotten hundreds of crap legs, im talking about good ones, like low level leoric or puzzle ring.

see, a day after i reached pl100, i started farming nightmare mp10 just for the sake of curiosity as to what high end low level legs i could find and came across five puzzle rings in one day, multiple runs like more than 50 i guess.

gave them all away then farmed the 2nd day and found nothing but buriza (5.3 freeze chance/68 pierce; 12.7 freeze/79 pierce) gave 5.3 away, using the 12.7

someone told me that players are limited to good leg drops. i have no basis whatsoever to give this a nod.

chip in your thoughts

luck of the draw not limited, any person can find any item
Random random is random. That is all.
Drops are associated with the auction house.
random, luck, and association with AH. my goodness >_<
the guy who said that it was the "luck of the draw" used that expression to describe the randomness of the drops. it's random.
noted. thanks.

There are no conspiracies or caps surrounding loot.

Each time you kill an enemy you had the same chance as you did the last time you killed one.

Knowing this fact I find it really sad that people brimstone bad legendary items.
If we collectively flood the market with thousands of terrible legendary's then the game will be forced to drop great ones almost exclusively.

Everyone who plays should post at least 5 terrible legendary's on the AH at all times and we'll all win!
if anyone needs a f'n Ivory Shield i get them every 5 mins... x \

Then explain why I get multiple frostburns/gladiators/nats embrace/stormshields/every other Leg on the **** list all day...Have yet to EVER see an EF/Mempo/Unity/Nats boots

Same story for pretty much every friend I play with, TONS of bad legs i60-63, very VERY rarely the sought after ones.

sounds easy enough, too bad its not true

@runit3 probably because mempo has a lower drop rate then frostburn, im just assuming but thats how D2 worked

Certain Legendary items might have a lower base value and as a result higher drop rate.

Your experience is completely anecdotal and not reflective of the actual loot tables.

Yet again, there are no conspiracies regarding loot. Every time you kill something your chance to receive a good item remains the same.

I've picked up EF, mephos and nats, sold them. But not unity, not yet.
items do drop but insanely far between and almost like weeks apart or even once a month regardless of daily gaming. weird huh

i'm speaking for myself here using my experience with high end drops (WH, ef, mem, IC, IK, etc)

Then why not make loot tables public? It would silence every doubter of the AH "conspiracy" if we were allowed to see the actual loot table data.

Because there is no such data most likely. I assume drop rates of individual legendary items are governed by their base item type and item level as well as number of legendary items they compete with when being rolled.

Oh not possible server should have such data. I understand 95% of item should be rubbish and the last 5% is good but could more player get good insteal of crazy collecting gold from AH to buy one?

You don't understand, item level distribution (published) and base item type drop rate (not published, but observable) should be all you need to reconstruct legendary drop rates. What I'm saying is that they don't set drop rates of legendaries on an individual basis.
