Legendary drop rate is crap

General Discussion
Yesterday i played for 5hours, roughly 7 full runs of act3 mp1. it drop 1 leg for me.
Today noon i started to play till evening total 11 full runs of act3 mp1. it drop another 1 leg for me. seriously there is something wrong about the rate man. i think im feeling purely unlucky but still that is !@#!@$ outrageous! my paragon level is 93 btw. any ideas to change it better?
play on a higher mp
they'll be falling from the sky once the servers are back up from maintenance

seriously though, that's well grim, even moreso at 93. i was going to suggest MF, but yeahhhh

The drop rate isnt crap.
Its the drops that are crap.

I farmed D2 for hours and hours over several years and the low drop rate was the carrot on a stick.
But in D2 you actually have a proper item system that progressed so there were lots of i nearly got that drop, need to run again.

On D3, all the drops are crap, so the more you play the more crap you get and you think its the drop-rate which it isnt.

Its the quality of the items that are the problem and Blizard screwed it all up.
Sounds like you want a less random drop rate.

I tend to average 1 legendary every 3 hours (my alts range from paragon 15-45).
In reality this could mean going 4 days without a drop to getting 4 in an hour.

If what you describe fits your lifetime of legendary drops...I'd say it's bad luck.
2 legendary's in 18 runs is just a minor rut. Nothing remotely abnormal.
even if it drop crap i dont mind. now the problem is it doesnt drop at all! eventhough i'm unlucky but cant be that unlucky yea? -.-'
Good. Legendaries should be hard as hell to find. Hate this post all ya want but they are called "Legendary" for reason.
thats because you are running to high mp!! if you are p93.. run mp1 MAX... and roll through as fast as u can. Im p83 and i am surprised when i dont get one per alk run...

you want to kill as many monsters as u can....as fast as u can

^ This. Now that I'm in my Paragon 20s legendaries drop like candy. Problem is, the candy is all rotten.

sorry i was in the middle of typing and had connection issues >.<
because for the past few weeks till ytd. i been doing alk runs, 1 leg drop everyround. out of sudden stop dropping since ytd.
its not the drop rate, its the rng attached to em.

im at 200+ brimstones since 1.0.5 i dont think the drop rate is the problem. its just that they all suck.
just hoping it would take back to normal when sv is up ! PRAY
wait.. so u have been getting plenty.. then one day u dont get any... and u are mad!??? BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA RNG!! RNG!!! Hello? HI!!! this is bad luck calling!!

i have gone a weekend with none... and then i have gotten 16 in a day...
The legendary drops arent really whats bothering me..... its the god-forsaken KEY drops. HOLY S**T!!! ive done 40+ key runs in acts 1-3 on mp 5-7 over the several days...... 4 keys.... 3 of them destructions. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! What happened to the whole "MP0=5%, MP1=10%, MP2=20%, etc etc etc." I call bulls**t on that. its more like "MP0=0%, MP1=0%...... MP6=5%" Im seriously getting pissed! Why add the infernal machines and ubers to the game, if you cant get a bloody key to SAVE YOUR LIFE!!!! F**K
Keep in mind they are called legendary for a reason. if they were to drop more often it wouldnt feel as good to finaly get one. But if you want to up your chances you should up the MP and try to find some MF gear.
cant say i getting plenty. and its 2 days i getting nth,yes i mad. its kinda hard to level my paragon and all i hope was a beam of light to keep me going through my level so yea..

Bang on. That time when a golden hydra bow hit the floor or a crown...

That is pretty much gone. Why they decided to put random attributes on a unique is rather odd but so is watching the Avengers 5 times in a row.
