Leoric's Signet farming stories

Items and Crafting

3 days no luck. Got 3 legendaries in the 1st 6 hours, and then nothing for the next 2 days. Tonight might be my last night. which is sad, because I REALLY need the cash infusion, but with the chance of finally getting one and have it be <25% and therefore worth alot less (what down to sub 60m this morning) makes me sad.

I'm suffering from
1. bad rng
2.jealousy over those farming it for 4hours and getting it. Those getting 2 already
3.Anger from the way people are pricing it, as if giving a 10m discount is going to sell it faster.
4.Burnout-My speeds have improved. My MF has going up 55 points since the 1st night, and yet, my drops are just horrible. I know the runs, I know how to play. I know how to farm efficiently.
Hell on Royal audience I know exactly where to click, when, how long to wait to let them transform, where to stand to trigger the next phase, and be in range of all the mobs I need to kill, when to hit spirit walk. Nothing.

I both not hate and hate diablo at this point.


I am in the same boat, first 10 hours of farming I got 3 legendaries then the next 30 hours none... I decided to stop looking for the ring and played around on my barb in act3 inferno with no real goal and in about 5 mins danetta's revenge dropped for me (set hand crossbow) and gave me a nice 25 mil so I decided I could go back to farming. This time though I am farming while I lvl my 5th class to 60 (monk) so even if I never find the ring all the time isn't for nothing since I'm getting lvl's (slowly) from the runs.


I guess tonight seems to be better. saw a brown item drop and for a split second, I thought I got it...then it turned out to a be a lvl 10 mojo. frowntown
Well since the price is so low now I'll only be hitting this once in a great while when I'm trying to break away from whatever else I'm doing. At current prices it's just not worth the time I have personally invested in it. Which is no big deal I figure it was a crap shoot anyway. Good luck everyone! Don't get obsessed by doing this too much, you are missing out on many opportunities to find some wonderful gear in inferno mode.
Found 3 legendarys tonight. Boneshatter and two pairs of Crudest Boots.
Meh, a few days ago, Leoric's Signet only had 2 pages on AH. Now it's at 5.

Time to take a break.

I'm gonna hunt for other legendaries now.
I have been farming the Oasis and Desolate sands the past two day, got a Legendary belt in the Oasis and then just right now in the Vault of the Assassins I see a legendary ring drop, it was dropped right in the biggest mob of creeps i had seen in VOA, it dropped early in the battle, my heart beating, eyes so big, I said to my self yeah baby, my precious is home, I identify it and its the freaking Manald Heal Ring, super sad face!
I identify it and its the freaking Manald Heal Ring, super sad face!
lol! sorry you got one of those things but that's what happens when you farm in VOA. I've tried to explain this a couple times. It's all about the base item (not mob level, or anything like that) and if the mob does not drop that base item, then it'll never be the legendary you are looking for.

This base item is the base item for Leoric's signet. if it passes the legendary check, it'll be a Leoric's.

Don't get tripped up on the ilvl's being 1 above it's base item. Take note that these items exist IN BETWEEN common items.

How do you find out which is a certain llegendary's base item?
Weird night. Two Crudest Boots. Two Boneshatters.

No Signet.
How do you find out which is a certain llegendary's base item?

depends on which item you want. There's only so many legendaries. Take Cape of the Dark Night for example
http://d3db.com/item?c=_chest-armor,_cloak
You'll see that it is a req lvl 26, ilvl 29 cloak. Directly above that, is it's base item, a Tabard with req lvl 25, ilvl 28. There are no other items of it's type in range. So when you go hunt for the item, you must first confirm the base item drop and this can be a white/blue or whatever. Then you have to farm it until it passes the legendary check.

I want to confirm what ur are saying, so if I want to farm the VOA, I have to check an item drop to make sure its in the base line u mentioned above, if it don't meet it, then I shouldn't farm that area?

if you're only getting level 16 rings then you'll never get a Signet. Ever. There has to be some 13 rings in there.

Speaking of VOA, I'm gonna do a few runs and see if I can get a collection of rings to screenshot.

I see. So I'm seeing 2 base items above Leoric's Signet. Can the ilvl 14 base ring roll into the legendary Signet also? Or only the ilvl 16 base ring ?
Okay guys, I farmed VOA a few times and collected the rings that I could. Check it out:
http://img856.imageshack.us/img856/7835/voarings.png
As you can see, none of those rings are req lvl 13. Every ring I found in there was req lvl 16 and 18. Since there is a higher proportion of 16 rings, if any of them ever passed the legendary check, they would be a Manald's Heal.

I'm thinking yes, but I might be wrong. It's probably true that it defaults to the closest legendary and the example I can make are the Crudest Boots
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/the-crudest-boots
This item is req level 3 ilvl 6. The next legendary is http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/lut-socks Since ilvl 21 boots do not drop in Sewers or Oasis, if boots ever passed the legendary check, it'll default to Crudest Boots and that's why we have reports of people getting these boots (I've gotten one of these as well)

hmm. So do you think the rings levels 4, 6 and 8 can also roll into legendary? from http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/ring/ , there are no other legendaries closest to them in level except the Signet.

No, the levels are too far out.

In order of progression, it goes lv13, 14 (Signet), 16, 17 (Manald's Heal), 18.
Just went up to 6 pages of rings. I see a +30% with a starting bid of 99,999,999 that's been on the AH for 6 hours and has no bid. I sold my +27% for 114 mil (when there were only 2 pages). Yeah, this may not be worth it anymore. If you get a +20-25 you might only get 20-30 mil for it. Might be more productive to go back to Inferno. At least you'll be gaining paragon and a chance to get better gear.
You should try hardcore. Only 3 rings for sale =p
I started a HC guy a while back but 1.04 got my attention shifted with all these legendary items selling for so much, so I been farming SC. I'll probably get back to my HC toon when things slow down a bit as my SC WD is on the verge of taking down Big. (actually tried tonight but not enough HP's to live through the choke slam)

It's too bad HC doesn't have an RMAH, or I'd play that exclusively. Not that I would ever buy from it, but I like being able to sell my good drops for $. ;)
