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! :)
These are my suggestions for game changing legends. I'm still updating the original post (first link) as I get new ideas for legs. The aim's to make at least one for each slot.

What my items are trying to accomplish is that, by not using the common dps and survivability affixes, or applying them into an unusual fashion; builds, underpowered skills, and play-styles can be produced. You could say that these items are intended to provide a new way of looking into the old affixes and/or being good alternatives to current BiS. Item's that you could build your skill's and char around them.
Ghoom's Severed Gut: (Legendary Belt)
Armor: 265-305. Item Level: 63.

.Increase Chance of Finding a Health Globe By: 25-45%.
.Health Globes and Potions Grant 7500-15000 life.
.Increases Gold and Health Pickup Radius By 15-35 Yards.
.Wearer is Immune to Poison Damage.
.Ghoom's Glutony*.
.Ghoom's Never Ending Famine*1.

*. Every time the wearer consumes a health globe and is healed by it there's a 25% of Ghoom's Severed Gut spawning a stationary Poison Cloud of 5 yards. The Cloud deals 1500% weapon damage over 10 secs as Poison damage type. If a creature's killed within the cloud it's spawns an adjacent Cloud with the same properties. Each cannot spawn more then 2 other Clouds in this way. Clouds cannot stack upon each other.

*1. When inside of a Poison Cloud the wearer recieves a 5% movement bonus. Futhermore, every time the wearer consumes a health globe and is healed by it he/she gains 1% movement speed to a maximum of 15%. The bonus last 10 secs and is reset by consuming a health globe. The increased speed of both bonuses is not counted towards the movement cap.

The stench is revolting to my guts; felling it wrapped around my belly, trying to free itself brings an intense chilling to my spine; the sight of it's almost unbearable to my eyes; the sounds that it makes as it consumes my foes is nightmarish, and yet I feel depply attached to it, a viceral feeling; not mentioning I've never been this hungry my whole life.
Arreat's Sacred Striders (Legendary Boots)
Armor: 309-355. Item Level: 63. (The artwork should be that of the astral greaves.)

.10-20% Life.
.10% Chance of Casting Ground Stomp/Wrenching Smash When Hit.
.5% Chance of Casting Earthquake/Chilling Earth When Hit.
.Immune to Frozen and Cold Damage.
.All Creatures In a Radius of 15-20 Yards Have Their Movement Speed Decreased by Half.
.The Sacred Pledge.*

*. Whenever the wearer takes damage equal or more then 15% of his health pool, an Ancient Barbarian Ghost is summoned. The base damage of the Ghost will be 60% of the wearer. It will randomly spawn with 1 out 5 abillities: Weapon Throw/Ricohet; Seismic Slam/Rumble; Rend/Ravage; HoTA/Birthright; Whirlwind/Dust Devils. All abilities damage correspond to that of the skill. The Ghosts last until they're killed. No more then 5 Ghosts can be active simultaenously.
[The Ghosts share the same traits as a Wd Zombie Dog]

The Spirit Clan was the guardian of all the tribes ancestors, the keepers of their souls; forever bounded to Arreat. The leader and most revered amongst them was the elder shaman. Whevever great peril approached the mountain, he would travel around Arreat, his footsteps awakening the tribes spirits to the coming battle, after all Death was nothing compared to their oath.
The Shadow Matrix (Legendary Tiara)
Armor:397-457. Item Level: 63. (Artwork: A small black stone attached to the wearer's forehead.)

.12-24% Movement Speed.
.025-050 Attacks per Second.
.Increases Damage Against Elites by 25-50%
.Slippery Shadow.*
.Shadow Infusion.*1
.Shadow Blood.*2

*. Whenever the wearer is subject to a control impairing effect or curse there's 25% chance that it will be negated. When it happens the wearer also gains a 50% movement speed boost for 2 seconds.

*1. Whenever the wearer is hit there's a 5% chance of the shadow infusion to be activated. For 15 secs. the wearer gains immunity to physical damage and 25% resistance to other damage types. Every attack has 10% chance to kill any non-elite/rare monster it hits, regardless of the damage. Whenever a creature's killed that way it explodes dealing 180% weapon damage to everyone in 15 yard radius. The Shadow Infusion ability cannot be activated more then once every 45 seconds.
[the wearer's appearance become similar to Shadow Power/Gloom but without the green wings].

*2. Critical Hit Chance and Critical Hit Damage bonuses provided by: Gear, Passives and Skills, aren't applied to the wearer's overall damage. All bonuses provided by the Wearer's Gear are instead, converted as following: All Critical Hit Chance in gear is converted to Min-Max Damage on ratio of 1%=1-10 damage. And critical Hit Damage in gear is converted on the ratio of 50%=150 life regeneration, 100 armor, 10 all resistance.
[Critical Hit % still applies to crit calculating effects such as BF:ItF, Vengeance, Critical Mass, etc...]

The Shadow, The Darkness, The Abyss. All different names to the same Entity. It isn't necessarily evil as The Light isn't necessarily good. They are just parts of this universe's Creation, one feeding the other, in the never ending cycle we call Life. It's way, The Shadow Way, of 'loving' those that embrace it is to infuse it's very essence onto them. Therefore to choose that path, that love, is to become par of the Shadow itself. Choose carefully, young one, but choose with your soul. For there's no coming back after you've choosen.


M'avina's Deflectors (Legendary Bracers)
Armor: 220-253. Item Level: 63.

.15% Chance to Dodge. (Not subject to diminishing returns).
.400-750 Armor.
.Increases Gold and Health Pickup Radius 20-25 Yards.
.M'avina's Strategical Retreat.*
.M'avina's Counter-Attack.*1
.M'avina's Deflection.*2

*. Whenever the wearer takes damage that would otherwise kill he/she, that damage is negated and the wearer backflips 20 yards. After the flip the wearer gains invulnerability for 2 secs. That effect cannot be triggered more then once per minute.

*1. Whenever the wearer dodge's a melee attack there's a 10% chance that a counter-attack will be iniciated. If the monster is not an elite/boss/rare it's automaticaly killed. Elites/Bosses/Rares that are hit take 100% weapon damage and are stunned for 2 secs.

*2. Whenever the wearer is subject to a ranged attack and dodge's it the projectile is thrown back at the attacker. The maximum reach of the counter attack's determined by your pickup radius.

Instead of blabbering about how many arrows per minute you can shoot, or how far can you throw your javelin young one, know that, in combat, the first rule's to stay alive. A dead Amazon can't kill anything.
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! :)

Can we change "old" legendary items? I would love a Frosties vs Magefist dilemma for some characters.
I would really like to see rares and legendary's be able to roll double stats as one of their affixes.

For example:

Example Amulet
+220-300 strength
+220-300 strength ( Double roll)
+220-300 vit
+80 All resist
+5 To Pick Up radius

Would give more emphasis on stats.
Cosmic Rod:
This item opens up a portal to another universe that looks similar to Horazon's Sanctuary from D2. In this universe, you'll have to battle powerful enemies that are the equivalent of the Act 4 enemies of whatever difficulty level you're on. These enemies should look alien, not demonic. It'd offer some variety for experience grinding, and every time you use this item, it would refresh the cosmic level, so you can keep your 5 stacks of Nephalem Valor and keep playing for more and more experience, gold, and items.
mjolnir: Hammer drops epic legendary beam shines up, player is unable to pick it up.

For starters they need to make the 3piece nat bonus give CC not 2 piece. Tired of these frontin CM rockin 3 pieces of dex gear (inna and nat boots/ring).
Also lol at some of these CLEARLY OP items. Revamping is one thing. Making these would just turn former sets obsolete.

Also- bring back the Smite skill and shields no longer are obsolete! MORE GOLD SINK YAAAAAAY!!!

Hell if you made shields which provided auras, Attack % increase, LoH, or AS they could even be useful to everyone!

How about instead of having hundreds of item ideas be written down and forgotten

you guys just go ahead and create some?
Invisibility ring

Allows you to be invisible until your first attack/technique. Then all monsters/players in sight can see you.
First off... why was this post deleted - started a new thread but I guess I will put my idea here...? Is this too good of an idea or can I just not find my original post(nope it got deleted...)?

The update should also include "Super Rare Legendary" items - Including sets, armor, weapons etc. So instead of just having your normal legendary items, you will also have some items that only a certain amount were released into the game. This could open up marketing for blizzard. If there are certain items where only one was made, a lot of people would play to try and get a super rare item. You could also number some items to 10,20,30,50,100,1000... So you could have 1000 Skorn's that are better than just your regular Skorn. [Skorn 202/1000], 0r you could get a rare [Mempo 1/1]. Either way, numbered items could bring in a new audience, and blizzard could advertise the game more along the lines of.. "Who will hold the sword/axe/helm" if you catch my drift.

I just think It would be great to see a rare drop and it be sequentially numbered, knowing I am the only one, or one of the only ones to have a certain item.
Berzerker Armour

All pieces of this set have ignore durability loss.

Set has insane stats but, also has a percentage of damage you inflict returned.

Set is available in stages, each stage giving a raw %dmg modifier, and a higher %dmg reflected back.
