I have only managed to find one so far and i just started ACT 4. I found this somewhere in ACT 3 i believe.

#2 Posted by Jayesslee (105 posts) -

I have not found a single one and I'm on nightmare Act 3 :/

Wow so i guess they are super rare then.

#4 Posted by doobie (605 posts) -

im nearly at the end of act 4 and not seen one yet

#5 Posted by Cincaid (2956 posts) -

30-ish hours of playing; zero oranges. Plenty of yellows and blues though.

#6 Posted by Binman88 (3687 posts) -

Act 2 Hell, still haven't found one.

There is an abundance of blues for me. And i have had plenty of yellows also.

There was no legendary drop on our "normal" run. We are now on "hell" and so far we had three legendary drops by now (two of them dropped in the second half of "nightmare" while the third one dropped right at the beginning of "hell")...

I've found 2 and I have 2 level 60's

So 1 for each character on first normal playthrough ?

#11 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

Inferno Act II.

Found about 10 or so between the three of us up to now.

All of them have been garbage except a pair of gloves for our barb, but that was about 2 difficulties ago.

One bow and one recipe, both on normal difficulty in Act 2.

You don't get to level 60 on normal, not on nightmare either. This guy played A LOT.

I am in nightmare act 1 and have not seen any legendary stuff.

I haven't found a single recipe yet.

#15 Posted by PhilipDuck (548 posts) -

I got 2 lmao, was on normal though

#16 Posted by barberforce (104 posts) -

In typically Blizzard fashion they'll become super "unrare" in the future

#17 Posted by owack6 (216 posts) -

It would be more gratifying to get a legendary if they weren't utter and complete shit just like most loot that is randomized, can always hope for that one good one though.

I got my first one in act 4 in Hell difficulty if i remember right.

#18 Posted by Deadmanforking (577 posts) -

Just started Act 2 on Nightmare, and so far a big fat zero.

#19 Posted by Metzo_Paino (318 posts) -

Nope, but I'm only on Act 2 of normal difficulty.

Found about 5 rates so far and I'm not sure what to do with them. Should I sell them to a vender (about 150 gold), salvage them, or put them in my chest for a play through with a different class (they're all class specific and not for my class)?

#20 Posted by Fudge91 (199 posts) -

Two pieces couldn't use any of them on my barb, sold one on the AH. And decided to salvage the last one, to see if any rare materials came out of it... which was not the case :(

I just turned them into recourses. The sell value to a vendor doesn't really make it worth it. And putting them on Auction House didn't appeal to me. I have used my blacksmith a lot, so breaking down blue and yellow items thats unusable seemed like the right thing to do for me at least.

One lvl 60 setpiece legendary for the Monk's 'Inna's XY' set, and some random legendary spear on Nightmare difficulty Act III.

Legendaries and sets are currently a joke. It takes a very specifc RNG loot generation outcome for an outstanding item, chances for a good legendary item, especially set-pieces, are ridiculously small.

#23 Posted by gamefreak9 (2359 posts) -

I've run into one and I have 3 level 60s now :P.

#24 Posted by Dredlockz (346 posts) -

Starting Inferno, haven't seen any drop for me.

I know you dont get to lvl 60 in the first playthrough, in theory you could if you kept grinding. But i guess i was reading his comment the wrong way because of my topic title, which says first playthrough.

#27 Posted by TobbRobb (4647 posts) -

I found 3, all in Inferno... So that makes like my 13th run?

#28 Posted by Binman88 (3687 posts) -
#29 Posted by ajamafalous (11994 posts) -

You really shouldn't worry too much about them in their current state because in most cases you can find a rare that's better. Blizzard really fucked up the itemization.

#30 Posted by Jawshua (267 posts) -

I didn't find any on my first playthrough. It wasn't until my 2nd character on hell that I found one.

#31 Posted by Mesklinite (804 posts) -

0 and that makes me a sad panda in act 1 hell. I love collecting those.

#32 Posted by Icemo (642 posts) -

Zero legendary items and I'm at Inferno Act II, damn you lucky bastards!

#33 Posted by Ares42 (2663 posts) -

87 hours played and just found my third. Still haven't learned to not get my hopes up though =(

#34 Posted by Enigmatical (135 posts) -

Two as I entered "Hell" with my barbarian. A pretty crappy intellect axe on Normal and Etrayu the bow (which I sold for quite a bit of gold) in Act 4 on Nightmare.

#35 Edited by Hitchenson (4682 posts) -

First playthrough? I'm in Act 2 Inferno, with 120ish hours played and I'm yet to get a unique drop. My friend gave me some unique boots (Boj Anglers with Int) that dropped for him though.

#36 Posted by Galiant (2193 posts) -

110 hours of playing. Four legendaries: Level 16 belt (The Witching Hour), level 27 chest (Heart of Iron), level 39 spear (Arreat's Law) and level 60 quiver (Dead Man's Legacy).

I'm using the quiver right now, it's got some great stats on it.

#37 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2562 posts) -

On my Barbarian (lvl 49, act 4 Nightmare) I haven't found a one - but on my Wizard (lvl 33, act 1 Nightmare) I found one in Normal. I specced him into magic find (he's sitting at +120% at the moment), but I'm not sure if that has helped in this case. Was probably just luck, and damn it was a terrible legendary.

#38 Posted by SeanFoster (868 posts) -

I'm on Act 3 on Hell Difficulty......No legendary drops. It's a bummer.

#39 Edited by Adamsons (877 posts) -

11 so far, one repeated item. Only 2 have been any good. No set items.

Inferno act 3.

Really varies from item to item, a lot of the jewelry can roll consistently well whereas pretty much all weapons are garbage regardless. Also varies between items because some have decent stats that are always going to be on the item, e.g. there is some set amulet that always rolls attack speed.

#40 Posted by spazmaster666 (1967 posts) -

Non so far across my five characters but from the stats of many of the legendary items I've seen i the Auction house, they are nothing special for the most part so I'm not really that disappointed.

#41 Posted by Renahzor (991 posts) -

Act 2 inferno, coming up on 80ish hours I believe, 0 legendary items.

#42 Posted by pornstorestiffi (4915 posts) -

Crazy seeing so many haven't found a single one, even with a massive amount of hours put in, AND multiple playthroughs and characters. Insane.

#43 Posted by gla55jAw (2689 posts) -

Found 1 in Nightmare Act 1, nothing since.

#44 Posted by WMWA (1162 posts) -

Inferno act 2, and have found a whopping ZERO. Lol

#45 Posted by MagusMaleficus (1036 posts) -

Almost through with Act I on Nightmare with my Wizard and just started Act II on Normal with a Witch Doctor--nothing so far...

#46 Posted by DeanoXD (608 posts) -

I have well over 100 hours over my two primary characters and i have yet to find one legendary item. I am starting hell on both and still just yellows, its kind of disappointing but it doesn't affect my opinion of the game overall.

#47 Posted by supamon (1333 posts) -

I found 3 in total so far. One in normal, one in nightmare and the last in hell. The first was dropped by a plain goatman in act 1, 2nd and 3rd legendaries were both dropped at the start of act 2 just after meeting the enchantress in the same pile of rocks! All crap though so it really doesn't change anything.

It is actually more cost efficient to sell your unwanted rares at a vendor, and then buy whatever salvage stuff you need at the auction house, where both kinds are dirt cheap.

#49 Posted by Tordah (2479 posts) -

50 hours played and zero legendary items here thus far...

#50 Posted by Zaccheus (1793 posts) -

I have one character in Hell, one on nightmare and few in lvl 30 or so. That's something like 80-90h and I have found one legendary. They were decent, pretty low level boots. Used them for a while and then sold them at the AH. Most of the legendary gear at the AH seems to be super overpriced crap.
