Have you had a boss or champion pack drop a legendary?

I've found like 6 lengendaries.  All of them pretty shitty except the Boj Anglers I found.  None of them have been from a boss or champion pack.  I always get them off of just some random trash monsters wandering around.  Has anyone seen a boss actually drop one?

I had Zoltun Kulle drop a crappy legendary weapon. I also had a champion pack in act 3 drop Tal Rasha's chest piece. The other legendaries (all of them were garbage) I found were dropped from random trash mobs.

String of Ears from Azmodan on Hell.
Rest of my Legendaries either came from the environment or random trash mobs.
Got a set item from a vase, I was overjoyed (until I saw its crappy stats).

@TaliciaDragonsong: String of Ears is one of the good lengendaries.  So lucky.

My only Legendary item was Boj Anglers as well, and it fell off a little demon in the spire. Heh guys and gals, isn't there an update today for Zombie Bears(fixed on inclines, bugged b4)and increased loot drop rates? Haven't been able to log on yet.

@pweidman: The zombie bears fix went live today.  The drop rate changes were changed in 1.0.3, but if you mean the second drop rate changes, Blizzard said they will be in 1.0.3b later this week.

I FINALLY got a legendary set item drop (Green item) Item lvl 61 Tal Rasha's Horadric Helmet that after looking around on the AH is worth at least $10,000,000 gold or $50 USD in the RMAH. But, I decided to wear it on my Witch Doctor because it significantly increased my damage and vitality.

Two of them: Flesh Tearer and Dead Man's Legacy. The roll on DML is alright, but the Flesh Tearer is a shit weapon all around for being a level 60.

I've also gotten Bul'Katho's Sacred Charge to drop as well.

@Cataphract1014: I play Witch Doctor however, and besides that drop I didn't get anything worthwhile, still struggling in Act 2.
Just about done with the game.

Only if it rolls good stats and a high %, otherwise you'll get more mitigation out of a regular belt.

Found 2 legendaries, one very early on that was like a level 17 item (don't even remember what it was), and just now in Act 2 inferno off a blue mob pack. Messerschmidt's, a level 57 legendary axe. Was bummed out when I saw it was a levle 57 weapon. I'll be glad to get 100-200k for it, probably.

Found 2 legendaries on my second playthrough. An axe and some gauntlets, I don't remember the names, one in a vase, the other from an enemy. They both kinda sucked. Kept them in my stash.

60 hours and not one legendary has dropped for me yet. Maybe my magic find isn't high enough but I can't give up any stats trying to stack that.

Nope. In my 260 hours of playing across several characters the only 4 legendaries I've found came from armor/weapon racks, a chest, and a corpse.

Never saw any set items. Which is completely ridiculous to me, considering there are lower level sets I've only ever seen on the AH.

Only one and it was just recently. It's called Goldskin or something. It's decent

I have only seen two legendaries drop. I got one from breaking a stump on Act I, and another from a champion pack in the Cathedral.

I got one this evening. It was a level 9, 2-handed axe that I couldn't use. So I sold it for next to nothing because I want to break the economy. It dropped from a trash mob in the Oasis

200h and about 6 legendaries, and three of them from champions with 5 stacks of nephalem valor. One was from the prison guard dude boss (before drop nerf) and one who was from a treasure goblin with 5 stacks as well. I also got two green set drops before the nerf in act 1, one from a weapon rack and the other was from a random zombie I think (Natalyas and Innas but I don't remember what parts of the set, sold long time ago). But lately I have been getting real crap, only one of all these drops have been post 1.3 patch (I started to play the game about 1.5 weeks after launch so I have kinda the same amount of time played before and after patch), with 5 stacks I get only one yellow at all times from champions in act 3. In act 1 and 2 I get 2-3 at all times. So my tip for you grinders, stop doing act 3 ;). I for one am tired of the game and the lousy balance with difficulty, drop rates and money so I am about to quit for real. I put all my gear on RMAH and just hoping for the best :p.

(I am not ranting about any patch, I like that they are changing things up and I hope they will continue to do that).. But I feel aaalmost done!

With about 60-ish hours played across all my charectors I finally had my first legendary drop last week off a champion pack.

A 2-hand sword with hatred-regen and pretty lousy stats.

Yeah.

I've had a very strange experience. I've gotten 4 Legendaries and 3 out of 4 were from a weapon rack (the other was from one of those cocooned victims in the spider cave). Consequently I always go out of my way to check weapon racks. I was starting to believe that weapon racks were the only place they dropped!

I got around 10 legendaries and not a single one came from a boss or champion pack, it's always been little mobs or chests (I guess chests drop only crap by now, though).

Since making this post I've had 2 lengendaries drop off of packs.  One was Andariel's Visage and the other was a crappy 400DPS level 60 staff.

No, and I am getting really annoyed. I can't progress solo through act 2 for farming or act 3 because well I don't have 100k DPS pre-ss (as a demon hunter), and have no vitality/res gear to survive many attacks.
 
The REAL problem with the game right now is that "to progress" through these acts I need new gear, and new weapons (decent bow/crossbow) will cost me anywhere from 5 million to 100 million. I can't get that kind of money because I don't have the weaponry to kill these mobs in the first place!
 
Solo act 2 is so brutal, I admit I am bad at the game but it gets really infuriating when a "vile swarm" kills you 15 times running across the desert because you can't see it, and then invisible fucking snakes.
 
I just want better weapons :( Using a 850 DPS crossbow with 43% crit damage, and a socket so I have 50% crit damage so 93% with 850 dps weapon. Not a bad item, but I need one of them 1300 dps shooters!
 
Edit: 97 hours and not a single legendary, or set item. The most expensive item I ever got was 1.2 million.
