Some fans are sure the legendary drop rate is lower now than it was last week, or two weeks ago. It’s a common complaint and hardly worth news’ing, but here’s the Blue reply when asked… Were there Ninja Nerfs to Diablo 3 Legendary Drop Rates?
I am seeing a couple other posts that seem to be wondering the same thing I am – has the legendary drop rate actually regressed, both for rifts and Kadala? I don’t think there is any way, outside of Blizz, to track this, but I have been seeing far fewer legs over the last few days.
Grimiku: I know that it can feel like drop rates are being changed when you have experienced a streak of good or bad luck, but it simply isn’t the case. We gain nothing positive by influencing drop rates without communicating it, and would only lose trust as a result. Simply put, it’s not what we do.
Streaks of bad luck are going to happen, and we all go through them. The danger (and why the thread is locked) lies in the spread of misinformation, which in turn can inspire players to alter their in-game habits in ways that actually have no influence over what items they find.
So, have you guys noticed any decline in legedary drop rates since the 100% bonus ended / became permanent? I have not, though I haven’t had that much time to play. I haven’t heard anyone complaining about it in the clan(s), either.
In fact, the thing I’ve noticed most changed in the clans lately is that everyone is playing on higher difficulty levels. It seems like T1 or T2 is the lowest anyone bothers with anymore, and there are constantly T4 and T5 games going, and this is in Hardcore. Everyone got super-geared during the +100% legendary drop rate event? And now no one who isn’t super-geared can ever get that way, because stealth nerf! 🙁
