    I've seen this mentioned in a few other threads, so here's one catch all. If you've found a legendary or set item in D3, post a screen here and if possible, say where/from what you found it.

    I'd kick off the thread... but I haven't found any yet. I have only a Wiz and DH, both to late-act 2. Busy busy = not enough play time.

    Is this a joke? They are almost exactly the same as my items.

    The biggest disappointment has been itemization. Got a legendary and withing 2 drops found a better magic weapon. Same level requirement.

    One level later I found two more weapons (one rare one magic) that were much better.

    That's broken =(

    I think blizzard overdesigned this game. The real culprit here is certainly the RMAH, they are probably too scared of adding interesting mods that can make people crave way too much for that and create an imbalance on people's desires on the RMAH.

    But guess what blizz, the reason why Windforce and that overpowered PoS Enigma were always being sold on Ebay and D2JSP is because those were game-changers, thats why. Few people are going to go to the RMAH to buy stuff just because it has 100 extra dex then the item they are currently wearing, if thats the itemzation you were aiming for, know that this RMAH is bound to fail.

    I mean, the mods have stuff like... 1% chance to knockback, 1% chance to freeze... that is as fun as the mods can get.

    Very broken. In Diablo 2, unique items filled gameplay roles. "Hey, I need a helm with a lot of magic find." Harlequin Crest. Or, "I need a weapon that's good against hammerdins in PvP." Doom runeword. In fact, you could build an entire character around a single item. Now that's replay value.

    In Diablo 3, items are almost completely interchangeable. I can search the AH for any piece of armor with any stat I want, and I can find a rare with guaranteed certainty that is vastly better than a legendary.

    For a game whose entire purpose is to collect items, this is especially troubling. D3 almost had it when runes were still drops that could be applied to skills to improve them. They were so close. The beta rune system would have vastly improved replay value and tremendously increased the diversity between players.

    I've found two legendary helms that are not worth posting. Both were not as good as the gear I was wearing at the time.

    What level were you at?

    Most of the low level unique weapons and armor I found in D2 were scarcely better than random magic stuff. I often kept them for 'collectors sake' but did not use them. It was not until the mid/high level uniques that I found them very useful. There were certainly exceptions though.

    Uniques in normal have always been bad (exception of a few), though I haven't seen Nightmare and Hell yet there was ALWAYS an abundance of junk uniques.

    I'm sure there are some random gems (not actual gems) that haven't been found yet.

    No, there were only Mara's and Windforce's (per people's memories).

    I found Scrimshaw (lvl 15 spear) and Winter Flurry (lvl 10 off-hand orb) and neither was used by the time they dropped for me, but honestly they are pretty nice for the level requirement. I'll post pictures when I get home from work.

    Fixed that for you. Everything you named was an expansion drop. Back in the initial game the uniques were pretty lame then too.

    My first (and only so far). Gave it to Konfeta.

    I also got this, while not still a legendary, retained its legendary stats:

    Also got Rakanishu's blade, waiting for Bashiok to spawn.
