    I claimed in this thread that i average about 1 legendary per run.

    I got curious to see some real numbers, so i will keep track of my runs from now on and post the drop numbers in this thread.

    I do keep 1+2+3, run straight through fields of slaughter and clear rakkis crossing, then skycrown+stonefort.
    This run takes about 20 minutes.

    I will count legendary items and set items seperately. I will also take notes of enemies slain so i can do a rough legendary/kills.

    I will do at least 50 runs to begin with and update this thread regularly.

    Interesting, mind if I track the same, having something to accomplish is always nice? What MP will you do it on, I'm assuming 0?,

    Your'e very welcome to do the same, the more numbers the better. Please create your own thread though so things not get messed up.

    I run on MP0 and max MF.

    Lifetime kills: 814,207 (Getting closer to that million :) )

    First run complete and of course, no drops :)

    I will keep track of key drops as well, to see if it correlates with the 5% that is claimed to be MP0-droprate.

    Run 1: 0 legs

    In a way i understood that i cursed myself with this thread :D

    Run 11-19 dropped nothing, zip, zero, nada. By far the longest dry spell i've had (with max MF).

    Run 20 netted me a set item (Immortal King's Stride).

    So a few stats this far:

    Runs: 20
    Legs: 7
    Set items: 2
    Legs / run: 0.43
    Avg time between legs: 45 min
    Mobs killed: 25,404
    Mobs per legendary: 2,822

    Nice statistics! I yet have to reach Inferno to farm Legendaries...

    funny side note: I'm at the start of Act 1 Hell and my barb's life is almost the same as your wizard's :p How do you manage to survive???

    I run archon build, which means i kill everything before they even see me :)

    Also, blood magic rune for some life steal to handle reflect packs better.

    And prismatic armor.

    I do die from time to time, but often as a result of some mistake on my part

    Nice going! I'm keeping a spreadsheet of my runs and I'll create a thread sometime over the weekend with my results.

    Trending towards a legendary every hour... hrmmm

    This is very interesting indeed. Keep it going onto 100 if you can! I'm very curious to see the end results.

    Keep going, interested to see how it goes. Myself have seen huge reduction of ilev63 leges past week. Maybe Blizz control drop rate and decrease it always before patches and put it back to normal after patch hit the server to keep people excited.

    Thanks for the response guys. I will keep going until at least 100 runs.
    Remember that my runs only last 20 minutes so about 13 hours running now.

    And as a side note, i do not believe Blizzard changes drop rates on the fly unnoticed.
    They buffed legendary drops (1.05?) and i certainly noticed the difference.

    So far, it has been a slight disapointment with what i would consider as a dry spell.
    Before i started this i had the feeling it rained both legendaries and set items.
    Also saw more keys as well.

    But i am certain it will even out over enough runs :)
