Drop Chance

In Patch 2.0.4 (4-08-2014) Blizzard stated the drop rates for Legendary crafting materials have been changed to match the drop rates for Death's Breath. Those rates are:

  • Normal - 15%
  • Hard - 18%
  • Expert - 21%
  • Master - 25%
  • Torment 1 - 31%
  • Torment 2 - 37%
  • Torment 3 - 44%
  • Torment 4 - 53%
  • Torment 5 - 64%
  • Torment 6 - 77%

While the drop rates for Legendary crafting mats do scale with difficulty, their scaling is independent of the Legendary drop rate bonus slider in Torment 1-6.

Flavour Text

When Cornelius took the throne, he sought to distance himself from the insurgents by adopting the sign of the bear—even tasking the royal armorer with melting down the hilt of his sword. The armorer, however, replaced the wolf’s head hilt with a bear head of inferior materials. Unfortunately for him, he was overtaken by fallen hounds when en route to sell the original.
