This has, indeed, been changed, but it also depends on what level you are.

Players who are 1-59 will find that the first time they kill an end Act boss (Butcher, Belial, Azmodan, or Diablo), they will receive a Legendary. Players who are level 60 will receive a Legendary upon defeating Diablo. If you have already defeated Diablo and are not receiving a Legendary, using the "Reset Quests" option will allow you receive this bonus again! However, be aware that you are required to complete every main story quest in the campaign in order to use this option. This also works for resetting the first-time kills from 1-59.

Hope that clears things up!

I've seen a lot of great questions being asked since Nevalistis posted earlier, so I'm going to address as many of them as I can. Thanks to everyone for asking all of these questions, since I'm sure a lot of your fellow Nephalem have been wondering the same thing.

First Kill Legendary Items
  • These will drop for characters from levels 1-59.
  • They will only drop from end of Act bosses (Butcher, Belial, Azmodan, Diablo, and eventually Malthael).
  • Characters below level 11 are unlikely to find Legendary items, because they have a minimum level requirement. Currently there are no Legendary items available below level 11.
  • Using the Reset Quest feature will reset the First Kill Legendary Item drops as well, but only for characters in the appropriate level range.

Reset Quest Bonus Legendary
  • Skeleton King dropping a Bonus Legendary was a bug that has been corrected, as it was not intended. We liked the idea, though, so we’ve gone ahead and added a Bonus Legendary to Diablo.
  • These are an intended bonus for maximum level characters. Currently there is a bug that allows characters levels 1-59 to receive a Bonus Legendary item in addition to the First Kill Legendary item when they kill Diablo, but this is not intended.
  • The Bonus Legendary is only available if you use the Reset Quest feature.
  • We plan on moving the Bonus Legendary to Malthael for players level 61+ when the expansion arrives. Additionally, Diablo will no longer drop a Bonus Legendary for players level 61+.

Let me change the question, can we get do unlimited reset and get unlimited legends from diablo at the moment? Assume we are all lvl 60 and above and we finish ALL the quest before we press the reset button.


As long as you meet all of the criteria to use the Reset Quest feature you can use it as many times as you want. Just remember that each time you want to reset your quest you'll have to complete all of the quest, and their sub-objectives, too.
