If I just want to farm legendaries...(1)Category: GeneralMarch-18-2014 9:31 AM PDT (9 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
...should I play normal? I've been aiming for plvl 100 (I don't have that much free time) but once I hit it I'd like to hunt legendaries.

Are the drops in normal mode the same quality? Does killing more monsters equate to more drops?

The difficulty setting you're playing has no effect on the items you find at level 60. You can play at whatever difficulty feels right for you, and have a chance at the same items. This will change a little for players who reach level 70, though, since a small number of items only drop in Torment I - VI.

Whoops! Clearly my post could have been written better, and I apologize for causing some confusion. I'm going to try and clarify on what I meant to make sure we're all on the same page.

    Quality of Items
  • An items quality is unaffected by difficulty. For example, a level 60 Nailbiter found in Normal has the exact same potential as a level 60 Nailbiter found in Torment VI.
  • The Drop Chance of a Legendary Item
  • Normal through Master receive bonuses to experience and gold, but no bonus to the drop chance for a Legendary item.
  • There is a bonus to the drop chance for a Legendary item starting at Torment I difficulty, and this bonus increases with difficulty. For example, Torment VI has a greater bonus to the chance a Legendary item drops than Torment I does.
  • There are certain Legendary items that only drop in Torment I - VI.
