I found a legendary this weekend. I’m not sure how common they are at this point, but I thought I’d share. I found the Burning Axe of Sankis, and it does have a cool model. I’m not going to be using it on my Demon Hunter, but I equipped it so the model could be seen.
The model is important because legendaries have unique models in D3. As the name stated, it’s a fiery axe, and the axe looks pretty cool in motion.
There seems to be some concern over the quality of legendaries. There have been complaints that they’re not as good as rares; Blizzard’s response has been that people have been comparing rares of higher level than the legendaries. I’m not really sure what to think. All items have random attributes in Diablo 3, so maybe the problem is a combination of the rarity of legendaries and the chance of getting good stats on them when they’re found.
Here are the stats on the one I found:
- 35.1 DPS
- 19-35 Damage
- 1.30 Attacks per Second
- +4-9 Fire Damage
- Adds 3% to Fire Damage
- +21 Intelligence
- +13 Fire Resistance
- Each Hit Adds +16 Life
- An obsidian axe wielded by the mad Sankis as he turned on his own men inside their fortress. Even as he burned to death himself, he would not stop his attacks on those he had once ruled.
