I'm trying to figure out how the system works and I was wondering.

I already read about, Under what conditions does Malthael drop legendary pieces or plans?

When you first kill Malthael you have a guarantee drop (boots + plan) and another one, if you reset your quest you will get another guarantee legendary.

But, reading a blue, the guarantee legendary comes if you complete all the quests before, is this true? Have anyone tried it?

What happens if I reset the quests, a friend of mine give me the last wp and kill him again, will I have another leg?

On the other hand, what happens if I powerlevel one toon to 70 doing ccor and hermit, doing no quest at all and a friend of mine kills malthael in T1? Will I get only the plan + boots or I will get a lot of legendaries?


  • The answer is the same as this question. The only difference is that question was before RoS was available, so you need to kill Malthael instead of Diablo for the legendary to drop. May 7, 2014 at 15:50
  • Could you put a link to the blue post you commented? "...reading a blue..."

I have tried resetting quests and killed Malthael with a friend giving me the WP afterwards, but got no legendary out of it.

Afterwards I tried doing all quests in act 5 and killing Malthael afterwards, which resulted in a legendary and a plan, so i think you need to do all quests in act 5 for the guaranteed legendary (I have no official source about this, but this seems pretty much like the way it is).

Also to reset the quests you need to do ALL quests from act 1-5 or the button won't get clickable. SOURCE

Additionally (just if you didn't know) you get an experience and gold bonus for completing quests the first time after resetting quests.

  • That's what I was worried about, the plan of powerleveling one toon to 70 and having a friend to kill malth in T1 wont work :S

  • yep, with toons it would be the same, you need to clear the whole 5th act for the 100% leg

  • Wrong! After resetting quests I could immediately kill Mal and get my 100% leg drop!

  • well you just had luck then, legs can still drop for sure, if you had done act 5 before you would've probably got 2 legs (:

There are a couple of issues with your acquired knowledge. Not sure where you got it, but here you go:

The first time you kill Malthael, which is assuming you go through the entire story, you are guaranteed one legendary. That is it. There is no boots + plan, crafting material, nothing. Just one legendary.

IF you want to reset your quests, you will be forced to start from act 1, quest 1 and work your way through the entire campaign again. This also "resets" the Malthael legendary drop for when you kill him at the end of the campaign again.
