When I'm farming for legendaries as Axton, is it a bad idea to let my sabre turrets kill the enemy? Do I need to kill them myself to allow a legendary to drop?



The idea that killing things with your action skill would reduce the legendary drop rate seemed so absurd initially that I almost downvoted the question. I mean, depending on your build, that could easily be the main way you kill everything. It would be extremely odd to penalize a large segment of players playing the game the way it was intended.

That being said, whether you or your follower kills something in Diablo 2 can have an impact on the magic find rate in certain rare circumstances, so I decided it wasn't completely ludicrous.

After about 15 minutes searching message boards, wikis, and guides, I see no reason to think that you should avoid killing things with your turret.

  • Well, it's also not "completely ludicrous" or "absurd" because the game says that the turret is a separate entity, but I like the point you made. – William Faker Mar 7 '17 at 1:40
  • +1 For all the reasons above. It just doesn't make sense for the turret to have this effect. Or any of the characters action skills. – Timmy Jim Mar 7 '17 at 3:15
