I see that many legendaries have 'unique on equip'. I understand this means I can't use 2 of them at the same time, but what happens if I have one already (say in stash) and find another one of the same item, can I pick it up?

Yes, you can pick it up.

The restriction only applies to when it is equipped. If you have one equipped, and another drops, you can grab it but not equip it.

Seems very unlikely this would happen though.

  • Considering I haven't found a single one, yes its really unlikely :). Just wanted to know as iirc there were such restrictions in D2

Yes, I had Kyoshiros Blade equipped and got another from Kadala which actually had better stats.

I then learnt that this was a unique legendary and that I could not dual-wield it! D:

  • All of the Legendaries are "unique equipped".
