Thanks @tdaniel and @Mr_Scooty. I understand that there are plenty of people who play with modified items in this game and arena and so we all have to be diligent to help identify them. Speaking for myself I have played this game for more than a few months now, enough to be #43 in legends found. I'm not sure why on some of my toons the number of legends found is really low but it seems like it's a bug perhaps for toons after the first slot. After the last patch allowing players to craft legendaries and externals this game is already easy enough as it is and I wouldn't want to play with modified items. That would take any joy from playing this game.
That said let's bring this thread back to its roots. I was able to get the right crystal roll on a piece of gear today and after making a good pet and adding the right set affixes I will be working on climbing the ranks of 2v2 arena.
