We all know that legendary items in reaper of souls are far more powerful than before, and they have wonderful special effects that make your adventure exciting and impressive. Let's see what exactly they are.
You can drain life from enemies around you, the percent of which is estimated about 2%. In ros, the basic life is above 400 thousand. That is to say, without any help of other items your blood is quite enough to fight. As to the effect range, it needs time to test. Life steal is aborted by blizzard and this is stronger than that.
Prevent all arcane/poison damage and heal yourself for 25% of the amount prevented. Also there are items for frozen damage drop in the game. The most troublesome affixes from enemies in ros are poison, electrical and arcane damage. If your character equip with legendaries like this, game experience would be great.
34% chance to explode in a tan of knives for 200% weapon damage when hit. This legendary is not a surprise but its special effect absolutely is! Some elites with tan affixes are no longer difficult to defeat if you get this legendary.

Its special effect is not the key. They key is that this legendary amulet increased attack speed, critical hit damage and critical hit chance at the same time.
