Rare loot relic

I just read on a different topic that the rare loot relic only increases the chance to drop greens. Is this true. I haven't taken it off for months only to find out that it is virtually useless.

I believe that to be true. It increases the chances of greens and I think maybe blues, which decreases chances for oranges. I didn't know about it either after a few months of play. My brother & I did two playthroughs to 50 with the relic, and didn't get a single orange. Took it off, and ever since then I've had no problems finding oranges.

Wow... How misleading. I guess it does say increases rare not legendary drops, i just assumed. Thanks

Supposedly it does help with a bit with some legendary drops, as this crowd sourcing project shows:
