    Double legendaries

    Does anyone know the percentage chance of opening a bag (Legionfall Recompense, for example), getting a legendary, then opening a subsequent bag just afterwards, and getting another legendary?

    About sushi to notepad odds.

    Maybe the BLP didn't go from 1 to 0 after the first one.

    Low, but RNG is RNG. I've seen armouries of people getting 4 in a couple of hours. \o/

    On the same character, no idea. Never seen it happen nor do I know anyone it happened to.

    I did get five legendaries over five characters back to back last week, though. (I had to rush through WQs and then leave. Forgot to open the bags, came back, opened them one by one. One of them had a legendary and the Dreamrunner mount in one.)
    This concept of wuv confuses and infuriates us.

    Low, first piece might have been under the BLP (Bad Luck Protection) and that would be reset then but just because the BLP is reset, doesn't mean you can't be lucky again. RNG is RNG after all.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    Funny you say that as I opened about 9 of those recompenses and got 2 legendaries. I can't remember if it was 2 consecutive bags or otherwise.
    Isn't it ironic how education is important, yet people forget all about it when they visit the internet?

    Possible, just highly unlikely.

    I have seen someone get 2 legendaries in less than 10 mins in heroic Vote before.

    Had a guildie get 2 legendaries within 20 minutes of each other, both from Emissary caches. This was yesterday.

    i got legendary 9 and 10 from 3 legionfall 100 supplies bags. so 2 in 5 seconds.

    my prot warrior alt with only 1 legendary needed about 25 legionfall bags and 8 daily caches from 4 quests in a zone to get his 2nd legendary(which has a higher chance than 3 and up)

    so yeh it's a lottery of rng.

    I got two in the span of 3 minutes about 4 weeks ago. Opened a loot cache from WQ's, then from Blingtron 6000 right after.

    A guildie of mine who had received his first legendary in January almost had this happen to him. He'd gone since January without a second legendary ever dropping for him, and he was pretty down about it. We were doing dungeons and he received two within ~45mins (no one was counting), but it was less than an hour.

    He deserved it, though.

    I had a Guildy pull 2 legiondaries back to back in a chain run of M+, so that was only a few minutes apart.

    It depends if you mean "Getting a legendary from legionfall cache, then getting a legendary from the next one", or if you mean "I bet I get a legendary from my next cache, then I will get another one from the next after that!". In the first example, you dont start your "math" until after you already got your first legendary. So the chance will be equal to getting a legendary from the cache with +0 bad-luck protection.

    In the second example the chance will be "Chance to get a legendary from cache + current bad-luck protection" times "chance to get a legendary from cache with 0 bad-luck protection"

    Edit.
    To simplify. The way you worded your question, its the same as "Whats the chance of getting a 6 on the die after having gotten a 6 on your previous cast". Which would be 1/6 as you already had gotten the first 6
