So what are the chances of a legendary engram turning into an actual legendary item? Not very high, it seems, according to the number-crunching results of one team of four players.

After gathering 290 green engrams, 250 blue engrams and 55 purple engrams (they're far harder to farm), here's what they found:

Green Engram Rarity

Blue Engram Rarity
