Today did MV HC and we got grand total of 2 offspec items and 10 shards, while our raid can still use lots of upgrades (cloth classes dont have single HC item on them).
At least now I will be able to actually USE the fucking reward in my T14 helmet if T15 refuses to show. Blue weapon can't into Wrathion. FFS. I hate whole sha-touched thing with a passion because of my legendary bad RNG on weapon drops (calculated my odds actually, chances are 0.8% of NOT having any sort of epic weapon after all my rolls, took both normal drops and LFR style rolls into account) and stuff like that (660 agil!!!) shouldnt be linked to pure RNG on drops. It could be just 500 agil enchant or smth, extra socket working only with sha touched weps? why? In the end I did all that shit involved in wrathion questline for NOTHING. BIG FAT NOTHING.

Thats some bad luck bro, I know your pain. But imagine that - during DS progression our static got over 20 dodge trinkets (16 in a row) and not a single intellect one. And its when we had 5 casters in 10 man team. Literally everyone in our guild had that trinket just for the memory. Chances of this is way below 0.01% (16 useless trinkets in a row!)

I think what people are forgetting is that this likely will NOT be a simple flat increase to a stat without some other interaction with the overall Legendary questline. Consider what everyone is already complaining about: that PvP players should not be forced to PvE, and vice versa. Should this be a simple flat increase to a stat (+1000 Spirit/Intellect/Strength/Agility), many players would undoubtedly go for this regardless of their play in PvE or PvP.
The way that the Legendary gems in 5.1 and the subsequent socket in 5.2 were deterred from PvP is their requirement that it be used in conjunction with the Sha-touched weapons. We can only assume that the Legendary CotH meta gem has a similar restriction to prevent any player from any spectra place it in any ordinary helm. Could it be required that the gem be placed in a tier-set helm? Unlikely. There doesn't seem to be any cohesion with the previous patches' themes -- a notable synthesis of the Sha and the Legendary gems.
Given the above, I think it's more-than-likely that the Legendary CotH meta gem will have some kind of forced interaction with the Sha-touched weapons, making them, in some way, significantly more powerful than the current tier's weapons and continuing their relevancy through 5.2.
... or does everything I'm saying sound stupid? -_-
No, it makes sense. I think it's a reasonable thought, but I don't see it being the case.
We'll find out soon enough when the gears are datamined. Either a few helmets will have a special socket, or they won't. But either way, I think there'll initially only be the (normal meta or CotH-enabled socket) and then in 5.3 we'll add another socket as part of the continuing chain.

bow .. drop wee
and from that thing on it was simple collect lot of crap
uldu - hammer for healers .. kill a lot of bosses ... boom
icc - axe ... kill realy a lot of shit
fl - tare (atelast nice questline) but still collect looots of crap
dw - wee every roq in this game gets legendary :P
and now it's every fucking player that does lfr gets some funny stuff that is "legendary" .. for me that gem is more like a epic gem nothing realy special about it.
atleast all the old legendarys had a great proc, a awesome design and sometimes a questline. getting a gem from a dude is just "normal" nothing legendary to me.
meta gem, well to make it pvp useless they could add "incrase dmg to pvemobs by 10" and boom problem solved
500 str/int/agi + 500 haste/crit/mast/dodge/parry/stam/hit/exp gems.
I listened to the spoiler sound files and it sounded as if you wouldn't get the metagem unless you kill Ra-den.
If you trolled me, then grats.
