    Don't have it. Don't feel entitled getting it. Wouldn't say no if I got it handed on a silver plate. Your observation is false, inaccurate, and a self-reflection.

    Whats with all the necros lately.

    No you shouldnt beable to get anything they've discontinued its a complete joke and an admission of defeat as a gaming company. One of their reasons behind not allowing vanilla servers is that they dont want to go back. Well lucky for them hypocrisy has a name, and its called BMAH.

    The most ironic part of this is im sure most of you are viciously opposed to vanilla servers but still in favour of gearing yourself up in old gear. Instead ask yourself why we want the old gear?

    Its obvious a lot of people arent happy with the designs they're coming out with. Instead of focusing on the past like they apparently hate doing, focus on the future and create new sets that makes Benediction look like shit.

    I'm saying "Ignore the auction house, make getting it back worthwhile rather than a purchasable skin". And yes, I've had it for a long time, why do you think I've fangirled over Eris Havenfire for so long? Prior to Anduin, she was our only actual Priest in game, and she was already dead!

    Generalisations are bad. I have one, yet I don't care a tiny bit whether it will be available or not. Just like other rare things in the game, its only your own memories of getting rare items that make them special.

    I got it back in the day, and I say - we should get a new, better looking one. Bringing back the old one will piss people off, but putting in an updated quest with a higher polygon count reward? Everyone wins

    And I get to dual-wield Anathemas

    Yeah, I like your idea! Though Blizzard tend to hate priests with a passion, and its hardly possible they'd do something like special epic quest chain for us.

    If they would lend me an hour at one of their dev desks, I could update the graphics on it, rename it, and stick the old quest back in with new NPCs

    Or...hmmm... if I were to break into Blizzard HQ during lunch break, nobody would notice me *tiptoes in accompanied by staccato violin notes*

    I already have mine... I think if they made it as hard to get as it was in Vanilla, sure, why not? But if they do that, they might as well create a new Item that every priest would want to get. It would be too much work to create a new quest chain, for an old (at this point) vanity item.

  11. #131
    It was already easy enough to get in WOTLK/Cata. We don't need every single noob priest running around with it.

    I have my Benediction/Anathema since Vanilla and I transmog every staff I get immediately to B/A because I love it. I would hate to see everyone walking around with it.

    Let the old players have their fun with showing of their B/A.

    Instead of reintroducing B/A, Blizzard should make a whole new Priest staff with even better looks that B/A!

    A big hell NO! I earned my staff and am damn proud to show it off now. Same goes for my full tier 0.5 that's sitting in my bank (even if the damn thing is ugly lol). I had a hunter alt that didn't get his bow back then & don't support them bringing it back either.

    Na, I see it as a right of passage kinda. A nod to a veteran player who earned it through that vanilla grind. Yes I have one, but I don't think items need to be obtainable/recolored once they are removed in general.

    Yes. And the hunter bow. Still have some of the components in my bank...

    Shouldn't have been removed. Removing things sucks, and I wish people would shut up about exclusivity because removing items creates artificial exclusivity. Congrats you played the game between date X and Y, aren't you special?

    I have several exclusives of my own and couldn't give less of a shit if other people get them too.

    Removed in the pre Cata patch actually.

    And feel free to fuck off, there's no reason why it should arbitrarily only be available to people who played before Cata launch.

    I also have it since way back. But, yeah - so much this. Benediction and Anathema with higher res textures and more polys would be ideal. Isn't that sort of what they did for Sulfuras in Cata?

    I would support a quest line like it, but a different reward offered. I think the staves should remain rare. It could be interesting to see if they could implement something with the level downgrade tech they are working on.
    Main toon: Priest
    Alts: Rogue, Druid and Paladin plus many, many more.

    And even better, also offer a Mace + Off-hand, Dagger + Off-hand and a Wand + Off-hand quest reward in such a quest line for those who like Maces/Daggers/Wands instead!

    Its similar to Hand of A'dal, current CMs.

    If you were on the Hand of A'dal quest-line before WotLK was released, you would still get the title afterwards. To this day.

    CMs are currently a complete joke due to all the additional gem slots.

    I like the reskin solution used for Amani War Bear personally. Same model, noticeably different skin. New peeps get the model and old peeps get the prestige.
