theres a legendary ashbringer and frostmourne that only gms can obtain are we supposed to count those? the necklace dropped because the loot table was bugged and someone forgot to check it. they were nice and let the guy keep it
OMG 13:37 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Cleave unto me, and I shall grant to thee the blessing of eternal salvation."
And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"
With that said, you've missed the second key point regarding that item. Go back and read the wowhead page again. Find a comment written by someone who was upset that it was a necklace. I'll wait here.
First of all I never said that it was not supposed to be in game but it was never supposed to be part of the loot table, there are many items in the game files that are not meant to drop either because Blizzard changed their minds mid-development, which according to the Wowhead page appears to be the case with this item, or they are not intended for the players such as Martin Fury. If you look at the armoury page of the only player that has ever received this item you will see that there is no tooltip when you mouse over it and the according to Wowpedia and Wow Wiki it was removed from the loot tables the very same day as it first dropped suggests that it was not intended for players to attain it in game.
Most importantly this thread is about the expectation players will have when they are told that by completing a long quest line they will receive a legendary item which based on all previous expansions legendary drops they will assume to be a weapon. To say that they should not expect a weapon based on a single, unintended drop that of the millions of players who have passed through WOW over almost nine years only one of them has ever acquired is absurd. It is like telling the little girl who dreams of becoming a princess when she grows up that it is a viable career path along with lottery winner.
The only thing interresting about this cloak is wether its transmogable or not.
Don't see why people are getting butthurt that the legendary this go-around isn't a weapon. Just because every legendary (for the most part) prior to this was a weapon doesn't mean this one has to be. Besides, I figured the painting was on the way, with how everyone was getting a legendary (like every class/spec) this expansion...the last thing it would be is a weapon.
The cloak is ONE single item. It is NOT the Legendary Item the Golden Lotus is said to deliver. Maybe, people should just put their helmets back on and cool their jets until all is revealed in 5.4.
Honestly the fact you need to resort to childish insults about running back to mommy shows the weakness of your entire, flawed argument.
There are no specifics since 5.4 is still in its infancy. AND, those of us who have been around long enough know that just because they SAY it will happen, doesn't always MEAN it will happen. So people need to settle down and let it at least hit the live servers before getting all -There are some additional fragmented quests-- The Usurper appears unfinished, but implies there will be some sort of reward from the Golden Lotus for killing Garrosh.
