Retired Veteran Raider: [T14] 10/16H, [T15] 12/13H, [T16] 7/14H
Currently playing a Black Mage Scholar & Summoner Bard on FFXIV and crying that
RDMs don't exist yet SCHs are gimped WHMs and SMNs are gimped BLMs there's not enough to do in a week
If you don't have a legendary cloak come 5.4 (or are ready to get it, rather) you're so far behind anyway that you don't deserve the gear. Now, I do agree that it's a really stupid limitation for alts, but for main characters it's a great design. It allows Blizzard to have some creative direction with the difficulty of the boss. As we've seen with Oondasta, and under the new "faction-tag" model, it's nearly impossible for Blizzard to make a difficult world boss, not one that we can just run up to with ten groups and corpse-run until it's dead.
It is not enough for me to succeed, others must fail.
This is ridiculous. As someone who took a break this expansion I am continuously behind on the legendary despite it being "sped up". Knowing my luck with drops so far I may not even see this till near 5.5.
This has nothing to do with my ability as a player, or what content I raid. I could be a 13/13 HC raider right now but I can't do a boss because I didn't subscribe the whole expansion?
Before anyone says loyalty reward, I previously kept a subscription since vanilla.
It's 1 boss, why the QQ?
Just think of it as a heroic boss. How many players aren't able to do heroic content? It's 1 more boss to the list. Not the end of the world.
I dont get it why people are getting mad over this ? im a casual as you people call me since i do only LFR , i already have 2 chars at the last part of the cloak (the titan runestonex12 quest ) and i have also lost 3 to 4 weeks of lfr raiding , i dont see why people are getting mad over this im sure if you do your lfr (since doubt normal/hc raiders have problem with their cloaks) you will have the cloak till the patch gets released , blizz is giving the cloak to us aswell dont be ungreatfull other companies wouldnt allow casuals to obtain something like that.Now if you want ALL your chars to do it and you got 10 alts well just dont be greedy i got 6 classes and i only care about 2.
Interesting, but overall I doubt it will completely last. Maybe a one type thing.
I like this idea. Its rewards people who put in the effort for the legendary. As everyone gets to start the legendary chain the moment you hit 90, the only people who won't EVENTUALLY get access are those that don't want to participate in the chain. I don't have my cloak yet, but I know I will in time. If that means I don't get to kill a world boss on patch day, i can live with that. I'll still enjoy fighting it once I unlock it.
Even if warlocks can summon people without the cloak it's then at the discretion of the people with the cloak, because there is no other way for them to get there.
Similar to things like unlocking easier heroic bosses for people before they've cleared a full instance.
If you think they aren't capable of killing it, you're not going to summon them.
I tought on this expack they were reworking their catch up mechanisms.
I stopped playing for a while due to no dungeon (Yeah, I don't like doing lfr raid to gear up to then do...the same raid on normal.)
But now I feel like I just can't catch up due to this progressive legendary quest which would require me to go back and farm the first 2 raid for a few weeks... (which is a pain, because I hate LFR, since I just don't find it fun at all compared to normal (it also takes a while which I could use to do more interesting stuff...) and I guess barely no one is still running those raids on normal)
Soooo yeaahh... I think that's it for me this expack. I feel trolled as I just paid for 3 months.

I understand the argument for those who can't commit time to play if we were talking about killing Ra'den pre 5.4 or even perhaps a few heroic modes, some are quite nasty this tier. But being unable to finish 4 lfr's in one week at this point just means that you don't have time for games. If you don't have time for the game, then no you don't have time for the content.
Lets pretend each LFR wing takes 2 hours and it does not. That would be 8 hours in a week. Hell it takes 2 hours for Oondasta and for Galleon to spawn, how much time have we sat there looking at their spawn points. If you don't have 8 hours for an MMO a week, I don't think you have time to see ALL this content you are feeling so ENTITLED (There I chose that word too) to.
Just because YOUR content YOU want to see isn't right in front of your face, like "queuing for a pet battle" doesn't mean it is the heroic raiders that asked for it. But it is content in a progress line. I don't see you complaining that Ra'den isn't in LFR. Same shit, just something you don't seem to care to see apparently.
As for alts, this is a pain, but as people have posted, Celestials!! We also have LFR and Flex raids too. That's another WHOLE difficulty for people who just want shits and giggles with their friends. Blizzard is ever expanding the view-ability of content for the more casual playerbase that rewards items(see loot) of similar quality as well as rewarding the SAME items for things such as legendary quests. I don't see the issue here.

It's a nice mechanic but it really does suck for people with alts.
